Extreme Research

Extreme Research will happen during the Summer of Extreme Design-Build. Extreme Research involves problem solving by complete novices, working as a swarm, briefed by the Product Lead on critical development paths. In this process, an intedisciplinary team of engineers, entrepreneurs, and artist will gather around finding out key resources online and on the phone - contacting various support organizations, online forums, and many other resources, while documenting all the resources.

This is a social experiment in uncovering how technology transfer can happen at a rapid times scale, compressing months of research into days to arrive at full design. Key to this is problem breakdown into small chunks, while allowing a team of at least 24 people to develop the design.
