EBV IoT Hero Award Ceremony 2018 Munich

End of January the finalists of the Innovation World Cup 2017/18 Series pitched their solutions on stage at the official Innovation World Cup® Pitch and Award Ceremony at the Wearable Technology Conference in Munich. For the first time the EBV IoT Hero was awarded. Promising start-ups were among the finalist, but like in every competition, there can only be one winner.
The selection criteria were demanding: Level of innovation, time-to-market, and commercial potential, technological feasibility, marketing approach and requested investments. After all, it was not only about a lot of money but also a lot of attention for the startups. The EBV IoT Hero got a special prize of 10.000 Euro cash. Reason enough for the techpreneurs that submitted their solutions (almost 940!) to hustle. In the end a company prevailed that developed a smart product for everybody’s home.

And the winner is...

The Vienna based company Luke Roberts developed the world’s first truly smart lamp and the device really is an all-rounder. You can create your own list of favourite light settings and animated dynamic light scenes. Furthermore you can use it as an alarm and get woken up by light. With a smartphone app, which connects to the lamp via a Bluetooth low energy wireless connection, there’s the possibility to move the light where you need it. This is being realized by directional lighting technology.

Luke Roberts smart lamp is not just a lamp but a high-tech system that allows people to adjust the light to their personal tastes easily controlled on a smartphone. Times are over when you need a variety of lamps to illuminate the different corners of a room. Read more about the Smart Design Lamp on our EBV Blog!
