Daisyphone, virtual cocoon and smart house at London science conference
Date:3/4/2009

A Daisyphone, Virtual Cocoon and a 'Smart' house for people with dementia are just some of the highlights at a major exhibition on 4th March, organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

'Pioneers 09' is a free event aiming to bring together, and build partnerships between, forward-thinking UK researchers and business people. The event includes a dynamic, interactive exhibition highlighting examples of leading-edge university research.

Exhibits include:

  • A mock-up of the 'Virtual Cocoon' a Virtual Reality device that aims to stimulate all five senses with unprecedented realism.
  • 3D heart scans performed live on volunteers, demonstrating cutting-edge medical imaging techniques.
  • Live data feeds from pollution sensors placed around the exhibition area, and from an innovative traffic pollution sensor network in Gateshead.
  • Touch-screen demonstrations showing how innovative web technology can help in disaster response situations.
  • 'Smart' house technologies to help people with dementia live more independently.
  • A bucking bronco-style ride that YOU get to control, basing your decisions on the rider's ever-changing biodata (heart rate, sweat response etc).
  • Giant Instrument, Sonic Visualiser and Daisyphone try out some groundbreaking digital music devices.
  • A 'Jump-o-meter' measuring landing forces when you dunk a basketball, showing the stresses that next-generation artificial joints will be better at withstanding.

In addition, the extensive, list of participants includes: Tom Ilube, CEO of online identity specialists Garlik; John Armitt, Chairman of EPSRC and the Olympic Delivery Authority; and science journalist Quentin Cooper.

The hands-on exhibition will include over 20 top UK research groups, arranged in four categories: Great Outdoors; Interactive Home; Rapid Response; and Energy Centre.
