In 2009 – 2010 Katal delivered a custom Landing Pad the was seen in the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games opening ceremony. In 2011 Slen and Coret’s safety innovation garnered them accolades from Popular Science Magazine, naming the Landing Pad to their “Invention of the Year” list and they were invited to speak at TEDx Vancouver on the topic of “Finding Your Passion“.
