ID 1981 / JUMPIN ON 100

The first teaching method that includes an integral approach of adopting the 100 square in a concrete way. Children learn about the 100 square step by step, while building their idea on numbers of up to 100. The first step is to learn how to read and search numbers in the 100 square correctly and fast. They learn to compare numbers with each other in size and to adopt the numerical series. In the second step, children use specific material to set numbers by using ones. At the same time they develop numerical ideas, learn what ten is, and understand the size ratio between one and ten. They use the acquired knowledge and set numbers by tens and ones. They use specific material to learn how to add and subtract numbers of up to 100, first without passing tens and then with passing them. In this context they display passage through tens on a specific level, which is essential for understanding of both mathematical operations. In the last step, they learn how to correctly write numbers with words with the material included.

ID 1991 / LEARNING ACCORDING TO THE AC METHOD- ACTIVE and CREATIVE

The AC method combines various innovative approaches of learning and teaching, enabling all children to learn in an easier, simpler and more efficient way the basic reading, writing and computation skills. By doing so, they improve their effectiveness and success in school. The AC method is based on the principle of learning without pen and paper. We offer children only some suitable material and teach them how to handle it. Children use material independently, being creative and active, which enhances their memory and speeds up their learning. This approach helps us encourage the natural development of children, as well as support and develop their potential. The method is appropriate for all children and is proven to give good results. All products are target-oriented. They help us practice and strengthen a specific skill. When using products according to the AC method, children are constantly actively involved in the learning process, discovering new knowledge and thereby developing.

ID 2151 / REC Active Battery Management System

Advanced lithium batteries which are substituting the traditional 12 V lead batteries offer more charging cycles, have better energy and power density and can deliver up to six times more energy for the same price in comparison to lead batteries.
The 12 V lithium battery pack is comprised of four series of connected cells. Additional electronics is required to protect each cell against overcharging, undercharging, over-heating, etc. The REC d.o.o. company has developed a high-tech solution for substituting the 12 V lead batteries with lithium cells – REC Active BMS. In addition to all the necessary protections, REC Active BMS is the first of its kind in the market with active cell charge balancing. Energy from cells with the highest charge level is transferred to cells with the lowest charge level in a very efficient way (no energy dissipation). REC Active BMS can be connected to a PC or an LCD touch display. A battery pack with our technology lasts longer, is more efficient and informs the user about its current state.

ID 2171 / SUBGLIDER

Subglider is a sports prop that makes underwater swimming, turning and performing of various acrobatics possible with the help of a boat. The underwater use makes this innovative product even more attractive. Before Subglider, underwater swimming, turning and performing of various acrobatics was not possible! Everyone can use Subglider, which is fun even for veterans of underwater sports. Since Subglider is used under the water, you have to be able to hold your breath and balance ear pressure. Subglider is made out of two symmetrical wing-shaped panels connected by means of a swivel joint. This allows the panels to rotate around the axis, and thereby the user to make turns under the water. By varying the inclination of the two panels we influence our movement and direction, and thus make sure that we get to the surface for a fresh supply of air to continuoue underwater movement.

ID 2501 / Dynamic vacuum solar system

The basic element of our dynamic vacuum solar system (DVSS) is the solar collector (SC). Flat vacuum collectors have a significantly better efficiency than flat solar collectors when it comes to greater differences between the ambient temperature and the temperature of the absorber. It can be used at working temperatures of up to 160 °C. The advantage over the vacuum tube collector is a large absorption surface compared to the overall surface of the collector. The entire surface of the collector is 4.294 m², while the absorber surface is 4,027m².
The largest advantage over all other solar systems is the regulation of thermal insulation, which ensures that the system never overheats.
The system has been in operation for two years. The results of the heat generated can be tracked on our website: http://www.dvss.si/kolektor.
During this period, we have acquired half of the energy needed for space heating and domestic hot water heating using our DVSS.

