Prynt, a San Francisco-based startup founded by two graduates of a Berkeley Engineering entrepreneurship program, is bringing instant print photography to smartphones. The grads designed a smartphone case equipped with a built-in mini-printer, for printing digital photos on the go.
The founders, Clément Perrot and David Zhang, were schoolmates at École Polytechnique, France’s premier science and engineering university, but it wasn’t until they met again at Berkeley in 2013 that they really got to know each other.
The two attended Learn2Launch, a program hosted by the Technology Transfer Program of the Institute of Transportation Studies in partnership with the Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology. As a result of the work they did together in a mobile app course, they decided to become business partners.
How prepared are you? No one knows when the next big earthquake will hit California, but most can agree on one thing — it's going to happen at some point. And when it does, it has the potential to cost billions of dollars and shatter the lives of millions of Californians.
QuakeCAFE, a project of the CITRIS Connected Communities Initiative, is an online quiz asking users about their earthquake preparedness. At the end it compares your readiness to that of your neighbors. Through the initiative, CITRIS hopes to gain valuable data, educate users about their earthquake preparedness, and create an open dialogue with government so that they can be ready to support Californians when the big one comes.
'Internet of Things' categoryAn egg that monitors fertility and texts your partner 'hint, hint' when the time is right, a professional blazer that uses sensors and heating elements to regulate body temperature, a glove that measures rhythm while playing the piano to help students learn — these are just a few of the gadgets invented by students and presented this week for Challenge Lab in the 'internet of things' category.
This year's presentations included:
Damara - 1st place winnerDelayed child birth, high-cost fertility treatments and other factors can make getting pregnant challenging for many couples. Damara is an egg-shaped assistant that helps women monitor their fertility and ovulation. All the data is stored in a cloud service. When fertility levels are optimal, it texts "hint, hint" to the woman's partner to let them know that the time is right.
Surge - 2nd place winnerThe team from Surge Are you a doctor wondering if your patient picked up their prescription? A hospital administrator wanting to check current medical supply stock? Surge is a hospital inventory management system for tracking prescriptions, supplies and other materials in one central database.
Duraband - 3rd place winnerDuraband - Smart Solutions for a Safer World Accidents on construction sites cost developers and insurance companies billions of dollars per year. Duraband is a wristband that helps keep construction workers safe by monitoring body temperature, heart rate, and other indicators that can notify foremen when a worker may be at risk for injury.
SporTeam Spor Wasting food is a big issue — it is estimated that 30%-50% of food brought home from the grocery store is never eaten, costing families approximately $2,275 annually. Spor is a system that allows the user to keep track of food inventories by scanning receipts and even uses sensors to track ethylene to sense when fruits and vegetables need to be thrown out.
BloomBloom is a platform for developers in the "internet of things" market LinkedIn, GitHub, YouTube, Sketchfab — these are all platforms where creators can showcase their skills. Bloom aims to be a similar platforms where IoT creators can show off their skills, be seen, and get connected to job opportunities.
CouplitTeam Couplit Remember promise rings? Well, don't be surprised if teens in the future wear 'smart' versions of these classic symbols of love and commitment. Couplit is a wristband that just you and your partner wear — and on it you will receive personalized messages that only you and your partner can see.
'Smart Cities India' categoryThe Smart Cities India initiative is a project that aims to identify and develop 100 cities in India to be 'smart' — i.e. have an innovative, open, and sustainable business model, data-based decision making, working and efficient infrastructure, and an overall dynamic and vibrant community. The initiative represents a $15 billion investment from Prime Minister Narenda Modi's government. Currently, only 31% of India's population live in urban areas. It is projected that by 2050, that 75% of India's population will live in urban areas — making smart cities indispensable for the future. Challenge Lab students are tasked with studying Visakhapatnam — or 'Vizag' for short — a city sponsored by President Obama for USTDA investment and one that will serve as a model for the 100 cities in the Smart Cities India plan. The goal for students in Challenge Lab is to capture the lessons being learned in Vizag, evaluate the cost-benefit analysis of public-private partnerships, suggest open platforms for communication to involve the public in decision-making, and conduct data analysis and mining to suggest ways to lower operating costs, develop technological solutions for safety, security, traffic, telecom, etc. Six groups focused on one aspect of studying Vizag: 1) Energy & Pollution, 2) Food & Water, 3) Housing & Transportation, 4) Communication, 5) Safety & Security, and 6) Education & Entertainment.
Smart Cities PhotosThe Smart Cities India capstone group — this group synthesizes all the research from each smart city area. 'VIZENERGY' - the energy and pollution group 'Vizag One' - the housing and transportation smart city group 'adViz' - the safety and security group 'Sigfox' - the telecommunications smart city group 'Soilsmart' - the food and water smart city group 'Certify' - the Education and Entertainment group.
Students headed to IndiaThe Smart Cities India team will travel to India in early 2016 to present their findings, which will be used to develop Vizag into a model smart city. Good luck team!
