This week, Akron Ascent Innovation’s Principal Scientist, Dr. Kevin White, is giving a presentation to the Cleveland Photographic Society (CPS) at their weekly meeting.

In April of this year, the first line of consumer products to use AAI’s ShearGrip® technology was launched at ThePinless.com. The Pinless Collection is a vibrant family of products centered around home décor and organization. These products offer a new solution to an old problem — how to display without damage. With AAI’s new ShearGrip technology, it is possible to have removability and repositionability without sacrificing strength.
Richard Weiner, Legal News Reporter for The Akron Legal News, published an article describing Akron Ascent Innovations’ recent launch of ShearGrip and Pinless brand products. The article is a follow-up to an prior report on AAI’s nascent development of dry adhesive technology and provides a particular focus on the consumer-oriented “Pinless Parenting” blog introduced to demonstrate different uses of Pinless products.
AAI’s recent launch of ShearGrip dry adhesives was featured in The Devil Strip, Akron’s source for local music, art, and culture news, this week. The story was included as part of The Devil Strip’s “Akropreneurs” series, made possible by the Burton D. Morgan Foundation and the Fund for Our Economic Future.
AAI’s own Principal Scientist and Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Kevin White, was interviewed this week for the radio program, “This Week in Tech with Jeanne Destro.” In addition to a rousing discussion between Jeanne and Kevin on AAI, the development of ShearGrip, bio-inspired technology, and the launch of Pinless products, the show includes hackers, cyber attacks on the city of Akron, scary messages through home security systems, pothole-filling drones, and new heater technology.
