Default Cliffahnger : Machine Designing Competition

Dear Students,

This is with regard to TECHFEST, the annual technological festival of the
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, India, one of the world's
premier engineering institutes.

From its inception in 1998 to being the largest of its kind in entire Asia
in 2003, Techfest has come a long way. In its seventh avatar, Techfest
2004 extends its horizons to reach out to students not only from India but
also across the world. The fest is scheduled for 24-26 Jan, 2004.

CLIFFHANGER, the International Rope-climbing Machine Design Contest, aims
at providing novel solutions to the problems faced by the rescue workers
who often have the daunting task of climbing tall buildings at the cost of
endangering their own lives. In this competition, you have to design a
machine that climbs a rope of given dimensions and burst the balloons kept
on the top of a structure.

There shall be a qualifying round where in you are required to submit a
video of your machine. AIRFARE will be provided to a few select entries
from outside India in the qualifying round. Prizes worth a whopping US
$2500 are there to be won including -

1st Prize : US $ 1000
2nd Prize : US $ 750
3rd Prize : US $ 500

The complete rules, details and deadlines of the competition are available
at the URL: [Only registered users see links. ]

Apart from this machine design contest, TECHFEST spans a wide spectrum of
events which promise to enthrall you and stimulate your creativity and

Competitions including Yantriki, India's largest robotics competition,
Last Straw, the structure building competition, Chemsplash, the chemical
engineering extravaganza, Contraption, Krazie Idea, Open Hardware, Open
Workshops- where the driving force is to "do while you learn".

Lecture Series- get an opportunity to meet your role models and find out
what motivates and inspires them.

Technoholix- 3D Laser Shows, Aibo Robo Cup, Trebuchets et al

Students are encouraged to participate in any of the competitions,
workshops or simply visit TECHFEST, to see for themselves the latest and
the best in technology. Please check out the website [Only registered users see links. ] for
more information.

All the above mentioned competitions are also open for international
participation. However, there is no provision for providing airfare to
participants of these competitions. We are always ready for any other help
that we may provide.

Please feel free to clarify any queries that you may have.

Warm regards,
