Smarter, the makers of FridgeCam acquire Chefling, the inventory management platform and launch a new device line up with advanced deep learning

Smarter, the British company known for its WI-FI connected kitchen appliances, is on a mission to become the most powerful inventory management platform by using a combination of sensors and artificial intelligence. Today it announces a new line of devices which consist of FridgeCam 2, FridgeCam Pro and the all new FoodCam Mini, a compact camera specifically designed to take a picture inside the Fridge and itemise the contents using deep learning computer vision. The new hardware provides better performance including a three-month battery life (FridgeCam 2) and perfectly compliments the features offered by Chefling, the newly acquired Silicon Valley start-up.

Chefling is a software platform that enables users to choose from a catalogue of carefully selected recipes, meal plan and automatically create grocery lists, via an app. The combined product of Chefling and FridgeCam makes for the most advanced inventory management system available for the consumer kitchen. Chefling’s vast database of food items are now matched with real world images, Smarter’s solution to the industry’s challenge over food image recognition. As an example, the database entry for ‘Milk’ has thousands of real-world crowd sourced annotations attributed to the term, making it extremely accurate in automatically detecting a carton of milk wherever it is in the world. This makes it viable to launch in new territories with the algorithm always learning and reapplying knowledge to future use cases. 

We want to connect talents from all over the world

We are iNSYNC from 1/AK Inc. It’s a new way of communicating in dance. We are using AI technology called pose estimation,
which doesn’t require motion capture. You just need your smartphone.

The dance trainer sends to a student a dance movie with their posture data, and then the student practices with apps like KARAOKE. Training like a game. AI supports the student on behalf of the teacher. After copying the trainer’s move, the student requests personal feedback and trainer will resend personal feedback to them.

With a 40 million market, and also a much loved physical activity category, the main way for dance trainers
to earn money has been to teach face-to-face in classrooms and in-person, but iNSYNC allows teachers to earn money
by communicating with their fans wherever they are in the world, taking out regional limitations. We will start with the area of dance.

And in the future, we would like to offer physical movement methods for children and physical movements that
are effective for mental health as needed.

FirmTech Is Making Sexual Wellness About Better Health, Happiness, and Fun

We founded FirmTech with the goal of graphically visualizing men’s sexual health in order to sustain it for a lifetime of lovemaking. With objective data, men can make better decisions about their medications, use of alcohol and drugs, diet, and exercise. Additionally, we want men to enjoy more satisfying sexual experiences. We are proud to be bringing FirmTech’s first-in-the-world sextech innovation to Showstoppers, CES, and mankind.

The Performance Ring helps men with Erectile Dysfunction (ED), those suffering from other sexual issues, and men simply looking to enhance their sexual experience and functioning. The Performance Ring can increase the sensitivity, duration of erections, and intensity of orgasms for the wearer. 

The TechRing includes smart-sensor technology that can be worn overnight and during sex as a diagnostic aid. The complementary easy-to-use phone app securely records and stores data which can then be privately shared with clinicians or partners. Recommended by urologists, the Tech Ring is the world’s first “under” wearable.  A decline in nocturnal erections is commonly an indicator of cardiovascular and other health problems. We like to describe the Tech Ring as “an EKG for men’s most favorite and vital organ.”

Designed by expert bioengineers and urologists, the Tech Ring is now available direct-to-consumer for $275 here. The Performance Ring also can be purchased for $65 hereMore information about FirmTech is available at
