Vuzix M100 Smart Glass for Industrial, Medical, Personal Use

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSObviously, I own Google Glass. Vuzix has their very own wearable modern technology in the Vuzix M100 Smart Glass. I had to see exactly what their glass was different from mine. Vuzix has been around for years with wearable technology. Their M720 is a headset you can use to watch video and not disturb people around you. So when they got into the Glass market, it was a perfect fit. Tailored toward commercial or business usage, the M100 snaps into a pair of security eye protections so you could use them and remain safeguarded. The M100 is an Android based wearable that can track occasions, check product, take photos and video, manage calendars, and much more. The M100 also works for personal use. Attach to a pair of glasses and you can use it like any bluetooth headset, adding photo and video support. [cessponsor]

Did Google Buy Nest to Spy on You?

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS Lots to talk about on CES and the Downtown Las Vegas startup project that Tony Hsieh is working on. I will be going back to Vegas for Tech Cocktail next month, which already have plans to really rock it out. CES was another success as we pulled out about 250 videos. Now I have to get to processing those, but my main PC died. Looking for people who will help in getting a new machine for video editing and I have some great sponsor opportunities because of it. TWIGG will start back up next week, as will iPad365.

Tony Hsieh’s Downtown Las Vegas Project: New Startup City?

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSTwo months ago, I got to hear Tony Hsieh of Zappos talk about his new project – the takeover of Vegas City Center and the revitalization of the 500+ blocks of Freemont street for startups. Since I am here for CES, I had some time to visit the park and learn a little more about his idea. What I didn’t expect was open arms and 36 hours of hanging with some new friends. I met Lindsay and Mike at CES. They were pushing PWRglass – a battery for your Google Glass. We did a quick interview and with the bustle of CES, they moved on in the distance. On Sunday, I stopped by Zappos and Container park to find out more on the shops who got approved to be there. Many fashion, some food and a lot more. Kids playing in the playground, music...

Streaming Video: Can You Host it? 0

Streaming Video: Can You Host it?

In today’s Internet, streaming video is important to get your word across. I do it all the time with my shows. It can be done on your own, but should you really do it on your own? With programs like Shoutcast out there, you could easily connect your computer and run video. People would then connect up to the stream and see the video. However, if you have a limited speed internet account then only a couple people can connect to your stream. If you have higher speed internet services  as home service, watch the ISPs Terms of Service. If you are using a lot of bandwith they might inquire why. You could be determined that your use does not fall in the terms of service. Because of that, you could get your Internet shut off. You can use a service like ustream or livestream. They will either...

I am putting Google Glass on Christopher Lloyd 0

Christopher Lloyd (as Doc Emmet Brown) Wearing My Google Glass -CES 2014

During a long day of taking interviews, I had the opportunity to see an actor that not only was part of my pop culture, but also my Moms. An event that became epic for me, as Christopher Lloyd dawned my Google Glass. Christopher Lloyd – known for his iconic roles on the TV show Taxi, then the hit movie franchise “back to the future” was a guest at CES through Gibson. Dawning the Doc Brown persona, Lloyd showed up in the iconic Delorean equipped with Mr. Fusion. As Lloyd was posing for pictures, I realized he was missing something. So I handed him my Google Glass. Someone stated he was officially “assimilated”. Next year well have hover boards and Jaws 19, along with Back to the Future with Google Glass

Living In Digital Times Brings SMB to CES

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSI got to talk with Robin Raskin, a former PC Magazine editor, who wanted to bring lifestyle items to CES. Medium size companies Digital health, aging solutions, sports and more. They represent real people that have real products. For example, Canary is a sensor that will tell you temperature, noise detection, and also allow you to do things like unlock doors for people, see whats going on at the house and more. Another product is called Kurio – a phone for kids that want a smartphone but shouldn’t have a $800 device in which they can text and play games at all hours in the day. Kurio has parental controls so you can say how much they text or play Candy Crush. Interview by Jeffrey Powers of Geekazine

The Freemont Street Experience – Las Vegas, NV

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSYou may have been to the strip in Las Vegas, but have you ever been downtown? Freemont street is another famous area of Vegas and some of the older casinos reside here. I am staying at the Plaza on this trip for CES and decided to show you what happens in this area of Vegas. Binions, Golden Gate, Golden Nugget, Pioneer club and many other older casinos line this street. The street itself dates back to 1905 and any TV show or movie in the 60’s and 70’s would show scenes from this historic street. Freemont street is the host to one of the largest video monitors on the earth. It spans a few blocks and runs videos every half hour. Called the Space Frame, the illuminated roof of the street is a sight to see as it overshadows the bright lights of the...
