Interactive Robots at MetroTech Plaza

This afternoon at MetroTech Plaza, faculty, students, and firms from NYU-Poly and its business incubators will demonstrate their research in 40 interactive, family-friendly exhibits. Visitors can check out various kinds of robots, apps, fiber-optic sensors, energy-harvesting building materials, wireless monitors for epileptic seizures, what’s in the Gowanus Canal and augmented reality. The engineering school is based at MetroTech, and its first annual Research Expo is free and will be open from 1 to 5 pm today.
