Workshop Event Showcases our Energy Harvesting Research11th February 2013
Our project on 'Holistic Energy Harvseting' has now come to an end, and we held a workshop at Imperial College London on 11 February 2013 to showcase the project's demonstrators and research findings.

Attendees found out about the project's objectives and achievements, following by an interactive showcase of the project's demonstrators and research outputs. A particular emphasis of the event was giving attendees the opportunity to interact with the project's researchers and academics. In the afternoon, a series of technical seminars discussed various areas of the research in more depth. The day was designed to give attendees the flexibility to either drop-in for the project overview and demonstrations, or to come for the full day and get the full holistic experience!
The three-year project 'Next-Generation Energy Harvesting Electronics: Holistic Approach' was funded by the EPSRC In 2009, and involved over 25 researchers at four universities (the University of Southampton, Newcastle University, Imperial College, and the University of Bristol) in partnership with four industrial companies (Dialog Semiconductor, Diodes Incorporated, ARM, and Mentor Graphics). The research joined together different research fields, including energy harvesting and MEMS processing, efficient power-conversion electronics, low-power embedded computing systems, simulation and electronic design automation.

Press Coverage for Tactile Devices in Rehabilitation14th November 2011
Our research on tactile devices for stroke rehabilitation has already received a fantastic amount of press coverage and public interest.
Some of this has been reported elsewhere on this webpage (for example our appearances in BBC radio and the 'FAST' government report), but a selection of the online coverage that it received (at least that which I have spotted) is listed below:

I Begin to trial DejaView!17th July 2012
Today I got my own DejaView device to start to wear, play with, improve (and fix the bugs)! While we've had working devices and a working system for many months now, up until now any devices that we have had have been used by the rest of the research team and our clinicial collaborators in London.
Some of the photos from my first two days of wearing DejaView can be seen in the image:
