MAKER: 48-hour Rapid Prototype DevelopmentThis paper will provide the details of several prototypes developed by student teams in aweekend challenge in response to industry sponsored “Needs”. The prototypes fall into twocategories: 1) wearable electronics for medical and other uses, 2) devices of value to firstresponders. In the first category, possible prototypes include: a non-contact device formonitoring vital signals for neonatal babies and a device which alerts people when a baby is leftin the car. In the first responders category, possible prototypes include: device which allowstracking location of responders working in disaster situations and device which enablesfirefighters to determine concentration of toxic chemicals when arriving at a site.The goal of the paper is to present each prototype in sufficient detail and also provideinformation on the types of hardware and software support provided during the weekend activityto allow students to successfully develop their prototypes.
