EPFL startup merges the real and virtual worlds
EPFL startup CREAL has developed a new technology that brings real-life detail and depth to the virtual world. Its image projection system helps to avoid the nausea experienced by most users of existing technologies. The startup raised 7.3 million Swiss francs in funding in 2019, and its prototype devices have attracted interest from a number of major industry players.
Practical technologies for the global South
The Tech4Dev program connects EPFL researchers with NGOs in order to develop technologies able to address specific needs in the global South and withstand local conditions. Four projects have been awarded grants following the first call for proposals.
