Garage48 Hardware & Arts 2016 is the bomb! Literally. The teams are having fun, although we have nearly 150 participants working on 20 various prototypes from building a tea machine, gene testing machine for students, smart doorbell, infusion heater to a smart bubble helmet to wear fashionably on the head.
The teams today started with the first checkpoint to give feedback of their brainstorm outcome to now actually building the products. Our partners, such as Mooncascade, Rohde&Schwarz, Eccom, Skeleton Technologies, Hedgehog and Elisa have provided us with invaluable know-how, equipment and mentors. The most popular room today has been without question the lab, where DigiLab guys from University of Tartu have been guiding the teams non-stop.

On the battlefield, when you’re fatigued and under the stress, the last thing on your mind would be how many bullets you have left in your magazine…
But if you run out-of-ammo when you are under attack - you may die! If your brother-in-arms next to you, protecting your flanks runs out of ammo – You both may die. Team in G48 is building a prototype for a device that counts how many bullets there are left in your cartridge magazine and displays the number on a screen.
This is a first step for introducing a new aspect to modern warfare by working on this new system. Solution which in future not only will inform single gun operator about his ammunition status, but as well will be capable to inform units commanding officers about dangerous situations on the battlefield based on ammunition usage per time, and overall status of ammunition left.

Saving the lives of people who have lost a lot of blood in cold environments. It’s a small lightweight heater at the end of the infusion line, just before the cannula. The point is warming up the fluid that goes into the body to avoid hypothermia. For first responders, military medics and ambulance services who don’t have a way to keep their fluids warm.
