Ogenblik to participate at Cambridge Wireless Innovation Showcase

Creativeworks London Creative Entrepreneur in Resident (CEIR) Deborah Werbner’s project OliTool has been accepted as one of twenty teams to participate in the Cambridge Wireless Innovation Showcase. OliTool, the first product in development of Ogenblik Ltd, founded by Deborah and Lisa Erickson, is a digital haptic device and software system to promote psychological wellbeing. The CEIR project enabled Deborah to work with Professor Jonathan Freeman and design department colleagues at Goldsmiths, University of London, on user experience workshops and prototype development.

The Showcase is a partnership between Cambridge Wireless, the Knowledge Transfer Network and Intel and is supported by Cisco, Iotic Labs, MediaTek and uBlox. The hackcelerator leading up to the June 22 Showcase event at the Future of Wireless International Conference will give teams the opportunity to work with the participating companies to refine their IoT ideas, access new hardware solutions and make new business connections.
