NanoLumens wins big US breakthrough tech award
June 16, 2011 by Dave Haynes
NanoLumens beat out some very impressive technologies – including Kinect – to win the Breakthrough Technology category for the American Technology Awards, described as the only national “Best Of” awards recognizing all technology products and services throughout the U.S.
Atlanta-based NanoLumens — which has gained a lot of attention and market traction for its lightweight, flexible displays — was selected as one of four finalists. The others include VQ OrthoCare for its BioniCare Knee System & OActive Brace, Microsoft for its Kinect gaming device and Agilyx for its Plastic to Fuel Process.
The awards were handed out last night.
The Termans – named after Frederick Terman, who was credited as being the father of Silicon Valley – are presented every year at TechAmerica Foundation’s Technology and Government Dinner.
Very well done guys. If you don’t know much about the company, it has flexible, lightweight LED displays that are being used by Digital OOH companies and in a lot of trade show applications. Think. Big visuals that don’t need a forklift and the sort of careful handling of a grand piano.
They are somewhere at InfoComm, in another booth, I think.
