OURCI Posters at the Capitol presenter receives recognition:

MANHATTAN — If the appearance and buzzing and clicking of cicadas are enough to bug you, a Kansas State University student hopes her interactive display will make the insect seem friendlier.

The display, created by Patricia Melton, senior in digital experimental media, Manhattan, is a plush 7-inch stuffed cicada with giant eyes like a child's stuffed toy but is touch-sensitive and plugs into a computer. The display uses visual and microcontroller coding platforms to play video on a computer monitor or a projector screen. Read the full story here: http://bit.ly/2pe3dxY
