The first-of-its-kind “invent-a-thon,” hosted by the Inventors Center of Kansas City, brought together 46 “makers” spread across 13 teams over the weekend at Union Station. The goal: invent new products within the 48-hour deadline. A sponsor, Scott Warren (from left), watched as a team from the University of Kansas including William Dufresne, Gannon Tullock and Matt Caulovic worked on their product presentation hours before pitching their invention to judges during the final hours of the event, which concluded Sunday. Levi Wilkinson and Amanda Wells (right) were on hand to videotape the action.
