For All Project Tango App Contest Entrants That Continue To Inspire
As we approach the final days of the judging period for the Project Tango App Contest we’d like to recognize a single Project Tango community member that did not make it to the Finals round yet still continues to inspire others to greatness. Hunter Lloyd is a Teaching Professor of Computer Science at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. He reached out to us after submitting his Prototype Phase app and we got to learn more about him. In his words:

"Between undergrad and graduate school for 6 years I was a touring Stand-up Comic. On TV, opening for celebrities, I was relatively successful, but got burnt out so I went to grad school. Now, 20 years later, I have a touring Robot Comedy Show. I use 6 to 9 robots in my shows. The whole process of designing, building, programming and testing the new Project Tango Robot is going to be my theme for this year. I'll show off the process, show off the technology and mix in a lot of jokes."

Coming up for Hunter this year are the NASA Mining Competition, more NAO Humanoid Robots and a year-long senior design project for both ME and EE departments. Hunter, hope you’re reading this because we’d like to announce that we’ll be donating devices your way to help with the busy year you have planned.

For everyone reading this, if you haven’t downloaded and rated App Contest Final apps - your Play Store ratings may potentially bump up one of the compelling apps from Category Winner to the Best Overall App of the contest.

And look out for our next contest - we foresee some competition coming from Montana. No pressure Hunter.
