A McMaster University team; four second year engineering students (one in each Electrical, Mechanical, Computer and Mechatronics engineering) showcased their robotic arm with the purpose of to “replace the need for a human to individually allocate CDs into their drives for burning.” source: http://www.behance.net/gallery/Design-of-a-Robotic-Arm/7619261 – You can read all about the process and design here.

The conference showed how important Canadian innovation is to our world. It was inspiring, and showed that innovation is not only important to our economy, but also strengthens Canadian reputation as a world leader in innovation.
