Thanks to the victory at the Microsoft Imagine Cup in Bratislava, our students will go to the USA finals

The XGLU student startup, engaged in the development of a battery-free glucometer, won the first place in the Czech-Slovak finals of the Microsoft Imagine Cup competition in Bratislava. Marek Novák, Tomáš Pikous and Barbora Suchanová secured their participation in the global finals in Seattle, where they will compete it latter July with top ten university teams from around the world.

In May 2016, a student of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, CTU Marek Novák, started the XGLU, which is also involved in the development of a unique glucometer. It takes the form of a credit card and uses NFC to communicate with your mobile phone. Marek Novák, together with his classmates Tomáš Pikous and Barbora Suchanova, decided to create the whole idea of extending a glucometer solution for the web and mobile applications for diabetic children and their parents. They have worked throughout the summer semester and have successfully presented it at a prestigious competition focusing on Microsoft technologies.
