The Beginning of Something Really Excellent

With the beginning of a new year, it is time to welcome in a new set of innovative minds. The class of 2014 is one of the largest that EDD has seen to date with 22 students involved. For this year, Jay Murray took the position of Project Manager and will be making sure everything gets done in a timely and orderly fashion. For today's class, Jay had us present a feasibility report of someone else's project. From there, it is the class's job to submit their votes and pick the projects that we work on for the year. The top ten projects that we will now be selecting from include: a safer seatbelt, a GPS watch, a medical/athletic brace, an elementary engineering education program, a rapid prototyping interface, a more comfortable crutch, a fuel exhaust recovery system, a better voice recognition software, an automatic pill dispenser, and an electronic conservation system. All of these projects would be fun to pursue, but the question remains, which ones will the class choose?
