2.009 Quest: Searching for a 'Perfect Product'

While my mechanical engineering friends in Indonesia have theses or final projects to do in order to graduate, students from the same major at MIT have sort of the same thing. What do we do for our final/ engineering capstone project? Everyone needs to take 2.009: Product Engineering Process class.

We need to come up with a product that has market, and satisfies users' need. Sounds easy, right? Not really. Each of us has to come up with 25 different product ideas in the first week of class, which adds up to 500 ideas per team, or 4,000 ideas in the whole class. Some of my friends come up with even more ideas!

There is nothing such as stupid ideas, they said. Photo taken by (I believe) Georgia.
