MEMS Executive Congress® US 2012

MEMS Technology Showcase®

Sponsored by Movea

With MEMS Technology Showcase®, MIG promotes MEMS-enabled products through conferences and trade shows: demonstrating the MEMS in the machine.

MEMS Technology Showcase will give MEMS Executive Congress attendees an intimate look at some of the most unique MEMS-enabled applications in the business. After a competitive application process, MIG selected six finalists that show how MEMS enhances the user experience with electronic devices, highlighting the “MEMS INSIDE the machine.” Each finalist will get five minutes to wow the audience, who will vote for their favorite demo and a winner will be announced at the close of the conference on November 8.


Congratulations to the winner!

VUE Patch

BodyMediaBodyMedia’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

Intel AtomFreescale 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

Intel AtomThe 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

Light BohrdLight 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.

SpheroLUMOback 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).


SpheroOrbotix’s Sphero 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.
