Oral-B’s NEW AI-Brush Knows More About Brushing-Styles than Anyone on The Planet 

UNDER OFFICAL ECAP/EMBARGO UNTIL MONDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 8:00 AM CT 

The NEW Genius X has learned from thousands of brushing styles to perfect yours 

Oral-B, the innovation leader in connected brushing and Oral-Care, unveils at the MWC 2019 its breakthrough new Artificial Intelligence Brush Genius X, and presents its vision for the future, where intelligent dental & health management tools will lead to a longer, healthier life.

Oral-B continuously innovates every year to achieve its vision. This year, Oral-B makes a step further to more intelligent dental devices with the NEW Oral-B GENIUS X with Artificial Intelligence. It is Oral-B’s most advanced brush to date. Designed with dental professionals, it does something completely new: It combines the knowledge of thousands of human brushing behaviors to assess individual brushing styles and coach users to achieve better brushing habits. The AI technology tracks where people are actually brushing in their mouth and offers personalized feedback on the areas that require additional attention, for better oral health.  

Oral-B’s research with dentists has shown that innovation is successful when it is simple and easy to use. Genius X with AI tech works seamlessly, without having to change your brushing habits or style. It operates in the background. It is so unique because it has learned from thousands of different brushing styles: “Every patient is unique, that is why we are looking for solutions that adapt to the individual. Oral-B gives patients an excellent and personalized brushing experience, without having to change the way they brush to achieve their best oral health result. This makes it a real breakthrough”, says Prof. Dr. Ralf Rössler from the University for Digital Technologies in Dentistry & Medicine in Luxembourg. Genius X with Artificial Intelligence is the first step towards the future, where intelligent devices use data analytics and turn a dental device into the most important element in people’s everyday health routines. Attendees at MWC will be the first to experience Oral-B GENIUS X with Artificial Intelligence and the brand’s future vision.  For more information about Oral-B GENIUS X with Artificial Intelligence, visit https://oralb.com/en-us/geniusx.

Bitdefender BOX now available to connected homes in UK

Bitdefender BOX protects your smart home and family from hackers, thieves and spies

Bitdefender, a leading global cybersecurity company protecting over 500 million users worldwide, announces that Bitdefender BOX, its breakthrough IoT security innovation, is now available for purchase in the UK. 

Bitdefender BOX, the CES 2018 Innovation Award Honoree, offers complete protection from the growing wave of cybercrime. It simply plugs into your router to protect all internet-connected devices, from Wi-Fi printers to security cameras to smart thermostats, laptops, phones, smart TVs and anything that connects to the internet. 

Security hub for the connected home

Bitdefender BOX, designed with award-winning multi-layered security at its core, is easily manageable on a mobile device through the Bitdefender Central app. BOX immediately detects any new device that connects to a network and notifies the user, who can then alter permissions for the device if needed. 

Bitdefender BOX comes with a Safe Browsing feature that blocks malicious URLs so users steer clear of phishing and online fraud. At the same time, Vulnerability Assessment scans non-stop for flaws in the user’s network security, while Advanced Parental Controls filters out content that is inappropriate for children and manages kids’ access to the internet. BOX also ensures no sensitive data is sent without encryption, thanks to Sensitive Data Protection.

Malicious activity is blocked by Anomaly Detection, which determines how devices behave under normal circumstances and catches irregularities. Exploit Prevention stops hackers from exploiting vulnerabilities in your network and Brute Force Protection keeps them from taking over your devices. 

For greater convenience, owners can control Bitdefender BOX and receive status updates about their protected devices via Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa through a simple list of voice commands, such as: “Alexa ask Bitdefender: Do I have vulnerable devices in my network” or “OK, Google, ask Bitdefender to run a scan on my laptop.”

Techno-Labo Co. Ltd. provides the platform for industrial designers to create plastic parts with low volume

As the market of IoT devices expands, the needs of plastic parts are increasing as well. Plastic cases are the most important factor to add value and usability to the products. However, most H/W startups have troubles to make their plastic parts because it is tough to control all the process of development and the initial costs are too expensive due to manufacturing mold.

To solve the problems on plastic parts, Techno-Labo provides the platform that automatically provides you with the total cost of development by filling in the sizes and production quantity. It also integrates all the necessary processes from design to assembling the product. This platform accelerates the creation of unprecedented products by supporting industrial designers and H/W startups.

At ShowStoppers, we will showcase the prototype of the platform and the methods we design and manufacture plastic cases. Not only the samples but also the mold will be exhibited. We will also attend at Hall M8 Stand L3.6 of 4YFN.

Hopper is changing the way you’ll book your next vacation, in the US and beyond

Hopper, the leader in mobile-only travel booking, announced that this year it will begin the process of internationalization in earnest on the back of a recent $100 million USD financing round. Currently available in 126 countries – and the #1 travel app in over 37 of them – Hopper enjoyed significant international traction in 2018 and plans to accelerate that growth in key markets this year, with 25% of ticket sales already originating outside of the United States. Early yet significant product improvements, such as the inclusion of nearly 50 low-cost carriers in Europe, have led to pronounced growth in the region, with sales up 154% YoY. International expansion priorities include language, currency, and pricing localization.

In 2018, Hopper scaled its hotels offering from 1 beta market to 30 top markets with 6,000 hotels. Later this year as Hopper continues its international push, it will be possible to book accommodation in-app in nearly every city worldwide. Hopper also passed $1B in sales in 2018 and has been downloaded over 35M times. More than 95M trips have been planned in the app to-date, and over 150,000 new trip watches are being added every day.

Watch Hopper’s CEO and Co-Founder, Frederic Lalonde, on the Banco Sabadell Keynote Stage at Mobile World Congress 4YFN this Wednesday, February 27 at 4:40 PM, where he will discuss the future state of travel as the world continues its shift to mobile.

Nanusens increases battery life of earbuds by up to 20%

Nanusens shrink MEMS to create nano-sensors within the CMOS layers

Nanusens, the pioneer of sensors built inside CMOS, has announced that its proprietary technology can significantly increase the operational life of earbuds by up to 20%. This can be achieved by replacing the MEMS sensors in an earbud with a single multi-sensor chip solution that is up to ten times smaller, freeing up space for larger batteries.

A MEMS (Micro Electro Mechanical Systems) sensor package contains a chip with the MEMS sensor, which is made on the microscopic scale, and a chip with the control electronics resulting in a volume of four cubic millimetres. Nanusens creates its sensors on the nanoscale within the layers of its CMOS chip that also has the control electronics. As a result, the NEMS (Nano Electro Mechanical Systems) chip is only one cubic millimetre so this will create a saving of three cubic millimetres for every MEMS package that it replaces.

The more MEMS packages are replaced and their functions done by a multi-sensor Nanusens chip, the greater the space savings. Plus the Nanusens chip only increases slightly with every additional sensor function to accommodate additional control electronics. In addition, far less PCB estate is needed for the tiny, single chip solution compared to the PCB estate required for several MEMS packages. All this freed-up space can be used to increase the size of the battery or add a supercapacitor to extend the battery life to give a better user experience and longer audio on the go™.
