SunBridge StartUps LLP, to Invest in WHILL, Who Develops and Sells Next Generation Electrical Personal Mobility

(PRWEB) August 23, 2013

Global seed accelerator SunBridge Global Ventures Inc. (head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan; President & CEO: Ikuo Hiraishi; henceforth SunBridge GV), via SunBridge Startups LLP (head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Japan; Partner: Ikuo Hiraishi; henceforth SunBridge Startups) run by SunBridge GV affiliates, has invested in WHILL Inc. (head office: California, USA; CEO: Satoshi Sugie, henceforth WHILL) which is undertaking the development and sales of a next generation electrical personal mobility WHILL.

WHILL is a personal mobility which can be used on the sidewalk with both pleasing functionality and style. Not only can any ordinary people use it, people with mild disabliities or elderly people with difficulty walking can also ride it with ease and style allowing them to be mobile.

WHILL team members consist of young designers and engineers originating from major Japanese manufacturers which have supported the Japanese manufacturing industry such as Nissan/Sony/Olympus and they make use of the knowledge and the experinece gained there as well as attempting to realize new product development and manufacturing style which were hard to realize in the major manufacturers.

Amidst the "maker movement" in which anyone with an idea and a PC is able to make and sell products, by the move toward such as open source software, the changes in the parts production environment using 3D printers, and fabless manufacturing to outsource production to external cooperative companies, WHILL is quickly and effectively propelling development and production.

With this financing not only has the capital been achieved for propelling the operation further, but by receiving investments from high added value investors, we have been able to utilize their advice and network. The next generation personal mobility WHILL which can be used on the sidewalk is aimed at a world in which healthy people, of course, but also mildly disabled or elderly people for whom walking may be difficult can go outside in a pleasant and smart fashion (CEO: Satoshi Sugie).

WHILL is attempting to succeed in the electric wheelchair/senior car market which is estimated to become just short of 10 bilioon dollars in the world by 2020, and with this financing it will propel the development/production/sales of the mass production model of this first product. With mid-2014 as a target, they plan to sell 50 of them directly to the US market and after that they plan to expand into other countries including Japan sequentially. In this round, Itochu Technology Ventures, Inc., 500 Startups as well as WIngle Co., Ltd. have invested.

SunBridge Startups is a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) established through investment from SunBridge GV affiliates in June 2011. With three themes - Go Global, Global Cloud Platfom and Innovation Weekend Winner as its pillars, it discovers and develops global ventures originating in Japan.

Employee Mobility Creates Success in the Enterprise: Appointment-Plus Responds to CDW Survey that Shows Increased Tablet Usage in the Workplace

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 12, 2013

According to a June 23rd Computerworld article that summarized surveyed stats from technology provider CDW, 84 percent of employee respondents said tablets make them better multi-taskers at work.

And this helps them gain just over one hour in daily productivity.

When multiplied by the large number of workers enterprise-size companies typically employ, this increase in productivity time is dramatic. For example, many larger organizations that utilize Appointment-Plus enterprise scheduling software save tens of thousands of work hours each week.

Tablets let employees perform their tasks more efficiently, as they can access work-related applications on the go, said Stephen Booze, CIO of Appointment-Plus. People tend to be more productive when theyre not tied down to a single computer.

Tablets give them flexible options for managing and completing their job duties.

Among the tasks that large organizations such as automotive dealerships and service-based franchises can easily manage with tablets are customer appointments. Online scheduling software lets staff instantly view their calendars and book appointments in seconds.

Here are three reasons why enterprise scheduling software is the perfect fit with iPads and Android tablets.



Advanced Mobility Builds Custom Specialty Vehicle for Research and Development of Beamed mm-Wave Propulsion

Monee, Illinois (PRWEB) June 11, 2013

Advanced Mobility and Specialty Vehicles (, a leader in the design and manufacture of mobile medical, television broadcast and production, and specialty trailers, is proud to announce today that they have delivered a one-of-a-kind, custom designed and constructed mobile testlab trailer for Lightcraft Technologies, Inc. (LTI), headquartered in Bennington, Vermont. This Mobile Testing Unit (MTU) will be the home of a state-of-the-art beamed energy propulsion research laboratory and test flight launch command center.

