Qeexo shows their FingerSense which elevates the user experience of touch-enabled devices by understanding how a user is touching the screen, making them more intelligent, more powerful, and easier to use. Powered by Qeexo’s lightweight, high-speed machine learning technology, FingerSense is the world’s only software solution to provide touch-enabled devices the intelligence to know what is touching the screen. FingerSense allows devices to distinguish between a fingerpad, knuckle, nail, or passive stylus tip and eraser, revolutionizing the way we interact with touch surfaces. Filmed at the SID Display Week.
NTL shows their narrow viewing angle display which controls the light beam not using the narrow film but controlling the viewing angle by an electrical switch within the smartphone. So when you want to do something privately you can switch on the narrow viewing angle mode on your smartphone. NTL is a spin-off from NEC now part of Chinese Tianma which I have also filmed here. Filmed at the izone at SID Display Week.
HoIst Center for Innovation is working on a model of shared knowledge and R&D for various industrial partners, where they work on cutting edge technology like flexible OLED displays, In-mold electronics like capacitive touch sensors, OLED lighting, NFC and switch and gates. They are also showing the stretchable printed electronics PCB which can be use in the textile and sports industry. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
ilika Technology is a UK based company who is mainly working in Material science and innovation in various electronics products.They have collaboration with Rolls Royce and Toyota for research and development.here they are showcasing their Solid state sub milliamp hour battery for the constant temperature measurement and broadcasting via Bluetooth beacon. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
AGFA Group provides the technology solution to Health care and Printing industry. Here they are showcasing the Nano silver conductive Ink for printed electronics. They use this silver metal mesh for making the transparent conductive plastic surface. On the other side of the booth is the inkjet printable Solder mask for high accuracy and low pollution PCB manufacturing and digitally printed nano silver Ink on paper with the same conductivity as plastic.

Icohup is showcasing Rium which is a consumer device for measuring the pollution level and the radio activity at the home, it's a radioactivity sensor, a powerful gamma spectrometer, it can also detect the nature of the different type of radioactive rays. The device can be connected to the mobile app via Bluetooth and keep them updated about the environment, that informs users about the level of risk and proposes protection means adapted to each situation, as the Rium instrument is geolocated and connected to the Internet, the data received allow us to build radioactivity maps in real time. Icohup also develops tailored sensors in different fields such as fluids leaks, gas, anti-counterfeiting, etc.
Next to them is Ikalogic who is making the wireless oscilloscope probe which can be connected to desktop or mobile phone via WiFi and sends the data to it wirelessly. They also made the software to view the in detailed pattern of the signal. Ready to make uncompromised measurements, right out of your pocket. Anywhere. Anytime.
CPI Is the Center for process innovation company based in UK who collaborates with universities and SMEs to help them bring the new and innovative products to the market. They support their partner starting from the Concept to the market including but not limited to business support for the technology, manufacturing, supply chain management etc. Here they are showcasing the Inject printed copper PCB. One of the product is harvesting the energy from the NFC filed to glow the LEDs in the flexible PCB. There is also a giant OLED screen, Ethane sensor, breath sensor, and TB sensor. They are also showcasing the temperature and humidity logging circuit which has printed battery, microprocessor and two sensors inbuilt. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show!
Around the year 2000, the convergence on Linux and commodity x86_64 processors provided a homogeneous scientific computing platform which enabled the construction of the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) for LHC data processing. This allowed the High Energy Physics (HEP) community to use a homogeneous software model utilizing the x86_64 architecture. LHC experiments at CERN, in particular ATLAS and CMS, started investigating ARMv8 64-bit (AArch64) architecture for HEP needs. A journey which started in 2013. The LHC community faces a great challenge regarding computing needs in 10 years and has started exploring public clouds, volunteer computing (e.g., LHC@home) and HPC facilities to increase peak computation capacity. This talk will contain information about future (a timeline of 10 years) computation needs for LHC experiments and the more recent progress done by ATLAS, CernVM and CMS teams on using ARMv8 64-bit/AArch64.

Filmed at SID’s Displayweek 2017, we got to see CLEARink’s monochrome, color and video displays. This was the first public demo of this technology which originated at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Company is aiming for applications which require all the benefits of ePaper along with mass producible color and full motion video. They have commenced trial manufacturing at a LCD fab and hope to derive benefits of a fully depreciated factory. I interviewed their vp of marketing, Sri who has been in the display industry for decades. I also posted my interview with CLEARink's CEO here.
Standard Graphene shows their water filtering system using their graphene layer to help filter river water for it to be fully fresh drinkable, they are talking to the Vietnamese and Cambodian Government and talking with UNICEF to bring this to Africa. Standard Graphene also shows some of their other latest demonstrations featuring their graphene at the right price and at the right quantity. They are showing a 5kg ultra-light bicycle infused with graphene allows to increase 130% strength on the bicycle. Also bringing their technology to the automotive and later also to space industry.
