California Institute of Technology, 1999 - $18,250

Bubble Imaging Technology (BIT) is a new, patent-pending technology used to create alphanumeric digits and/or graphics in a fluid medium. Based on the technology created by inventor Frederick Romberg, this E-Team designed prototypes and developed marketing opportunities for BIT. Two prototypes, a large commercial display board and a small desktop clock, were built.

The team included five members with skills in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, marketing, and finance. The team developed a business plan, prepared a market analysis, and completed the patenting process.
