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
Build a virtual platform that connects Duke students with NGOs and social enterprises in Southeast Asia
Multi-material 3D printed orthotics for pediatric GSD patients
Children with glycogen-storage disorders need orthotics quickly to help them live happy and healthy lives. We're here to help make that possible in just one trip to Durham.
Two Duke students who are building a high altitude balloon that will capture photos of the curvature of the earth and the black of space.
An array of sensors to detect analog signals from the world to learn about the way a space works.
3D Printing in Brachytherapy: Modular Phantoms as Teaching Tools
3D printing modular phantoms of patient anatomy for training purposes.
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.
