Scientific innovations by students showcased at Shanghai Jiao Tong silicone wristband braceletUniversityAre Music Festivals For Me? Billy Draws Two consists of Billy Horn 25 (Niagara Falls, N.Y.) , lead vocals, guitar, harmonica and songwriter, Doug Krell, 26, (Youngstown, N.Y.), rhythm guitar, backing vocals and bass, Rosie Lorentti, 20, (Lewiston, N.Y.), bass and backing vocals and piano and Chris McClellen, 23, (Buffalo, N.Y.), drums. Off Broadway is one of the few St. Louis music venues that attracts indie rock and punk bands that are up and coming, but that aren"t completely obscure. A perfect example is the brand new psychedelic folk group Here We Go Magic, which played a beautiful set at Off Broadway a couple weeks ago. The band had stopped in St. Louis on it"s way to the festival wristbands, where they played a ton of shows that got pretty impressive reviews. And the gun slingin", whiskey guzzlin" indie rockers Murder By Death are scheduled to play at Off Broadway in May - it"s bound to be a more appropriate atmosphere than if the group performed at the Pageant to the tune of $5 Budweisers.
Scientific works designed by students from the electronic information and electrical engineering institute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University went on display in the school’s campus in Minhang district on July 2.
“We hope the exhibition, which features a series of cutting-edge, high-tech products, encourages more young people to pursue scientific and technology research that benefits the community,” said Guan Xinping, head of the electronic information and electrical engineering institute at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
One of the highlights of the exhibition is a mechanical arm which can extract a specific object from a pile of items. The robot was designed by members of the autonomous robotics lab led by Chen Weidong, professor of the automation school at the electronic information and electrical engineering institute.
“The robotic arm can recognize the type and position of the object using a RGB-D camera. This allows it to determine the best route to retrieve it,” said Chen.
Wang Yiwen, a postgraduate in the team, said the mechanical arm could be used to help logistics workers sort and load cargo if it is launched in the market.
