World’s First Self-lighting Candle

https://korean-electronics.com//inquiry[INQ. NO. 1804E02] LUMOS CANDLE is the world’s first auto-ignition candle. When you light a candle, it is common for your hand to get burned or hurt, and you cannot light a candle unless you have an ignition tool. On the other hand, LUMOS CANDLE lights up just by pressing its button. Even if you have difficulty using a lighter or are uncomfortable with your hands, you can easily light it. You can thus enjoy the candle more safely and comfortably.
LUMOS CANDLE is a handmade candle with natural soy ingredients. All products are made of high quality soy wax and selected fragrance oil without using paraffin. The refill candle can be easily inserted and removed from the pad. So, if you have used up your candle or want to use a different fragrance, you can remove the existing refill candle and place a new refill candle on the pad, then you can use it right away. LUMOS CANDLE is stabilized on a pad to minimize shaking so the refill candle can fit onto the pad stably. Additionally a lighter is a consumable item, but the LUMOS PAD can be used semi-permanently with a built-in rechargeable battery. You can use it for more than four months once it is fully charged (Based on use of four times per day).
Lumos Candle Co., Ltd., was established in November 2016 as a start-up company. In July 2017, it succeeded in launching the world’s first one-touch automatic ignition candle, and is currently developing a smart candle capable of connecting with smartphones.

Smart Factory Platform “WimFactory”

https://korean-electronics.com//inquiry[INQ. NO. 1708E02] UlalaLAB in the Smart Content Center of the National IT Industry Promotion Agency was selected as one of the top 10 global start-ups in recognition of WimFactory, a smart factory platform based on the IIoT (Industrial IoT) and data in the fourth industrial revolution sector. The start-up introduced a smart factory not for large companies such as GE and Siemens but rather for small and mid-sized enterprises.
“I feel honored as our company was singled out as one of the top 10 via an evaluation by the judging committee consisting of scientists, entrepreneurs, investors and influential industry experts,” said Kang Hak-joo, CEO of UlalaLAB. “I hope that WimFactory will be a big helpinghand to many manufacturing companies brooding over the construction of smart factories due to the advent of the fourth industrial revolution.”
Smart factory platform WimFactory by UlalaLAB can be built by attaching the smart factory IoT device Wicon of UlalaLAB’s own development to existing facilities and equipment after connecting it to a measurement sensor. Its device cost is one-tenth of the price of an existing platform. Monthly cloud cost enables people to use the service easily and conveniently.
Accordingly, this greatly reduces burdens of initial smart factory construction costs. Users can monitor real-time data from equipment collected through Wicon with smartphones, PCs, tablets and so forth.
UlalaLAB is currently providing the WimFactory platform to a Nike footwear manufacturing company in Indonesia and Atlas Copco Korea, a Swedish equipment company. The company is headquartered in the Smart Content Center of the National IT Industry Promotion Agency.
