In 2008, I co-taught a course at the MIT Media Lab called Techniques for Design and Fabrication, which introduced Media Lab and Architecture students to the technologies and skills needed to realize their graduate work. The course focused on four main subject areas: analog and digital electronics, mechatronics and materials.
The video above was shot and edited by Seth Hunter, who TAed and documented the complete course. For more information, visit: MAS.962 - Techniques for Design and Fabrication
