Each year the Co-Lab funds a variety of technology projects and explorations through our grant program. Here's a list of what students are working on.
Current Co-Lab Projects
Duke Combat Robotics Team
Student-run team with a love for building battlebots
3D Printing in Brachytherapy: Modular Phantoms as Teaching Tools
3D printing modular phantoms of patient anatomy for training purposes.
JoJob aims to facilitate the bookkeeping and logistics management process for groups of people sharing storage units. It serves as a central repository to search for storage unit and rental truck listings, and manage logistics and costs.
Project Breathe: A connected incentive spirometer and smartphone app
Patient-centered mobile application and hardware that optimizes care
The Delta Band is a strength training wearable tailored to athletes and trainers.
EV360: An Electric Monowheel
We are a team of engineers who like thinking outside the box, breaking boundaries, and designing innovations that challenge the standard. We want to challenge our audience’s view of a student motorsports team, using cutting edge battery technology to not only build a science-fiction style motor vehicle, an electric monowheel. While our long-term goal is to set a land-speed for fastest single-wheeled vehicle, we are starting off with the co-lab on building a low-speed electric monowheel.
