A couple of weeks ago, I shared a video from the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Competition, which featured students who had designed a classroom barricade device.  Another video from the competition surprised me in a different way, as the students used a product that already exists (a mag-lock), but they used it to replace another product that already exists (a magnetic holder).

This jives with what I said in the Decoded article I posted Monday, called “Why Barricade Devices?”.  If the hardware industry is so complex that the students’ research didn’t turn up the existing products or help connect them with someone who could help, we need to get more user-friendly.
