Video: 150 Years Of Weird, World-Changing Innovation

Published January 7, 2011

To mark MIT’s 150th anniversary, the MIT Museum exhibits 150 objects — many of them voted in by the community — that tell the story of world-changing and quirky innovation over the years.

I was lucky enough to be the first reporter to see the new exhibit on Wednesday, as the staff raced to finish the installations. It was a lot of fun.

The “MIT 150″ exhibition opens to the general public Saturday, Jan. 8. I’ll talked more about this story on Radio Boston.

My thanks to Josie Patterson at the MIT Museum for her help with this story.
