Unisys and Walnut St. Labs Partner for Innovative Prototyping Contest

Walnut St. Labs, an Innovation Lab in West Chester, PA, is partnering with Unisys Corporation to hold a product prototyping competition.

The prototyping competition, to be held at Walnut St. Labs across five weeks starting on April 15, will be geared towards user interface and user experience designers. The winners of the competition will receive a cash prize and will have the chance to meet with Unisys to discuss details of their design. Both Unisys and Walnut St. Labs will deliver eight micro courses during the competition in areas like Rapid Prototyping and Design Thinking.

“This is what we always dreamed about doing — elevating innovation by partnering with great companies like Unisys and doing innovative things,” said Chris Dima, Founder and CEO of Walnut St. Labs. “The team at Unisys understands innovation and will be a super productive partner.”

Walnut St. Labs was formed at the end of 2013. Its mission is to foster innovation through co-working, weekly events and technology incubation.

“Unisys has a long, proud history of innovation,” said Jim Thompson, chief engineer and vice president of engineering and supply chain at Unisys. “We also see a new wave of ideas from innovation labs like Walnut St. Labs, and we want to be a part of that. By combining Unisys’ tradition of innovation with the capabilities of Walnut St. Labs, we can have the best of both worlds.”

Over the course of the next few weeks, Walnut St. Labs and Unisys will be announcing details of the competition. Applications to participate are being accepted beginning April 1.
