Six interdisciplinary student teams will be showcasing the intellectual property they translated, commercialized, and illustrated for the competition. There will be an opportunity for the audience to vote on their favorite team and the crowd favorite will win $500!
Here are the top 6 teams and their ideas:
A-Team: Horus redirects Boeing’s satellite Hyperspectral Imaging technology (“HSI”) inward to visualize previously unseen cancer biomarkers in real time to reduce cost, risk, and complications associated with cancer diagnostics.
[m]brace: [m]brace is an adhesive tracking device that reports real time information about people’s alcohol intake levels.
Nano Syntech: Nano Syntech produces self-sustaining power within wearable technology through proprietary material systems designed to continuously and autonomously charge wearable devices and reduce charging frequency.
OASIS: Oasis is a software middleware firm specializing in virtual reality (VR) eye tracking technology that helps the end user by preventing nausea, especially in long term use, via personalized image projections and benefits the VR device maker by accumulating user attention data for potential marketing applications.
PerfecTemp: PerfecTemp develops and produces a high-end modular insulation—primarily for use in clothing—that dynamically adjusts thermal properties to provide maximum comfort to the user over a broad range of ambient temperatures.
VLMVM: StentIT allows for effective and rapid internal monitoring of stents’ structural integrity without costly imaging modalities.
