    After 11 weeks of building and debugging, the teams faced their final test on Wednesday night: presentations to a review board of faculty and representatives from industry, demonstrating proof of the concept and feasibility of the market. All six machines functioned as designed, and at the end of each presentation, the faculty members demonstrated their wallboard removing skills.

    Every year juniors and seniors in Design Projects (2.73) design and build machines to solve a particular problem presented by industry. This year's project focused on a mechanized wallboard installation machine. Six teams, with about 25 students and two faculty advisers per group, operated like a small company, incorporating engineering, prototyping, marketing, and, of course, bureaucracy.
