Central area

This is the Central Area of Dutch Technology Festival: the place to be!

Between June 15 and 18, technology will rule at the Klokgebouw Eindhoven. Step into the world of technology: make a TikTok-video with your friends, learn how technology contributes to social issues and meet high tech companies from Brainport region.

In this area we offer various experiences, workshops and techtalks. More information about all activities coming soon!

Square World

The project started with a fascination for the shape of the silicon wafer, a round disc of semiconductor material that Nijmegen chip company NXP uses as a basis for producing rectangular microchips. When you look at your smartphone – the microchip, the manufacturing process and the design of your phone – the rectangular shape keeps coming back on different scales. We are constantly looking at rectangular pixels when we look at our phone screen. Moving from the atomic to the global scale, the vertical film tells the story of our tendency to want to make everything rectangular. The music is composed by Davin Mosterd, who was inspired by the round and square themes that recur in the film.

A mind-blowing VR experience

Have you always wanted to know how it feels to be a living cannonball? You don’t necessarily need solid ground under need your feet and would you rather shoot yourself through the air than root around on the couch?
 
Students at SintLucas have developed a VR game in which this is all possible. You crawl into the barrel of a large cannon, point the cannon at the target, say a quick prayer and fire yourself, hoping to land right in the middle of it. The game was developed entirely at DeStudio, from the concept and prototypes to the execution.
 
DeStudio is a design studio where fifteen SintLucas trainees are at the helm every six months. A studio that is formed by the great diversity of students and their projects. Where design is done; from graphic projects, to designing games, to product design… Where young professionals are given the space to shape their future and where they are trained to become the social, cultural and sustainable entrepreneurs of tomorrow.

In het Licht van Vincent

Together with ASML, the Van Gogh Museum is investigating how the world-famous paintings by Vincent van Gogh can be preserved for the future. This year, the Vakkanjers lent a hand by creating a 360-degree panorama using Vincent’s paintings. Every school made a piece of the panorama and the best pieces can be seen here at the festival. Which school do you like best? Go vote and be surprised!

Meat the Future: ice cream truck

Meat-flavoured ice cream: do you dare? The Bistro In Vitro ice cream truck is a great conversation starter about the future of eating meat. The ice cream truck is part of the fictional restaurant Bistro In Vitro that will open its doors in 2030. In the ice cream truck, visitors can get acquainted with possible dishes that in-vitro meat brings us.

As a foretaste of the opening of in-vitro meat restaurant Bistro In Vitro, visitors can taste six flavors of meat-flavoured ice cream during the Dutch Technology Festival. In addition, they can choose which speculative cultured meat starters and main courses they want to order in 2030. The ice cream truck is part of the larger exhibition Meat the Future.

NXP: Through the lens of a microscope

NXP makes microchips that are so small that you can hardly see them with the naked eye. These chips are in your phone, but also in cars to make them beep when you reverse. Did you know that the scale of a microchip is so tiny that colour does not even exist? Many people can’t imagine what a microchip looks like up close.
 
As a designer, Michelle shows you how enchanting a chip looks on a microscopic scale. Connections in a chip are made at different heights and therefore have different functions. When you zoom in on a chip, a whole landscape is revealed, just like a city. Michelle wants to show you what it’s like to wander through the landscape of a chip with a surreal view.

Robothond Spot

Robot dog Spot takes inspection to the next level. Designed to go where other robots cannot and to perform a wide range of tasks, the four-legged robot can be used to automate inspections, monitor and inspect remote or hazardous environments. Robot dog Spot is equipped with an acoustic camera (SV600) that allows you to remotely detect and visualize gas leaks in factories, airports or other places. The robot can be sent on a mission remotely, so that – just like with drones – it can be monitored. This robotic dog was designed by Boston Dynamics. Come & check out Spot in our Central Area!

Hypar

For this year’s edition of Dutch Technology Festival, the team worked with the organization to create a special installation. The light installation was created with the logo and corporate identity of the festival in mind, with the aim of offering visitors a unique light experience during their visit. Visitors are invited to walk close to the installation and enjoy the immersive experience.

Robots are serving drinks, taking orders and cleaning floors. See this ‘Smart Servant’ in action at #DutchTechFest!

Parking lot of the future

Come see the new generation of DAF trucks at the Central Area. The XF, XG and XG+ models have been awarded a ‘Truck Innovation Award’, making them ‘International Truck of the Year’. The trucks are equipped with the very latest gadgets and have an ultra-efficient diesel engine. This makes it very clean and economical and reduces CO2 emissions.
