Winners of IDTechEx Launchpad

Ten early-stage companies have been selected for the IDTechEx Launchpad, an exciting initiative that provides them the opportunity to showcase prototypes and demonstrations of their new products.

Ares Materials, Inc.

We will be showing samples of our Pylux flexible polymer material family, and a stretchable LED array demo based on our Pylux S spatially-heterogenous modulus substrate. www.aresmaterials.com


We will be showing an electrochromic-based, single-layer, printable and irreversible state indicator for IoT and healthcare www.chromera.net


EXOVITE is a pioneer in the field of tele-RHB, eHealth and mHealth, that promotes technological innovation in tools and medical procedures. EXOVITE was born with the aim to both optimize medical treatments and improve quality life of patients during the healing process. www.exovite.com


We will be displaying the Infi-tex Jacket - demonstrating our patented SoftSwitch button panel Multitouch mat - desktop touch sensitive textile mat, which displays where and how much pressure has been applied www.infi-tex.com


Based on its patented printable sensing technology, Nanomade will showcase its Touch and Force sensitive prototypes: smartphones, smartwatches, heart rate and breathing rate monitoring seat and a flexible pressure sensitive MP3 Player. www.nanomade.com


We will be showing cycling charging/discharging of a NiveauUp battery cell (1Ah) at 10C/10C rates (at DoD of 100%), live or by video playing. www.NiveauUp.com

Saule Technologies

At IDTechEx, Saule Technologies would present a flexible, ink-jet printed, perovskite solar module that is capable of charging various electrical gadgets - such as smartphones - even when illuminated by artificial light. It is a proof of concept, a technology that is capable of delivering electricity with an LCOE as low as 0.05 USD / kWh, and with plenty of room for further price reduction. www.sauletech.com

Terzo Power Systems

We will be showing Ultra-efficient modular, hybrid-electric power system that that is a clean-sheet rethinking to diesel power alternatives specifically for agricultural, construction, mining, and other heavy-duty/off-road vehicle applications. www.terzopower.com

Two Carbon.

We have a Two Carbon polyester graphene yarn for use in textiles and apparel. It is conductive. We also have a Two Carbon graphene outsole on a sport shoe. www.twocarbon.com


We will be bringing the App and video demo of our Sport/Concussion/Health Monitoring and Assessment Product - Precise inch level motion analysis, gait, sprint, agility, jump and biometric assessment. We will also be bringing a live demo of our augmented reality motion tracking and intelligent motion analyses. www.xco.io

Feedback from the 2016 Launchpad Winners

"We honestly did not know what to expect from this exhibition, as it was the first in the history of the company. We were quite overwhelmed by the extent of business opportunities and exchange of these." Mr Nils Sveje, Bike2Aps

"The exhibition has been perfectly organized and it has been a very useful showcase for our new-born start-up. The product idea has encountered great interest of the other companies." Dr Francesco Guido, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia

Helping launch new business

Why are we doing this? IDTechEx recognize that it can be difficult for very small companies or research organizations to show their big advances in the traditional manner of exhibiting where no budget may be assigned. The IDTechEx Launchpad will give such entities the ability to reach the international audience, and for the community to see the state-of-the-art systems.
