Keynote: Google: Using Wearables to go from Open Heart Surgery to Bike Racing

Posted by Charbax – November 29, 2016

Heidi Dohse (who I interviewed here), Senior Program Manager at Google, shares her insights on empowering patients at the IDTechEx Show! on Nov 16. 2016. As a lifelong heart patient, Heidi pursued her desire to become an athlete and competitive cyclist. After having open heart surgery in 2010, she used wearable devices and technologies to provide the data she needed to go from the hospital bed to back on the bike and across the finish line of her first bike race.

Flexible Haptic feedback by Novasentis for AR/VR controllers, smartwatches, e-textiles and more

Posted by Charbax – November 24, 2016

Novasentis CEO introduces their flexible, thin, light, multi output haptic technology, here demonstrating how it may be used to enhanse sensing for AR/VR applications where you already have video and audio, and the haptic feedback that can be customized for each finger and programmed so that you can get a variety of "sensations", smart variable haptic frequencies can emulate the feeling of touching different materials in the AR/VR world. Francois did not name his customers but they are working with companies that are making AR/VR devices, gaming controllers and wearable devices. I have previously video blogged about the flexible wearable devices and they are making further progress with that application also where the haptic actuators are embedded into the smart watch strap. I can think of many more applications for this technology including smart clothing. Watch my channel to hear latest updates about Novasentis that is the only company that has this type of technology.

Instrumental helps find and fix issues on manufacturing lines

Posted by Charbax – November 23, 2016

Instrumental is modernizing manufacturing, enabling customers to continuously improve their parts, processes, and products. Founded by two ex-Apple engineers, Anna Shedletsky and Samuel Weiss, Instrumental cuts inefficiencies in the hardware development and production process by capturing data that is normally lost and using computer vision and machine learning algorithms to extract useful information that can be used to improve parts, products, and processes. In this video, they demonstrate an Instrumental inspection system. It takes high resolution images at key states of product assembly, and enables engineers to inspect and take geometric measurements on those units minutes or weeks later. Instrumental customers have used the system to discover issues they didn’t know they had, and to quickly get to root cause, saving significant time and money during development and production. Customers have also tracked product quality, driven yield improvements, and set specifications remotely using Instrumental’s software. Their current customer base spans hardware, apparel, and top-tier manufacturers. Check out a customer case study to learn more about how Instrumental can support your development efforts, or visit them at http://www.instrumental.ai

Movidius, computer vision for IoT, drones, smartphones, IP cameras and more to come

Posted by Charbax – November 23, 2016

Movidius provides machine vision technology, they released Myriad 2, they claim to be the industry’s first always-on vision processor. It delivers high-performance computational imaging and visual awareness in devices where every last drop of battery power counts, performing at under 1.2W of power means Myriad 2 can be deployed into tiny IoT devices such as smart cameras, drones and wearables, featuring a balance between programmable and hard wired elements, giving developers immediate access to its advanced vision processing core, while also allowing them to develop proprietary capabilities through the Myriad development platform. Movidius is being acquired by Intel, you can read more here. Movidius won the Best IoT Technology development award at IDTechEx USA 2016, you can read more here.

CDT printed flexible OLED (low-cost)

Posted by Charbax – November 22, 2016

Cambridge Display Technology Limited is developing printed low-cost flexible OLEDs that can offer low power, bespoke colours and long lifetime in everyday applications (read more: https://www.cdtltd.co.uk/technology-scope/flexoled/). The resulting OLEDs are thin and lightweight, with distributed icons over large areas achieving performances suitable for a wide range of consumer products, with demonstrated compatibility with touch sensor and NFC technologies. CDT is able to make RGBW OLEDs at less than 5V operating voltage. Low power requirements has enabled remote powering of OLEDs by NFC, and they are currently exploring ways to integrate into products with partner companies. The OLEDs are thin (less than0.3mm), lightweight and flexible, with long lifetimes. CDT is a subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical and our 100-strong interdisciplinary team has world-class expertise in physics, chemistry, engineering, microelectronics, materials and life sciences. CDT scientists work on a range of topics from fundamental understanding to optimising materials and devices for market applications. Current research themes include Organic Electronics, Energy Harvesting & Storage, Opto-Electronic Detection, Biosensors and OLED Displays and Lighting.
