People were blown away by how the GlocalMe did not require the insertion of a SIM card and provides Internet access in over 60 countries. There is no cost if the device is not used, so there is no pressure for those operating rental businesses. Naturally, the endeavor was quite a success and before long she teamed up with a few friends to open an online rental store. Business was brisk and within months the online store was visited by over 800 people a day. More coverage and being 20% cheaper to rent than other pocket Wi-Fi devices, the GlocalMe is a world apart from similar competing products. 

After three months, Yoyo opened another two online rental stores and now makes 100,000RMB a month. She is looking forward to opening another store and has also begun working with travel agencies in an effort to begin offline sales while also helping to better serve international travelers. The international travel market is growing and over 100 million people have traveled abroad in 2014. "GlocalMe Wi-Fi rental will make my millionaire dream come true and my advice to others is to seize every opportunity they can," she said.

Frost & Sullivan: 4-D Printing to Usher in Age of Low-Labor, Fast-Paced Product Manufacturing

-- The aerospace, defense, automotive and healthcare industries will lead in the adoption of this technology

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Four-dimensional (4-D) printing develops materials that alter their properties and behaviors based on external stimuli such as changes in temperature. This advanced technology is poised to have a disruptive effect in multiple industries. In the near future, 4-D printing will revolutionize the business landscape by printing objects ranging from human organs to parts used in the aerospace and automotive sectors.

New analysis from Frost & Sullivan, Advances in 4-D Printing, expects the aerospace, defense, automotive and healthcare industries to be the first to adopt 4-D printing technology after its commercialization. Other industries will follow suit as the technology matures.

For complimentary access to more information on this research, please visit: http://bit.ly/1z2zgxs.

"4-D printing, an extension of three-dimensional printing, is superior to conventional manufacturing techniques in terms of performance, efficiency and quality, and can create new products with increased capabilities," noted Technical Insights Research Analyst Jithendranath Rabindranath. "Unlike conventional manufacturing techniques, it facilitates self-assembly of materials required to manufacture parts and products, thereby speeding up the process and reducing the need for labor."

Much work remains for market participants, as 4-D printing technology is in an early stage of development. Rapid prototyping technology has not yet been widely tested for large-scale applications and physical object manufacturing, and thus the validity of 4-D printing technology for such implementation scenarios has not been clearly demonstrated.

As with any new technology, the initial implementation cost of 4-D printing is an adoption hurdle. In cases where companies are willing to make this investment, product prices tend to be high in order to recover costs incurred and maintain profitability levels in the face of modest production volumes.

"After a few years of mass commercialization, the cost of employing 4-D printing technology will decrease, prompting several companies across a wide range of industries to integrate this technology into their manufacturing systems," stated Rabindranath. "Uptake will also strengthen due to the positive funding environment, which encourages confederations, research laboratories, universities, startups and big market participants especially in North America to invest in R&D."

Advances in 4-D Printing, a part of the Technical Insights (http://www.technicalinsights.frost.com) subscription, offers insights on nine dimensions of 4-D printing technology: year of impact, market potential, global footprint, IP activity, funding, breadth of industries, impact on megatrend, potential points of convergence, and size of the innovation ecosystem. Further, this research service includes detailed technology analysis and industry trends evaluated following extensive interviews with market participants.

ATP Introduces advancedMLC (aMLC) Technology at Flash Memory Summit 2014

TAIPEI, July 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ATP, the leading manufacturer of embedded Flash and ruggedized SSD and DRAM modules, introduces its latest technology, advancedMLC, also known as "aMLC". Developed by ATP, aMLC is an advanced firmware technology uniquely implemented onto ATP's NAND Flash products to vastly improve the endurance and performance of these storage devices while using mainstream MLC NAND to provide the best cost effective solution for any read/write intensive applications. ATP will showcase this technology and related products at the Flash Memory Summit 2014 from August 5 to 7 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, booth# 516.

