The MIT Media Lab promotes antidisciplinary culture -- mixing and matching of seemingly disparate research areas. The Lab creates technologies such as wearable computing, tangible interfaces, and affective computing. Faculty members, research staff, and students at the Lab work in over 25 research groups and initiatives on more than 450 projects that range from digital approaches for treating neurological disorders, to advanced imaging technologies that can "see around a corner," to the world's first "smart" powered ankle-foot prosthesis.
The Lab is supported by more than 80 members who provide the majority of the Lab's approximately $75 million annual operating budge.
