John Rattray member profile

John Rattray is a PhD Candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Using 3D modeling and 3D printers, John is creating a prototype for a low cost alternative to automated and remote controlled window blinds. Using an application that he has designed for smart phones, the window blinds can be adjusted based on application settings including setting the blinds to open at a certain time. He hopes that this low cost alternative can be used to assist individuals with disabilities.
