MacGyver Design

Graham Henshaw of the Innovation Blog is sharing his Mechanical Engineering thesis - all about "Single-Session Design" - a term he coins to mean design under extreme time constaints. The thesis looks at how compressed design timeframes can lead to innovative and adaptive design breakthroughs - specifically using research from an engineering game show called Robot Rivals.

However, as Graham points out - the leader in Single-Session Design has to be MacGyver - a man who quickly devised functional design in short periods of time, using only available resources. He also rocked a mullet and was capable of flooring a man with one punch.
