Last fall I wrote a blog on a reality show I wanted to start
called Top Engineer
. When I poked around on the web, I was delighted to discover that a company called Pilgrim Studios already had a version in development. Were you disappointed the casting was closed? Would you like to test yourself in that kind of environment and show the world just how clever you are? Well, you’re in luck. Pilgrim just e-mailed that they’re casting a new engineering reality show—this time on the development of extreme prosthetics.
It’s a timely topic. Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have resulted in more than 1,500 amputees in the U.S. military alone. Pilgrim wants to develop an elite team of engineers and designers who will leverage advances in microprocessor technology, motion control and materials to develop the world’s most advanced prosthetics—and change the lives of the amputees who will wear them.
They’re seeking electrical engineers, mechanical engineers, roboticists and controls engineers for a project that sounds both rewarding and challenging, not to mention a paying position. Find out more here
