Senior Project Presentation

I was fortunate enough to work with students from Alfred State College's School of Engineering.  They did some research on my block system, including engineering analysis and prototype work.  They did a truly amazing job!

These wonderful students are: Shaun Anderson, Josh Carr, Kaitlyn Corbett, Eric Drumm and Tim Riehlman.  Truly great job guys!

Here are some images from the powerpoint presentation they gave (there are many more!)
