Cardboard and scissors, scotch tape and coffee stirrers

I am working through an idea for a research project. If it works out, it’s going to involve brilliant grad students, custom electronics, motion control equipment, real-time sensors, interesting software, perhaps some serious applications to both healthcare and computer gaming, and maybe a spin-off company to help bring it all to the world in an economically self-sustaining way.

But things never start there. :-)

So today I spent some time with cardboard and scissors, scotch tape and coffee stirrers, and assorted other junk lying around the lab, starting to put together an early proof-of-concept prototype. Depending on how that works out, I may take things to the next stage.

Even if it doesn’t, I sure had a fun time!
