Fake It Till You Make It? MIT Creates A Theranos For Plants

2019-09-09 06:44:151 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

MIT researchers built a “personal food computer” that worked so poorly that demos had to be faked Theranos-style. According to Gizmodo, MIT's Media Lab is also busy trying to cover up its extensive financial ties to the late Jeffrey Epstein. The news has seriously damaged Media Lab's credibility and has led to resignation of its director, Joichi Ito. The project was a plastic hydroponic grow box filled with advanced sensors and LED lights. It would supposedly make it possible to replicate crop conditions from any part of the global. Unfortunately, it was a sham. MIT’s Open Agriculture Initiative director Caleb Harper resorted to faking demos. Ahead of big demonstrations to funders, staff were told to place plants grown elsewhere into the devices.
