At the joint Fraunhofer booth B36 in hall 9, you can experience a completely new method how to learn an instrument and how nearly invisible loudspeakers produce convincing sound. At the Connected Living stand (hall 19, C20) visitors see how to support children's learning by movement.
The Institute presents the project »Songs2See« at the Fraunhofer stand in hall 9 (B36) showing an approach to learning to play music instruments that is totally new. For this, the concept of wellknown music-based video games is extended. Instead of game controllers, real instruments are used as input devices.
Using this software, any title from the own song collection can be used to practice. This way, learning motivation is being kept up and you can finally choose to practice songs that you really like.
A nearly invisible but well audible exhibit are the flat speakers of the Ilmenau research lab. They are used in the exhibit “Together despite the distance” displayed by the Fraunhofer IIS from Erlangen. With housings only 2,4 cm deep, these speakers create a remarkable sound quality – even if mounted directly to walls or integrated in furniture. This sound quality has been impossible with flat speakers so far.
Is there something like a useful combination of learning and moving? The concept “HOPSCOTCH” accomplishes exactly that. With the aid of software, children are encouraged to solve tasks by hopping on a dance mat. Exercises are visualized on a display, e.g. english vocabulary checks and the matching solutions. This way, children can do their homework in a totally different way and have fun at the same time. Fraunhofer IDMT presents HOPSCOTCH at the Connected Living stand (hall 19, C20) in the “family” area and at the AOK booth. Here, visitors can answer questions on health topics hopping.

Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
