Design for (Your) Product Lifetime Challenge, organized by Core77, aims to develop a compelling new "smart" product that is repairable and designed to last. The competition is sponsored by Autodesk and ifixit.
The contest challenges designers to design a smart product that is smarter environmentally; a product that can be repaired and will stand the test of time, even if some of its components need to be replaced.
Rethink the design of average household appliances, electronics, lighting, toys-any and all kinds of products that are ripe for a lower-impact redesign.
Design for (Your) Product Lifetime Challenge is open to students age 18 or older, from anywhere in the world, currently registered in an educational institution at the college/university level.
The deadline for entries is November 15, 2012.
