Our daily usage of connected objects, smartphones and other watches requires more and more energy, some studies show that there will be more than 50 billions of connected objects in 2020. The scale factor makes everyday a new challenge for the network to provide this overload of energy.
We are living in a world of light, the photovoltaic energy is available everywhere in the planet, being energy self-sufficient for our electronics is for all of us the really wireless world!
Your product can be covered of cutting-edge photovoltaic cells to power any sensors and or IoT. Taking advantage of the natural or artificial lighting, you collect energy wherever you are in the planet. Either it can supply directly your electronics, or it’s stored in battery.
Dracula Technologies Startup is developing a disruptive printable solar energy, called Layer®
It’s an OPV cell manufacturing technique made of 5 nano-layers of materials using digital printing: in the same way that an office printer uses graphic ink to print, we print our LAYER® modules using conductive ink that we have formulated ourselves thanks to:
As a result of several years of R&D Dracula Technologies has developed a support process using tools to evaluate the energy consumption and the lighting conditions. We then carry out studies in order to optimize the solution needed.
Dracula Technologie’s know-how is the result of a collaboration of over 10 years with the industrialists, HUTCHINSON and research centers (CEA-INES, CNRS, IM2NP, CiNaM, CSEM). Our development engineers work closely with our scientific committee that includes academics and industrialists.
Dracula Technologies carries the French Tech in the Alps, BPI Excellence, InnoEnergy, Dassault Systems and Airbus labels. Our technology has led to several patents and relies on the mastery of an OPV cell manufacturing process using digital printing which traps light both outdoors and indoors.
An alternative to the drifts of the programmed obsolescence. L’increvable is the idea of changing the way we design and consume products. Let’s take the example of a product you can find in quite every house: the washing machine. A washing machine average cost is 350€. It decreased across time, but the repair cost of the washing machine increased by 125% the last 20 years.
Each musician cultivates his art in order to be unique and singular. Its aesthetic sound constitutes its identity. So how to create an instrument specific to each artist? How to influence the sound identity of the instrument? How to industrialize custom-made?
Laurent Bernadac is an INSA Toulouse engineer, and a virtuoso musician as well (Gold Medal at the Conservatoire de Toulouse, Jazz Guitar & Violin Section). Laurent had a challenge: design an electric violin which wouldn't weigh more than a classic, wooden acoustic one. After several trials, he found the solution: a 3D Printed Violin. He named his concept 3DVarius.
The construction industry needs a digital revolution. Even though it is the world´s biggest employer, the industry has been posting profitability losses for over three decades.
Have you been in a situation where a generic treatment did not work very well for you or someone you know? Have you ever had that nagging feeling that maybe the doctor (as good as he or she may be) should really be treating YOU rather than a generalized representation of you?
Hunting for asteroids just became more accessible thanks to Open Space Agency's (OSA) Ultrascope, an automated robotic observatory that anyone can fabricate using a 3D printer. Budding astronomers receive, for as little as 750 USD, a starter kit containing the necessary components and the 3D models to print the chassis along with instructions to assemble the components together.
With studies estimating the annual number of deaths due to medical errors in the hundreds of thousands, the time has come to revise the way the medical profession gains knowledge and experience. Advances in 3D printing technology and virtual simulation are creating new opportunities to improve the quality of treatments and patient safety.
Civilian drones have been around for years offering people the opportunity to do what they cannot normally do from the ground. Aerial photography, rescue missions, agricultural monitoring, air pollution watch, and even the all new drone racing. Two types of drones are mainly used today. They are helicopter-like machines and airplane-like machines.
