Newbury Park, CA (January 4, 2012) – Looped LOGIC is delighted to announce that the winner of the Ig Nobel iPad Sweepstakes is Kevin Tolo. Kevin is the founder of Hospital Relief International, a 501(c)(3) organization committed to helping the growing need for medical care in the developing world. HRI collects surplus medical equipment, clinical lab equipment, and supplies from hospitals, corporations, and other institutions in the U.S., and ships them to facilities in need elsewhere in the world.
With his new 32 GB iPad2 with 3G, a camera connection kit, and a cover in fabulous Looped LOGIC orange, Kevin can run his organization even more efficiently. Or he can relax with an invigorating game of "Angry Birds". We won't tell.
Cambridge Scientific won the Ig Nobel event tickets, where a good time was had by all — and we have the video to prove it.
We LOVE your enthusiastic and creative descriptions of your work, and the fabulous photos of your labs and lab-related subjects. We are equally fond of all of them, from the the laboratory glamor shots, to the costumed kitty, to the cheerful grad student holding a very large bucket of bugs. We'll be adding them to the Looped LOGIC website shortly, so watch this space.
Thanks to Annals of Improbable Research editor Marc Abrahams, Ig Nobel Facilitator Katherine Meusey, Stage Manager Extraordinaire David Kessler, and the rest of the Ig Nobel crew, for making us newcomers feel welcome, and for making our lab furniture look fabulous on stage.
We had a blast.
