Ynvisible, Evonik and Epishine showcase self-powered smart signage solution
Ynvisible Interactive Inc. (Vancouver, Canada), Creavis (the strategic innovation unit of Evonik Industries AG which is based in Essen, Germany), and Epishine AB, a leader in OPV light harvesting devices, have announced the creation of a joint demonstrator. It features TAeTTOOz printed battery from Evonik, Epishine's solarcells, and Ynvisible's electrochromic display.
All technologies can be printed, and when they are assembled, they can create self-powered signage, functional packaging or device solutions. The joint demonstrator will be featured at LOPEC, TechBlick and on the partner's individual communications channels.
“Our new demonstrator is a clear evolution on our journey with Ynvisible, started in May 2020. We are demonstrating the potential use-cases and advantages of this combined solution – energy independence, scale-able manufacturing and design freedom," commented Dr Michael Korell, head of new growth area Energy Storage at Evonik.
“Epishine's light energy harvesting cells have unique efficiency at indoor light conditions and enable small connected electronics, like electronic shelf labels, without the burden of costly battery maintenance. This collaboration is also an important opportunity to highlight the unique material properties of our thin and flexible printed solar cell,” said Jesper Nilsson, head of solutions, Epishine.
"Most active electronic devices need a visual interface and a power supply. Our joint demonstrator makes rechargeability, modularity and a dynamic user experience reality," says Michael Robinson, CEO of Ynvisible."We're proud to showcase how our partners' technologies can come together to deliver holistic and value-added solutions – truly a Display PLUS."
Ynvisible, Evonik, and Epishine will host a joint webinar on 8 April to delve deeper into the details of the Self-Powered Smart Signage Solution and provide a broader idea on what the three technologies will enable. Follow this link to participate in an interactive webinar.
