Loop | Simplify, Organize and Use Your Phone to Pay
Hrm, this seems to use a magnetic field projection device to trick magstripe readers into thinking they just read a magstripe (the data of which is stored elsewhere). Which is fine if the reader doesn't have a physical card detection sensor as part of it's mechanism (which I imagine most don't if it's an exposed swipe reader as that only adds cost)

ClearSign Combustion Corporation
Interesting combustor tech, that uses a high E field to manipulate flame ions, rather than trying to move to a plasma combustor and it's associated energy penalty. Marked as a means of normalizing the heat in a flame so you don't get hot spots that produce NOx or cold spots that have incomplete combustion.

Seems to detect movement within 6 inches of the antenna. So, something that moved really slowly, or stayed at a stable orientation, won't be detected, but it is good enough for basic gesture recognition. RF based, no cameras or ultrasound, suitable for embedded surfaces as an input source.

QBotix - Solar Powered by Robotics
Strange concept of a robot arm on what is essentially a cheap agricultural monorail track going around adjusting the tracking axis of solar panels in a solar panel field. The idea is the cost of the robot+monorail track+robot battery charge is cheaper than having tracking motors+electronics+power for every panel in a field, assuming the robot can service all the panels in a field in a timely manner.
