During the ImagineCup Worldwide Finals in New York City, we – the Microsoft Student Partners Social Media Team, got to meet some exceptional people. One of those was Soma Somasegar – Senior Vice-President, Developer Division @ Microsoft.
This year I got the chance to attend the ImagineCup Worldwide Finals in New York City, where students from all over the world were presenting solutions to solve the world’s toughest problems through use of modern technology. One of the teams that particularly stood up from the crowd was Note-Taker – a group of guys from Arizona State University who built a device that helps legally blind people during their classes.
Today I got the chance to attend a couple of team project presentations and one of those was a project called MIRA – Medical Interactive Recovery Assistant, developed by team SIMPLEX from Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The purpose of the project is to facilitate a more effective recovery for people with physical injuries. I already wrote about their idea a while ago, but today I got to see the real project and it’s actions.
It was recently announced on the official ImagineCup blog that all finalists for the worldwide ImagineCup finals were selected. You can read that story here. Since I am currently located in the United States, I would like to bring to your attention the teams that will be representing America this year.
