The May 14, 2012
Ringbow was the lucky winner of the contest organised by our office in Tel Aviv and won a 5-day stay for 2 to take part in the Futur en Seine festival held next June 14th to 24th: this is a tremendous opportunity for Ringbow to meet French and international ordering parties, service providers and innovative companies.
The contest closed last week. 30 projects of great quality were examined by a jury whose members were:
- Yalhal Zilka, Magma Venture Fund ($900m)
- Moran Bar, NewsGeek
- Irit Israeli-Kahana, AfterDocs
- Michal Shik, Start-up Manager at Manufacturers Association
- Marion Fevrier, Futur en Seine Director, Cap Digital
- Daniel Bessis, Paris Region Economic Development Agency representative in Israel
Headed by Eifrat Barit, Ringbow's project introduces a ring which can add functionalities when interacting with touchscreens and playing a video game, writing/drawing, surfing the web etc. In fact, the project has won other prizes, particularly in the United States, and it could have some impact on our digital habits!
The 4 top-ranking projects after Ringbow were:
- iOnRoad, an iPhone and Android augmented-driving application http://www.ionroad.com/
- InoLact, a very basic and non-intrusive device to help breastfeeding women measure the amount of milk absorbed by their baby
- The wheelchair controlled by electroencephalogram waves from the brain, introduced by Shapira College, Natanya
- xTendi, the 'Augmented Reality Powerpoint, used for pointing a smartphone at an object and getting immediate augmented-reality information about it.
Please note that our office organises the same contest on the Palestinian side.
