Katharine A. Smolley ’08 paints a wooden box at Friday’s SaveTFP Crafts Night with fiancé Jonathan L. Mercurio. SaveTFP puts on free events for the MIT community, ranging from Friday Night Coffeehouse to next Saturday’s Spooky Skate. For more information, see http://web.mit.edu/savetfp/.



Gabriel A. Ha ’11 sings the lead vocals to the MIT Cross Products’ rendition of “You Are a Child of Mine.” The Cross Products performed their fall concert in 10-250 on Saturday, Dec. 8.



Alumni join the MIT Cross Products for their alumni song, “The Reason We Sing.” The Cross Products performed their fall concert in 10-250 on Saturday, Dec. 8.



Leslie S. Nachbar ’10 of the MIT-Wellesley Toons co-ed a cappella group sings at the third annual Concert for a Cure on Saturday evening in 10-250. The show featured a cappella groups from many local colleges, and raised money for the Accelerated Cure Project, a multiple sclerosis charity.



Michael L. Stern ’09 discusses the Red Team’s fire safe microwave after the Product Engineering Process (2.009) final presentations on Monday evening. The microwave, shown partially disassembled here, contains built-in spark and fire detection systems, as well as an automatic, reusable fire suppression system built around commercially-available 50¢ carbon dioxide cartridges.



Professor David Wallace PhD ’95 (center) and several members of the Silver Team stand behind the team’s “Infinite Range” prototype following the Product Engineering Process (2.009) final presentations on Monday evening. This cooktop featured a touchscreen interface and an array of 95 independent heating and sensing elements intended to accommodate various pieces of cookware placed at arbitrary locations on its surface.



Jared A. Sartee ’09 unfolds “elika,” the Green Team’s collapsible designer coffee table, at the Product Engineering Process (2.009) final presentations on Monday evening. The coffee table featured carbon fiber and stainless steel components, and folded flat with a twisting motion, permitting it to be slid under a couch or hung on a wall.



Members of the Yellow Team take down their ModuWall portable do-it-yourself wall system following their final presentation for the Product Engineering Process (2.009) on Monday evening. The wall system used vertical posts, composite panels, and flexible strips with industrial mushroom-head Velcro (used to attach armor to tanks) to provide privacy and sound isolation for roommates.



J. Kim Vandiver PhD ’75 and Wenxian Hong ’10 play with a prototype of the Blue Team’s “DOT it” portable Braille label maker after the Product Engineering Process (2.009) final presentations on Monday evening. The label maker used battery powered electronics and servo motors to emboss Braille characters into commercially available Braille labeling tape.



Audience members attending the Product Engineering Process (2.009) final presentations sat in the aisles of room 34-101 on Monday night, as most or all seats were taken. The room nominally seats 325 people.
