Yesterday we published a story on the MITAA homepage about whether or not now is a good time to launch a start-up, and one of the alums who I spoke to was Ted Acworth MBA ’07, founder of Artaic.

The story was not centered wholly on Artaic, so it didn’t make sense to include a torrent of photos of their work… but (thank goodness for this blog), now I’d like to take a few minutes to share some photos from their Web site.

(In case you didn’t read the story, Artaic uses custom graphics software and robotics to manufacture high-end mosaics for places like restaurants, hotels, and offices… though you could put one in your home—I’m sure it would be gorgeous.)

Anyway, take a look at their work. It’s incredible! We always knew MIT had great technological talent, but this is art.
