For every problem, there is a solution. The main problem is that we don’t even try to get a solution. For the past 10 years, engineering has become the first career option for many. And so it degraded the name of engineering that it increased unemployment to the core due to lack of domain knowledge.
Everyone started making fun of engineers. But wait, there are brilliant minds too who found unique solutions to widespread problems.
Here are the brilliant and outstanding inventions by engineers.
1. Engineers Developed Gun Arm For Their Friend Who Lost His Arm
Yes, you read it right! Nerf blaster is modified into a playtime prosthetic by a group of Hackerloop Collective engineers for their friend who lost his arm. The prosthetic works like an actual gun arm that it fires up whenever the person contracts his forearm muscles.
2. Engineering Students Created Building Blocks From Concrete Debris
In the Carbon Zero Challenge competition organized by IIT Madras, a team from Kongu Engineering College, Erode, in Tamil Nadu recently won an award for creating building blocks from concrete debris. Yes, the debris can be recycled into construction material like hollow or paver blocks which are stronger and more durable than conventional bricks and concrete blocks.
3. Engineer Solved Water Crisis Problem In Ladakh
Farmers in Leh were facing a severe water crisis. But not anymore, Chewang Norphel who worked as a civil engineer with the Jammu and Kashmir Rural Development Department designed the first artificial glacier in Leh. His invention further led to the creation of 17 artificial glaciers across Ladakh as it solved the farmer’s problem. He is given a title, “The Ice Man of India”.
4. Engineering Students Build Bluetooth-Enabled Route Guiding Helmet
Karnataka engineering students have created a ‘Bluetooth-enabled route guiding helmet’. The unique features of this helmet include an inbuilt Bluetooth speaker, the battery life of six hours, charging port, and a cooling sheet in the front which is better for night vision.
5. An ITI Student Created Miniature Models Of Darjeeling Toy Train
A 24-year-old ITI student, Anurag Lakandry, created miniature models of the famous Darjeeling Toy Train to popularize toy trains around the world. Anurag is now getting orders from Singapore, London, Russia and several other places.
