Plantalámparas — a lamp that runs on plant power and lights the small village of Nuevo Saposoa. During photosynthesis, the plant's waste decomposes in the soil, producing electrons during oxidation. The UTEC team captures these electrons by using electrodes in the soil and storing it in batteries. This process can light the LED bulbs for up to two hours.

The free "Public Speaking" app for Google Cardboard from the London start-up VirtualSpeech lets people use virtual reality simulations to overcome their fears of speaking in public. At the beginning, users can choose between two scenarios – a small conference room with just a few participants and a large auditorium. The animated audience members behave quite naturally, while ambient noise simulates the experience of public speaking.
