Projects in Demonstrator Lab

Since 2017, many students and researchers have successfully used Demonstrator Lab to develop their ideas to maturity. This has led to the establishment of new companies offering new products and services. We present you an overview of the current participating projects below.

Universities
AMC UvA VU

MolTour

Mobile molecular visualization for the future of educators and researchers Molecules are three dimensional, blackboards and projectors are two dimensional. We aim to help educators and researchers visualize molecules in three dimensions by visualizing the structures in VR, all from the convenience of their mobile device.

Myndful

Virtual Reality based therapy for alcohol users using biofeedback technology anywhere and anytime. Myndful is a virtual reality (VR) application to help people with substance use problems. Myndful combines VR, evidence-based psychological therapy, and biofeedback technology. Myndful’s tailor-made program trains users to gain skills to manage their addiction. With biofeedback technology, users can observe their […]

PreActive

The health solution for home and office workers As home-based work becomes part of the new normal, people will be more exposed to work-related injury risk factors – namely physical inactivity and poor workstation setups. If left unmanaged, the resultant rise in work-related injuries could be devastating for both companies and individuals. PreActive challenges these […]

QV Technologies

The voice-enabled ordering interface The majority of waiting time in the service industry consists of the time before a customer’s desire is processed. Besides resulting in lower order frequencies, this fosters a feeling of degraded service. We believe there is no more natural and intuitive way to automate order processing than by utilizing speech. So […]

Respira

Breath sensors for pre-symptomatic disease detection We are developing a non-invasive breath sensor for cows, for the early detection of illnesses well before observable symptoms. With automated and continuous monitoring, this would enable timely and precise feed adjustments by farmers to stop sickness progression. The technology is derived from extremely sensitive laser-based techniques enabling the […]

S2S-AI

Climate change is affecting extreme weather – we identify how and when society is at risk Seasonal to sub-seasonal (S2S) predictability could provide societies with valuable information on weather-related risk, allowing decision-makers to initiate early warning action plans and to optimize resource management. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), we are developing a rigorous data-driven framework that […]

SALT

The starting point for better leadership Organizations invest a lot of time and money in recruiting, developing, and promoting the best managers. Key stakeholders understand the challenges faced by managers in different roles but often differ in their views on the leadership style best suited to face these challenges. SALT is a simple, efficient tool […]

Sonoptic

AI-based, wearable visual aid technology 1 in 30 Europeans suffers from visual impairment, and 75% of them are unemployed. Taking the form of a pair of glasses, Sonoptic is an AI based solution helps the visually impaired at work, at home and in education by providing three key features: Object identification – to help find […]

SoundTomics

Three dimensional reconstructions of skeletal muscles

SPUN – Society for the Protection of Underground Networks

We protect unique underground ecosystems in the face of rapid environmental change Beneath our feet, fungi complex underground networks of that regulate the earth’s climate and ecosystems. These hidden networks power the world’s soil, and act as a huge sink for atmospheric carbon. But these biomes are being rapidly destroyed: fires, pollutions, deforestation are killing […]
