The models prepared by the students of electronics department attracted the attention of the visitors. The most interesting item of the exhibition was the mini robotic car, which runs with the help of optical sensors. Explaining the model one of the students says that the reflecting surface i.e. the white light plays an important role in the movement of the car. "The car takes the direction in which the white light travels" says the student. Then there was a robotic arm made by Naveen Shankar Pal which is completely controlled by the microprocessor and obeys the commands given to it. The small robotic arm perfectly lifts and places any kind of object.

Robotic car-Moves with 'light'ning speedApart from testing their scientific temper, the festival also brought into light the marketing skills of the students. The enthusiastic students of the Muffakham Jah College moved out of the classrooms and marketed extensively for the event. "We formed ourselves into different teams with each team concentrating on a particular job. We met different corporate houses of the city asking them to sponsor the event," said Shashaank. The efforts of the students did not go waste as they could garner 2 lakh rupees in the form of sponsorships.

Tachyon 2K1 gave an opportunity for the students to display their scientific skills which often goes unrecognised due to lack of a proper forum. Events of this nature also helps students to develop their communication and marketing skills which are playing a vital role in the development of the society.
