Cutting-edge technologies displayed at innovation week
A nano material-featured display caught the eye at the innovation week event held in Shanghai.
Eagleall, a Shanghai-based startup, exhibited transparent display technology based on nanometer material.
Compared with traditional LED, the technology features energy efficiency and transparency, which can be used by the taxi, sharing cars and commercial realty industries, said Rick Yang, marketing director of Eagleall.
“The new display technology may change both the advertising and car industries, covering self-driving in future,” Yang said. His company has cooperated with BAIC Motor, Changan and Haibo Taxi to adopt the technology, initially in Shanghai.
Also during the 2017 National Mass Innovation and Entrepreneurship Week, telecommunications and chip firms displayed latest technologies on 5G, which offers 20 to 50 times the speed of current 4G technology.
Shanghai-based Transcom Instruments developed a professional testing device for 5G networks, which can shorten 5G test preparation within “several minutes,” compared with half an hour at present. Shanghai-based Spreadtrum also displayed self-developed chips.
Co-working space is another topic covered at the event. Shanghai has about 500 innovation spaces, covering 380,000 startup entrepreneurs.
“People now not only need an office, but an all-in-one innovation space,” said Zhang Jian, chief executive of Nashwork, which operates 700,000 square meter co-working spaces in five cities nationwide.
Compared with overseas giants like Wework, local firms can offer customized services like cloud computing, company register and upgraded independent office, Zhang added.
