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.
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.
