How Do You Make a Pillow Out of Popsicle Sticks?- Jordan Reed

Greetings, Jordan from Vertabend here. I know, that title sounds like the intro to a bad joke, but it's really what we had to deal with this week. As you may know, we have been working on our prototype since Tuesday. We ordered our materials a while back, and were hoping to make a full... Continue Reading →

Quail save us~ Zane T.

May the gods of quail and parentheses aid us! Our mission is almost complete, and presentation day is soon arriving. I don’t think we will ever be ready enough. We’re pretty much done with our power point, besides some touching up and rehearsing, but I just don’t feel up to it. We had a practice... Continue Reading →

Just Keep Waiting…- Zane T.

Hey there. So repetition of events: we ordered our beginning foam and fabric, the engineering peeps made 3-d models (read in fancy slurred Animation Show voice), and us bio med peeps have continued to research....and we are all waiting for our materials to arrive from the distant abyss. But on the research side (which never... Continue Reading →

Time To Get Prototyping! (Newton)

So for the past long time we have struggled to complete our assigned design proposal, doing research and sorting through our accumulation of sources, and trying to phrase it sensibly and forgetting which sources we had already cited...and it has finally been finished...

Polyuwhat? (Karrie N)

Flexible Polyurethane Foam (FPF) is EVERYWHERE--inside cushions, mattresses, furniture, under our carpets, in packaging; you get the picture. The U.S. alone produces nearly 2 billion tons of polyurethane foam each year, according to the Polyurethane Foam Association publication InTouch. FPF is incredibly versatile and can be produced to have a mind-boggling variety of different properties.... Continue Reading →

I tried- Zane Trevino

 Hi, it’s Zane, the last member of Vertabend, here to provide an update. We have finished work on our memorandum, of which I had the market and value section, after a peer review session on Wednesday. The memorandum came along quite well, it had all the sections, though mine was a bit lacking, and seemed... Continue Reading →
