MEMS Technology Showcase® will give MEMS Executive Congress® attendees an intimate look at some of the most unique and inspiring MEMS-enabled applications in the business. After a competitive application process, MEMS Industry Group (MIG) selected six finalists that show how MEMS enhances the consumer experience, highlighting the “MEMS inside the machine.” Each finalist will get five minutes to wow the audience, who will vote for their favorite product via text or the new MEMS Executive Congress mobile app. Moderator
Shawn G. DuBravac, chief economist and senior director of research, Consumer Electronics Association, will both host the Showcase and ‘crown’ the winner at the end of the day.
MEMS Technology Showcase finalists include:
BodyMedia’s VUE Patch is a seven-day, disposable body-monitoring patch that measures calorie burn, activity levels and sleep patterns, creating a snapshot of lifestyle habits to guide recommendations for weight loss, diabetes management, sports/fitness, corporate wellness, and more.
12-axis Xtrinsic Sensor Platform for Windows 8
Freescale Semiconductor’s 12-axis Xtrinsic sensor platform for Windows 8®
extends sensor fusion in tablets, slates, laptops and other portable devices. This complete hardware and software reference platform fuses accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope data using a Freescale ColdFire+ MCU. It also features a ‘smart’ pressure sensor that provides pressure and altitude data. Certified for Windows 8.
Intel Atom Z2760 for Windows 8 tablets and convertibles
The Intel® Atom™ processor Z2760
(“Clover Trail”) was architected specifically for Windows 8. It is based on Intel’s 32nm process technology, powers lightweight tablets and convertibles that meet the demands of consumers and business users, and includes outstanding battery life, always-on technology, connected standby and the sleekest designs available. This touch-enabled tablet features a sensor hub microcontroller with an array of physical and logical motion sensors (including accelerometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, fusion sensors (compass, device orientation, and inclinometer), proximity, additional location systems (ALS) and GPS. Certified for Windows 8.
Light Bohrd, LLC, is looking to make revolutionary contributions in skateboarding and snowboarding style and safety by adding the world’s first motion-activated LED lights to each sport’s respective boards. The Light Bohrd LED design uses patent-pending technology to store energy and activate LED lights to illuminate the board’s graphics. With technology
completely embedded, Light Bohrd’s boards are charged wirelessly through magnetic induction and are brought to life by the wave of a magnet. The lights are then activated with motion. A fully charged Light Bohrd will stay lit for up to six hours.
is a wearable sensor and smartphone app that provides feedback on posture and movement. The sensor band is worn around the waist and gently vibrates when the wearer slouches to remind him/her to sit or stand up straight. The smartphone app displays an avatar that mimics the wearer’s movements and posture in real time, capturing that information when he/she sits, stands, walks, runs and sleeps. It is compatible with the iPhone 5, 4S, new iPod touch (5th gen) or new iPad (3rd gen).
is the first robotic-ball gaming device controlled with a tilt, touch or swing from a smartphone or tablet. It immerses users in a new type of gameplay called “mixed-reality,” in which real and virtual elements are seamlessly merged. Sphero interacts with mobile apps, giving people new ways to test their skills, play games with friends, and more. Users can even employ Sphero as a controller for on-screen gameplay. With free apps being developed continuously, including a mixed-reality version of golf, Sphero provides plenty of gaming thrills.
Please join us Thursday, November 8, 2012, 11:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m. for MEMS Technology Showcase at MEMS Executive Congress. This panel is sponsored by Movea.
Register today for MEMS Executive Congress
As a business rather than a technical conference, MEMS Executive Congress provides a unique forum for MEMS solution providers and OEM integrators to exchange ideas and information during panel discussions and networking events. This truly unique two-day event is the year’s must-attend conference for the entire MEMS supply chain.
