My visit to IIT madras

I visited IIT madras during their Open House 2008 and saw a whole new world. I got to touch an army tank, photograph the Renault F1, heard about wind energy generation, rocket launching, saw how tidal waves are simulated and how a power steering works. I got to travel in the GPS enabled IIT bus and was also lucky to see a black buck. The students of the CS department fascinated me and my brother with their Robots. They taught us how to make Robots from broken toys and cars. I bought a T-shirt, designed by the CS students, as a memento.The T-shirt read "The end is near January 19, 2008 03:14:07 GMT". Well it was not about the world coming to an end, like I thought initially, but the end of all computers based on 32 'bit' architecture.
