A “Best of Innovation” award winner in the Health & Wellness category, the TestNPass is a digital “test strip” powered by and connected to the smartphone. After a test, it turns into a personal and secure RFID pass. First used to detect antigens caused by Covid-19 virus infection in body fluids, TestNPass provides a secure, biometric health pass in less than 5 minutes. It doesn’t need trained medical staff to operate it, making it an ideal option for rapid and repeated screening in high traffic areas and large venues such as airports, stadium, concert and exhibition halls.
A “Best of Innovation” award winner in the Smart Cities category, the VideowindoW converts entire glass façades into huge transparent video screens.

By merging experience with comfort, and also supporting sustainability initiatives, VideowindoW creates a whole new segment. Already installed in airports, they provide an instant return by reducing a building’s carbon footprint and bringing in ad revenue.
