Back Exoskeleton to Assist Lifting
We have developed a light-weight, low-cost exoskeleton for the back that assists its wearer in lifting objects. The exoskeleton completely offloads the weight of the wearer's torso, enabling them to pick up objects to around 25-30% of their bodyweight without additional strain or enabling them to use minimal energy to bend forward and straighten ag...

Corlayer3d: Corrugated Layering for FDM 3D Printing
A new method for making stronger FDM 3d prints. Most Fuse Deposition Modeling FDM 3d printers like Makerbots are strong in 2 axes but not the third. Frequently the third axes upon which layers are built up are subject to shearing. Corrugating this layer resists shear and can make a 3d printed part stronger.

Finding Important People in Images
People preserve memories of events such as birthdays, weddings, or vacations by capturing photos, often depicting groups of people. Invariably, some individuals in the image are more important than others given the context of the event. This IP proposes understanding and quantifying this concept of importance in group photos, predicting this import...
