RespiceSME Video Pitch Contest Results

RespiceSME is proud to present the outcome of the RespiceSME Video Pitch contest.

French start-up ADOK has convinced the jury, proposing a novel technology with which any surface can be turned into a tactile screen. We think this is a very exciting solution with tremendous potential the world should know about.

We are proud to announce ADOK as the winner of the RespiceSME Video Pitch contest. 

RespiceSME Video Pitch results

We were excited to watch so many inspiring video pitches, showing very interesting photonics solutions and products of innovative companies from throughout Europe.

Altogether we received 23 entries which have been evaluated by the RespiceSME jury, a panel of six representatives from the photonics clusters and business support organizations involved in the project.  The evaluation criteria included the following aspects: 1) innovativeness, 2) novelty, 3) a technology readiness level, 4) the commercialization potential and 5) the completeness of the video presentation.  It was certainly not an easy task for us to select the most innovative idea out of many great and promising pitches.

After a thorough assessment of each video on basis of the evaluation criteria we found the pitch of ADOK, a French Start-up, to stand out in particular.

‘GetADOK’ is an innovative product which turns any surface into a tactile screen, easy to use with a great precision and low latency experience. This allows users to create engaging experience around digital content; for example in customer facing business, such as bank agencies or car dealers or in any constraints environments where screens cannot be used easily.

We believe that the product ‘GetADOK’ will generate interest from the market and therefore should be promoted through a professional video, sponsored by RespiceSME.

However, all videos received in the contest feature interesting technology solutions, which show the manifold and versatile applications of photonics in Manufacturing and many other sectors. They definitely deserve attention, not only from the photonics community! We are proud to share these videos here:
