The Manhole Project
The manhole project went from an idea to a fully functioning crazy contraption in just 5 days during the MIT Design Innovation Workshop conducted by the MIT Media Lab at PESIT, Bangalore.
The idea was to create two blackboxes that can seemingly teleport objects between them! You put a blue or red coloured ball into one box and it pops out of the other. Doesn't matter if the other box is right next to it or in another country!
Here is a concept video that we created to better explain what we were trying to get at.
Our final 'product' resembled a crazy contraption more than a "blackbox", but it worked. And that's what matters in such hackathons anyway isnt it!
