TechTower hosted the Innovate Pilsen festival


On 7 and 8 June, the Innovate Pilsen festival took place in the Technology Park, focusing on the connection between technology, healthcare and well-being.

A varied programme was prepared for visitors, which took place both indoors and outdoors in the TechTower. Here they had the opportunity to interact with all exhibitors. The participating companies had a main stage on which to present their innovations and activities.

The outdoor aviary featured demonstrations of SPOTs, robots, robops, prototypes, drones and other technological innovations. Among the interesting moments were the demonstration of firefighters rappelling and the intervention of the Water Rescue Service in a water tank.

One of the biggest names in the film industry, Emmanuel Previnaire, winner of two Oscars and an Emmy Award, appeared at this year’s festival. This extraordinary man, who has made a name for himself with his visual effects and aerial shots in such blockbusters as James Bond, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones, brought the largest drone to the festival on behalf of Discovery. This drone measures an impressive three metres in length.

Emmanuel Previnaire is the founder of FLYING-CAM, a company that not only supplies drones to the film industry but also to the US military. His company is involved in many large projects and is constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible in aerial photography and visual effects.

Festival guests had the unique opportunity to attend a lecture where Emmanuel spoke about FLYING-CAM’s current situation and its plans for the future. The lecture was full of fascinating information and showed what innovations and technological advancements await us in the near future.

Previnair’s presence and his impressive Discovery drone became one of the highlights of the festival that visitors will remember for a long time.

The final presentations included the best projects from the IoT Academy. Families with children were able to try out the brand new SPOT game throughout the TechTower. The challenge was to locate QR codes placed around the Technology Park according to a web app created by students who regularly visit the park. Those who found all the codes received a mini SPOT made on a 3D printer.

The Innovate Pilsen 2024 festival welcomed nearly 6,000 visitors who had the opportunity to learn about the latest technologies of the future.
