Starting last Tuesday, the Lan Yang Institute of Technology held a two-day fair about innovative design. Their graduating class had 26 pieces on display, including intriguing robots and practical mechanical designs. The works were diverse, interesting, and amply showed the students’ creativity and expertise.

The Lan Yang Institute of Technology’s Department of Creative Product and Technological Application was the host of the fair. There was a robot specifically used for greeting visitors, as well as a group of dancing robots, a spider robot that could walk through mazes, an adorable robot dog, a police robot, a transformer robot, and a self-playing vibraphone and flute.

Du Hui-wen, head of the institute’s Department of Creative Product and Technological Application, said setting up classes for producing specific items allows students to combine knowledge, understand and grasp connections, and learn how to create actual products integrating and applying what they have learned. Apart from showcasing the students’ creativity, the fair also highlighted how many potential business opportunities the students’ works have.

蘭陽技術學院上週二起連兩天舉辦「創意設計專題製作成果展」,展出二十六件由畢業班學生製作的趣味機器人、實用機械設計等作品,作品相當多元、有趣,充分展現學生們的創意及專業能力。

這場專題製作成果展是由蘭陽技術學院創意產品科技應用系主辦,會場內有會向訪客來賓問候致意的「迎賓機器人」、機器人舞群、會走迷宮的機器蜘蛛,以及可愛的機器狗、機器戰警、變形金剛等機械獸,另外還有會自動演奏的鐵琴、直笛等。

創意產品科技運用系主任杜慧雯說,安排專題製作課程,是讓學生把學到的知識連結起來,瞭解、領悟彼此之間的關連性,以及要如何整合運用成為一件實質的產品,而學生展現的創意不僅讓人驚喜,更潛藏著許多商機。
