Samsung Solve for Tomorrow

Our Solve for Tomorrow program was first created to inspire the future innovators to build their skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Answering the program's challenge each year, students innovate a prototype of their idea to tackle their generation's most critical issues like school safety, the opioid crisis and climate change, and become passionate advocates of positive social changes with civic engagement.

Galaxy Upcycling

We care about creating a responsible future, which is why our Galaxy Upcycling program imagined innovative ways of giving new life to old smartphones, reconstructing them into useful IoT devices. One such example is the 'Weather Station' project, in which old Galaxy devices were combined with an air quality measuring sensor, becoming a personal hyper-local atmospheric notice device.

IGNIS Vision and Voice

IGNIS Vision and Voice would be an example of how we are always looking for ways to create positive impact to our communities. Of the many enemies firefighters encounter, darkness and miscommunication are some of the deadliest threats in the smoky labyrinth of live fire. In this regard, IGNIS Vision and Voice, a lightweight, durable thermal imaging camera and a bone-conduction communication device that recognizes voice in extreme conditions, are devices that are designed to not only help the firefighters save the lives of others, but also their own.

GEMS (Gait Enhancing & Motivating System)

We are also working to help change people's lives with GEMS, a wearable robot for rehabilitation treatments that is designed to help people with difficulties in walking, due to weakened muscles, diseases or injuries. It is designed to improve their mobility by assisting them to move.

By having people and society at the center of our innovations, we will continue to make efforts, together with you, towards a better tomorrow.
