Joint tech firm and university research labs are absolutely all the rage these days, and one of the more interesting combos we first heard about last year -- Nokia and MIT -- officially opened its doors. The pair's new joint research facility in MIT's Kendall Square neighborhood will leverage research at MIT's CSAIL (Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory). What fun things this pair will produce has yet to be seen, but we can only imagine it'll be magical and wonderful -- perhaps a OCPC (One Cellphone Per Child) project, anyone? No? Fine.