The Benchmarking of MLC, eMLC and aMLC
The Benchmarking of MLC, eMLC and aMLC

Endurance and performance are the two critical factors for a NAND Flash storage device to meet the demanding industrial operating requirements. However, system and product designers often have to make compromises to fulfill the necessary criteria due to the inherent high cost of SLC NAND Flash components. To address this requirement, ATP introduces aMLC technology by implementing its unique firmware to manipulate four states of MLC into two states, which dramatically widens the disturbance margins among NAND Flash cells. In addition, aMLC can provide more than 13x (40K P/E) higher endurance than traditional MLC NAND, with write performance close to SLC. As such, aMLC is best suited for any write intensive application requiring competitive Drive-Write-Per-Day over Cost (DWPD/Cost).

To learn more about ATP aMLC technology and its latest NAND Flash reliability solutions, ATP will deliver a presentation session on "Innovative Reliability NAND Flash Solution Selection and Configuration", on Thursday, August 7th, from 2:40-3:55PM at the Flash Memory Summit conference.

The ATP initial aMLC product lines include mSATA, SlimSATA, and 2.5" SSD, with others to follow. For further details contact your local ATP representatives, or email info@atpinc.com

3D Printing Helps Internet-enabled Wireless Headphone Design Win Award and Recognition

MINNEAPOLIS and REHOVOT, Israel, July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Stratasys Ltd. (Nasdaq: SSYS), a leading global provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, today announced that British product design house, Ignitec, has designed and manufactured a new generation of wireless headphones for  technology start-up and luxury goods company Audiowings, using its Stratasys Objet30 Pro 3D Printer.

Logo

Named after the company, Audiowings is a luxury audio headphone that synchronizes directly with online music services, such as Spotify, enabling users to listen to their favorite music on-the-go, without the burden of headphone cables. As well as featuring a built-in storage system, the device also connects wirelessly to the Internet using 3/4G or WiFi, giving users the ability to plug into YouTube and enjoy music from around the world.

In a bid to receive funding, the first fully 3D printed Audiowings prototype was entered into Sir Richard Branson's 'Pitch to Rich' 2014 competition. The company has since been awarded the 'People's Award', receiving a prestigious mentoring program from some of the world's leading business minds. Audiowings is currently finalizing its plans to enter the retail market.

"When we were first approached with the concept of Audiowings and briefed on its prototyping requirements, we instantly knew that 3D printing would be the answer," explains Ben Mazur, Director of Ignitec. "Our Stratasys Objet30 Pro 3D Printer was the obvious choice since it has the ability to produce products on demand that depict the accuracy and surface quality of injection molding."

Stratasys' PolyJet-based 3D printing technology features 16 micron accuracy, producing parts that combine high definition with a smooth surface finish, crucial in the development of high quality prototypes.

"Quality is paramount and is the driving force behind all of our projects," continues Mazur. "We printed the headphones in a durable rigid opaque grey material (VeroGrey), not only enabling us to perfect the look and feel, but also perform ergonomic testing with the user's comfortability -- always integral to this development."

Ignitec's move towards Stratasys' PolyJet 3D printing technology aimed to increase the precision of its prototype parts, as well as reduce its prototyping costs and development cycle times. Equipped with a Stratasys Objet30 Pro 3D Printer from UK reseller Stanford Marsh Group, the company has since seen a significant reduction in the time required to 3D print and hand-finish its prototypes parts.

"Since introducing Stratasys 3D printing into our work flow, we have cut our finishing time by more than 50% due to the reduction of support material removal required compared to our previous SLA system," explains Mazur. "We have also seen a surge in client interest due to the fact that we can now produce prototype parts with a short turnaround time, while retaining the highest quality and remaining cost effective. Being able to offer end-use parts prior to manufacturing is something which is very valuable to our clients and takes away a lot of risk and guess work."

Andy Middleton, Senior Vice President and General Manager EMEA at Stratasys, concludes: "In today's economy, product designers are under extreme pressure to take innovation and quickly turn it into a money-making product. Ignitec is a great example of how our PolyJet 3D printing technology is empowering these designers to deliver first class prototypes to their clients with the precision and detail of the final product. As such, product development processes are shortening and fantastic products like Audiowings are reaching the market faster than ever before."
