Occasionally, cool non-motorized things come out of MIT. One of my peers and classmates, Amy (who was on here last for her smaller-more-elegant-and-more-functional-than-anything-i’ll-ever-build go-kart) is responsible for a disturbingly high amount of them.
In the last week (WEEK! WEEK! it takes me an entire week to start to think about possibly preparing to plan to begin to design something that might be waterjetted in the future) or so before she left MIT, she finished this thing. It’s like, a rolling TIG weld, and totally kicks ass.
