Siemens at IdeaPark - Youth issue of Magazine

13.08.2012
Siemens will offer visitors a special look at its "idea incubator" during the IdeaPark event, which will take place in Essen from August 11 to 23, 2012. The IdeaPark, which was established by ThyssenKrupp, presents technology to visitors via hands-on exhibits.
To coincide with the exhibition, "Pictures of the Future" will publish a special youth issue in German language targeted at readers aged 14 and up. Professionals from various technical fields will offer insights into their daily experiences, and readers will also learn about exciting future trends.

Siemens will contribute 25 exhibits to the IdeaPark. They will cover everything from state-of-the-art mobility solutions to studies of living cells, new developments in environmental technology, the presentation of historical milestones, and experiments with the energy supply systems of the future.


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.

Im Focus: Spray drying the precision particle under the virtual magnifying glass

Spray drying is a common manufacturing process, used in the production of ceramic granulate for technical components or dental prostheses as well as dissolvable medicinal substances, food additives and in the processing of milk into powder. Using computer simulation methodology developed by scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Mechanics of Materials IWM, a more comprehensible understanding can now be gained of the behavior of particles in solvent during the spray drying process. This allows powder and granulate manufacturers to specifically adjust the properties of their products while reducing waste.

Previously, it was unusual for granule and powder producers to use granulation simulations to improve their products. For new product development or process...

Im Focus: The random raman laser: A new light source for the microcosmos

Texas A&M University researchers demonstrate how a narrow-band strobe light source for speckle-free imaging has the potential to reveal microscopic forms of life

In modern microscope imaging techniques, lasers are used as light sources because they can deliver fast pulsed and extremely high-intensity radiation to a...

Im Focus: Erosion, landslides and monsoon across the Himalaya

Scientists from Nepal, Switzerland and Germany was now able to show how erosion processes caused by the monsoon are mirrored in the sediment load of a river crossing the Himalaya.

In these days, it was again tragically demonstrated that the Himalayas are one of the most active geodynamic regions of the world. Landslides belong to the...

Im Focus: Through the galaxy by taxi - The Dream Chaser Space Utility Vehicle

A world-class prime systems integrator and electronic systems provider known for its rapid, innovative, and agile technology solutions, Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) is currently developing a new space transportation system called the Dream Chaser.

The ultimate aim is to construct a multi-mission-capable space utility vehicle, while accelerating the overall development process for this critical capability...
