This was an exciting week for the Innovation Lab. In the mist of preparing for our debut at Long Island Maker Festival: we were included in a Newsday article, visited the Yale CEID, and got a demo of the new Z Space by Computer Logic.
The Innovation Lab was included in Tuesday’s article of Newsday “Long Island Maker Festival: 6 Things to Check Out,” for our 3-D printer build. At the festival we will also be showcasing a green screen demo, Google Cardboard, and Ultra Sound Sonar demonstration. For everything on the Newsday list, read the article below.
The Innovation Lab visited the Yale Center for Engineering Innovation and Design on. We were excited to see the strides taken by Yale in their own cross discipline lab. The Yale CEID is engineering focused but, calls for all different interests to get involved. They even have a sewing station, wet lab, wood shop and metal shop. They have a growing partnership with their medical personal, which sometime in the future will begin to hold classes in the CEID as other professors do.
On Thursday, the Innovation Lab was visited by Computer Logic Group, a small Long Island company that specialized in in Cloud Computing, providing business Customized IT Solutions, Data backup and Network Integration. CLG came in to show the lab a demo of their Z Space. The Z Space is a real world virtual reality system that blends the real world with the virtual, creating never-before-seen experiences, naturally integrated into life. The Z Space is being capitalized by the education system. Schools throughout Long Island are implementing the Z Space into their K-12 curriculum. The Innovation Lab employees got to dissect hearts and learn about the anatomy of lions. We’d like to thank CLG for coming in and showing us their innovative product.
