EVERYONE can now play a song they love – in seconds. On a light-up piano keyboard that’s not like anything you’ve seen before

It’s 2019. Drones are delivering our groceries. Every aspect of life has been sped up, or made more convenient, by mobile apps. So why is it so hard to learn to play the piano? How is it that songs, which are a simple joy to listen to, are almost impossible to learn to play without 100s of hours of practice and 1,000s of dollars in lessons?

That’s why ROLI, the London music technology company, developed LUMI. It’s the world’s most cutting-edge system for learning the piano. It teachers everyone — even people who have never touched a piano before — to play songs they love in seconds. A glowingly lit keyboard connects to an app full of popular songs. Just follow the lights on the keys and the colors of the app, and you’ll be playing in seconds.

You’ve got to play it, and hear it, to believe it. ROLI is showing LUMI exclusively at IFA for the first time since the end of their phenomenally successful Kickstarter campaign, which raised $2 million for this hardware-software platform that’s about to revolutionize music creation.

Open ear headphones for the sports industry from AfterShokz

For a long time, sports headphones suffered from an agonising trade-off between safety and quality. In 2001, Voxtech saw an opportunity to put an end to all that using patented bone conduction technology. First developed for military special operations and law enforcement, they gave the technology a new lease of life. AfterShokz headphones deliver premium stereo sound with a unique completely open ear design. This ensures a level of safety and comfort that is second to none at a price point that is affordable. Since its inception in 2011, the company has been committed to innovation and making situational awareness a priority. This year, AfterShokz released two new generation products: Aeropex and Xtrainerz.

Aeropex uses bone conduction technology to transmit audio waves to the inner ear through the skull, bypassing the eardrum completely. They are placed on the cheekbones, just in front of your ears. By leaving the ear canal free, it is possible to remain alert and aware of ambient sounds, teammates, coaches, and more whilst you enjoy music or podcasts. Bluetooth® connectivity leaves you completely wireless, working with your phone up to 10m away.

Designed to withstand even intense training, Aeropex are IP67 approved making them fully water- and sweat-proof. This allows you to run come rain, sun or snow! Tilting at a 30-degree angle towards your face to stop vibrations, the Aeropex are integrated with Premium Pitch 2+ sound to deliver the best possible audio experience to every user.

Our next innovation, the Xtrainerz have been designed with swimmers in mind. They are waterproof to IP68 standard, which means they can be submerged in up to 2 metres of water for up to 2 hours. But these are not only headphones, they also store music for you. 4GB, or up to 1,200 songs worth, in fact. This means you can stash away your mobile phone as the music swims with you. Just hook up your headphones to a Mac or PC, and upload all your favourite tunes.

We have reduced transducer size and sound leakage by 50% compared to previous models. This improves both comfort and discretion.Bring them with you running, cycling, or wherever the mood takes you. After all, with 8 hours of playback capability, that’s plenty of time for all manner of adventures!

Be Open, with AfterShokz

Discover Speck’s new accessories, print your own GrabTab and drop a phone from 4m at IFA 2019

Taking protection to the next level

Speck’s entire line of Presidio® cases will now feature a higher level of drop protection up to 4 metres, without adding any bulk to the case design. Speck is also integrating Microban antimicrobial protection into all Presidio cases*. Microban is the global leader in antimicrobial technology, and when integrated into Speck cases, it’s proven to give a 99.99% reduction in bacteria and keep phone cases cleaner.

To show off the new level of drop protection, guests will be able to drop a Speck-protected Samsung Galaxy S10 down a 4-metres high chute and watch to see how that small fortune is protected. Guests will learn more about Speck’s materials testing and methodologies, including Microban antimicrobial technology and how their EPA approved science allows for lifetime product protection against stain and odor causing bacteria.

Visitors will also be invited to customise and print a GrabTab grip accessory. One of the designs is in partnership with Global Coalition on Youth Mental Health, a non-profit organization that works with leading mental health organizations, communities, and individuals to spread awareness, collaboration, and action. Speck will also be taking the opportunity at IFA to help support the organization by accepting any-and-all donations to this cause.

Innovative Accessories

Speck will be showing two new accessory products: LootLock, a stick-on wallet for smartphones and Presidio for AirPods, a one-piece, hard-shell protective case that’s built to keep AirPods safe from damage.

LootLock is a super-slim stick-on wallet for smartphones that gives users a more secure way to hold up to 3 cards or cash. It has a durable, no-stretch casing that was built for security. The hard-shell case won’t ever loosen, and even if you drop LootLock, your cash and cards will stay. For total security, LootLock’s storage casing flips over & snaps back into place to completely conceal cards, cash, or ID.

Presidio for AirPods is a rugged and durable outer-shell guards AirPods from drops, scratches, and daily wear-and-tear. The secure latch feature avoids users from losing their expensive headphones while keeping out dust, dirt, and debris. For additional user-friendliness, an aluminum carabiner allows users to clip Presidio to their belt, backpack, or purse for maximum mobility when on-the-go.

