Siemens has been one of the world's most innovative companies for 165 years. Its researchers and developers register some 40 inventions every working day. This has put Siemens at the top of the list in terms of the number of patent applications submitted to the European Patent Office in 2011.
One of the Siemens exhibits at the IdeaPark is the "Magic Mirror," which was created in cooperation with Technische Universität München. The mirror is actually a monitor that overlays images of the observer and a 3D data set from a computer tomography unit in a way that makes it seem as if the observer is looking inside him or herself. Visitors to the IdeaPark can also virtually operate an ICE3 high-speed train with a joystick in a simulated driver's cabin that looks exactly like the setup in the 11,000 hp train.
Several other Siemens exhibits on power generation, distribution, and storage point the way forward for Germany's energy revolution. These exhibits show that the individual components of an energy supply system - i.e. wind turbines, "electricity highways," and smart buildings - need to fit together precisely, like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, in order to create a smoothly functioning whole.
Electric cars will also be part of this future energy puzzle - vehicles such as the E-Buggy built by students in the work-study program at the Siemens Technical Academy in Berlin. Visitors to the IdeaPark will be invited to take a ride in the E-Buggy.

Transparent electronics devices are present in today’s thin film displays, solar cells, and touchscreens. The future will bring flexible versions of such devices. Their production requires printable materials that are transparent and remain highly conductive even when deformed. Researchers at INM – Leibniz Institute for New Materials have combined a new self-assembling nano ink with an imprint process to create flexible conductive grids with a resolution below one micrometer.
To print the grids, an ink of gold nanowires is applied to a substrate. A structured stamp is pressed on the substrate and forces the ink into a pattern. “The...
A new Fraunhofer MEVIS method conveys medical interrelationships quickly and intuitively with innovative visualization technology
On the monitor, a brain spins slowly and can be examined from every angle. Suddenly, some sections start glowing, first on the side and then the entire back of...
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Ames Laboratory have discovered an unusual property of purple bronze that may point to new ways to achieve high temperature superconductivity.
While studying purple bronze, a molybdenum oxide, researchers discovered an unconventional charge density wave on its surface.
Munich Physicists have developed a novel electron microscope that can visualize electromagnetic fields oscillating at frequencies of billions of cycles per second.
Temporally varying electromagnetic fields are the driving force behind the whole of electronics. Their polarities can change at mind-bogglingly fast rates, and...
Breakup of continents with two speed: Continents initially stretch very slowly along the future splitting zone, but then move apart very quickly before the onset of rupture. The final speed can be up to 20 times faster than in the first, slow extension phase.phases
Present-day continents were shaped hundreds of millions of years ago as the supercontinent Pangaea broke apart. Derived from Pangaea’s main fragments Gondwana...
