Based on Sakti3 iis, we are committed to solid state technology and platform, making breakthroughs in energy density, reliability and manufacturing of batteries.
They have a strong competitive advantage in three key areas:-material issues: applying solid state product technology and extensive R & D to materials and processes, sakti3 has been able to simplify the number of materials used to make efficient batteries.
Addressing material issues is the most difficult part of any new device physics, and Sakti3 has developed intellectual property rights to achieve this goal.
-Scalability issues: Unlike other solid-state battery manufacturing processes that are trying to make new materials, equipment, and tools, Sakti3 has developed their built-in batteries
Based on house models of devices that have been proven to be scalable in other industries, so they cleverly eliminate the scalability challenges in manufacturing by building devices that have been proven to be scalable.
They believe, therefore, that their results will be extended to large batteries and large production facilities.
-Attribute challenge: the research and development of sakti3 has produced a model with subversive attributes-
Today, the energy density doubles and the future gains are even greater.
These are features that no competitor is close to showing in real material, and it is important that they are able to produce the benefits predicted by their R & D results
This has changed the battery industry.
High energy density, scalable systems and hope for future improvements.
Sakti3 leadership team has more than 100 years of collective business experience
Experience in big companies, manufacturing, equipment, finance, and R & D, led by Ann Marie sasteely, professor of material science at the University of Michigan. 2.
It\'s a green energy bet!
We all need energy. we fight to protect our energy supply (
Although the zero carbon footprint is very green)
Given several disasters, it is considered too risky.
Also, we don\'t want to waste nuclear weapons in \"our backyard.
\"What if you could build a safe nuclear power plant and take advantage of the existing waste from other nuclear power plants?
What a charming offer!
Input cross-atomic energy.
Almost all commercial reactors currently in operation use uranium oxide fuels in the form of solid particles, which are surrounded by metal cladding, helping the fuel to maintain its shape and prevent the release of fission products to the surrounding coolant.
In contrast, the liquid fuel used by trans-atomic-powered reactors is composed of uranium dissolved in molten fluoride.
This solution can serve both fuel and coolant.
Liquid fuels have significant advantages over solid fuels.
It provides higher efficiency during normal operation and failure
Safe cooling by releasing liquid fuel to a large containment tank that does not require any active cooling (
Different from current reactor design).
Some of the basic technologies of this type of reactor were invented 50 years ago in the United States, and TransAtomic\'s team has come up with a solution to commercialize this alternative design.
They work closely with a team of scientists and consultants specializing in nuclear energy and energy technology and a strong industry
Veterans are part of the team to achieve this, all led by the CEO and colleagues
Founder Leslie Dewan
While there is still a lot of work to be done in translating theoretical and laboratory results into building actual nuclear power plants, I am very pleased to see that ideological leadership will provide us with better alternatives. 3.
Space class of yuan
If you have a new/extra feel, how much more information can you handle?
Well, the promise of augmented reality is to add a new dimension to what you see!
Application Scope from professional (
For example, surgeons see more
Operating Time-segment data)to education (similar multi-
Supplement the printed content or physical layer in front of the reader)
The architect shows the impression of the final product as he walks through the expected area with the client)
Toys, games (
Virtual games played in physical spaces such as office or home).
As the name clearly conveys, space glasses are practical glasses that users wear to experience augmented reality visible through glasses. Unlike Google-
Glass, space Glass adds the ability to physically interact with the projection in front of you, for example, the ability to use your hand to grab the floating window of the projection and move it to another corner, or play chess with your hands while grabbing virtual games (projected)
Pieces on the real table
Launched the space class through Kickstarter in the middle
In 2013, the funding target was $100,000 and $194,000.
They are now shipping products and expect new orders in 2015.
A great team led by CEO Meron grebez. 4.
Pillow structure sensor * developed a 3D sensor for the iPad, creating a detailed model of the real world in front of the iPad (
Imagine a room of a reasonable size with physical objects)
Applications can use this very detailed virtual model to create virtual objects that recognize and interact with the real world.
For example, game developers can create a virtual puppy that jumps onto the real couch in your living room, chasing a virtual cat in the room, while avoiding real physical obstacles.
We all love fun games, but the equally exciting use of this technology is to strengthen the communication between ideas and concepts in the crowd.
For example, architects and customers browse the iPad to discuss options for remodeling that cover the physical space in front of the iPad.
The structural sensors were launched by Kickstarter at the end of 2013, with the goal of raising $100,000, but ending the initial financing at $1. 3 million!
Their products have been shipped.
An excellent company led by co-

The promise of formal 3D printing is huge and it may bring anyone\'s ability to make anything anywhere, but before Captain Picard orders gray tea from StarTrek\'s Replicator, we
A bad day for Starbucks).
Today, there are many cheap 3D printers that power the imagination of enthusiasts and the next generation of entrepreneurs, but these low-cost printers are basically heating and squeezing out plastic to build a droplet model at once.
There are several challenges to this approach, namely, accuracy (
Essential for building complex parts)
And surface quality: FormLabs builds a desktop 3D printer that uses a different process called stereo molding ,(
Invented by 3D system in 1986).
Unlike extruded plastic, formLabs\'s desktop 3D printer can create highly accurate complex models at a cost of about $3,000 per printer, this makes their products very suitable for small specialties other than \"hobbyists\" 3D, but printers cannot afford higher industrial machine costs.
FormsLabs was launched by a group of researchers at MIT\'s Media Lab, initially funded by Kickstarter at the end of 2012.
Their initial goal was to raise $100,000, but they raised $3 million.
They are considered one of the most successful beginnings.
Ups for Kickstarter.
This clearly shows the great interest of the public.
Their next generation, called Form 1, has already started shipping.
The company is led by the company.
Founder and CEO of Maxim Lubovsky.
As a veteran of Boston, I do agree with Maxim that Boston seems to be a more serious person to solve a really tricky problem.
* Update: components originally called structural sensors are called structures. IO.
We regret this mistake.
