Stanford, California -- -When Stanford University kicked off its 2nd annual Entrepreneurship Week on Friday, Feb. 22, Stanford also launched the global Innovation Tournament, a fast and furious competition to see who could create the most value from rubber bands in only five days. Students were told on Friday afternoon that they had until Thursday morning to conceive and deliver their value and submit a short video online to present their results. They could form a team of any size, use as many rubber bands as they wanted and define value in any way they chose. Approximately 300 student teams from universities around the globe participated.
The results are great fun and some are really creative too.
If your job allows you to watch YouTube and you have an hour or so to idle, away, take a look at some of these.

Home page of winners at Stanford -- There are 16 videos here, all hosted on YouTube. Each is around 3 minutes long, so that's almost an hour of entertaining rubber-related videos. Enjoy!
