Izhar Gafni, the automation expert behind the now-world-famous cardboard bicycle and cardboard
wheelchair. The idea behind both inventions is to make these essential modes of transportation
available to the masses, particularly in developing nations, for very low cost. I.G. Cardboard
Technologies can produce the sturdy bikes and wheelchairs out of less than $10 worth of durable

changed the industry making it possible to digitally print everything from photo albums to winebottle labels after Indigos 2002 acquisition by Hewlett-Packard. Last year, Landa made waves

Bernard Ben-Natan, a former combat medic who developed an Emergency Bandage that was so
vital to saving lives of US soldiers during the Iraq conflict that it was nicknamed the Israeli bandage.
The product, developed by First Care Products in Jerusalem, stops traumatic hemorrhaging and can
also be used as a tourniquet or sling with its built-in pressure bar and closure bar. It has become a
staple in trauma care throughout American hospitals.
The trip itinerary, planned by ISRAEL21c and Keshet: The Center for Educational Tourism in
Israel, also will include visits to:
Mobileye, the Jerusalem-based company, whose pioneering Advanced Driver Assistance System
(ADAS) for greater driver safety has been implemented by BMW, Volvo, GM and Ford in more than
one million vehicles. Next year, the system will become standard for new vehicles as per standards
set by Euro-NCAP.

The Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, often referred to as the MIT of Israel, deserving in its own
right as the birthplace of many of Israels most famous game-changing developments and technology
leaders, including three Nobel Prize winners most recently, Prof. Danny Shechtman.
When President Barack Obama visited Israel earlier this year, scientists from the Technions
Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute gave him replicas of the Declarations of Independence of the
United States and Israel that they had inscribed side by side on a nano-chip.
While at the Haifa campus, the US president
also got a close-up look at other
groundbreaking inventions from Technion
staff or graduates, such as the snake
robot search-and-rescue device and the
ReWalk battery-powered exoskeleton that
enables paraplegics to walk, sit, stand and
climb stairs.
