Make48

This unique series provides an inside look at the steps and strategies involved in developing a product, from concept to completion. Teams develop an idea, make a prototype, then pitch their ideas to a panel of industry judges -- all in 48 hours. Mentors offer advice to the teams on product design and development as they work on their inventions. In the end, three products are chosen to be developed for the marketplace.
