Stanislav Palatnik, computer science senior, NYU-Poly, Kew Gardens, N.Y. – Palatnik turns the usual social media equation on its head: His software eschews old friends for new, and the keyboard for in-person activities. His network will let users find a neighbor who wants to go to the movies or ride a motorcycle. Virtual acquaintances can interview each other, as well.
Jonathan Samudio, computer engineering freshman, NYU-Poly, from Congers, N.Y. – Samudio is designing a "smart" jacket called IronSuit, which can use the wearers body heat to generate electricity to charge electrical devices. The jacket can also heat or cool the user while not charging a device.
Yangzi Isabel Tian, chemical and Biological engineering junior, NYU-Poly, from San Gabriel, Calif. – In search of a non-invasive cancer therapy, Tian looks to deliver a tumor-suppressing gene by deploying synthetic nano-engineered carriers. Through this combinatorial therapy, Tian expects safer and more effective treatment with fewer side effects.
Luc Succes, computer science senior, NYU-Poly, from Paris and now living in Uniondale, N.Y.; and Shirley Wynn, computer science senior, NYU-Poly, from Brooklyn, N.Y. – Searching for a new radio format that encourages interactivity and provides stations with systematic insight on listeners' opinions and interests, Succes and Wynn developed their first prototype during a senior design project using NYU-Poly's radio station. Their cloud-based service called Neocast.fm provides radio stations with realtime feedback and analytics on listeners connected through web and mobile platforms. Listeners can pick what they want to hear and communicate with other listeners. The students are currently testing their latest prototype with two college stations.
