StrongArm Ergoskeleton, V22 - StrongArm Technologies, Inc.

Product Design - Industry

- Winner

Whether you are moving boxes around the warehouse or moving packages for UPS, you know lifting is gruesome work. The V22 is a Self-Powered exoskeleton that makes lifting easier and safer. To make lifting safe, we started with the root of the problem, “the human body.” We created a technology that bolsters a worker’s musculoskeletal system making lifting more natural, safe and powerful. The V22 is the first precision lifting ErgoSkeleton in the world creating an entirely new category of safety equipment that enhances human performance. StrongArm passive ergoskeleton is a load redistribution device that increases strength, reduces fatigue, reduces injury and turns average workers into Industrial Athletes

FLIR ONE Thermal Imaging Device for the iPhone 5 and 5s - FLIR Systems, Inc.

Product Design - Industry


FLIR ONE™ is the first personal thermal imaging device to target mobile phone users. Designed specifically for the iPhone 5 and 5s, this sleek, lightweight chassis gives users the ability to detect and display a thermal world normally invisible to the unaided eye. Every object or living thing emits or reflects heat (infrared) energy. The revolutionary micro thermal camera built into FLIR ONE has a resolution of 80 x 60 pixels and can detect infrared energy up to a distance of 100 meters. FLIR ONE unlocks a host of practical applications for the consumer—from detecting energy leaks at home to scanning a dark sidewalk for personal safety. FLIR ONE also allows users to observe precise temperature differences to a fraction of a degree. Since visible light doesn’t affect the thermal world, FLIR ONE works the same in highly lit or totally dark environments—the thermal image is the same. Consumers can record live thermal images and video, and the free FLIR ONE MX APP makes it easy to share compelling images on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media channels. FLIR ONE will be available in late spring 2014 for a suggested retail price of $349 (USD).
