Beibamboo – innovative clothing made out of bamboo, especially designed for infants
Until now, no effort has been made to consider the substantial, un-necessary discomfort that babies (0-3 yrs) in hospital care can suffer from during dressing and changing, due to the ubiquitous use of IV-equipment (cannulas, tubes etc). The Beibamboo clothing range reduces baby’s stress and pain, allows parents direct involvement with caring for their child, eases the workload of hospital staff, and can ultimately reduce overall costs for governments, as babies’ recovery time can in theory be greatly reduced. (Tests are under way.) By selling directly at hospitals thru vending machines, the customer gets the needed items exactly where and when needed, at a time when there is no possibility to shop around or surf the internet.

The world’s first multi-screen optimised website builder for designers.
Internet usage on mobile phones will outgrow desktop Internet usage in 2013. But a shocking 98% of small business websites aren’t mobile friendly. What’s more, the problem extends further than mobile phone screens, also affecting tablets and TVs. Content should be enjoyable on all platforms equally. As it stands, conventional web building tools don’t provide the required flexibility to make this work because they’re template based. Unfortunately, hiring a developer and a designer can be expensive and time consuming. Froont is the solution:
1) allows users to build websites that work across multiple platforms and screens, like mobile phones, tablets and TVs;
2) creates one, responsive website that is fast, SEO-friendly and easy to maintain;
3) is built for designers, but the intuitive drag’n’drop user interface allows anybody to build and maintain websites without any coding skills.

Low-interference Raman spectroscopy
“Molecules are quantum mechanical oscillators. The selectivity or the ability to identify chemicals of the vibrational spectrum is based on the fact that each molecule has its characteristics spectrum, fingerprint, defined by the geometry, atomic masses and the bonds. Thus the vibrational spectrum of a molecule is an “universal” constant – for example H2O, CH4 etc. spectra are identical on Earth and in a distant galaxy. The intensity (photons (/sec / spectral element) is the basis for the quantitative analysis, (g/liter of target analyte the sample contains). Analytical applications of vibrational spectroscopy had already a major role World War 2 engine fuel development – the vibrational spectra were collected with (slow, noisy and bulky) prism Mid Infrared (MIR) monochromators. Since the absorption coefficients are high at MIR, the sampling is “painful and difficult”. Starting from 1970, the demand for online process, low cost and portable instrumentation instrumentation resulted Near InfraRed (NIR) analysers which provide easy sampling and potential for use of fiberoptic probes allowing the physical separation of the instrument from the process. However, the information that NIR can provide is very restricted compared to MIR spectroscopy. Starting from 1990, Raman spectroscopy started to enter to the analytical instrumentation markets. Raman is an inelastic scattering process of photons from the molecules of the studied samples. Raman combines the high information content, of MIR, easy sample handling and potential for fiber optic sampling of NIR. In recent years, Raman has entered also to portable markets and the growth is high. Present applications of Raman include analytical laboratories, pharmaceutical industry material identification and quality control, military, homeland security, forensics, bioprocess monitoring, anything where we want to identify or measure concentrations of chemicals and the need for this ability is huge. The largest obstacle for the explosion of the Raman instrument markets, is the fact that Raman emission, being a weak phenomenon, is easily masked by fluorescent photons emitting from the sample when probed with the excitation laser. The fluorescence is a prohibiting problem in 90 % of the otherwise potential Raman applications. Our technology suppresses the fluorescence with a combination of a pulsed laser excitation and time gated detection, based on the fact that Raman response time is below 1 picoseconds whereas typical fluorescence lifetimes are few thousand picoseconds. The technology has potential to be applied in microscopy, process- and portable instruments”

NordicHug develops disinfection solutions for modern touch screen phones and tablets
Phones and tablets have millions of bacteria on them. It has been scientifically proven that some of these bacteria are very toxic to humans and could cause serious infections. However, currently there is no practical solution to disinfect modern touch screen phones and tablets that have special finger print repellant coating.

Verifying your check-ins on location-based services
We believe we are perfectly positioned to seize this massive market opportunity and become a leading context provider for truly location-aware apps. Maps are not always a necessary element of a location context. In fact, when directions are not needed, maps can unnecessarily complicate an otherwise smooth user experience. This is why our context is tied to places, not to geo-coordinates.
Recently we completed the the first version of our location API and plugin for Android. Since the beginning of June we have been in San Francisco, meeting with many location app companies operating on the Android platform. Our plan is to sign a few more launch partners prior our public launch later this year. We are still open to add more, so feel free to contact us at info at walkbase dot com for more information.