ID 2671 / Robotic vessel for detection and control of cyanobacteria

The over pollution of water can result in excessive growth of cyanobacteria also known as blue-green algae. When episodes of their excessive growth end with harmful effects like fish death or human and animal poisoning with water, they are referred as harmful cyanobacterial blooms. This points the need to find solutions for the early detection and prevention of their excessive growth and therefore preventing the release of cyanobacterial toxins. The robotic vessel has installed equipment for online measurement of water quality parameters with emphasis on detection and differentiation of algae and cyanobacteria. Data on the increased presence of cyanobacteria in the water activates a mechanism installed on the vessel, which inhibits their further proliferation. With the technological innovation, we can obtain much faster a comprehensive information on the state of the water body and perform localised inhibition of the growth of cyanobacteria, without adding chemicals or sediment forming substances.

ID 2821 / Environmentally friendly railway slippers

Railway sleepers are one of the oldest products of impregnated wood. So far, they have been impregnated with the environmentally-controversial creosote oil, which will be banned in the near future. Therefore we are looking for alternative solutions to protect wooden sleepers. Wooden sleepers have a number of advantages over concrete ones (lower carbon footprint, easier maintenance, less vibration, less noise, ...). They are made of beech wood, which is one of the most important EU species, and is under-utilised. The developed protection process ensures sleepers’ long life using local raw materials and the existing technology. The product is interesting both for the domestic market as well as for the whole EU where restrictions will be implemented as regards the use of creosote. The developed product has been tested for several years on a field appartaining to the Deptaprtment of Wood Science and Technology. Till now, the protected sleepers have successfully undergone the lengthy testing within a very demanding microenvironment.

ID 3101 / Meltum isocentric skis

The innovation Meltum Isocentric Skis represents a completely new, innovative and revolutionary ski concept developed for a new experience of skiing. Meltum Isocentric Skis are more responsive, more agile, easier to control and faster than the existing solutions. Their geometry decreases the forces on the skier’s body, thus reducing the chance of injuries and allowing a new, healthy and unique skiing experience. The core of innovation is the establishment of an isocentre – a changing centre of the turn dependent on the position of the skier’s gravity centre, ski loading and geometry of the terrain. Isocentre enables a natural and relaxed body movement. Skis’ inherent high natural frequency results in an excellent responsiveness and enables high-precision skiing. The applied force adjusts the skis’ oscillating frequency allowing the skier to accurately control his movement. Skis are the result of over 5-year development and testing inspired by the tradition of Slovenian ski building rooted in the Bloke region.

ID 3111 / Gold nanoparticles - the tool of the future

Gold nanoparticles are biologically non-reactive and have very good optical and chemical properties for biomedical applications. The basic raw material gold has corrosion resistance and excellent biocompatibility, which makes it particularly suitable for the manufacture of nanoparticles. Gold nanoparticles can be conjugated with peptides, drugs and other molecules on the surface, thus producing surprising effects. They can be used for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, bacterial infections, Alzheimer's and other diseases. This now represents the so-called experimental, high-quality, accurate and non-invasive methods for the diagnosis and treatment. However, before these tools are available in medicine, it will be necessary to research in detail their biocompatibility, and draft standards and health and safety legislation to ensure safe use for the benefit of patients. Some of this will be presented.

ID 3141 / SKICLICK

SKICLICK is an innovative gadget that helps us ski safer.
Skiing slopes are often full and skiers who often come too close to each other, especially because they are unaware of other skiers around them. Because of this, they easily make such turns that make them come too close to other skiers on the slope who in turn cannot inform them of their presence. Most often such close encounters ends with two skiers coming too close, but sometimes also with a collision and injuries.
SKICLICK is best used when the faster skier is catching up with another skier in front of him. At this point, the faster skier triggers SKICLICK, which emits a very recognisable sound that the slower skier can hear. The slower skier then determines how far that sound is and where it is coming from. Then he knows which direction he should not turn to avoid the faster skier behind. In this way, he avoids coming too close to the faster skier and diminishes the chance of collision and/or injuries.
SKICLICK is effective, durable, simple, maintenance-free, distinctive and cheap.

Health is an increasingly popular topic of smartphone applications. One of the most important things a person can do for his/her health is physical activity, which is why physical activity is often at the centre of health applications. The activity of the phone user also helps understand the user's context, which can be exploited by other applications (e.g., to select the best time to offer him/her a service). Therefore we developed a method which can use the movement of the phone and – optionally – other wearable devices to accurately recognise the user's activity and estimate its intensity, which can be expressed in calories. The method it available to mobile developers through an application programming interface (API), and can also work as a web service.

