Extreme By Design is the story of three Stanford students who design low-cost products that meet basic needs of the world's poor. During a 6-month d.school course, Design for Extreme Affordability, they travel to Bangladesh and Indonesia and race to build life-saving breathing devices, IV medicine infusion pumps, and fresh water storage systems.