Matrix Industries unveils PowerWatch, the only smartwatch you’ll ever need

Ever wanted a smartwatch to fit your active lifestyle, without the hassle of running out of power? The PowerWatch solves that problem by being the only watch on the market that never needs charging. Launching the Series 2 at IFA this year, Matrix Industries builds upon the proprietary thermoelectric technology from the original PowerWatch, and adds a new solar cell as an additional method of charging. With these two energy harvesting methods embedded in the watch, manual charging is a thing of the past.

With an increase in power comes a more complete and full-featured active smartwatch. Users can track their calories more accurately than with any other watch on the market, use GPS, monitor heart rate, track their sleep, receive push notifications on a full colour screen, and more.

While PowerWatch comes with a dramatic increase in available energy, the team were able to further miniaturize the thermoelectric and solar cell processes, enabling a reduction in the overall weight and size of the watch. It remains as rugged as ever, with an industry-leading ability to withstand pressures down to 200 metres when diving. Available to purchase from September 2019, for more information, please visit https://www.powerwatch.com/, and keep an eye out for news at ShowStoppers.


Bold and Beautiful in Berlin: Dell’s New Consumer PC Portfolio Unveiled at IFA 2019

By Ray Wah, Senior Vice President, Consumer and Small Business Product Group, Dell

We’re back in the thick of European conference season. From Gamescom in Cologne to IFA 2019 in Berlin, Dell Technologies has exciting news coming out of both shows!

IFA is the largest consumer tech show in Europe and we expect to see significant news from 4K and OLED TVs to wearables to smartphones. We’ll be showcasing our latest PCs, of course, as the move to thin and light continues across the industry. It’s not only about smaller form factors though – consumers want adaptive, always connected, high-performing, and flawlessly designed PCs and Dell continues to set the bar for the PC industry.

Ahead of IFA, we’re expanding our consumer portfolio with brand new form factors and the addition of new 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors to our current XPS and Inspiron portfolio delivering performance gains needed for compute intensive, demanding multi-thread workloads, while still handling 4K content efficiently. And in doing so, giving our customers heavyweight performance in thin, light and portable designs — the best of both worlds.

We’ve taken our most beloved and awarded product, the XPS 13, or “the best laptop you can buy,” and made it even better. Available 27th August, we’ve added Intel 10th Gen Core™ U series processors — with i7 hexacore models available in October — in our existing beautiful form factor, helping the XPS 13 maintain its position as the most powerful 13-inch laptop in its class1. Whether you’re a binge watcher or the busy mobile pro on the go, we’ve created the XPS 13 to be one of a kind. With the new Killer™ AX1650 (2×2) built on Intel WiFi 6 Chipset, wireless connectivity is three times as fast as the previous generation. Along with Dell CinemaColour and Dolby Vision and an optional 4K Ultra HD InfinityEdge display, the XPS 13 will remain eye candy for those glued to their screen. Available with either Windows 10 or Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, the latter which serves as the foundation of the XPS 13 developer edition, now in its 9th generation2.

And in case you missed it, the XPS 13 2-in-1, a COMPUTEX d&i Award winner, is now available for purchase. This 2-in-1 is a symbol of our meticulous attention to detail where every decision was driven by customer benefits and a mission to achieve a flawless design. The 2-in-1 is the world’s first Project Athena-verified laptop available with Intel’s new 10th Gen Core™, 10-nanometer silicon processors.

Vayyar Sensor Technology Developed in Israel Can Save Lives Inside The Home

An advanced new imaging technology developed by Vayyar uses radio waves to detect emergency situations and call for help.

Senior citizens living alone can experience falls, serious health problems and a deterioration in physical state, with no one around to respond. Situations like this require immediate medical help. Current monitoring solutions such as cameras, invade privacy and create a sense of discomfort in the home. Wearables and fall alert wristbands make many users feel self conscious, and old, and can be ineffective if the user forgets or refuses to wear them.

Vayyar, based in Israel, is bringing its revolutionary product to European partners. The company’s sensors use radio wave technology to create a 4D real-time image that tracks, displays and evaluates everything that happens in the home or care facility. Vayyar’s technology immediately and automatically notifies a designated caregiver or emergency responders in the event of a fall and identifies deterioration in health and breathing patterns.

Vayyar’s technology also offers a breakthrough solution for professional medical and assisted living facilities by preventing and detecting falls. Patients in hospitals and nursing homes can be monitored without cameras, to ensure their privacy is respected. In addition, Vayyar’s fall detection tracks vitals and behavior patterns to help determine if a patient’s health is showing signs of deterioration. This information can be used for pre-emptive predicting and alerting of patients exhibiting early stage signs of being at risk of falls or injuries. With this technology in hand, significant stress is relieved from nursing and medical staff, while enhancing the security and safety of the facility.

This smart home solution also detects irregular activity in the house, offering perimeter protection and intruder alerts. In the event of a fire, the new sensors are able to inform emergency responders of the location and condition of occupants. Learn more at www.vayyar.com

Vayyar (from the Hebrew term: “to see”) was founded as an imaging company in 2011, when they developed a fast and cost-effective method to detect early-stage breast cancer. Since then, their mission has been to make advanced imaging devices available to the general public. Visit Vayyar at IFA’s ShowStoppers, in Hall 25, Booth 244.
