2.009 Product Design Presentations
December 6, 2013
This fall, students of 2.009 (Product Engineering Processes) created innovative products around the theme of "be well." Working in teams, the students had three months to build their ideas — and turn them into commercially viable products.
On Dec. 9, the class, led by Professor David Wallace, culminates in a final presentation and product launch. Each team presents its prototype and a business model for commercializing the product.
Presentations start at 7:30 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium, followed by a reception in the lobby.
This year’s products include: an injury diagnostic tool for racehorses, an automated drill bit sorter, a helmet-integrated navigation device, an interactive yoga mat with instructional signaling, a wrestling mat cleaning and sanitizing appliance, a pacesetter for competitive athletes, a therapeutic companion robot, and a bicycle-drawn farm stand that delivers food.
