About the class

This semester, students in Berkeley's Interactive Device Design class (CS294-84/ME290R) spent 14 weeks designing, prototyping, and fabricating novel smart products. This was the inaugural class to use the new CITRIS Invention Lab - a new project space equipped with accessible rapid prototyping and digital fabrication equipment.

Come join us to celebrate the opening of the lab and see what the student teams created.
