Obama to be Presented With Seven Amazing Israeli Innovations
During American President Barack Obama’s historic visit to Israel this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will show the president a series of technological innovations by Israel’s high-tech industries in a special exhibit that will be set up in the president’s honor.

The innovations presented were chosen in five categories: renewable energy, the war on traffic accidents, medicine, search and rescue and robotics.

The seven innovations presented to Obama will be:

Phinergy: The company has developed an aluminum-air battery designed for electric vehicles, which allows a significant increase in travel range (three times that of a regular electric vehicle).

Mobileye: The goal of Mobileye, a global pioneer in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), is to develop and market vision-based systems that will help drivers keep passengers safe on the roads and decrease traffic accidents.

ElMindA: The company's Brain Network Activation technology (BNA), developed in association with Bar Ilan University, provides a non-invasive tool for the visualization and quantification of BNAs of specific brain functionalities, disease development and rehabilitation from injuries, reactions to treatment, psychiatric and neurological problems and pain

Robot Snake: The robot is designed to enter spaces in collapsed structures and assist in location and rescue operations.

ReWalk: The ReWalk approach aims to give persons with lower limb disabilities, such as paraplegia, an experience that is as close to natural walking as possible.

MinDesktop: A headset that enables computers to be controlled by brainwaves or facial movements. The computer is controlled without a mouse or keyboard by means of a headset that images the user's brainwaves from 14 separate points.

Robot Waiter: Following the exhibit, Prime Minister Netanyahu will introduce the president to young scientists  from Haifa, who won an international robotics competition that was held in the US last year.
