Red Bull Basement has returned to UOW for the second year in a row to encourage university students to use #techforgood. Last year we saw some fantastic inventions built with 3D printing, IoT and other emerging technologies. We’re wishing this year’s participants the best of luck as they start their builds.
A Message from Ken
It’s great to see Red Bull Basement back at UOW - it’s a fantastic way to give students a hands-on experience and the opportunity to apply what they learn to solve problems. I really enjoy being part of this event. Knowledge sharing is of key importance for me and it’s great to have the opportunity to encourage students to try new things, like building with virtual reality.
We cannot wait to see who the winner of the 2019 event is! Best of luck to you all!
Devika at UOW Red Bull Basement
While emerging technology is fun, exciting and great entertainment value, it also can provide solutions to problems that cannot be solved through other mediums. Take Evenness for example...It’s providing people with a disability with an easily accessible space to regulate anxiety through virtual reality.
Ken was invited to present at the event and shared his thoughts on how to use #techforgood...The secret is not to build technology but rather, a solution to a problem.
A Note from the Devika Team
