cany – the device to monitor and control your home – resulted from a partnership between eteleon, Pipesbox, and an MPD team. It is a solution to the common problem of parents worrying about their children; did they make it home from school? Did they forget to call or were they kidnapped? cany is based on a Raspberry Pi and features a 180° wide angle full HD camera, a motion detector, and two-way audio. It’s simple, expandable, personal, and provides you with peace of mind that all is well at home when you can’t be there.

Quanto is an advanced access management system for hotels, embedded in a greater digital framework that offers hotel guests a fully digitalized stay. Quanto is a physical lock that opens neatly with only a touch of a finger that offers hotel guests an online check-in and allows them to order room service or report issues to the management. It is integrated with the resourceful architecture of QIVICON, Telekom’s smart home platform.

The TeleClinic journey began as a partnership with former CDTM student and co-founder of Stylight, Max-Josef Meier, and PD Dr. med. Reinhard Meier. The goal: to develop a telemedicine product with an effective go-to-market strategy. TeleClinic developed an online health care system, which offers excellent health consultation from both general practitioners and specialists, everywhere and anytime, specifically for ex-patriots abroad with their employers.

MINIBlink’s objective was to develop a smartwatch application for the MOTO360 for a daily use case, which interacts with the latest MINI Cooper model and generates customer insights. As most MINI drivers are female family members, they decided to focus on the family case with the potential to bring the concept to company car pools or even car sharing services in the future. MINIBlink lets you create locations of interest for you and your social group and add car data, such as the fuel level or occupied seats, to a location.

Freeletics 2.0 focuses on the Three Tiers of Motivation. In the first tier there is a strong emphasis on extrinsic motivation. Athletes are rewarded medals that are personalized and contextual for their fitness achievements. The Second Tier facilitates the transition to intrinsic motivation by awarding fewer medals and instead pushing personalized Challenges to the Athlete on top of their normal workouts. To complete the transformation from extrinsic to intrinsic motivation the Third Tier allows users to create their own Challenges and share them with friends or other members of the Freeletics community to compete against and motivate other Athletes.
