Clothes will shrink to fit "at the push of a button" within five years says XO Co-Founder, Benjamin Males. Micro-robotics and 3D-printing are poised to revolutionise fashion, says the designer of Lady Gaga's bubble-blowing dress.
Parts of developing world suffer from an acute shortage of clean drinking water. Michelle Moram's research lab seeks to design new materials that can enable us to make low voltage, off-grid, affordable, robust UV water sterilization devices.
"Wearables are not that wearable — yet", Sonny Vu, Founder of Misfit Wearables. Shine is collecting a vast store of potentially valuable data about the human body. “We are trying to hit that first layer of making the information useful,” said Vu. “But delivering insights and actionable things you can do, that is hard. It will take time and a lot of data.”
MariaBox is a wireless marine environment analysis device for monitoring chemical & biological pollutants while installed into a buoy, a maritime means of transport or mooring. It will be of high-sensitivity, portable & capable of repeating measurements over a long time, allowing permanent deployment at sea.
An Internet of Things device has been developed by scientists that could help to detect levels of water pollution in lakes and rivers in real-time. Mirella Di Lorenzo has created a low-cost sensor that could be used in developing countries where some water sources are undrinkable or not clean enough to wash in safely.
Andy Cooper is leading a group inventing a type of plastic could be the solution to our reliance on greenhouse gas-producing fossils fuels. The plastic is like a sponge which can absorb carbon dioxide and reduce pollution levels around the world.
Jacques Penders has been working with firefighters from South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue to showcase a unique group of firefighting robots. The 'Guardians' are a 'swarm' of autonomous robots that can navigate and search urban areas like warehouses and factories.
Robot swarms - what can they do? Martin Wisling is leading the ASCENS Project to research 'Autonomous Ensembles'. For many real-world problems, it is often more effective to use large cooperating teams of simple, cheap robots than to use a single complex robot. Discover their potential applications at #reworktech.
Imagine that data could be transposed into a tactile experience. This is precisely what the CEEDs project, funded by the EU, promises. It uses integrated technologies to support human experience, when attempting to make sense of very large datasets.
The BrainScaleS project aims at understanding function and interaction of multiple spatial and temporal scales in brain information processing. Karlheinz Meier's research will establish a systematic path from biological data, simulations on supercomputers and systematic reduction of cell complexity.
Stuart Maggs and the team at IAAC have created 'Minibuilders', a new breed of pint-sized drone that can 3D print at architectural scale. "We're sure that Minibuilders will play a big and important role in the future of robotic construction and definitely want to continue this research", says Petr Novikov.
QuantuMDx has a working prototype for a device intended to quickly test a sample of blood, sputum or even tumor cells for genetic markers that provide information to guide a doctor's decisions on how to treat a patient. "We want to put a full diagnostic test into the palms of health professionals' hands," said Elaine Warburton.
Jon Major has developed a new manufacturing method which could bring down the cost of making a type of solar cell, replacing the toxic element in the process with a material found in bath salts. This would result in a "massive, unexpected cost benefit" with potential to transform the economics of solar energy.
A startup called Ultrahaptics aims to make gesture control and virtual reality more engaging by using ultrasound waves to let you feel like you’re touching virtual objects and surfaces with your bare hands. Applications could include improving navigation for the visually impaired by projecting the sensation of Braille letters onto finger.
Fitness trackers such as FuelBand, Jawbone, and Fitbit have led the way in familiarising consumers with wearable technology. Watchie, a device created with Concirrus, is designed to help alzheimer sufferers, it allows a wearer’s whereabouts to be located reliably, both indoors and outdoors, helping careers and comforting families.
BleepBleeps is a UK company that wants to make the Internet of Things a whole lot more approachable and personable with its range of connected parenting devices. One product is the ‘Sammy Screamer’, a small triangular device you can attach to practically anything that will emit a noise when moved.
With the creation of so many data points defining our behaviours, activities, & locations, the next step in emerging tech is a service that consolidates our experience. A mash-up of the powerful NLP of IBM’s Watson, the voice-activated intelligent assistance of Siri, the productivity enhancement of Google Now, and the biometric & physiological quantifying of the self through wearables.
3D weaving invented by RCA graduate Oluwaseyi Sosanya can "reduce cost and improve structural integrity" in architecture, create better sportswear and even medical implants. "Medical textiles are really taking off right now," he says. "If you use natural fibres, natural resins, it can be really interesting".
Discover cutting-edge technologies on the horizon from the world's leading innovators & scientists. Learn from the experts in emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, sensors & genome sequencing. Think differently about challenges. Choose the difficult path. Think big.
The summit will showcase the opportunities of exponentially accelerating technologies and their impact on business & society. Trying to predict what's on the horizon? Too late. The future is already here. Learn the latest technological advancements from a global line-up of experts.
A unique opportunity to interact with leading scientists, entrepreneurs, influential businesses & exciting startups in the very same place. What happens when you put leading thinkers, makers & doers in the same room? Meet fellow innovators with the same passion to change the world.
LSO St Luke's is an 18th-century Grade 1 listed beautifully restored Hawksmoor church. A stylish and sophisticated venue renowned for its' atmospheric setting, it's the perfect place to be inspired and start creative discussions. The venue is fully accessible.
