Designing Outside the Box Turns into HUGE Wins [Podcast]

How hard is it to step out of the box (as a designer)?

Unless you are an entrepreneur, you must abide by very rigid requirements, with little flexibility for your designs.  Also, coming up with a completely new design that breaks the mold can be intimidating to others, and may not pass the consumer approval test.

In this Born to Design podcast, I am talking with Jonathan Schultz, a young entrepreneur and Team Leader for BattleBots Team HUGE.  HUGE was a revolutionary new design for a fighting robot;  most other bot designs are much smaller and lower to the ground.  As Jonathan will tell you, many thought that he “had no chance” in winning any battle for BattleBots 2018 season with his very HUGE design.  However, they surprised everyone, and became a crowd favorite.

Jonathan talks all about the strategy in preparing for battles, some of his team’s HUGE wins, and design changes he had to make for the BattleBots 2019 season, including those crazy large flexible wheels.
