This Dream Machine idea has been elaborated as part of the MyMachine DreamsDrop Campaign 2023

We selected this Dream Machine idea to be part of the MyMachine DreamsDrop 2023 Campaign. 

Design Students at the Tecnológico de Monterrey (Mexico) have been working on these ideas to translate them into a Proof-Of-Concept. 


A proof-of-concept is a demonstration of a product in which work is focused on determining whether an idea can be turned into a reality, and how this could be done. It validates a product idea. (It is not a Working Prototype. That is the next step in the design flow: developing a prototype is a loop process in which product design teams constantly review and refine the concept until all needs are fully met.)

The students had limited time and needed to use cheap materials to demonstrate the concept. The results are astonishing.
