Pixium Vision is developing innovative Bionic Vision Restoration Systems (VRS), which are active implantable medical devices intended to treat blindness resulting from the degeneration of retinal photoreceptor cells. These devices are intended for blind patients whose optic nerve remain functional. The Bionic VRS are built around three components: • An implantable part (the retinal implant) that contains electrodes • A portable visual interface (goggles with a camera and a data transmission system) • A pocket processor.

THE WORLD'S FIRST ROBOTIC KITCHEN Moley has created the world's first robotic kitchen. Featuring an advanced, fully functional robot integrated into a beautifully designed, professional kitchen, it cooks with the skill and flair of a master chef. The prototype was premiered to widespread acclaim at Hanover Messe, the international robotics show. The consumer version set for launch in 2019 will be supported by an iTunes' style library of recipes. RECIPE LIBRARY The Moley Robotic Kitchen is revolutionary for more than its automated cooking; it is also an iTunes-style library with a growing collection of recipes from around the world. Initially it starts with a plate of ingredients, eventually the system will be accessed anywhere remotely, with a delicious meal awaiting your arrival home! 3D recipe recording will open up an exciting new world for celebrity chefs and home cooks. Cooking professionals and owners will be able to present their creations to a huge new audience, with the potential to generate revenue through recipe sales globally

Vest Exoskeleton (VEX)
Hyundai develops VEX wearable exoskeleton vest to alleviate the burden of overhead work.
Hyundai Motor Group has developed new Vest EXoskeleton (VEX), a wearable robot created to assist industrial workers who spend long hours working in overhead environments. The VEX enhances productivity and reduces fatigue of industrial workers by imitating the movement of human joints to boost load support and mobility. The wearable vest the polycentric axis – combining multiple pivot points with multi-link muscular assistance – to function, eliminating the need for a battery. “VEX gives workers greater load support, mobility, and adaptability when operating in overhead environments,” stated DongJin Hyun, head of Robotics team of Hyundai Motor Group. “Workers will also appreciate how light VEX is to wear and work with.” The newly-developed VEX is targeted at production-line workers whose job is primarily overhead, such as those bolting the underside of vehicles, fitting brake tubes, and attaching exhausts. The development of the VEX included a pilot program in two Hyundai Motor Group plants in the US. The trial was widely successful in assisting workers and boosting productivity and both plants incorporated VEX systems in their production lines.
