At LOPEC 2022, the Innovation Showcase will again be one of the special highlights of the trade show. Here, fascinating prototypes and cutting-edge product innovations will be on display and presented and explained by specialists. The daily tours on the focus topics Smart Living and Mobility also pass by the Innovation Showcase. The dates of the tours and the introductory lectures can be found in the program overview of the LOPEC Forum.
An absolute eye-catcher will be the BMW iX Flow concept car, whose body color changes at the touch of a button—thanks to technology familiar from e-book readers.
Medical technology is also using printed electronics, as demonstrated U.S. company InkSpace Imaging at the LOPEC Innovation Showcase with an innovation for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Until now, patients have been shoved into a tube for imaging.
But the approach doesn't match the anatomy of all patients. So the company has developed a type of blanket with printed MRI coils that conforms to the shape of the body. In December, the company received FDA approval for its “Pediatric Body Array,” which revolutionizes MRI scanning for infants and babies.
In addition to other exhibits from the automotive and medical technology sectors, the Innovation Showcase will also feature new developments from the sports and leisure sector. One example is skis with integrated sensors from the Austrian company Atomic.
You will find the Innovation Showcase in Hall B0 Booth 405.
The BMW iX Flow will have its own appearance in the ICM Foyer Booth FO.123.
