The really disruptive news is that only six are European based, and those are located two each in Switzerland, Germany and Netherlands.
ABB, Zürich, Switzerland. “Perfecting a circuit breaker for high-voltage DC lines—a crucial step for widespread use of renewable energy.”
Audi, Ingolstadt, Germany. “Pushing autonomous cars closer to fruition with a laser-scanning road detector that fits in a vehicle’s front grille.”
Novartis, Basel, Switzerland. “Developing a continuous drug-manufacturing process that could combine compounds quickly and in novel ways.”
Philips Amsterdam, Netherlands “Making efficient LED light bulbs affordable and more useful. One new bulb can be controlled by phones and tablets.”
Siemens Munich, Germany “Developing batteries and wind technologies that will be crucial in Germany’s plan to rely more heavily on renewable power.”
uniQure Amsterdam, Netherlands “Restoring the promise of gene therapy. Dutch company has approval to treat a rare metabolic disorder.”
Well as we're looking at an MIT study, and we don't make the disruptive grade, Gaberlunzie went to look at World Whisky Day. We should surely be able to be disruptive over that?
Or perhaps we should just enjoy ourselves at some Museums and music? Gaberlunzie's taken a fancy the USA Smithsonian as very cool with its Art of Video Games. He was sent a link to experience a blast from technology's past and visit The Museum of Endangered Sounds and picked up on an app that lets you change the musical instruement.
Last but not least, he's celebrating the OG joke!!
