Five students were recently challenged to live and work in a glass cube on MIT’s North Court for four days as part of InCube, a global startup competition.Tasked with reimagining the ambulance of the future, the students designed a solution they think can help paramedics more accurately identify patients who are in critical condition. “It was so much fun,” says junior Samuel Salomon. “I don’t think we would have had such a good experience if we weren’t living together in the cube. It was an intellectual campground.”
