Inventions: Student Showcase


SproutsIO is a smart, soil-free appliance that grows fresh fruits and vegetables indoors.

This exhibition features inventions and kinetic sculpture by MIT students, most of which were created as part of students' coursework. Chosen from submissions by a variety of MIT departments and labs, these projects exemplify MIT's legendary values of creativity, ingenuity and practical problem solving.

From the SproutsIO's smart-phone controlled appliance that grows fruits and vegetables in a soil-free environment, to WalkAcross, a display that shows real-time interactions between visitors in a space, to DrumTop, an interface that converts everyday objects into musical instruments, Inventions: Student Showcase covers a range of participatory concepts that will shine a light into our future.

Inventions: Student Showcase is a collaboration between the MIT Museum and the MIT Museum Studio, and is supported by the Council for the Arts at MIT.
