Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology (SMIT)
SMIT requires interns for prototyping and programming of a hybrid solar and wind
generator design. This project will require some electronics know-how, as well as at
least a cursory knowledge of programming data-logging (Processing/Java, php or
python is fine). You will be working to help engineer a prototype of a new-to-market
sustainable design product with the SMIT team (including ITP alum Raphael Zollinger
SMIT – Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology, LLC was founded by Teresita
Cochran (ITP ’05) and Samuel Cochran (Pratt BID ’05) in the spring of 2005.
SMIT is a sustainable design start-up company that is developing a new approach to
solar and wind power. We were honored to exhibit our first product GROW, a hybrid
energy delivery system inspired by ivy, at the Museum of Modern Art in the exhibition
Design and the Elastic Mind (Feb 19th – May 12th, 2008). The prototype has since been
acquired by the MoMA for their permanent collection.
Our mission is to create Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology.
We provide a sustainable relationship between our clients, our products, and the
SMIT’s work connects and provides for people in pursuit of a zero footprint lifestyle by
creating a rich portfolio of products and a dense network of relationships.
