Future Tech Gadgets on Display at McMaster
HAMILTON - 3D YouTube videos and Skype broadcasts. A t-shirt that lets you monitor your heart beat. A detector that wakes sleepy drivers. Brain imaging. A robotic plane. Automated smart blinds. A fall detection and prevention system.
These are just a few of the 60 projects that will be on display by more than 200 fourth-year electrical and computer engineering students at McMaster University on Tuesday, April 6 as they present their final-year projects.
Everyone at McMaster and from the community is invited to view the projects. The event is being held in CIBC Hall on the third-floor of the McMaster University Student Centre from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The annual poster day provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to formally present their final year design projects, just as their graduate counterparts do with research findings. It also gives students the chance to gain feedback from faculty, peers and staff in their own and other disciplines.
The event, sponsored in part by RIM, also provides the community with the opportunity to have an advanced look at technology devices of the future in such fields as health and medicine, renewable energy, environment, transportation, entertainment, communications, aeronautics, robotics, and information technology. And it is a chance to meet some of the talented engineering students pursuing their development.
