A self-driving electric wheelchair, PiiMO, is capable of independently detecting, avoiding people and obstacles on the way to their destination. The fully autonomous wheelchair is capable to go anywhere and anytime. Hero Arm is the world's first medically approved 3D-printed prosthetic arm, with multi-grip functionality and empowering aesthetics. Another example of ‘Technology for Good’ is NuEyes E2, a removable visual prosthetic that helps the visually impaired see again while keeping their hands free.

The Aimbot robot from ZoraBots is one of the best robotic solutions to address the current threat of COVID-19. It is an indoor intelligent and autonomous anti-epidemic robot designed and built for virus prevention. Equipped with functional modules and multiple sensors, it navigates autonomously, interacts with people, measures body temperature, detects improperly protected individuals and automatically sprays disinfectant in indoor space.

Also on display at the healthcare section is the first unmanned pharmacy store built on computer vision, machine learning, and sensor-fusion technologies. Consumers can scan a WeChat or Alipay code to enter the store, take goods, and leave while payments are completed automatically.  

At the retail section, visitors can check out the Sound Shirt that slips on like a jacket allowing the deaf to “feel” music on their skin. The innovative shirt delivers a tactile experience where the hearing impaired can experience a live concert in a new, immersive way.
