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.
