Stop #1: ExCITe Center at Drexel University
In addition to that, we also got to see the Shima Seiki lab. This lab uses thin, strong material and sophisticated machines to manufacture strong, sensor-embedded fabric that can be used to create the most revolutionary wearable technology, like a phone charging dress or an exoskeletal glove!
The last lab we visited at the ExCITe Center was the Entrepreneurial Game Studio (EGS). EGS creates video games that help teach kids computer science. They also created the "World's Largest Architectural Video Game Display" by taking the lighting system from the Cira Centre and turning them into an interface for the video games, Pong and Tetris. How cool is that?!
Stop #2: GRASP Lab at UPenn
Stop #3: Fitly and ROAR For Good
Yasmine Mustafa, the founder of ROAR For Good, spoke to us about her product: a jewelry piece with a button on it that a person can easily press when being bullied or attacked and it will call for help immediately. This technology will help people feel more protected and safe in their everyday lives. Both of these products were very inspirational for technology we could possibly create!
