Future Looks Bright!

Great job by those young engineers! I would like one of the smart bikes - I always have trouble knowing what gear to shift on my ten speed when the terrain changes. I also would like that toolbox for our garage - my only request would be that they add an additional feature that solves the problem we always have - remembering to replace the tools in the proper place when the job is complete! 

I wonder if they will be attempting to bring any of their designs to market. We see a lot of senior projects (hubby teaches electronics at the college level) but the logistics of bringing a prototype through the product development and marketing process seems formidable at the student level - budget being one of the limiting factors. However, these efforts are always great props for future interviews and speak very highly of the person's abilities in so many ways. Bringing these projects to completion involves multiple skill sets and is no small task! Congratulations to each one of these young people!
