Winning Imagine Cup Malaysia 2005 competition

A team comprising four software engineering undergraduates from Multimedia University (MMU) emerged champions in the Imagine Cup Malaysia 2005 competition.

The competition is a technology contest that provides an outlet for students to explore their technological and artistic interests outside the classroom, according to organisers Microsoft Corp.

The students won, thanks to their RFID (radio frequency identification) and handheld device-based Object iDentification Information Network (Odin) application.

They will go on to the final round of the competition, to be held in Yokohama, Japan, from 27 July to 2 Aug.

The four students – Chuah Shang Jun, Ooi Wen Fong, Saw Kee Leng and Tan Boon Siang – said they were driven to develop Odin by the idea that “posters, plates, vending machines and much of everything else” would come with RFID tags in the future.
