the semester thus far

so i have been terrible at keeping this blog current, which is no surprise to myself. now that school has been going on for just over a month, my projects are starting to take their course.

i am in the motorola sponsored studio, and our goal is to design a communication tool for developing nations. during the research phase, our class was broken into groups, and i was part of the group assigned to africa. we created a blog about our research, so check it out!

it's been pretty fun so far working on this project. my concept is an educational device that utilizes IR cameras to create a digital whiteboard for teachers. africa has a 60% illiteracy rate, and around 46million children do not attend school. the aim of this device is to teach students the basics of reading, writing, and math, as well as connecting with other students and information from around the world. i have a pretty good direction so far, but any comments, questions, or ideas on the project so far would be great!

other than that, the rest of my classes are of typical ccs fashion... lots of work. ill post some images of what im doing as the semester moves along.

and finally, i have to say that united are doing well so far. not the best of games today against sunderland, but we managed to nick a last minute equalizer and walk away with a point. we still sit top of the table, but that could change after the liverpool-chelsea match tomorrow! as always, when someone asks me who i want to win a liverpool-chelsea match, i hope both teams severely injure each other and walk away with a draw. if it were up to me, i wish both could lose the match, but thats impossible.
