Ready to be dazzled? Seven undergraduate students from North Dakota State University won DDC with
their aptly named project, “The Dazzle Box.” To address the challenge, T3AMNDSU built its container
in the shape of a truncated octahedron. This approach helped reduce stress upon impact and improved
stackability for transportation needs.
The team’s design consisted of three main components:
The unique exterior design of T3AMNDSU’s container was inspired by the theory of “dazzle camouflage.”
The team implemented brightly-colored tapes and flashing LED lights to potentially help disaster
victims easily locate the container.
