Get to know the Spark $100k Challenge finalists - part 3

September 16, 2015

Last week we shared some background information on finalists NanoGene Biomedical Technologies, Green Spot / Not The End, and InSight Technologies. This week, we are pleased to share some more information about a further three teams:

CanaryEye – CanaryEye aims to improve water sustainability on farms by monitoring and detecting water leaks.

Resilient Slip Friction (RSF) joint – The invention aims to provide a cost-effective, damage-free structural connection system to dissipate earthquake energy. Thus allowing the structure to be occupied again with minimal business interruption and repair costs after severe events.

Surfeaz – Of the approximate 23 million surfers worldwide, it’s estimated 13 million will develop the preventable condition ‘surfers ear’ at some point. More than 80,000 surfers undergo surgery annually at a cost of $US861 million. Surfeaz’s biodegradable, in-ear device is aimed at helping to eliminate surfers ear and the need for surgery.

Tune in again next week to learn more about the finalists.
