Discovery Lab members (from left to right) Francisco Peleato, Mangai Prabakar, Lazaro Herrera, Fernando de Zayas, Paola Buitron, Irvin Cardenas, Eduardo Dennis, Leo Shao, and Daniela Chavez Guevara prepared live demos and tours of the lab. Professor Jong-Hoon Kim, Director of the Discovery Lab (pictured right), explains the current projects to guests at the FIU SCIS 25th Anniversary open lab.

The Discovery Lab Director, Dr. Jong-Hoon Kim, presented the lab's accomplishments and vision for the future. Discovery lab members demonstrated the following:

  • Air Aquarium - a fully autonomous robot fish that can move on its own or via remote control
  • G.I. Bioloid - a Bioloid remotely controlled via infra-red or a PC serial connection
  • SpiderBot - a mobile Bioloid robot modeled on the same principle that moves spider legs
  • TeleBot - a telepresence robot, which incorporates video, audio, and sensory capabilities, to allow disabled military veterans and police officers to get back to the workforce
  • ISHA - Intelligent System for Home Automation
  • 3D printers - printing of custom designed 3D models

Guests were impressed and found the demonstrations informative and engaging. "The event was very well organized, thanks to your effort. I was very impressed by the changes FIU and SCIS have done since I graduated. I was extremely impressed by the Discovery Lab. I wish we had a lab like that in our department," said Professor Wenliang Du from Syracuse University.
