Get a Sneak Peek of New Products at NC State Lulu eGames Showcase
The Entrepreneurship Initiative at North Carolina State University is showcasing the student entrepreneurs and products developed as part of its eGames competition on Monday, April 29 from 2 to 3 p.m. in the McKimmon Center on NC State’s campus. Media coverage of the event is invited.
Products developed by NC State students include facial image-analysis technology that can be used on animals and humans to determine how personality hard-wires an individual to respond in certain situations or perform specific tasks, and a blind spot detection system for motorcycles that significantly improves safety on the road.
Other innovative prototypes range from next generation wakeboards and online tools for musicians, to the Book of Bobs, “the most extraordinary collection of stick figures ever seen.”
The Lulu eGames awards $40,000 in prize money across three different competition categories, including designs for a potential new product to business plans for new ventures. The annual competition is sponsored by Lulu and made possible by a gift from its founder and CEO, Bob Young.
The McKimmon Center is located at 1101 Gorman Street in Raleigh. Additional information about the Lulu eGames is available at http://ei.ncsu.edu/egames/.
