Intel-Cornell Cup Results

We are happy to announce that we took home the Intel-Cornell Cup Grand Prize last week. We would also like to congratulate the other WPI team, Soft Robotic Hand, for taking home a First Place prize. There were a lot of other great teams there with awesome projects....

One Down, Two to go

WALRUS is enjoying our time at the Intel-Cornell Cup. We’ve completed our first round of judging and have two more in the morning. Here are some pictures of our demonstrations, including WALRUS meeting R2D2!

Off to Florida!

Wish us luck! We finished packing last night and are on our way to the airport! Shout out to Mathews Associates Inc. for letting us borrow BB2590 batteries when we arrive.
