T-minus 151 is an intense, team based, week-long project put on by the Industrial Design department at RIT. During the first week of the spring semester, each student in the program is put into a team with a first year, second year, fourth year, grad-student and third year as team manager. The teams are then introduced to a real-world partner who they will be designing for and competing with their peers on. Students are given 151 hours to develop a product which at the end of the week is displayed and judged.
This year's project sponsor was Modko, a modern lifestyle company based in Brooklyn who specializes with bringing modern pet products to consumers. Teams had the option to choose between designing a jumbo litter box, a cat play tree, a cat watering fountain or a pet carrying case. My team chose to design a modern cat watering fountain.
