Unlocking innovation from research by finding the perfect match for new collaborations between academia and industry

IN-PART is an online matchmaking platform which connects academia and industry to establish new partnerships that help to get ideas out of the lab and onto the market. Through proactive outreach informed by smart matchmaking algorithms, we’re able to connect the specific interests of R&D teams to the most relevant innovations being developed by academic researchers around the world. When a company signals interest in a project, we organise an introduction to the person at the institute responsible for it. And with that, our job’s done! IN-PART is free for companies and we don’t take a cut of any collaborations that result from the platform.  https://in-part.com/blog

Pain-free device to assist diabetics

Nanophotonics expert, Professor Xiaoke Yi is leading a team of medical and engineering researchers at the University of Sydney’s School of Electrical and Information Engineering to develop the breath ketone analyser. The device aims to help people with type 1 diabetes to detect and manage life-threatening ketoacidosis which occurs due to the liver producing high levels of ketones in response to low insulin levels. Professor Yi says that the process to use the device will be as simple as roadside breath testing, where blood ketone levels can be calculated by measuring the concentration of acetone in a patient’s breath. Yi’s team are working on a more compact and low-cost solution into the future. | https://www.createdigital.org.au/australian-engineer-develops-pain-free-device-diabetics-monitor-health/

A mural painted by drones

Four drones equipped with paint cans worked over a 12-hour period to paint this mural. Each drone was operating as part of a whole, with multiple position monitoring systems making sure they didn’t accidentally bump into one another. Each color layer was laid on separately, representing a different aspect of the community the project is trying to highlight. https://techcrunch.com/2019/07/05/this-drone-swarm-spray-painted-a-jumbo-size-graffiti-mural/

External liquid cooler for desktop computer

The standard fan cooler used inside computers takes too much space thus limiting insertion of better hardware. One of the methods used to improve computer performance is to use a liquid cooler to prevent overheating. Most current liquid coolers are placed internally, however there is the potential for leaking and extra noise. Our team has designed an external liquid cooling system which means more space for hardware in the computer while avoiding damage caused by leaking. Our cooling system  increases the efficiency and security of the CPU.

‘Thank you beep’ for friendlier driving

Dear Car Manufacturers, Every vehicle has a horn – usually used to express anger, frustration or as an alert of danger. Sometimes these have a purpose. But the car horn as it currently exists does not do a good job of saying ‘thank you’. Please invent an additional car horn that allows you to say thanks. A friendlier, more pleasant sound – to be used when someone lets you in, gives way to you, backs up for you or lets you have a car space you’re both after. At night, it’s hard to see whether someone gives you a wave of thanks, but a ‘thank you’ beep would do the job. It can also be a goodnight beep for when you’re leaving a friend’s place. Something that doesn’t annoy the neighbours. Let there be lots of thank you beeps and less angry beeps on our roads!
