SDSM&T Holds Senior Design Fair To Showcase Technology

On Tuesday, April 21, the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology held a senior design fair that featured 59 projects, intended to show the public what the future of technology holds, Rapid City Journal reports. One project was a self-navigating robot in the shape of Wall-E. The goal, according to Charles Feltman, one of the robots creators, was to have the robot be recognizable so children would be interested in the projects as well.

Another project is a navigation system for the visually impaired, which would send audio cues to a left or right earpiece letting a person know which direction to move.
