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.
