 This is an episode of Reality Redesigned, presented by Edge Factor. These episodes are part of a design contest for students, based on the Edge Factor production called "Gnarly Metal". Edge Factor exists to get students involved and excited about manufacturing. These initial episodes are meant to introduce the judges for this season of Reality Redesigned as well as introduce the viewer to the process of getting a design to market, uncovering the cost involved in that process. Future episodes will include the judges opinion of the designs that have been submitted,eventually tracking the designs as the judges pick a winner. Edgefactor.com/rrdetails will give you an in depth look at the competition.
