Overview: Devina Kothari’s innovative solution for insulin delivery easily integrates into the user’s lifestyle with fashion-inspired wearable tech they can set and forget! It uses a closed-loop delivery method that detects blood glucose levels before slowly dispersing the appropriate insulin dosage. Not only automated, the process is also made pain-free by use of a micro-needle array where the diameter is smaller than that of a mosquito’s probe!
Additionally, integrated bio-sensors detect any unusual fluctuation in the patient’s glucose levels, pulse rate and other metrics and will automatically notify the appropriate party in the event of an emergency.

Overview: With its new home at the Düsseldorf airport in Germany, RAY is the world’s first operational parking robot! When you drive up, it scans your vehicle and adapts to its size before lifting and carrying it away to an ideal parking space. With connectivity to the flight database and a user-controled mobile app, it can have your car ready as soon as you land or whenever you’re ready. More flexible and agile than self-parking, it’s super-efficient and can create almost 60% more parking. Next time you’re at Düsseldorf, check it out yourself at parking structure P3!

Overview: The C-Walker is a radical PC + Table concept whose idea germinates from the fact that workstations with CPU, wires, screen and keyboard look cluttered and distracting. One of the ways to streamline the desk is to integrate the PC into the table itself. What we have now is a desk with wires that are internally set, a virtual keyboard and a projected screen. USB slots and CD ROM slots are flushed to the side of tabletop, along with the power button. Essentially we have a hybrid desk that part PC and part table. Yes, the functional future has arrived!
