Thank you for your interest in my work and in our
and research labs,
as well as our startups.
we have created companies valued at more than $1 billion,
approach has been highly successful.
The best way to get a sense of what our lab is like, as well as give us a
sense of what you are like (i.e. so we can get to know each other)
is to do one of my Instructables (Professor Steve Mann), at
Once you do that, my research team and I will review your
results and get back to you regarding where you might best fit within our
lab, with my recommendation of who your mentors (seniour students) should be.
- click "I made it!", and
- upload some pictures and videos or links to videos.
- (Optionally) Contact me to bring your work to my attention
(this third step is not totally necessary because I check my Instructables
regularly, and if you do one of my Instructables
well, or artfully, or creatively, I'm very likely to notice it).
See for example:
The first Instructable above is something that arose from my natural childhood
curiosity, which I made out of junk (garbage).
With the right skill, aptitude, and fortitude,
you can create something similar,
without any special equipment and without any lab space. I designed
my Instructables to be simple for people of all ages, including children and
students from primary school-age to university-age, to build at home. It's
also fun, and deeply profound in many ways. And by doing it, you'll experience
the general culture and philosophy of my research and lab, and get a sense of
how you might fit in here.
