At the Summit
Wideblue will showcase a number of different products including a personal medical device that very accurately measures a patient’s breathing pattern using a CO2 sensor and is useful with lung conditions such as asthma; and an advanced pipe scanner for use in the non destructive testing industry that combines a series of optical images with laser scanner and creates a mosaic model of the interior of the pipe.
Also on show will be the new Impossible l-1 consumer camera that is reinventing the Polaroid instant camera for the ‘selfie generation’, and is packed with some clever Wideblue technology and controlled by Bluetooth from a mobile phone.
