Visit the site

and read about the challenges set for contestents in Robotics, Computer Science events including one on applications for a three-degrees-of-feedom mouse named Mushaca see

and a "Kode Kombat". There is also an Electronics challenge involving the extraction of information from a video stream.

The ideas are thought provoking; and, who knows, you might decide to take up one of these challenges just for the fun of it.