When I first noticed the 'Advanced Mobility' branding on a mobile MRI trailer parked outside a local hospital, I instinctively knew they were the kind of company with sufficient technical expertise to build a vehicle designed for the kind of high-power mm-wave propulsion research that we are pursuing, said Leik Myrabo, President of Lightcraft Technologies, Inc. There are only a few high-power microwave sources around the country, and our testing will be conducted in multiple dispersed and remote areas; therefore our research laboratory and flight test command center had to be a mobile unit. The bonus is that Advanced Mobility had the creative talent to design and put into an 8 x 85 x 48 trailer, not only what I had envisioned from a technical perspective, but also in terms of aesthetics and human-factors design, since our team would be spending 10 hour days in this trailer for weeks at a time over the next 6-9 months.

The Lightcraft Technologies MTU trailer ultimately came to be a sophisticated, high-tech mobile facility designed to support two dissimilar functions: 1) a research laboratory for conducting beamed millimeter-wave (mm-wave) propulsion experiments; and 2) a launch command center for conducting actual outdoor test flights using remote, high-power beamed mm-wave sources. The MTU had to be specially designed and constructed to satisfy all the legal and safety regulations for using and directing a mm-wave beam onto lab test articles. Some of these requirements include but are not limited to ensuring: a) high-energy mm-wave beam containment (a Faraday cage) and dissipation within the Testlab Room, b) engine exhaust purging and noise attenuation in the Testlab Room, c) a separate Faraday cage (adjacent to the Testlab) for the Control Room/Command Center; d) proper handling and storage of high-pressure gases such as helium, argon, nitrogen, and CO2; and e) safety interlocks on all essential MTU systems. A total of six mm-wave beam entry points had to be constructed and installed, three for the curbside, and three for the other side. The mm-wave beam being used is 100x to 1,000x more powerful than the household microwave oven i.e., up to one million watts.

To be used as a Launch Command Center, the MTU had to be designed and constructed to shield the test crew inside the MTU from incidental exposure to high-power mm-wave radiation while conducting outdoor flight tests of the beam propelled rocket vehicle prototypes planned for this Fall.

This was the most challenging and creative project we have ever had the privilege to work on, said Bob Bachman, President, Advance Mobility and Specialty Vehicles. With our long history of building mobile magnetic and radiology vehicles, we were able to assure Leik and the departments of government he is working with, that we had the technical expertise needed to meet all of the safety regulations and functional design requirements.

Advanced Mobility worked diligently to accommodate the requirements of Lightcraft Technologies and several government regulators, by developing the exact specifications for the trailers exterior shielding, emergency systems, an appropriate ergonomically designed interior, two Faraday cages, and a comfortable break-room facility. A custom 3-zone Air Conditioning Unit and Chiller System was also designed and installed, along with Lightcraft Technologies custom interior and exterior graphics.

Advanced Mobility has successfully brought the MTU into reality, making all of us here at Lightcraft Technologies and the organizations we are working with, finally see what we had envisioned all along, added Leik Myrabo. On March 8, 2013, the MTU trailer rolled out of Advanced Mobility headed for San Diego and the final step in its construction: plasma spray coating of the Testlab interior walls, floor and ceiling with a 15-mill ceramic glaze of titanium dioxide, applied by Flame Spray, Inc. Armed with this formidable new research tool, the MTU, I believe the technological demonstration of beamed mm-wave launch propulsion will be within grasp in the not-so-distant future.

The Advanced Mobility team built and delivered the new Mobile Testing Unit to Lightcraft Technologies in less than six months. Later this Fall, the MTU will be residing at a preeminent outdoor test range in New Mexico -- hence the inspiration for its southwest interior design theme. For more information, visit:

Sharp PC-UM10 Notebook Awarded
“Best Ultralight Notebook” Mobility Award

(PRWEB) May 31, 2002

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. — May 31, 2002 — Sharp Systems of America today announced that its 2.89-pound PC-UM10 notebook was awarded “Best Ultralight Notebook” at Mobile Insights’ “Go Mobile” Spring Conference held this month in Naples, Florida.

    The Mobility Awards honor the most innovative and successful mobile products and services of the past year in a variety of categories, and have become one of the most recognized and respected awards in the mobile industry. The winners were selected by 27 of the industry’s most influential analysts and members of the press.

