          Build18 Provides Chance To Create Products

          By Chriss Swaney

          Build18More than 140 Carnegie Mellon engineering students tapped into their entrepreneurial DNA with a hackathon, dubbed "Build18," to display a cache of tech savvy prototype products - from a robotic first-aid kit to a bicycle sporting an automatic transmission.

          Some of the projects showcased included a robotic Halloween candy dispenser, a programmable T-shirt embedded with LEDs to allow the user to change the graphic design on the fly and a Lego-inspired tool to teach digital logic to high school students.

          The festival evolved out of ECE students' desire to designate time during the semester to work on their own creative technical ideas and to realize out-of-the-box solutions to real-world problems.

          "We operate under strict deadlines and limited funding as is the case for most entrepreneurial startups," Buchan said.

Katz worked with Ivana Stevens, Winnie Leung and Millwe Sukmar on the project, which can detect and mimic a human hand's position. The hand also can play Rock, Paper, Scissors against a human opponent.
