    Back in 2005, MIT engineering graduate student Limor Fried was procrastinating hard on finishing the "busy work" of her final thesis by building her own portable music player. From scratch.

    Her classmates couldn't help but notice her personal style, and they asked how they could build their own. Fried started selling little kits with all the electronics they needed to get started.

    It became a nice little business for Fried, and she saw the opportunity to turn her passion for teaching people to make stuff into an entrepreneurial opportunity.
