Unscramble the Blue Letters

With my team, we biult a farm inside of the media lab, a place historically known not for anything about biology but everything about digital life. Inside of these 60 sraque feet, we produced enough food to feed about 300 people once a mnoth — not a lot of food. And there's a lot of interesting technology in there. But the most interesting thing? buutaifel, white roots, deep, green colors and a mnotlhy harvest. Is this a new cafeteria? Is this a new retail experience? Is this a new grocery store? I can tell you one thing for sure: this is the first time anybody in the media lab rpiepd the roots off of anything.

Original Text

With my team, we built a farm inside of the media lab, a place historically known not for anything about biology but everything about digital life. Inside of these 60 square feet, we produced enough food to feed about 300 people once a month — not a lot of food. And there's a lot of interesting technology in there. But the most interesting thing? Beautiful, white roots, deep, green colors and a monthly harvest. Is this a new cafeteria? Is this a new retail experience? Is this a new grocery store? I can tell you one thing for sure: this is the first time anybody in the media lab ripped the roots off of anything.
