Boom is an event, an outlet, for really amazing technical projects.
CUAUV is one of the great projects we have. It's a big group project. And they've been winning competitions across the nation.
We have all the technical documentations from previous years, so the new students can look at that technical documentation and learn from past mistakes. And we try a lot of new things that are pretty different. So the combination of experience and also trying new things and adding to them. Full of experience is what helps us become better every year.
If you look at the general design of the hull itself, it's really slim and sleek so that it can go through the water much better.
They start and pull in undergraduate students for their one big project. And continuously learning, continuously building on being better the next year. Every year they come back, we just see amazing things happen.
Boom is interesting because we have some of the top engineering, computer science, and informational science students. And this is just a great way to showcase what they're researching.
They were just plain old batteries out in the open. But this here, in order to make it easier, we have batteries--
Automated brewing exists. But the whole, it's incredibly expensive.
Ohmbrewer has a really fantastic idea-- this automated wireless brewing.
Our system is designed with homebrewers and small craft breweries in mind.
You will tell the computer, OK, mash these ingredients for this amount of time, and then pump that over into a different vessel, and then boil the ingredients for a certain amount of time.
We're also trying to develop a peristaltic pump, which is significantly cheaper than anything commercially available, which will greatly help the affordable aspect of this product.
Like to take as many tedious things out of the brew day as possible. So you can sit back, enjoy your beer, drink, produce better beer, more consistently.
With Boom, it's just a really amazing event that, like I said before, top Cornell engineering, top school. And we just have really, really great projects.

From an automated beer-brewing system to an underwater autonomous vehicle, Cornell students unveiled their best work in cutting-edge digital technologies at BOOM 2015.
Now in its 17th year, BOOM is presented annually by Cornell Computing and Information Science, in collaboration with the College of Engineering.
