Quirky start-ups have 15 seconds to pitch their ideasWe asked start-ups at the 4 Years From Now show in Barcelona to pitch their ideas on camera, in just 15 seconds or less. Check it out.
[SOUND] We're here at four years from now in Barcelona in this room which is positively bristling with crazy ideas and potentially world-changing innovations. We're asking these [UNKNOWN] to explain those ideas in just 15 seconds. So what is your company, and what does it do? Go. Hi. This is Cubus Games, and we create interactive adventures to play with culture. We mix two zero adventure styled stories with cultural heritage. That was only 13 seconds. Very concise. Sorry? [LAUGHS] Our company is called Oia oasis intelligence assistance so we have designed a device that helps you stay focused and hydrated at work regardless of the state. It's connected to an app and then the internet uplink. Well we are Anyline a mobile tech recognition company and what we do is we teach smart phones how to read. What is your start up and what does it do? Go. Okay, our start up creates interactive paper toys for kids to learn programming. Like you see here, Tommy Bot, we're on Kickstarter right now. And you can skin it with paper characters that stick the robot with magnets. Two seconds left. Whoo. [NOISE] Go. Hi we are Dora Project from Moscow and we are doing [INAUDIBLE] radiometers for detecting radiation and preventing health risks. [NOISE] That was blisteringly quick. We're What3Words. We have labelled every three meter square in the world with a unique three word address. Like Hazel Chest Spoon points to one three meter square in the world. We've done that for everywhere in the world, 57 trillion squares. [SOUND] Wow. That's pretty neat. [LAUGH] Go. The Weenect provides GPS trackers to secure your loved ones. So your family, it could be your kids, your parents, and also your pets. And so you can locate at any time from anywhere, the position, the location of your loved ones, and also they can contact- [SOUND] That's 15 seconds. Okay, thank you. We aim to create an electric bicycle with lithium batteries that can be refilled and control the road and everything with an iPhone. Am I right on time? You've got a few seconds left if you want to add anything else. That's fine, I went as fast as I could, so [LAUGH] That's all we have time for, but for much more tech, check out cnet.com/nwc.
