Design Our Car Competition
Collaborative Manufacturing in the Emerging Technology Center
What do you get when you take imagination and creativity, focus it on a specialized topic or group of ideas, give it a platform for bringing all these ideas together, then multiply it by a factor of limitless possibilities? It looks something like a unique and growing process called collaborative manufacturing.
Rather than limiting ideas to one small group of company engineers, automaker Local Motors decided to throw open the doors to a whole design and engineering community — and that's how its cars are born. It's helped Local Motors build a base of passionate followers, and, as their slogan says, it's how they "build COOL cars"!
The IMTS community is getting its invitation to join this community through our car skin design competition. YOU can help design and select the skin that will appear on the IMTS car – to be built in the Emerging Technology Center at IMTS 2012!
The competition for the second card design begins July 10. Participants will have until July 31, 2012 to submit their ideas. Vote on your favorite designs in August.
The car skin design competition is new to the IMTS community so we wanted to share the "ignition key" or motivation behind the car with our IMTS design community. Review all the IMTS motivation ideas below to help you develop some ideas before the competition begins on July 10. Good luck!
