For my senior project, I am using a unique lever mechanism to create a tent stake that will allow ultralight backpackers to secure their tent on solid rock, snow, soil, and sand. Currently, I am researching the human factors involved as well as patent information related to tent pegs and stakes.
I am also working on a freelance project for Hiibeam LLC in Chicago; I can't say more, but it's pretty awesome.
In addition, I am building a sliding gear based storage system for luxury apartments, and a sanitary redesign of the standard diaper changing stations for public restrooms.
What else? I am going to take a trip soon to the worlds largest cave in Vietnam, where I will spend a week caving deep in one of the largest underground ecosystems on earth.
Plus I am planning a trip for this summer, a last hurrah, where two friends and I will drive from London to Mongolia. Over 17,000 miles and 16 countries, just on our own.
Wish me luck!
