Event Details

Startup Events OC, the same collaboration of tech focused organizations

who brought you Google Glass On The Spot is back in July for . . .

Demos & Cocktails - Summer Edition

C'mon down to Tapas by John Wayne Airport in OC for awesome tapas, tasty sangrias, demos & conversations with Orange County's combined communities of innovators, geeks, founders and startup folks.

The highlight of this event is the opportunity to be inspired by some companies from Orange County and surrounding metropolitan areas, comprised of your peers, showcasing software & hardware products in the mobile, web, green, social entrepreneurship, M2M & robotics spaces.  

As an added bonus, 106 Miles Co-founders Adam Rifkin and Joyce Park are in town from NorCal. Come meet them and learn about current trends in and around Silicon Valley. 

Here is a partial list of showcasing companies: 

Aaron Thomen has many interests including microelectronics and mechanical

engineering.  He is always questioning the limits of possibility, which is why he set

out to build a capable robotic hand for as little money as possible.  He used parts

from the hardware store and ordinary hand tools to build a robotic hand with

strength and dexterity, for less than $200.

Here is an article / video of the project by Mashable:

In 2010, we surpassed 1 billion cars in operation on earth.

Replacing windshield wipers  on those cars amounts to 1,000,000,000 pounds of

waste heading to the landfills around the globe. As well, the excessive amounts of

energy and materials to manufacture these wipers needs to be explored.

Imagine a simple Green solution that breaks this cycle of waste.  This new device

called WiperSwyper refreshes windshield wiper blades to provide environmental

benefits on many levels. 


Sourced and manufactured locally for a low carbon footprint, it is made from

recycled material, and is specially designed for postal delivery without plastic

packaging. Being fast and easy to use, this device provides an enticing option to

shift some of our paradigms, and slow the vicious cycle of waste in order to better

protect our environment.




The cover of June's Wired Magazine states: "In our houses, cars, and factories, we're


surrounded by tiny, intelligent devices that capture data about how we live and what we


do.  Now they are beginning to talk to one another. Soon we'll be able to choreograph


them to respond to our needs, solve our problems, even save our lives." 

 
See the "Internet of Things" in action as Oval Integration brings their contest entry that

took them into the Top Ten of the:



We all have incredible potential to be better, to be great. The problem is that for many

of us, our lack of knowledge about ourselves and our bodies holds us back. One Aura

is the first in a new-generation of mobile applications that lives up to the dream that the

Quantified Self movement has laid the foundation for. One Aura lets you know how

your current activity is affecting your body as-it-happens. Choose to improve life-

expectancy, train for endurance or strength, or to burn fat not carbs. Using decades of

medical research and the latest in wearable biosensor integration, One Aura lets the

power be yours. 


Use tech not talk to engage employees and bottom line results!!

What is so important about having an engaged workforce? Engaged employees fuel

productivity, innovation, happiness, and new customers. They are absent less,

promote their company more, and increase the overall quality of their

work. Now imagine having all of the tools to create, measure and maintain that kind of

engaged workforce.  MyTeamStir helps you reward your employees with points,

badges and levels to create engagement and company cultures that last.
