GoGreen at SolidWorks Design Contest

go_green & Solidworks announces a design contest for Indians.  The primary motive is to build environment friendly products. Quoting from the mother site.

“Now that you have come and got a feel of the community we feel it’s time to put into action a promise we made to ourselves while conceptualizing this community. We promised to make this place a hub of activity all the year long. The activity could be anything from an expert’s opinion to a nationwide contest.

The world is undergoing a transformation, where mere ideation is no longer thought to be “pathbreaking”- unless a practical implementation is made possible. Being environment friendly, while not compromising on efficiency and/or bringing increased functionality, is one such revolution. Revolutions need innovativeness in product design tweaked to suit the needs of the day; something that has never been thought to be so crucial.

DesignBetterProducts celebrates the spirit behind such world changing endeavours and is proud to present the GoGreen@SolidWorks contest.
