23 year old Masters student in Trinity College. I'm trying to develop a new robot to help children in hospitals.
Masters student - my project is focused on developing a robot that can help children in hospitals.
The robot I am trying to develop is a companion for children that have to go into hospitals. The robot needs to be able to keep them company and help the kids to stay calm during their stay in the hospital. It can breathe, stay warm and light up in case the kids are afraid of the dark.
My Typical Day
I work in the Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering building in Trinity.
What I'd do with the money
I would use it to buy a 3D printer for a school.
