Overhead Robotic Gantry for Tethered VR Headsets

Tired of cables breaking presence in virtual reality? We are too.

Current high-performance virtual reality headsets require cable connections to a host computer. For room-scale VR, users must always be mindful of this cable since it poses not only as a tripping hazard, but also a detraction from the otherwise immersive VR experience. This autonomous cable management system is one solution to sucky cables.


MECH 423: Mechatronics Product Design

Over-engineering the soft-boiled egg with the ultimate kitchen gadget, PerfEGGctâ„¢.

Gone are the days of blindly timing and boiling eggs, being left with nothing but a solid, chalky yolk. As part of our final year mechatronics engineering project, we developed a non-invasive device to measure the oscillation of an egg suspended on a spring. By analyzing the oscillatory response of the egg, we were able to determine the yolk consistency with (questionable) accuracy.
