As one of the largest international innovation exhibitions in the world, SIIF brought 30 delegations together for 4 days, on November 30 until December 3, 2017.

This tool can incubate turtle eggs and can choose which gender preferred to be hatched, by regulating temperature, air circulation, and humidity in the incubator tool.

Just click the on button then click the gender preferred and done. Maticgator has been registered a patent in LPPM Universitas Brawijaya, it also has been traded to some cities in Indonesia such as Malang Coastal area, Banyuwangi, and Trenggalek.
