      Sure 🙂 Im sure what we do will change the world. It might be not the most drastic change but still it is an improvement for many people.

      Wow. That is some goal. At the moment no. I am just helping people find parking spaces ;). What do engineers should make to change the world ?

      If I told you I’d have to kill you ha ha joking! I’m hoping to inspire add many students to study engineering as I can so you guys n gals can rock the world instead with all your inventions

      I am working in modelling on something that could enhance the 3D surgery (some sort of video games of surgery). I hope that my work will make 3D surgery faster and closer to what is really going on in the body (above all in the heart and in the brain)

      Yea I guess so. But tbh my focus is mostly on solving the problem, and not so much what the effect that solving the problem will have. I think the problems I work on, mainly trying to figure out how to make intelligent robots that can do useful things for people, are so hard and take up so much energy that I don’t really think about exactly how the technology will be used once its finished. To me that seems like a problem for a later day! Haha. That said, if I can make it work I know it will really help a large number of people.
