Bainisha shows their body motion capturing in their high performance wearable systems consisting of wearable second skin patches for remote motion capturing, in which batteries, antennas, electronics and sensors (including both the Bainisha sensor and IMU’s to form a hybrid system) are embedded, that can be worn 24/7 up to 3 weeks, delivering a 4D super accurate topological map of the measured body part for top level analytics. Filmed at the IDTechEx Show.
8Power presents the Track100, a 100% self-powered Energy Harvesting LoraWan LPWA GPS Tracker for creating Sensor Networks that run on vibrations and solar. These can be installed all over the place, never having to go back to change the batteries nor recharging the devices to power the Sensor Network IoT. 8Power Ltd received the Best Technical Development within Energy Harvesting Award at the IDTechEx Show.

As a spin off from Swiss ETH Zurich University, the Fotokite Pro is the drone that CNN, BBC and many other News media are already using to easily create live aerial video for example to report live when people were queuing to vote at the US election, it is the only drone approved to be used by the FCC because it is tethered. Being tethered allows it to be lighter since it doesn't fly with a battery, it can fly for an unlimited amount of time getting power through the cable, it's safe because it is tethered not needing on board GPS, on board computer vision, and more. A live low-latency uncompressed Full HD video downlink enables effective framing and live broadcast using an external HDMI or SDI port. The Fotokite Phi in the consumer version, more compact, lighter and most affordable GoPro-carrying quadcopter yet that was successfully crowdfunded for $249 each at Indiegogo.
Makeblocks are modular arduino robots for stem education. The Airblock is a Modular and Programmable Drone with drone mode, underwater and hovecraft. The the airblock sells for $179. The ultimate robot kit is an Arduino and Raspberry Pi compatible robot kit that can take the form of a Rolling Tank, Detecting Robot, Catapult Ram, and Robotic Ant. There are ten assembly ideas in the box. The ultimate robot sells for $189. The starter robot kit is a lower end arduino compatible robot kit that sells for $149. The starter kit can be made into a robot tank or a three-wheel robot car. And then there is Makeblock Neuron which is an An Electronic Building Block Platform successfully got crowdfunded at on Kickstarter.