    "We congratulate Sharp on behalf of the Mobility Awards committee for being selected as the best ultralight notebook. The Sharp PC-UM10 is perfectly suited for the executive who focuses on email and Web browsing," said J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., CEO of Mobile Insights, a market research firm in Mountain View, CA. "Sharp is leveraging its strengths in advanced displays, advanced packaging of electronics and sleek industrial design that is going to shake up the notebook industry. It's going to get a lot of consideration by executives who want the lightest full-function notebook to carry around the office and on the road."

    "The PC-UM10 is truly an engineering breakthrough,” said Greg Nakagawa, senior vice president and general manager for Sharp Systems of America. "This full-performance notebook weighs less than three pounds and is just two-thirds of an inch thick at its thinnest point. The PC-UM10 is the perfect balance of performance and mobility.”

    To offer true mobility, a notebook should provide all day computing power and a comfortable travel weight with any necessary accessories. The PC-UM10 excels in both areas. With the optional extended life battery, the PC-UM series notebook weighs just 3.7 pounds and can be used for up to 9 hours. Adding an AC adapter and external CD-ROM drive to the PC-UM series notebook using the standard battery, brings the weight to just 4 pounds, a travel weight that is 30% to 50% less than most ultraportable notebooks on the market.

    Announced in September, the PC-UM10 was the first in a series of ultraportable notebooks released by Sharp. Powered by an Intel® Pentium® III 600 MHz ULV processor, configured with 128MB RAM and a 20GB hard drive, running the Windows 2000 operating system and offering up to nine hours of battery life the PC-UM10 is ideally suited for today’s business travelers. In October, Sharp announced the PC-UM10M with 256MB RAM. The PC-UM10 is competitively priced with an estimated street price of $ 1,299 and the PC-UM10M is available for $ 1,399. An external CD-ROM drive can be added to either model for just $ 100.

    In March, Sharp announced their latest ultraportable notebook, the PC-UM20. The newest notebook shares the sleek design of the PC-UM10 but includes an Intel® Pentium® III 750 MHz ULV processor, 256MB RAM and is dual pre-installed with Microsoft® Windows® XP Pro and Windows® 2000 Professional . The estimated street price for the PC-UM20 is $ 1,699, or $ 1,799 with an external CD-ROM drive.

VMI Gives Mobility Sales the Ability to Hold Handicap Vans via the Computer

VMI Gives Mobility Sales the Ability to Hold Handicap Vans via the Computer

Dodge Grand Caravan

(Vocus/PRWEB) March 31, 2011

VMI has released the ability for Mobility Sales to put handicap vans on hold for customers through a simple, easy-to-use computer interface. This offers myriad benefits, and can ensure that customers are able to get the wheelchair van of their choice, without hassles.

VMI has implemented several key Internet improvements, one of which is this new feature. Mobility dealers can put any Vantage Mobility International van on hold through their computer for a 48-hour period. Moreover, this can be done at any time, day or night. This provides dealers with the ability to bypass the need to go through VMI’s Dealer Relations Department and speed the closing process along for their customers.

Mobility dealers need only follow a simple four-step process to place a hold on any handicap van. They must first log on through the dealer section of Vantage Mobility International’s website. They must then select the Available Inventory section. From this point, the dealer simply finds the van in question and clicks on the photo. A new window will appear, containing information and details about the van. From this page, the dealer simply fills in the pertinent information required, and clicks the submit button. The van is now held for up to 48 hours.

In addition, Vantage Mobility International’s automated system will send the dealer with the hold a reminder at the 24-hour mark, as well as another at the 48-hour mark. The reminder is simply a notice that the hold will expire. Dealers will also have access to information about all vehicles currently being held under their dealership number, which makes managing this aspect of the process far simpler than ever before.

Mobility Sales can use this new tool to the advantage of their customers, helping to create a streamlined process from the beginning of the sale to handing over the keys.

About Mobility Sales: Mobility Sales has one goal – to provide their customers with the highest quality mobility solutions possible. They offer an immense inventory of wheelchair vans, wheelchair lifts and mobility equipment designed to give handicapped individuals greater freedom and more control over their lives.
