It all started from a Big Bang
The team consists of electrical and electronic engineering undergraduates, namely Peter Ling Ting Rang and Marcus Tan Lee Soon, under the supervision of Dr. Chua Hong Siang and A/Prof. Ng Sing Muk. All the members are from the largest island in Asia, a.k.a. the beautiful Borneo Island. It is blessed with abundance of flora and fauna. The love of nature is the fuel that propels the team to work on innovative approaches to save Mother Earth. Jimmy Carter once stated, “Like music and art, love of nature is a common language that can transcend political or social boundaries.” During a brainstorming session, a dragonfly entered the room through a narrow window. The members were intrigued, observing the dragonfly in perpetual awe as it hovered and spontaneously dipped its tail into the water in the goldfish bowl. It was a “Eureka!” moment as the team got their inspiration. A Big Bang! The team instantly realized that air quality and water quality could in fact be monitored with a dragonfly-like device, capable of “living” from the surface of water to high up in the sky. The team wants to unlock new insights, and hopes to make the idea alive to monitor and ameliorate environmental issues.
