After play testing and design reviews, each team narrowed down their four concepts to one. The teammates worked together to built a higher level works-like and looks-like model of their top concept. The teams presented these higher level sketch models at the Design Consulting at the MIT museum. The following are images of the physical items that were presented. Many teams had software and circuit designs that are not shown below.

Barnyard Booms: a set of barnyard animal themed drums for infants that play animal sounds when tapped


Color DJ: a handheld toy that allows you to manipulate sounds with different motions
