Lockheed Martin Engineers Build Car In One Day
Engineers finished the car with nine hours to spare
You don't have to be a rocket scientist to build a car, but it helps.
Lockheed Martin challenged a crew of 200 engineers to use their problem-solving skills to build a car in one day, ABC 7 reported. Turns out, they didn't even need a full 24 hours. In just nine hours, the car was assembled. The engineers, who normally work on top-secret military space programs, started the day knowing nothing about building cars. By the end, they had assembled a car capable of traveling 100 miles per gallon.
What they built was a prototype for a highly efficient commuter car developed by an organization called WIKISPEED. But they did more than just assemble a car. The design had several flaws that engineers had to be overcome for the car to work. Lockheed Martin hopes the challenge revved up the engineer's creativity and sense of teamwork.
