Our Delhi Pitching for Asia Hardware Battle was a great success last week, thanks to our India partner and event co-host One Internet.
After scouring for the most promising startups that bring exciting hardware into our lives, we’ve finally found them – fifteen innovative teams with products that can remind you when to drink water, mix cocktails, lower air pollution, “smarten” your car, and more.
Without further ado, TechNode is pleased to announce the participants in Delhi Pitching (in order of appearance):
Chakr’s product, Kaal-Ink, is a novel product aimed at reducing the detrimental health effects of air pollution. Kaal-Ink is a device that can absorb nearly 81% of particulate matter emitted by diesel engine generators and industrial chimneys. These emissions pose a tremendous risk to public health as they are carcinogenic and small enough to easily enter the lungs and bloodstream. These emissions have been linked to a wide range of serious health effects including premature death, heart attacks, and bronchitis and aggravated asthma in children.
The Kaal-Ink doesn’t use a filter – it simply collects the matter. After its concentration reaches a predefined value, the particulate matter can be separated from Kaal-Ink using a patented process by Chakr. After the particulates have been separated from Kaal-Ink, the product can be reused to collect more particulates, at the same efficiency as if it were new. The collected particulates are sent to Chakr’s collection facility for further processing.

Contactless mobile payments is the next big wave. However, most mobile phones in circulation are not NFC-enabled and therefore unable to do this kind of payment. Rainbow Wallet’s proprietary device for merchants bridges the gap. Rainbow Wallet’s App generates an animation of flashing colors to securely transmit payment credentials using the mobile phone’s display. The device at the merchant’s end processes the animation to decode the payment credentials. The technology is novel and undergoing patent approval. The device costs less than 15USD, even in low volume quantities.
Leaf Innovation Private Limited
Leaf Innovation’s product, SAFER, is a smart device that sends distress signals to friends and family in case of an emergency. One of the app’s prominent features is SaferWalk where users can enter their start point and destination if they feel the route is unsafe. Through this, the user’s predesignated guardians can track the location and virtually accompany them until they reach the destination, after which live tracking can be disabled. SAFER Places is another important feature that displays nearby safe places, such as hospitals and police stations, directly on the map. SAFER has a pairing feature that it uses to connect with mobile phones.
