Bose Challenge: Carnegie Mellon University

October 18th, 2018

On October 18th over 100 Carnegie Mellon University students came together for a kickoff event in partnership with Real Industry and Bose. Students worked on interdisciplinary teams to gain real-world experience designing for AR, exploring how companies actually develop products, and developing their professional networks.

After learning more about the challenge at the kick-off event, students broke into teams to start on their task. All student teams attending the 3 hour kickoff event received Bose hardware. Over the following 2 weeks, students used Bose hardware to explore a problem or opportunity, build something, and communicate the engineering and business values behind their accomplishments.

Our mission is educate, empower and inspire university students to succeed in industry. Our partnership with Bose and CMU allows us to provide hundreds of students with the hands-on experience, mentorship, and guidance they need to thrive!

Bose wants to empower students to learn about audio augmented reality and design meaningful experiences around it. Bose AR is a new audio augmented reality technology and platform that makes it possible to superimpose sound on top of the real world. With AR, novel experiences for music, communicating, learning, traveling, and more are possible.

Thank you to all of our student participants from Carnegie Mellon and to our partners at Bose!
