NASA Wearable Technology Symposium 2015
For the third year Georgia Tech students from the Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing Class traveled to Johnson Space Center to present their projects at the NASA JSC Wearable Technology Symposium. NASA mentors were able to try out the devices and prototypes constructed by students. Students were also able to meet their colleagues from other universities.
Manasvi Lalwani describes her experience “The NASA Wearable Technology Symposium was a great learning experience for me. Not only did I learn whilst working on my Wearable Haptics Project,but also from all the other teams that presented at the Symposium. What was most interesting to see was the difference in process of students from different backgrounds such as Industrial Design, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering. In my opinion, some of the best projects came from inter-disciplinary teams that were able to approach the project from many different dimensions. I also greatly enjoyed meeting with NASA mentors who were able to provide constructive feedback on our designs. One of the most memorable moments though was being able to go on a tour of the magnificent NASA Johnson Space Center that was nothing short of awe-inspiring.”
