Sponsoring meeting in the Counter Entropy House
Our team invited all supporters to see the house at a festive reception in Madrid. With regional delicacies the guests could get a picture of it. They could see how the students have worked with their products and how they used them in the “Counter Entropy House”. With nice music in the background the supports could - for example - test with the gesture control system to open our windows or to turn on/ off the lights.
