Before you get all “zomg” on me. This is *not* the iPhone v2. MIT students are much more clever than that.
So this semester with my overwhelming courseload of two classes, one of my classes 2.008: Design and Manufacturing II gave me a taste of the various manufacturing methods including injection molding, casting as well as the tradeoffs between cost, quality, flexibility, and rate.
But as you well know by now, at MIT, nothing is ever simple and nothing is ever easy. Ergo, cue term project.

Subject: Your Mission v2.008
Your mission should you choose to accept is to build 50 yo-yos including at least three parts. This message will self-destruct in a minute. Bye!
So that was it and then we were set on our way to make some yo-yos.
We could have made a simple yo-yo…but everyone know that simple isn’t always the most exciting.
So we thought to ourselves, what else can we do:
A yoyo that whistles
A yoyo that has water
…wait for it…
A YOYO THAT DOUBLES AS HEADPHONES, so that is what we did.
