From “6 Degrees of Bacon” to Indoor SUNN

With just over two weeks to go until BOOM 2013, the projects currently stated to be presented at the annual high tech event promise to be as exciting and diverse as ever. Among the projects include well-known and long-standing student teams from CUAir and CUAUV, representing their advances in autonomous air and underwater vehicle research. Other projects include mobile gaming apps, such as “6 Degrees of Bacon,” a clever play on the popular meme about the ubiquitous actor, “6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon,” which finds the shortest path on Wikipedia from any page to the page about bacon, the ubiquitous meat; and SUNN, an internet connected lightbulb that mimics outdoor light patterns in any part of the world, indoors. To learn about all of the BOOM 2013 projects, visit the List of Projects page.
