DRAPER, Utah, Jan. 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Flexpoint Sensor Systems, Inc. (FLXT) today announced various product development partners, and subsequently, the company enjoyed another remarkable Consumer Electronics Show, ("CES"), experience. According to Paul Sexauer, Flexpoint Vice President of Sales & Marketing, "The 2017 CES was all about Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality (VR/AR), robotics, wearables and IoT (Internet of Things) applications – all of which represent rapidly growing and highly targeted Flexpoint market segments. We are proud to be partnering with so many innovative and inventive product designers and commercially successful companies."
Some of the highlights:
South Korea-based Neofect and their Rapael Smart Glove System for medical rehabilitation was recognized as a 2017 Honoree award winner for innovation in the Health, Fitness and Biotech category. The system, featuring an array of Bend Sensors®, represents an advanced medical IoT application with current FDA approval and a growing global customer base of clinics, hospitals and, most recently, "out of clinic" patients who can leverage this platform at home. Show media coverage and product recognition includes CNN tech, Digital Trends, CNET, and numerous others.
ZeroUI continued its exhilarating rise to fame as an inventive robotics/toy kit manufacturer whose kit features a Bend Sensor® driven glove. A CES 2016 award winner, the Ziro™ stood out yet again at CES 2017. CBSNews acknowledged that "robots stole the show" this year with special mention going to Ziro by CSBSNews, CNET, and myriad others who brought distinction to Ziro™ and the company as a whole. Commercialization efforts are well underway and 2017 will be remembered as the successful production launch of this platform.
Netherlands-based Manus VR, whose design leverages the Bend Sensor®, is recognized by many as having developed the industry's finest and most advanced glove system. They were welcomed as a special partner/guest of a major consumer VR/AR hardware manufacturer into their private showcase to demonstrate the power of their VR/AR glove system integration. Peripherals such as the Manus glove system supporting the various VR/AR headset platforms, are of great interest to users as they try to "maximize the experience."
Sexauer further commented, "Besides these noteworthy partners, other companies currently developing technologies with the Bend Sensor® and on imminent paths to commercialization were also on display at this year's CES show further validating the effectiveness of our technology."
Flexpoint continues to regularly receive requests for Bend Sensors® for a wide array of consumer electronics applications. As previously announced, the company is actively expanding their global distribution to include resellers and distributors which cater to these and other market segments.
