3D design students (2nd year) on the BDes Design and Communication course sweep 1st and 2nd place for the second year running in the Faculty Innovation Generation Competition. Phil Murphy’s invention entitled ‘Designing Well-Being: Eazi Grip – Arthritis grip & support’ secured a well deserved 1st place, while Daire Irwin (2nd) impressed the panel with his ‘innovative light switches’. Will these guys go on to compete and perhaps win the £25K awards? Watch this space. Well done to all the students who entered the competition- feedback has been very positive.
I will be giving a seminar in Letterkenny IT on wed 31 Jan, 1.30, room 1404
This seminar will be an exploration of mobile phone technology and the convergence between the mobile internet and the PC internet. There will be a focus on the architecture of web based mobile phone applications and the technical constraints, challenges and opportunities in that area. There will also be a bit of speculation.
At last I have got around to adding a visitor counter on the FoyleArts.net site. See who is visiting us.
