Thank you for your interest in my work and in our research, and research labs, as well as our startups.
Together we have created companies valued at more than $1 billion, and our InventrepreneurshipTM 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 some of my Instructables (Professor Steve Mann), at
Most of the people who have been successful at MannLab have grown up in a workshop environment and been exposed to machine shop tools since childhood. However if you do not have a home workshop, try your best to do some of the Prof. Mann instructables that don't require special tools that you don't have. Many of the Prof. Mann Instructables are pure programming, or can be done with home kitchen-table equipment and readily available supplies.
Once you do some of the Prof Mann Instructables, we will review your results and get back to you regarding where you might best fit within our lab, with a recommendation of who your mentors (seniour students) should be.
