Bonk and Other MIT Creations

Posted 26 Dec 2001 at 15:58 UTC by steve Share This

MIT engineering students taking a Product Engineering Processes class, divide into teams each year to engineer, present, and market a product. This year's teams created six robot-like products including the Bonk, an amphibious toy; Niveus, a snow-blower; Arion, a water rescue vehicle; The Bartender; and iClimb, rock-climbing belaying system. While they are all remote-controlled rather than true autonomous robots, they still look like a lot of work (and fun).
