Tech Sandbox competition


ALAN BERNER / THE SEATTLE TIMES

James Wu with Team Thalia gets wired up to have his facial muscles control an electronic game at this year's Tech Sandbox competition. Five UW student teams gave demos of neural engineering, and were judged by industry members to determine a winner. This year's projects include wearable technologies and virtual reality for medical rehabilitation. Students participating are from bioengineering and mechanical engineering, neurobiology and bio-robotics. The competition took place at the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering at the University of Washington.
