The pilot edition of Inventor ended today: ten days of training and intensive work in which five teams of students from the Polytechnic and the University of Turin were able to design, prototype and present their business ideas.
From February 9 to 19, 25 Inventors worked on the realization of their ideas with the support of mentors and experts in the field of innovation, within Fablab accessing all the digital machinery and tech gadgets necessary for prototyping.
The results presented by the 5 teams were amazing!
Novis: a table tennis racquet designed for the blind that allows you to play with sound signals
Matherialize: a system that allows you to visualize abstract concepts, such as mathematics, thanks to augmented reality
Parkin: an app that lets you locate the nearest parking space
Infranium: system for tracking and monitoring goods in industrial warehouses
Good Habits Lab: with Worky, the desk man who monitors your movements and tells you when you’re in a bad posture.
The projects were then evaluated by an exceptional jury: Riccardo Majocchi (CLN Group), Silvia Petocchi (CDI Italy), Shiva Loccisano (Polytechnic of Turin), Andrea Griva (Agnelli Foundation), Marco Cassino (Fablab Torino Manager) and Priya Kuber (Arduino India, Boomswift), who flew here from San Francisco to follow the boys in the path as tutors.At the end of the bootcamp, all participants were awarded the SEI Inventor diploma and an annual Fablab card.
We hope that from this experience our Inventors will bring home a wealth of new skills and the awareness that, working in teams and with the right tools, any idea can come to life.
