Weekend of Innovation: Toyota Tech Repurposed for Good

Repurposing a Toyota car technology for some other use was the idea behind their Ideas for Good campaign. Last fall, the company solicited ideas from everyday people about how to turn any of five different technologies into some other innovation. Five winners were announced May 9, 2011, and this past weekend those winners participated in a Prototype Weekend at Carnegie Mellon University near Pittsburgh, Pa., to turn their ideas into reality.
