Expo R & D IPTA 2005

Location at PWTC, Exhibition hall(30th September 2005 to 2nd October 2005):

When I walked into the hall, I was shocked to see the size of its activities. So many smart people out there... so many inventors.

I was so filled with jeolousy and wanted to talk to each and everyone of them to challenge my intellectual.

Thus, I start from the first booth and started introducing myself and the company I represent. Along the way, I tried to listen to their inventions and it actually gave me a lot of entertaintment.

1. Psychological Stress Sensor.
If I am not mistaken it is done by U.M researcher. It measures changes in enzyme.
This is a not-bad research because i believe that stress is the biggest catalyst of all diseases.

2. SKINPLAST for Ulcer and wound.
Regular mouth ulcer sufferer would know it, it takes average 14 days for the ulcer would to completely cure. During those time, one would suffer while eating and drinking.

Chinese would usually resort to Watermelon-extract-powder which only serves to minimize the pain. For Skinplast, thanks to research group from U.M, it can speed up the recovering process.

Some Malaysian villagers have been using for ages the bark of ZX plant to treat oral recurrent aphthous ulcerations (RAU) and skin wounds. RAU affects about 25% of the world population.

SKINPLAST made of ZX plant extract is a herbal product and is beneficial for the treatment of mouth ulcers (RAU) and skin wounds.

For this research team, they don't even have a web site for it.

3. Blanching diagnostic Kit
Blanching is a heat treatment process generally applied to fruits and vegetables prior to storage inactive the enzymes present. The major problems in blanching process are over-blanced or under-blanched.

Blanching diagnostic kit is developed for to determine the adequacy of blanching. It is a device consisting of chemical solutions. It determines the degree of blanching process with colour changes by the redox reaction in the presence of enzyme and chemical mixture. It facilitate blanching testing as a simple process where it involves only a device rather than 14 apparatus and instruments needed in the conventional procedure. In addition, 8 steps in conventional method for the tests are being reduced to 4 simple steps.

No web site.

Networking Expert:

This is Dr. Suhaidi of University Utara Malaysia. Its research group is famous for computer networking stuff, as shown in the picture, it is something about secure networking implementation. He was telling me about the ICOCI 2006 conference.

They are cautious with IP protection that there is no printer brochure to be distributed. That is why you can see that instead of doing brochure, they did a big poster for display.

Tsunami Relieve:

What you are seeing here is a Wave suppress system - with floating breakwater. It is invented by Universiti Teknologi Petronas.

In the endeavour to meet a wave-protection problem with a functional cost-effective engineering design, Wave Suppress System appears to be an ideal alternative as well as a viable solution in providing the required level of tranquility for the areas that require protection, such as recreational harbours, marinas, lagoons, inland area seas, reservoirs, lakes and rivers.

To stop Tsunami, according to Mr. Teh Hee Min, it is still a long way to go.

I thought I am the only one who thought about creating a portal and let these R & D guy upload their contents to attract investors, partners and more funding. But it seems like everything has got someone figured out already.

IPTech Exchange is according to the spokeperson, a very newly launched portal for R & D work. To find out more please check the web site.

But the problem anticipated is that only those technologies which are lousy and not in demand would be caught in the databases, popular and good ones would have already been grapped and patented around.

They are all complaining the same things...
1. Not enough funding. They haven't been able to apply for new funding for the past 3 months. But since yesterday, government just allocated RM868 millions for R & D and is sure to give them certain degree of excitement.
2. They are all having the same thought. Looking for angel to help them with the next time. They have done their job, which is to realize the idea and crytalize the inventions. whatever happen is god willing. All of them are not surprise about my proposal as partner for commercialization, collaboration and middle-man for investor. They are all open for anyone, anywhere and anytime as long as they don't have to pay anything. Typical Malaysian.. So who is the fool here ? (don't mention pls)
3. I can see, apart from some which already engaged with commercial partners, that most of the inventions are only prototype ready. There are still plenty to go and to prove. Some of them invented something and just don't know what to do next. There is this researcher from University Sabah Malaysia just sat there and have no interest to really explain to me, but he tried his best. They developed a shrimp cultivation system under biotechnology. They hope that someone like me would get over-excited about it. Anyway, I will try my best too.

