A Wheelchair to Make Hiking 'Accessible for All'
In 2008, the original Trekker model that Zur’s father rode was able to change wheels in 40 to 50 seconds. Today’s model “does the same in about four seconds,” Zur says, and includes specially designed ropes to make pulling more comfortable for the helpers. Typically, three to four people need to be on hand to push or pull the trekker on the trail. Paratrek is one of the only companies in the world building hiking wheelchairs, but the company earns revenue in three different ways – selling the Trekkers, teaching workshops, and organizing hikes.

Smart Walls and All - Israel Border Security Technology
Border security has increasingly become one of the most pressing issues within nations’ homeland security agencies. Though a controversial subject, there has been a consensus that borders must be secured humanely. A popular humanitarian solution has been the creation of smart walls. A smart wall is the use of technologies such as cameras, scanners, sensors, and radars used to prevent illicit entry, smuggling, and threats along borders... Besides Israel’s largest defense companies, there are several promising homeland security Israeli start-ups that specialize in smart wall solutions. Find out who they are and if they are relevant to your organisation: https://israeltrade.org.au/2022/05/06/israel-border-security-technology-smart-walls-and-all/

Fast-forward to 2022 and are we witnessing the same thing with Mark Zuckerberg’s aspirations for the Metaverse. In between this time, we have seen mini internet revolutions that have transformed the way we work, communicate and grow as a society. Google and Facebook... we did not realise their impact, then, but will this be the same with the Metaverse? How far will it impact our lives?

Transforming Farming & Agribusiness
Israel has cultivated a legacy of agricultural innovation in the face of scarcity for many years. With advanced research, entrepreneurial farmers and technologists, and government support, the country has produced an Agritech sector that today numbers more than 500 globally oriented companies excelling in many different areas. Interest in technologies for agriculture will continue as farm management adopts data-driven agronomy. Digital imaging, sensors, and artificial intelligence platforms are set to change farming from precision to ‘predictive’ agriculture. From predictive agriculture to crop insurance, these Israeli firms are bringing technological innovation to modernize the agriculture industry. Discover their innovative solutions: https://israeltrad

Remember the Acronym - eVTOLs
It’s been a long and tiring workday. When 5pm finally rolls around, you’re ready to throw open the door, beat all possibility of traffic, and fly home. And in a few short years, you’ll likely have the chance to do that. Flying cars are the future and eVTOLs (electric vertical takeoff and landing vehicles) are the next big thing in personal mobility. This week, the Israeli company AIR announced its partnership with Australian electric aircraft distributor, FlyOnE, to supply AIR’s first eVTOL aviation fleet to Australian consumers. I can't wait to try it out and share pictures on IdeaSpies: https://israeltrade.org.au/2022/03/22/israeli-evtol-creator-air-to-deliver-first-fleet-to-australian-buyers/
