Klamath Falls, Ore. -- Students from Oregon Tech offered a glimpse into the future of a project symposium Monday afternoon.

Project displays included a racing car that will compete against other schools from around the nation next month, versions of drones, or 'unmanned aerial vehicles,' and even some new twists on old-style tube guitar amplifiers.

"We just kind of open up the floor and let any student that wants to bring in a project that they've been working on for the past year, to come on in and show it off," said Professor Jim Long.

Other projects included a glove-style computer controller and the 'Lumber Rumbler,' and a wood-powered truck.
