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.

'Pioneers 09' is being organised by EPSRC and supported by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI).

You can sign up for the full day of activities. Alternatively, you can attend at any point in the day and talk to the exhibitors about their individual projects.
