The expansion of untact consumption has brought about changes to the distribution sector. On this week’s #Hash_Tech, we introduce the rise of retail tech, which refers to the collaboration of cutting-edge technologies with the distribution sector. First, we introduce an unmanned convenience store which has implemented state-of-the-art technologies. An AI clerk greets consumers instead of humans and it informs the event items including discounts, gifts and promotions. Consumers can make payments simply by picking up items and coming out of the store thanks to the LiDAR sensor that is installed on the ceiling. Also, a face recognition system has recently been introduced for the entry and payment systems. Moreover, we introduce a special robot which has implemented advanced retail technologies. Considering the rising demand for delivery services, there is a robot that makes beverages for delivery services. It can make beverages and even seal them without the help of humans. We introduce advanced retail technologies, which have increased convenience in people’s daily lives.

“Hometainment” is a compound word of home and entertainment. And it means a variety of different entertaining programs that can be enjoyed at home. On this week’s #BizTech_Brunch, we talk about “hometainment” which is a rising trend. A lot of different fields including home gardening, cooking and interior designs have emerged in the field. And in the case of home cafes, the sales of coffee equipment have increased by 50%. Also, for at-home workouts, an IoT sensor that can transform general exercise equipment into VR devices has been developed. The rise of “hometainment” has led to the growth of the “homeconomy” market, which refers to the economic activities that are done at home, in online spaces. The government is planning to accelerate the supporting polices for the field to vitalize the “homeconomy” market. We look into the rapid rise of “hometainment,” which will collaborate with a lot of different industries.

3D bioprinting is a technology that can generate accurate replicas of human organs or body parts. And it has brought innovation to the biological and medical sectors. This week on #Lab_Tube, we introduce the 3D Cell printing Research Center of POSTECH, or Pohang University of Science and Technology, which has led the 3D bioprinting industry by developing world-class technologies. The research team has developed the world’s first “tissue-specific bioink” which can reproduce human organs or cells. The tissue-specific bioink can reduce the possibility of secondary infections in the human body and minimize side effects. The research team has focused on developing artificial cancer and vascular cells as well as a variety of in vitro models for organs and cells. We explore the 3D Cell printing Research Center of POSTECH, which aims to realize safe transplants of artificial organs that are made with human cells.
