Motion Mounts Inc.
Zero Gravity Hand Held Surface Mount
Unlike some submissions that might start from scratch in terms of resources, this cost-effective solution applies Hook and Loop fastening that has been used for many years for applications in Zero Gravity. The Zero Gravity Hand Held Surface Mount enables two methods of mounting a tablet and other items in both zero gravity and normal environments back home such as the office. The patented ergonomics of this mount establishes both a handheld as well as a hands-free control position for tasks, and a “One Step” mounting process that has not been seen in today’s world of technology. Easy to use and manufacture with a low profile that can be employed under challenging positions ... this is a game changer.

SCV Electric Inc.
Frictionless Maglev Generator
Maglev technology is being used in many applications because we have learned that it produces kinetic energy more efficiently. Maglev is used for railguns, launching aircraft, space launching, CERN colliding particles at the speed of light, NASA’s Sky Tran, and trains. Implementing maglev differently into an electrical generator application eliminates friction, bearings, gravitational force, and maintenance. This innovative generator can retrofit into current applications; rotating mechanically, by maglev alone, by a combination of maglev and mechanical energy, enabling more efficient electric motors. The scientific basis for this work expands on maglev technology, Lenz’s laws, cryogenics, superconductors, and quantum physics.

YogiFi - The Future Technology of Holistic Wellness
YogiFi is an intelligent yoga gadget powered by AI and a perfect virtual yoga teacher for space travelers/astronauts. From the beginning of an astronaut’s training for space travel to subsequent spaceflight and space living, YogiFi can closely monitor various physical, mental and psychological health parameters and design customized yoga/fitness programs. The technology guides them step by step with real-time feedback to help them stay fit throughout their space journey. Space is an interesting use-case as having a real yoga coach/instructor is not possible on board. YogiFi technology comes to the rescue to track health and holistic wellness of space.
