Bainisha Body Motion Capturing using Printed Electronics

Posted by Charbax – May 15, 2015

Bainisha is a high-tech start-up dedicated to the development of a new paradigm in Body Motion Capturing. This interview, taken at the IDTechEx event on Wearable Technology, shows some of the product they are working on. Based on a thin hyper-stretchable film version of an Inverse Artificial Muscle, it delivers a set of new and hitherto unattained functionalities in terms of accuracy, speed & differentiation. The on-body concept guarantees an Absolute Body References Frame and hence sets a new standard for Medical Quality Data. Because the system has no "wake-up"-threshold and no filtering and/or damping combined with a +kHz capturing speed, it allows capturing such minute displacements as muscle tremor, pre-natal contractions, fatigue induced tremble etc... as well as explosive kinetics.

Andromium OS on MHL Lapdock, Productivity multi-window UI for Android

Posted by Charbax – May 12, 2015

Gordon Zheng, Founder and Lead Developer, presents Andromium OS, described as a guest OS that run on top of Android, leveraging existing Android API's as well as a new UI library to bring a productivity keyboard/mouse desktop style user experience similar to Windows and OSX. Currently Android does not support a true multi-window experience, however some manufactures like LG and Samsung have made some modification to android (ROM) to bring the side by side apps and windows app experience for their devices. Andromium takes a similar approach, while Samsung and LG's approaches are exclusive to their devices, Andromium OS runs on any Android device as long as their device support Android version 4.4 and above. The next step for Andromium will be to release a Developer SDK and Andromium app store to the developer community, to grow the OS ecosystem.

The Andromium SDK, designed as an additional library that developers can import into their existing Android projects, allowing their android apps to inherit the Andromium OS multi-windows functionality, as well as have the correct UI elements for a keyboard and mouse interface. The Android developers can continue to use their favorite Developer environment: ADT or Eclipse, they just have to import Andromium's library into their project.

Currently Andromium OS in on the Google playstore as a public beta, it is currently around 5mb download. Long term the OS/App will stay relatively small. Andromium can support most devices on Android 4.4 and above (including Lollipop). The Andromium OS/UI is hardware accelerated, so that users should experience 30fps or above according to the performance of the ARM Processor. For example on a Samsung Note 4, Andromium OS can play a 4k video, surf in the browser and still have close to 30fps ui rendering when moving or resizing the application windows.

Enfucell Printed Battery Powering Golf Sensor, Temperature Sensors and More

Posted by Charbax – May 11, 2015

Enfucell is a customized battery supplier to the printed electronics industry. The company has developed SoftBattery®, a thin, flexible and eco-friendly printed power source and at the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe event in Berlin it showcased a range of products based on this battery. It includes a powered wireless golf sensor patch which was developed in a joint project with Qualcomm. The patch is attached to a golf club head for measuring acceleration and angular velocity. The acquired data is transferred via low energy Bluetooth (BLE) to an application on a mobile device. Enfucell battery powers the BLE data transmission without additional capacitor demonstrating the highest peak power capability in the industry. Battery is also fully integrated to the system.

The disposable patch is helping golf players to improve their swing. This is the first time that a player can actually get feedback from the club head. A fully integrated printed battery enables thin and light construction which does not interfere with the normal stroke. Thanks to the BLE communication, data can be analyzed on site on the driving range during a training session. The data is collected to and processed on an Android tablet.

A similar patch can be tailored for other racquet sports, shooting, bowling, etc. Enfucell is looking for partners for commercializing the product. The new product platform completes Enfucell application range with previously introduced temperature logger (collaboration with NXP) and iontophoresis patch (collaboration with The Ionto Team, Spain). Also these products have fully integrated Enfucell battery technology. All of these are shown in the video. To learn more see http://www.PrintedElectronicsWorld.com
