       Team Screen++, made up by Rong Yuyang, Cai Jianxiong, Su Junyan, Hu Zhen and Shen Fanti from SIST, ShanghaiTech, designed a solution for multi screens. They noticed that people are having more and more screens nowadays so they decided to provide a software that “connects” all of the screens by sharing mice, keyboard and screens over devices to make users life easier. As they conquered most technical problems over all the teams, they won 3rd prize.

       The team I’m here involves Xiong Zhaoping from SLST, ShanghaiTech, and managers from companies outside the campus. They proposed an indoor navigation system based on photos instead of GPS. Such solution can be used widely in malls and won the 3rd prize for their technologies.
