The "Holopix" cabinet complete! - This is the end result of the "Holopix" project. My role was to take the the software and R2-D2 model (designed by students at the CMU ETC) and implement it into RoboWorld at the Carnegie Science Center. My favorite feature is the short-throw projector hidden away in the cabinet behind the image of C3PO. I'm quite pleased with the results!
"Basketball freethrow" - In this activity, a computer records the number of shots taken vs the number of baskets made and compares the accuracy to that of a huge robot arm in the cage next to the activity.
