Crossing Borders to Advance VR Technology
Many talented engineers from around the world are seeking to connect and share with the technical community, regardless of the miles that divide, to find solutions to problems that cross borders.
How Much Does a Magellanic Penguin Weigh?
Aadithya has been working with the Penguin Sentinels Lab at the University of Washington to develop scales to passively measure weights and RFIDs of Magellanic Penguins in Punta Tombo, Argentina.
