Last fall Bayard Design consultant Matthew De Remer participated in a weekend long event at the MIT Media Lab dedicated to improving breast pump technology for nursing mothers. The “Make the Breast Pump Not Suck” Hackathon was a multi-disciplined event encompassing engineers, designers, lactation consultants, nursing mothers and other interested parties. Matt’s team ultimately won “Most Outstanding User Focused Design”.
Footage from the event was made into a short documentary that has now been uploaded to YouTube documenting the experience.