My favourite invention ?
I was attracted to the "Animated Introductory Calculus" created by a research group in UPM.

Animated Introductory Calculus Educational Software and Textbook is a next-generation textbook that combines the power of multimedia technology such as Flash and couple with thoroughly developed Calculus content (means that someone has to be a mathematian who understand thoroughly everything about such topic) to provide a rich and effective learning experience.

It contains a comprehensive series of multimedia video lectures that enriches and energizes lessons, facilites whole-class teaching, motivates students, enabled teachers to be more creative, promotes enthusiam for learning, improves understanding, leads to higher levels of retention, raises achievement and is more interesting than traditional lectures.

I totally agreed. I wish them all the best.

I didn't manage to talk to everyone but at least I visited 80% of the exhibitions. All of them are very intelligent and friendly people. Although some seems layback, it is becoz of their character of a non-outspoken type. It is blessing to have most of them to be Malaysian. To get a summary of the exhibitors, please download this file.

I was a bit dissappointed because there is nothing much I go do about Biotech with my IT skills. It seems like they are very much more chemical-engineering driven than IT-driven.

You alone and GOD

Is there a god? is there not a god? is there one god? or are there many gods? The world, with its many religions and billions of people, embraces all of these. Is there a right answer and can it be known with absolute certainty? The answer is yes, and you have the opportunity and the ability starting right now to know. And you must know, because where you spend eternity will depend on it!!

Yes! There is a GOD. And HE is ONE: MOST HIGH, MOST HOLY and JUST, ALMIGHTY GOD who is from everlasting to everlasting, by whom and for whom all things were created: The universe and everything in it (consider for a moment how it, the universe, is made with only a little over one hundred individual, infinitesimally small building blocks that man calls atoms; assembled in incomprehensible quantities and ways beyond man's imagination or understanding—both the animate and the inanimate).

But this most wonderful creation would be meaningless without intelligent life to be aware of it in awe and wonder and to explore, enjoy and use it.

But God also created mankind in His own image, i.e., also with ability to create and He entrusted man with a free will to do whatever he chose (even if it meant denying the very one who created him). And to perpetuate himself, procreation was also given him, but interestingly, one individual was not enough; two were required (male and female). Each with different rolls and responsibilities, but totally dependent upon the other for the purpose of perpetuating life.

And God said, "Come; walk with me; abide under my shadow and live forever." But mankind decided to go its own way, thereby limiting its lifetime and having it filled with uncertainties.

Now, the stage is set: Mankind has the ability and the environment to make the most of the lifetime given it; including the most important venture of all and that is the one to reunite with his creator, Almighty God.

Yes; you have one life to live, as you choose. It may be long one, but even one hundred years is but a speck in time when compared to eternity. Then, according to the Word of God, you will come before Him to be judged as to how you received Him or if you even had a desire to know Him.

And yes, there is a way you can know Him, and that as intimately as you want, it is your choice. And the relationship that you can have with the ALMIGHTY is not dependent upon anyone else—or any religion—or anything other than your own desire.

It is vital that you realize that you are a unique individual (very special) and that He gave you (like everyone ever born) a way and the ability to commune with Him, one-on-one. Therefore, when you come before Him to be judged, you will not be able to blame anyone or any religion (or its beliefs or teachings) for misleading you.

You have the right and a great privilege, from Him, to come directly to Him with all of your questions and for all of their answers. And if you don't understand as well or the same as the next one, that is not important. What is important to Him is where your heart is and and that is how you will be judged.

