Today Monday 7th October 2013 we held the first RGU CompSoc meeting of the 2013/14 Academic Year. We spent a good bit of time flying a DJI Phantom Quadcopter about the grounds at the eastern end of the Riverside East Building. We also did a bit of flying around inside the Atrium area of Riverside East as can be seen in the videos below. We initially met up at the dining area on level 2 just in front of Costa Coffee chatted for a while and made the usual introductions, especially as their was quite a few new faces from first year computing present. In all we had about 20 people in attendance, which was a great start to the new year.
Following on from the videos here are some photos both inside and out-with the Riverside East Building. You will see quite a few photos, of a project developed by 4 of our 3rd year Computer Science students who are presently on Work Placement at various companies in and around Aberdeen. As you can see from the pictures they have build a system using the PumpSpark system and Arduino. This will be submitted as an entry to the UIST 2013 Student Innovation Contest taking place on Thursday 10th October. We will post some videos of it in action and tell you more about it after the competition. As for now just enjoy the photos, and hope to see more of you again next Monday at the same time and place: 17:30 level 2, dining area, by Costa Coffee.
