Data Spectacles Create Rosy Tint

April 15, 2013

BERLIN, April 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

At this year’s CeBit, Fraunhofer COMEDD’s interactive data glasses were talk of the
town.

Awarded the Mittelstand Initiative Prize for Innovation, the glasses are straight out
of a sci-fi film. They react to eyeball movement and display information on a microscopic
screen in front of the eyes, while you can also watch the world at large.

Trivisio, a company from Germany’s Mittelstand – the small to medium-sized enterprises
at the core of Germany’s economic development – was heavily involved in the design.
Another Mittelstand company operating in the Organic Light Emitting Diode market, Novaled,
is subject to rumours of investment or takeover from either Samsung or Korean giant
Doosan.

That’s two companies from the same cluster near Dresden, reminding the world of the
Mittelstand’s capacity for innovation.

Appropriately, the 2013 Printed Electronics Europe expo will start in Berlin on April
17, just a couple of hundred kilometres from that ‘Organic Electronics Saxony’ cluster.

Germany Trade and Invest, the country’s foreign investment promotion agency, will be
at Printed Electronics 2013 to explain the myriad of innovations pouring forth from
Germany’s organic electronics industry.

“Organic Electronics Saxony is the biggest dedicated organic electronics cluster in
the world,” said Max Milbredt, Manager of Electronics and Microtechnologies at Germany
Trade & Invest.

“The whole value chain for organic electronics is there, with all companies able to
network and innovate together.”

Germany Trade & Invest CEO Dr. Benno Bunse pointed out the source of the innovation.

“Once again, it falls to a small German company to produce a potentially revolutionary
innovation,” he said.

“Germany’s Mittelstand leads the way in innovation and creativity, creating many
opportunities for industries at large.”

Germany Trade & Invest is the foreign trade and inward investment promotion agency of
the Federal Republic of Germany. The organization advises foreign companies looking to
expand their business activities in the German market. It provides information on foreign
trade to German companies that seek to enter foreign markets.