ID 3221 / MEDICALLY SHAPED ALUMINUM FRAMED XTREME OUTDOOR LOUNGER FROM GENUINE, HYDROPHOBIC LEATHER

The XTREME Outdoor Lounger presents a new, sleek approach to aluminium-framed upholstered outdoor furniture. The extraordinary leather is extremely resilient and uniquely crafted for outdoor use. XTREME leather boasts all-round protection, from the surface through the entire width to the back of the material. Furthermore, this protection is durable. Similar leathers in the market only have surface protection, which is non-durable.
Leather itself resists salt water, chlorine, suntan lotions and oils, mildew and insect repellents, but also provides antibacterial, antimicrobial and antiflame properties in accordance with hospitality industry standards.

The XTREME Outdoor aluminium frames have been engineered for all outdoor conditions: three times lighter than any steel, anti-rust and corrosion properties, heat resistant and recycle-friendly.

ID 3231 / AlpStories - personalised natural cosmetics

100 % natural cosmetics made for your skin only and manufactured by a robot.
With an innovative approach to creating a personalised product we adjust to each customer’s needs or enable customers to create their own product themselves.
The web portal invites customers to create a personalised product and design a lable before a robot mixes up the product.
The skin care industry has witnessed a shift from passive consumers to younger and more active consumers. These have a completely different understanding of and view on how they want to use and buy cosmetics. Young girls, for example, want to be IN, they develop their personal BRAND, they want to become trend-setters, they want their 5 minutes of fame.
With this in mind, we want to give customers the best tools and guidelines for creating a personalised product which fits their needs 100 %. In the backstage, we take care of the legal registration of the new product on the CPNP portal in accordance with the EU law.

ID 3291 / Handmade crochet cradle from local eco materials

I made the first such cradle for my son. Excited at how attractive and useful it was, I offered it on Etsy where I have already sold a couple.

The cradle is handmade from eco cotton and pristine Slovenian wood. It is suitable for babies of up to 6 months, who are still used to a small, constantly moving chamber (their mother's womb). Being soft and small, the cradle makes babies feel safe. Moreover, as soon as they awake, they can swing themselves to sleep again. The headrest can be raised to comfort a colicky baby.

The cradle is distinguished for its design, and is also washable, portable and changeable into a swing when overgrown. I made mine from my grandmother’s sheets and thus added emotional value. Customers will be able to order a personalised cradle with sheets made from their family heritage and bearing their family monogram, as well as several add-ons, which will increase the value added and usefulness.

The cradle is intended for metropolitan upper middle class mothers who want but the best for their babies and themselves, and are prepared to pay more for good quality.

ID 3401 / Activated biochar

Our innovation is a product called activated biochar. Char is made from wood using an environmentally-friendly technology (pyrolysis), and activated with natural substances. In the process of pyrolysis, wood is carbonized and receives its unique structure – pores. In these pores we bind nutrients from compost, beneficial microorganisms and minerals from rock powder. Activated biochar is a soil improver, as it raises the pH of acidic soils, increases water holding capacity, increases the number of beneficial microorganisms, enhances the humus balance and decreases the need for fertilisation. But it is not beneficial only for soil, it is also important for the climate. Biochar acts as a carbon sink and binds carbon in the soil, thereby acting as a counterbalance to greenhouse emissions. Plants (vegetables, fruit, herbs) growing in the soil enriched by activated biochar are very healthy, pest-resistant and highly nutrient-rich (vitamins, nutrients, fibres), thereby improving the health of people.

ID 3411 / Arc OTG charger

Arc OTG charger is a portable auxiliary power source for the mobile phone in the form of a small panel, at the same time being also a USB key with a memory of choice. It uses a small lithium battery to charge the mobile phone via a micro USB input. Arc is useful in cases when the phone is emptied and subsequently turned off, which can cause troubles, particularly if we are in the middle of work. The soluction is to connect Arc to the phone and to give it 33 % to 50 % of battery power, which allows for a couple of hours of additional operation. The green LED serves as an indicator of the state of the battery of Arc. When the light goes out, the battery is low and Arc must be recharged via the micro USB adapter or via the classic USB cable.
Due to its small size and a small hole Arc can be hooked on the keychain so as to be always available to the user when most needed.
