Nanotech Security Corp. today announced that Vice President Clint Landrock presented at TEDxRenfrewCollingwood. The independently organized TED event was held on October 24, 2014.
The day-long event brought together more than 400 creators, catalysis, designers and thinkers from the Vancouver area to share ideas around the theme “Rock, Paper, Scissors.” Landrock presented on the influence of nature on innovation in technology, using Nanotech’s story as one example of what can be achieved when companies turn to nature as a source of inspiration. TEDxRenfrewCollingwood took place at Windermere Community Secondary School in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Nanotech VP Clint Landrock Presenting at TEDx RCW
“TEDxRCW has a reputation for putting together a first-class event with tremendous speakers and performers, and I honoured to have been a part of it this year,” said Mr. Landrock. “TED presentations are among the most viewed and inspiring talks anywhere, and regularly introduce the world to new ideas, talents and technologies. Taking inspiration from nature to develop technologies that not only improves our lives but also reduces our impact on the environment is the future for innovation.”
Mr. Landrock found inspiration for Nanotech’s next generation authentication technology from the Blue Morpho Butterfly. Mr. Landrock showcased the “butterfly effect” that is helping to authenticate banknotes and brands to protect people from fraudulent and harmful products and practices. He also introduced some new areas where this technology can be applied in the textile and beauty industries, which may hold the potential to dramatically reduce our impact on the environment. The morpho’s wings consist of billions of tiny nano-structures, which act like nano-scale colour pixels on a display, that interact with light to produce bright colours without dyes or pigments. Nanotech’s technology leverages this effect by engineering nanostructures that can be embossed or imprinted onto the surface of a material to create vibrant colours and high definition images.
