My note –

The video is the best but then I liked the music they picked and found the inventions from last year’s show fascinating. It would be great to get a copy of the last few catalogues along with this one.

There are more pictures and information about this year’s winners on the press page found along the left side menu.

Oh, yeah – and it was really great to see President Obama with President Sarkozy and PM Brown on the bridge over the Rhine this morning at 4:02 a.m. EDT as they crossed the bridge and handed over the NATO reigns to France’s President Sarkozy. CNNInternational cut into World Report to show it live – it was historic and absolutely amazing.

Salon international des inventions de Genève, dont la 37e édition témoigne de la vitalité du secteur

http://www.lemonde.fr/web/depeches/0,14-0,39-38918064@7-37,0.html

Son fondateur et président, Jean-Luc Vincent, reconnaît avoir perdu quelques exposants institutionnels frappés par la crise. Mais il note “un afflux d’inventeurs stimulés par l’urgence de trouver des solutions, en particulier dans le domaine de l’environnement, l’économie et la santé.”

This year’s winner –
Press release Embargo 3rd April 2009 – 7 p.m.


37th INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF INVENTIONS OF GENEVA :


THE GRAND PRIX TO AN AUTOMATED SCANNING LORRY


The Grand Prix of the 37th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva was awarded unanimously and with the congratulations of the Jury to the Romanian company MBTechnology, for its vehicle baptised ROBOSCAN which is capable of scanning large lorries and trailers with no human intervention. Designed especially for customs controls, it allows the operator to work without coming into contact with the radiation emitted by the scanner.
The back axle of the lorry is equipped with an articulated frame which adapts to the size of the vehicle to be controlled. Once it is parked in the right place, the driver leaves the vehicle and activates a remote control which organizes the movement of the mobile scanner. The ray can go through steel 18cm thick and show the whole cargo on the screens. The machine can even detect objects 4mm in size. Apart from its exceptional precision, the main advantage of this invention is the integral remote control of the scanner, which eliminates all danger for the operators. The machine weighs only 7.5 tonnes in comparison to the 20 tonnes already in use. The latter are encumbered with heavy sheets of lead which were necessary to protect the operator. The reduced weight of this lorry allows it to move faster, especially when it is needed by the police or other authorities.
The International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva rewarded 48 other especially deserving inventions among the 1’000 presented. It is still open in Hall 7 of Geneva Palexpo until Sunday, 5th April, at 6 p.m.
