This virtual reality meditation kit runs on your brainwaves

Calling itself a ‘well-being tool’ and a ‘neuro-meditation device’, Heal-ium is a mix of VR, brain sensors and multimedia that are combined to combat stress and anxiety. A low profile headband called the brain-computer interface detects electrical activity in your brain, and a virtual reality headset immerses you in an experience driven by your biometrics. According to Heal-ium, as your brain moves towards a ‘state of positivity’, the brain-computer interface picks that up and takes the VR experience forward. Heal-ium claims to be the first to do this in the world.

Heal-ium

Heal-ium is the world’s first VR and AR channel controlled by
brainwaves, specifically the user’s positivity. Our kits can reduce stress
reactions in as little as four minutes. In two peer-reviewed Journals, Healium
has been shown to reduce moderate anxiety and increase feelings of
positivity.

This smart wallet will allow you trace it when lost

Ekster is a Netherlands based startup that offers smart wallets which come in the form of standard wallets or even phone cases and they all feature a mechanism to pop out your cards with a button, RFID blocking to prevent data theft (on RFID enabled credit cards), trackability via the TrackR Crowd GPS system and are powered by solar energy.

The TrackR Crowd GPS tracking is quite interesting as it relies on a form of P2P system that allows you to potentially locate your wallet even when out of Bluetooth range. Ekster claims that the tracker ‘card’ requires only 3 hours of light to last a month. Beyond functionality. they seem to have a variety of designs and claim that the wallets are ‘hand-crafted from the highest quality genuine leather available in Europe’.

Delhi based Trazor wants to replace your entire shaving kit with one device

Grooming products have seen something of a startup boom over the last few years. Startups like Harry’s and Dollar Shave Club, and more closer to home, Ustraa, have disrupted an industry dominated by legacy heavyweights for decades.

Delhi-based Trazor is working on an all-in-one trimmer and shaver that goes beyond typical ones as it combines both shaving gel and aftershave into the handle.

Two models are slated for the launch – Trazor Trim and Trazor Gel, and they claim both to be unisex with the ability to accept both men’s and women’s blades. They intend to launch a Kickstarter campaign soon. Keep an eye out for them!

Trazor

Trazor was born as a result of everything that could be fixed with the current wet-shaving systems. The inspiration came from a Swiss Army Knife kept side by side with a shaving razor.
Trazor is the first shaving system in India which serves both as a shaving gel and aftershave, into the handle.

Vawsum wants to help schools connect with parents & students

Vawsum is a Kolkata based startup that is attempting to bridge the gap between parents and teachers in schools. This is a problem that a number of companies in the West have made great headway on – apps like Remind and ClassDojo pioneered this space. In India, however, this space is still developing and the functionalities need to take into account certain unique cultural factors. Vawsum allows teachers to send updates to parents, but also allows students to send questions and receive answers. It has fee payment, attendance, and school bus tracking features built into the app/solution. 

Vawsum

Vawsum is an engagement application which helps different stakeholders of a school engage and collaborate with each other instantly. Using Vawsum, teachers can send instant updates to parents and students; students can get their doubts resolved, and schools can stay in touch with parents, teachers, students, alumni and admission seekers.

This Indian shoe startup uses natural renewable fiber: You stay warm in winters and cool in the summer !

Most innovations in India are usually geared towards lower price points, however here we have a startup that is focused on a premium product. Neeman’s is a shoe startup that is bringing  a distinctive style as well as a number of clever features for footwear together.

Made largely of Merino Wool, a ‘high-tech’ wool that enables breathability, prevents odour and can supposedly be worn without socks at all. Neeman’s is also touting the eco-friendly nature of the materials (recycled rubber along with plant based castor oil) used as well as the shoe’s apparent ability to stay warm in the winters and cool in the summer.

Neeman’s

Neeman’s is breaking the myth that wool is only a product of winters because it is bulky, heavy and itchy on the skin, by using a form of natural merino wool sourced from Australia which is superfine, lightweight, moisture-wicking, and breathable.

The Merino Wool fabric used by Neeman’s is developed in collaboration with Woolmark, the global authority of Australian wool. The timelessly elegant shoes are odor-resistant and sock-free, which keeps the skin cool and dry even in extreme temperatures.

A mobile app khata to track ‘udhaari’

Addressing the need of the unorganized lending sector in India for a digital ledger is ‘Khata Business’ – a SAAS mobile app that offers unlimited database space, bill storage and analytics. It also offers an app for non-business users to manage their credit at local stores and retailers. With cash transactions seemingly on the decline and digital wallets on the rise, it will be interesting to see how this space plays out.

Khata

Udhaar or Len Den is a way of life for almost 70% of Indians. Most spend their lives juggling with these microloans. Yet there is no or little transparency in these loans.

Khata is a digital version of traditional Bahi Khata or a Hisab Kitab Diary or a Ledger Book. Today the Len Den/ Udhar Jama system is very unorganized. On our platform creditor and debtor would have access to the same copy of Bahi Khata and all the details relevant to each of them would be visible on the platform. We want to make the whole process reliable and safe for both creditor and debtor.

Anil Kumble’s startup launches an AI-enabled cricket bat

Broadcasting has influenced cricket enormously over the past few decades. With the introduction of the ‘3rd Umpire’ in the early 90s (with Sachin Tendulkar being the first player given out via the medium!) for adjudicating run-outs, the intervention of technology in on-field ‘play’ had been legitimized. Hawkeye (which has also been exported to other sports such as tennis), Snicko and Hot-spot have become a veritable triumvirate that have fundamentally altered how cricket is played via the DRS system.

Now former India captain Anil Kumble, who is also a trained Engineer, has a startup called Spektacom Technologies which has launched a ‘Power Bat’ that is powered by Microsoft’s Azure Sphere cloud platform.

The technology works via a ‘sticker’ that is placed on the back of a player’s bat to record a variety of metrics with regards to a batsman’s performance that can add to the broadcast experience. Intel did something similar with a chip that capped the bat handle during the Champions Trophy 2017. Star India is already involved with the ‘Power Bat’, which means we are likely to see the implementation of this soon.

Meet: The Power Bat

The Power Bat is a unique concept whereby a lightweight, Azure Sphere-powered sticker is stuck on the shoulder of the bat — a form factor that is completely unobtrusive. In a live match, as soon as the batsman hits the ball, data on different parameters (speed on impact, twist on impact and quality of the shot — percentage proximity of the ball’s contact to the sweet spot of the willow) are captured in a new unit of measurement titled Power Speks.

Microsoft’s Azure Sphere ensures that the data is securely captured and processed. Using advanced analytics and AI services on Azure, real-time insights are captured through the stump box and displayed via the broadcaster. During practice or coaching, the same data can be viewed through a mobile app.
