    We don’t make sunlight – we just make it better.
    Plants need sunlight to grow but not all of the available sunlight is needed. Our product uses nanotechnology to enhance the incoming sunlight and optimise it for plant growth. We convert the unwanted light into the ideal light. Our technology allows farms to speed up the growing process, shortening the time to harvest and increasing the productivity of the land.

    okara

    Food Science & Technology, NUS

    Principal Investigator: Assoc Prof. Liu Shao Quan
    Team Members: Vong Weng Chan, Sophie Liu

    Soymilk and tofu are a common part of the Asian diet, yet what consumers don’t see is okara, the soybean pulp that remains after filtering the soymilk. Okara has limited use in food products due to its undesirable taste and nutrition profile. Using natural biocatalysts, we improved the composition and taste of okara. The biotransformed okara can now be upcycled and re-integrated into the food chain, providing business opportunities and sustainable solutions for the food industry.

    Sachi (咲智) is a new alcoholic beverage, made from tofu whey and has a light and refreshing sake-like flavour profile that is poised to create a completely new drink category. This product development has 2 objectives: first to create a novel alcoholic beverage and second to provide a solution to tofu manufacturers to cope with their tofu whey generation problem and to provide them with an extra product line for their company.

    mantadriod

    Department of Mechanical Engineering, NUS

    Principal Investigator: Assoc Prof Chew Chee Meng
    Team Members: Dr Soheil Arastehfar, Gunawan

    MantaDroid, the brainchild of RayVolution, was developed as an alternative to traditional propeller-based thrusters used by autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). The robot has a wingspan of 63.4 cm and body length of 35.0 cm. It weighs about 0.7 kg and can carry a payload of up to 0.8 kg. MantaDroid can be used for underwater inspection tasks, as well as for collection of hydrographic data, serving the maritime industry and environmental agencies.

    Team Members: Shalinda Adikari, Koh Yoet Siang, Nur Ain Bte Mohamed Khalid

    Today’s marketers and brands are increasingly optimistic and opportunistic in the digital space. The Ad eco-system has shifted heavily towards the digital landscape. AdFort has conducted primary and secondary research into today’s advertising ecosystem through a 10 week industry validation. The team uncovered key issues and validated assumptions right through the digital advertising value chain. Surprisingly, Ad fraud is not a top point but the ability to precisly target the user with highly relevant messages at the right time is.

    EBN

    School of Chemistry and Life Science, Nanyang Poly

    Principal Investigator: Dr Subramaniam Gurusamy
    Team Members: Dr Cherine Tan, William How, Lee Foon Yee, Florence Teoh, Nilar Zhang

    Our vision is to equip the traders of edible bird nest and end consumers of bird nest with an accessible device that can authenticate edible bird nest (EBN) with ease and speed. Our invention relates to a method of authenticating EBN using a patented spectral imaging technology. This rapid and non-destructive method was deployed for the first time to distinguish between authentic, fake and adulterated EBN samples.
