7 in 7 was an ambitious scheme to do seven creative projects in seven days. The Resident Researchers at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications program pioneered this venture beginning June 8th, 2008. The mandate was as follows:
- Do a creative project every day for seven straight days, starting Sunday, June 8th
- Projects must be completed in a day, so they need to be as compact as they are creative.
- Each project needs a name and documentation posted at the end of the day. It should be a stand-alone accomplishment.
A preview of project ideas included Physical Flight Tracker, Door Twitter Sign, Salad Dress, Robot Phone, Window Ghosts and an album about a dangerous water park. Resulting projects can be seen in the 7 in 7 Blog and on MAKE magazine’s blog as well.
