ESD: Tell our readers about your compa- ny. What's your main line of business? HZ: uSave LED has invented the first lighting system that promotes learning based on combining state of the art tech- nology with scientific clinical research. Our patent-pending Adaptive LED Lighting System is known as the WalaLight™. A healthier light that reduces your operating cost while increasing student performance is the core goal of WalaLight. A system that costs nothing up front and pays for itself over a short period of time is the bonus you receive. ESD: Why did uSave LED develop this new product? HZ: The LED Light industry is constant- ly pushing for more efficient products and systems. Think about having an LED lighting system that generates just the right amount of neo-natural daylight and warm light to suit our indoor environ- ment, enabling students to reach peak performance and relaxation. That's exactly what WalaLight, the new patent- pending adaptive LED Lighting Systems, offers today. WalaLightTM Systems are revolu- tionary, adaptive LED lighting systems that feature smart temperature-changing technology, allowing one light to 'do it all.' Hundreds of dimmable LED diodes in each system can be set to provide bright, neo-natural daylight [6500 kelvin], warm light [2500 kelvin] and any level of light in between, all with the convenience of remote control operation. ESD: What's the outlook for this new technology? HZ: We believe that the WalaLight is going to revolutionize the industry, particularly lighting for educational institutions. Studies show that the use of WalaLight technology will improve the focus and subsequent test grades for students. ESD: How does the technology work? HZ: Based on stud- ies, the WalaLight simulates 11am bright sunlight [6500 kelvin] that makes the recipient alert while reducing the mela- tonin production in the brain. It has been known for years that bright 6500 kelvin light in factories can improve the produc- tivity and awareness of workers; not until recently it has been found to do the same for students and subsequently increased test scores [10 percent increase in stan- dardized tests]. The WalaLight further smoothly reduces the kelvin temperature down to as low as 2500 kelvin to stimu- late an individual's melatonin growth to increase relaxation. The pattern devel- oped from these kelvin changes in light- ing promotes a healthy circadian rhythm. The adaptive nature of kelvin changing in an educational facility greatly improves morale, productivity, learning and relax- ation using lighting. ESD: How are sales handled? HZ: WalaLight systems pay for them- selves in one to three years if you paid for the system all up front. Take advan- tage of our $0 down, 100 percent financing that provides you with positive cash flow from the first day. Your monthly electrical and maintenance savings will exceed your monthly finance charge, making your system cash flow positive. ESD: Does the technology come with any certifications or warranties? HZ: WalaLight systems carry a number of government testing lab certifications to validate the quality of their construc- tion, including UL and cUL [pending], RoHs and CE. WalaLight systems are backed with a five-year full replacement warranty. ESD: What is your company's goal with the new technology? HZ: Our goal with the WalaLight is to optimize the indoor environment of all educational institutions to meet the light- ing needs of students while reducing operating cost to ultimately free up more capital for educational purposes.

IMPROVE STEM EDUCATION WITH HOTSEAT HotSeat is an established manufacturer of flight simulators engineered for use in middle schools, high schools, community colleges, universities and FAA magnet schools. The flight simulators are employed to teach a variety of aeronau- tics courses and flight training, which involves teaching a great deal of math, science and physics to the students in an exciting and engaging manner. FMLSF™: a STEM Lab Program for Middle and High Schools Many schools introduce flight simulation to students by starting a Flying Club. The sim- ulators always attract a crowd of both girls and boys who are excited by the idea of fly- ing. As the initial group become "captains," they train the other kids. Recognizing the scope of math and science used in flight preparation, Flying Makes Learning STEM Fun™ (FMLSF) encourages students to solve complex problems using a combina- tion of strategies. Pulling together math, physics and earth science to plan a flight challenges students to solve problems using many common core components. FMLSF has been designed and written by teachers who are also pilots. They have the experi- ence necessary to create lesson plans for math and science activities. FMLSF integrates geometry, trigonometry, physics, meteorol- ogy, geography and topography in flight planning. Teams of stu- dents work together to plan and execute flight plans from a basic level through complex flights. They can fly one of 50 aircraft everywhere on the planet, all geographically and topographically correct, with flight software Prepar3D ® from Lockheed Martin. edustation With classroom space at a premium, edusta- tion ® provides the solution with a portable turnkey simulation station on wheels. Its rugged platform is sized for students and is conducive for visual classroom learning. The premise is "plug and play"; sim- ply roll the edustation into the class- room and insert one plug into the wall. When needed, it can be easily moved to secure storage. HotSeat Flight Simulators Flight simulators are manufac- tured with two to eight screens, giving the user a high fidelity fly- ing experience. Surround sound, with the sub-woofer under the pilot seat, puts you in the cockpit. Prepar3D flight software by Lockheed Martin provides a full func- tion platform for all skill levels. Hands- on instruments as well as an instructor station are available options. For more information, visit www .hotseatsim.com.
