Robots Light-Saber Fighting: “I Could Watch That All Day!”

Held in Hannover, Germany, for 70 years, 2017’s Hannover Messe was the biggest yet with more than 225,000 attendees, including giants like Schindler, which showcased its Internet of Things technology, as well as small startups such as UVIS, which promoted its escalator-handrail degermination system that uses UV light. UVIS and its young founders, Katharina Obladen and Tanya Nickel, were featured in ELEVATOR WORLD in January of this year, and they will be featured again in our July Web Exclusive, “Hannover Messe from a Young Entrepreneur’s Point of View.” The event was heavy on robots and featured many elaborate, eye-catching displays such as this one  featuring Star Wars light-saber action, shared with EW by Obladen. One of my colleagues said, “I could watch this all day!” I certainly agree with him.
