Searching Sponsors for the Interactive Device unit at the University of Bristol
What is it: The 12 weeks unit give the opportunity to 3rd and 4th year students to be actively involved in a design process for building interactive devices. They learn about brainstorming, software and hardware prototyping, user studying. At the end they produce an demo-able interactive device which is highly innovative. E.g. last year 3 of the project were published as Late Breaking Work in the main conference in HCI, CHI (see below).
What I need from you: I need people and company interested in innovative technology that would be willing to sponsor us, concretely it means financially helping students to travel to the conference and present/demo their work.
What you get from us: A bunch of very talented students putting their brilliant brains together on innovative technology. A series of working demos that are presented at the Open Days at the University of Bristol. We could also think about making the student demoing somewhere else (e.g. your institution). We could also provide you a booth during University events to advertise your company to graduating students. The possibility are endless, just tell us what you want!
