Biped Bot
The main objective of this project was to build a biped prototype which would lead us to understand the mechanics and the general problems to be encountered when building a human sized robot.

Braille Reader
Braille tutor will consist of construction of a single cell which will help the blind reader to make him learn the Braille language by inputting the loop from A to Z

Bus Monitoring System
The user will be able to monitor live traffic and get a fair idea of how long will it take to reach his destination (a bus stop), when traveling via a BEST bus.

Pocket Piano
Ever dreamt of playing a piano on a bench because you are so damn bored in the lecture?
With size of merely a small block, this device allows you to do just that!

POV Clock
Persistence of vision is a phenomenon of the eye by which an afterimage is thought to persist for approximately one twenty-fifth of a second on the retina. Using this concept we have constructed a display using a LED panel.

Self Balancing Robot
A practical implementation of the 'Inverted Pendulum' problem in control theory using inertial sensor feedback and PID control algorithm.
