It is a blustery and bleak day outside Clark Hall at Johns Hopkins University, but inside, students are working on something big and bright on the horizon. Under the fluorescents of one classroom ceiling students are 3-D printing, programming, soldering things together; it is a symphony of movement in the orchestra of prostheses, artificial limbs for amputees. The soldering iron hums, the solder sizzles and the printer buzzes all in perfect harmony. This complex rhythm is the coming together of research into a sensor database that will lead to new, unprecedented technology in prosthetic devices. In this lab, the students hope to meld technological data with brain signals in prosthetic machinery, like no one has ever done before.

In this high-tech age of internet and text-based communication, three-letter acronyms are all the rage. As bizarre as they are popular, examples include “bae,” “AMA” and, at Johns Hopkins University, EML.

EML, short for Electronic Music Lab, is a new campus group that provides student disc jockeys with the opportunity to come together and progress their craft through discussion and hands-on instruction.

What do computer hacking, Bollywood and cricket have in common? They’re all passions of Rutgers University programming student Varun Shah. On an average night, the 21-year-old can be found writing Bollywood film reviews for his website or designing a new app while watching cricket matches half a world away.
