What innovations will grow from the ideas we plant today?

The Qualcomm® Inventor Lab was created from our passion for inventing and sharing technology that brings the future closer to us. By utilizing Qualcomm® technology, innovators everywhere have the tools to turn their ideas into reality.

James Parr: Asteroid hunter

James Parr is keeping his eyes on the sky with the Ultrascope. Powered by a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor, the Ultrascope captures high-quality images of asteroids and transmits them wirelessly to the cloud using 4G LTE. Its connectivity leverages smartphones worldwide to create an Ultrascope data network—establishing a massive cloud-based database and map of all the asteroids near Earth.

Nicholas Hanna: Messaging activator

Nicholas Hanna saw an opportunity to transform the way we live with the TrikeWriter. Using DragonBoard™ 410c technology, based on the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 series processor from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., Nicholas turned a bicycle—a centuries-old, straightforward mode of transportation—into a mobile, wireless communications vehicle for the modern world. The TrikeWriter receives messages and writes them in its path via water calligraphy.
