CWRU well represented at CES
More than 30 Case Western Reserve University students, staff and alumni shared their inventions, startup ventures and entrepreneurial resources on a global stage this month at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), a showcase of next-generation innovations. This marks the third year in a row that Case Western Reserve University exhibited the most student startups of any university in the world.
Among those who represented CWRU at the conference was undergraduate student Xyla Foxlin, whose pairable teddy bears "transmit hugs" across towns and continents. The Chronicle of Higher Education called her invention a "breakout student project" at the show. Undergraduate Radhika Vazirani presented a digital Doppler display that attaches to implantable Doppler sensors used in hospitals to measure blood flow.
Also representing CWRU at the show was the Larry Sears and Sally Zlotnick Sears think[box], one of the largest university-based makerspaces in the world. Over the past three years, think[box] has generated more than a dozen patented devices.
