We Invent the future
In January, news came from Fremont of the latest acknowledgement for Royole, a young American industry in the forefront in technology. The Californian company has been named another CES 2017 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Fitness, Sports, and Biotech category for its Smart Cycling Backpack, and in Wearable Technology for the FlexPhone prototype.
An important milestone for the American company, but it certainly doesn’t come as a surprise: Royole has received similar awards for the innovative 3D virtual mobile theater device Moon.
Let’s take a closer look at these two little wonders of cutting-edge technology.
The Smart Cycling Backpack features an LED display grid inserted in the rear panel, and sensors for display control are inside the fabric. Cycling enthusiasts know all too well how important the biker’s correct signaling and lighting is to safety. Here, then, is the importance of integrated sensors which remove the need for external accessories to control the lighting, reducing the risk of damage or malfunctions of third party components. The Smart Cycling Backpack isn’t just practical and functional, it is also beautiful and compact, featuring a sleek and clean style.
This stylistic concept also fits perfectly in FlexPhone, the first smartphone prototype that incorporates a Royole full color flexible display. When rigid, the FlexPhone works like a normal smartphone, but in ‘flexible’ mode, it can be rolled up around your wrist. Just 6mm thick and weighing only 100 g, the FlexPhone features 3G connection and Android operating system.
Both products are small jewels of the technology industry of our age, and if we want, are a coherent expression of the Royole philosophy: “We don’t predict the future, we invent the future.”
