The Swedish Institute’s exhibition AReality showcases some pioneering inventions that help improve living conditions on our vulnerable planet. Innovations that revolutionise the future are only visible using HoloLens technology, which are available to the visitors. Innovations from the past will be visible to the naked eye.
Some of the innovations showcased are Cellink, a bio-tech company that invented the revolutionary bio printer BIO X and the world’s first universal bio-ink, a hydrogel bio¬material mixed with human cells. Today, Cellink’s products are used by life science companies and bio-scientists. Tomorrow, bio-fabrication of organs and tissues may be standard medical practice. Another innovation is Orbital Systems, a shower system that saves up to 90 per cent in water usage. The concept was born at NASA, where Swedish engineer Mehrdad Mahdjoubi faced the task of finding a way of min-imizing water use during the planned three-year journey to Mars. His system instantly purifies the used water and sends it back up to the shower head, thereby saving up to 80 per cent of heating energy in the process. Invented for space, Orbital can make a huge impact on Earth by conserving our most precious resource – water.
The exhibition is curated by Salka Hallström Bornold and Bo Madestrand from Form, and has previously been on show at Design Shanghai in March 2017 and at Digital Enterprise Show (DES), Madrid, in May 2017.
