Prosthesis – The Anti-Robot
Not an exoskeleton per se, but more like a direct waldo driven walker. Intended for some kind of human amplified racing?

KTH | Making waves with new gear technology
The cascade gear drivetrain that converts linear to rotary movement is kinda interesting. Though for a point absorber, it's probably the difference between a hydraulic pump's valving breaking, and this one grinding it's pinion gear teeth.

Interesting wave energy power generator design, using linkable modules. Similar to pelamis, but all the hydraulic piston stuff is done underwater it seems.

Det virtuella tangentbordet kan snart bli verklighet | Mälardalens högskola
Unconventional virtual keyboard, requires an AR system like Google Glass to see the keyboard, and the bracelets provide the finger and gesture tracking (actual tracking, like a bluetooth motion sensor). I could swear I've seen those bracelets before on a crowdfunding campaign...

Interesting AR eyeglasses concept. Basically, expand the traditional tracking capabilities of AR headgear. In this case, a Kinect type sensor mounted above otherwise conventional see through HMD glasses. Though if the Leap Motion trackers live up to the hype, I would think they might be a better alternative to capturing user hand gestures for AR GUI controls.

Wave Engine Solutions - AngelList
Some pictures to show how it works. Uses a linear conrod motion to drive a roller bearing, which forces a barrel with a wave cutout to generate rotary motion. Kinda interesting, but the wear life of the conrod T-bar is going to be key.

LEAP Motion
Initially people thought it may be using a time-of-flight image sensor to do the 3D mapping, but someone said, the current state-of-the-art (and heavily patented) systems only allow centimeter scale motion accuracy. There guys claim millimeter scale, so maybe they have a new unpatented trick? But it seems they might have let slip that they actually just use two normal image sensors, a UV/IR dot pattern projector, and UV filter glass.

So apparently these guys are behind the hot open source python based robot arm motion control/planning software OpenRAVE right now in industry. They do it all, from individual arm movement, to workspace layout optimization, to multi arm coordination, all to cut down manufacturing time, and the time to reconfigure a line. Apparently they also provide the optimization as a cloud based service, where you can get them to run hardcore layout optimization simulation much faster at a fraction of the cost.

Seems to be research solar thermal energy conversion to direct mechanical forces via thermally triggered shape memory alloy linear and rotary actuators. Applications are for reciprocating pumps in rural areas, so that covers both water pumping and refrigerator compressors.

GREEN MOTION: electric, fossil free, marine drive, and propulsion system
Basically a motor/generator electric prop drive. On a multihull, you can potentially sail fast enough to generate a fair amount of power (3KW recovered at 8 knots from a 10KW rated drive). Coupled with a diesel generator, good batteries, and solar panels, you can go almost fuel free.

This has interesting applications outside the ship cargo lift arena, such as automating load control in convential land cranes in windy environments. Maybe applicable to helicopter slung loads too?

These guys make an iPhone app called PhotoSpeak where you upload a portrait picture and it will animate it so that you can have the picture speaking/lip syncing with text being read. I think.

Good concept, but no mention of wireless bands in use (wifi interference? bluetooth being used?), and no local data dumps (all data must at least go through their server before it may be possible to scrape the data from the site). Which makes a bit of sense that the website is free (at the cost of giving statistical data to the company for later sales to marketing companies). Open format here with local dumps would have put them at risk of getting outpaced by a knockoff that is compatible.
