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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
