Commercializing university research - Hopping robots, liquid shoes, electricity from heat

Abstract:
A not-so-whacky university-based center for entrepreneurism has funded some, well, somewhat unusual research projects that actually may have commercial potential. The William J. von Liebig Center for Entrepreneurism and Technology Advancement at the University of California, San Diego has awarded $430,000 to nine projects led by faculty members of the Jacobs School of Engineering, the School of Medicine, and the Moores Cancer Center.

The latest round of seed funding grants, the ninth since the von Liebig Center was set up in 2001, raises the center's grant total to more than $2.8 million in grants to fund 65 research projects with commercialization potential.
