The most interesting thing to me by far in this class were the robots we worked with. I thoroughly enjoyed discovering just what goes into even the simplest robots. It was really interesting learning what it takes to build and program a robot. I also thought it was really interesting to see all the advancements in robotics that are being used today. Technology advances at such a rapid pace I cant imagine what is to come in the future.
I would have liked to get more into virtual reality mostly because I enjoy video games but I think it is such a broad field. There is so much potential for the future of virtual reality and how it can help people and businesses learn and thrive more. Mr. Walters showed some of these potentials that he is currently working on for hospital training on MRI machines. This to me was perhaps the best example of how doing tasks in the virtual world can allow us to see the mistakes before we make them and I feel can really create a better training environment. People mostly learn by hands on and this is a way to facilitate that without risk to a human being.
As far as my career goes this class has allowed me to see all the different paths I can take if I desire but has certainly solidified my path in technology and computing. I know this is what I want to do with my life it is something I have always been interested in ever since I first used a computer as a child. I enjoy opening a computer and seeing just how all the components work and come together and how I can build something with my own hands that can do so much. I really am also interested in networking which is my primary focus with my major. I want to learn more about networking and learn to troubleshoot and fix them as well as better understand how the internet works and how to improve networks.
This class has been challenging at times with subject matter like programming, not my forte`. However it has always remained engaging and fun. This due to the fact that everyone in this class seems to really know what they are doing and for others who may not they all seem to want to learn more. I have learned a lot and am excited to learn more throughout the rest of my college career.