It is imperative that you trust no one, but Him, for your eternal salvation. But because you have sinned, you are separated from Him and until your sin is removed you are in a state of darkness and uncertainty, easily led further and further away from Him by any notion or thought that comes to you or through someone else or some religious movement or philosophy that seems right to you.

Don't be fooled or deceived! The only way for you to trust Him is to know Him, and the only way to know Him is to go directly to Him to know that your sins can be removed completely. There is a way, and it is for you, and once taken you will begin to see and understand just how much He loves you and desires to give you all things. You are very important to Him and loved by Him as much as anyone ever born. But, unless you turn to Him, you will be forever separated from Him—and lost through all eternity. There is a way, and it's simple, but it is His way and not yours. How do you know which way is His? You ask Him!

He said, "Ask and you will receive; Seek and you will find; Knock and it will be opened to you." If you believe this, and act on it with the simple faith of a child a whole new life and world will open up to you. It costs you nothing to ask Him, He wants you to try Him and prove Him whether He is real or not; whether He is the living God and not some figment or perversion of man's imagination as proclaimed by most of the world's great religions.

How and why have these great religions come into being? Because man has done everything he can do without doing the one thing he must do, to have his sin removed. There is only one way and that is the way prepared and given to man by the living God (the one who knew mankind would sin and would desperately need a way to be delivered from it).

He said, "Seek and you will find." It is not only important to ask, but to search for Him with all of your being. Never ceasing. He said, "If you misplaced a valuable item would you not search, diligently, for it?" And in another place, He said, "If you search diligently for me with all of your heart you will find me. But if you are not interested in finding me you will be separated from me and lost—forever." He wants very much for you to find Him (for your sake), but He will not force you to do anything. He wants you to be free from any form of bondage or enslavement.

He said, "Knock and it will be opened to you." Be persistent in your quest for the truth, as measured by Him, and all things will be revealed to you.

This you can be certain of, that He is true and faithful to His Word, and He will never leave you or forsake if you call to Him. His door is always open if you go to Him in a humble and contrite spirit, desiring to know Him.

God is a spirit, a most holy spirit, and man if he goes to Him, must go to Him in spirit and in truth.

Certainly God knows whether you are sincere or not. He knows everything about you. He knows every sin and transgression you have ever committed, and they are all tallied against you, waiting to be revealed at your time of judgment unless they are removed (washed away completely) before you die. And they can be, by the way prepared by Him, and only that way.

Not by works, ever, as promoted and practiced by most of the world's religions or by man's sacrifices, no matter how great or good they may be.

"Think about it!" Your eternal salvation depends on it. Think how most of the world's religions have and keep man in bondage by their regimens of good works, service and forms of worship. All in the name of or for the purpose of reconciling man to God and delivering him from his sin.

There are many good things achieved through these efforts, but they can't and will not, ever, in themselves, wash away your sins. They can be another type of bondage that the living God wants man to be free from so that he may freely walk with Him and serve Him.

He loves you, He wants to wash away your sin, but you have to desire Him and go to Him and accept His way, for it to be done.

Submit, and commit yourself to Him, only, and totally, with no reservations; cry out to Him to open your eyes and show you how He, and He alone, paid the price for your sins to be washed away. Time is running out for you. Only you can perform this act, no one else can do it for you. But be assured that if you call to Him, in sincerity, He will hear you for He is the living God.

Be aware, also, that the god you serve may not be the living God, or worse, the religion or its teachings that you are involved in may have so polluted or diluted the message of salvation that you are still in your sin and have never experienced true salvation. But you must find the truth, for your eternal salvation is the price you will pay if you do not! Don't hesitate any longer. Fall to your knees, now, and ask Him to come into your heart and show you the way to salvation before it is too late. His answer may be immediate or it may be given to you over a period of time, but never stop seeking the truth from Him, for His way is the only way. "Ask; Seek; Knock:" You can trust Him.

And Almighty God, your Heavenly Father, Creator of all things will richly bless you.
