Good News Friday!

A group of CU Engineering students in a 2011 Spring Semester class taught by Associate Professor Melinda Piket-May are working on projects to design simple adaptive technologies that aid increased independence for some of the individuals Imagine! serves. Below are some videos of the students demonstrating their projects. The videos are short (most are around a minute - except for the first one which is about 3 and a half minutes) and well worth your time – this is some amazing stuff.
