I need YOUR ideas!! Please!
I wasn't sure where I should post this, but this seemed an ok place......
So I've recently been informed that this summer, as part of my research project, I need to do one of three things--
1) Design, build, and engineer a new robot that has never been created before that would somehow be helpful to the world (either on a small or large scale--it really doesn't matter though)
2) Take a robot that is (somewhat) widely used and build onto it to make it better
3) Take a current (somewhat) well known robot and apply it to something it has never been used for before
I need your ideas and suggestions for robots you think should be built!! All suggestions are greatly appreciated!! To get into the details of why I'm doing this, I'll explain below--
This will be for my Authentic Science Research project (for the Intel Talent Search) which I will need to write an paper on and submit next fall. My mentor told me two days ago that she wants me to come up with a research idea that I'd be able to complete. But I need your help! I'm a little low on brain juice, so I need inspiration and ideas from you all!! Every idea is helpful!!!
If this plan actually works out and I do one of the above 3 things from now until the fall, I will happily put your name in my acknowledgments section of my research paper, and (if I build a new robot) I will some how get your name printed somewhere visible on the bot. I know the reward is not that intriguing, but its something!
Thank you all so much and I hope to hear from you soon!!!
