For some years, Greiner Technology & Innovation has been present at the renowned Ars Electronica Festival in Linz. Since 1979 Ars Electronica Center runs this amazing festival which focus on the interlinkages between art, technology and society.
In the year 2019 we took a step further an decided to become ourselves exhibitors. The attendant’s profile to the festival ranges from artist, social thinkers, children, the scientific and academic community, just to mention a few. This colorful spectrum of public makes the festival a great opportunity to get meaningful feedback and to discuss our visions in a bright manner.
Our exhibition was called “Polytronics: a smart symbiosis of plastics and electronics”. There, we showcased 5 different mockups, which are products manufactured by Greiner that in combination with electronic components, have the potential to sense and act according to inputs gathered from their environment. These new features allow the communication between products, systems and devices, providing an enhanced user experience that goes beyond the phisicality of the product itself.
Even Austrian President Van der Bellen visited our stand!
