Ceiling fan cleaners, cloth drying machines and an alarm to correct body posture — Delhiites will be able to see all these innovations, along with many others, at I2Tech 2011 at Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi (IIT-D) on Saturday.
Research work and students’ projects will be on display at the event, which is open to all.
“The event attracts many school students, with more than 3,000 students coming to see the innovations last year. The projects on display are from varied fields,” said Surendra Prasad, director, IIT - D.
Around 400 projects by 1,000 IIT D students — many of which may make life easier — will be on display in the seventh edition of the event. Some of which are:
Ceiling Fan Cleaner: This device will clean fan blades from both sides. It can be used while standing on the floor and the length of the stick of the fan cleaner can be adjusted according to the user’s height.
Bagbrella (Umbrella and a bag): A product designed to protect people from unpredictable rain; it is expected to be very handy and comfortable. The user will not have to hold the umbrella in their hand as the bag (a knapsack) will have an inbuilt umbrella providing a hands-free experience.
Cloth-Drying Machine Students have designed a machine which will do away with the need to spread clothes in the sun. The machine aims to move air between clothes to dry clothes.
