Earlier this month, I was presented with the opportunity, from the Infosys Foundation, to present my patented, award-winning invention, Wirecog, at MIT during the first-ever International Symposium on Academic Makerspaces. Last month, the Infosys Foundation, invited me to participate on the Makers of Change panel for the World Maker Faire at the New York Hall of Science. I believe the impact of my participation on the panel, was the stepping stone for Wirecog's debut at MIT on November 14, 2016.

It was indeed, a great honor to be given this opportunity to present the Wirecog vision at MIT, one of the most prestigious institutions of innovation and technology. This was the opportunity of a lifetime, and when the time came to prepare for the event, I was determined to do my best.

It was a truly exhilarating experience, to present Wirecog and to share my background as an Inventor, Maker, and Entrepreneur, with the audience at MIT's Tang Convention Center. I was thankful for the admiration and praise that was expressed by many individuals after seeing the Wirecog demo. I also received a lot of positive feedback, which will be incorporated into the project in due course. Overall, I had a great time engaging in deep technical dialogue with several professors and students. I am immensely pleased with the successful, public debut of Wirecog at MIT!
