ESSNZ SLIM Evo – The evolution from prescription to AR glasses

As the global demand for vision correction continues to grow, especially among younger people, a high-quality Augmented Reality (AR) display must be personalized with vision correction. tooz provides optical engines to augment regular prescription glasses with digital screens, enabling cost-effective, unobtrusive and ready-to-use smart glasses solutions. While maintaining the original function of everyday eyewear – individual vision correction – tooz waveguide optics augment visual information in the wearer’s field of view. The unique curved waveguide lens allows for seamless integration of vision correction, making smart individual eyewear possible and affordable. People with myopia, hyperopia or presbyopia will see both the environment and augmented content clear and sharp.

Smart eyewear is going to look and feel good.

The innovative reference design ESSNZ SLIM Evo represents a significant evolution from previous smart glasses. Building upon the success of the ESSNZ Berlin design, tooz has meticulously refined and enhanced the functionality to create a uniquely light and slim solution. The total weight of this innovative concept is clearly under 40 grams with a battery that can last a full day without charging. It proves that consumer expectations for style, medical-grade prescription optics and visual enhancement can be realized in a valid product offering.

New SmartWitness Dashcams & AI Software Increase Vehicle Safety

smartwitnessIn a series of safety advances for commercial fleets, SmartWitness introduces two new dashboard cameras and a suite of AI solutions that deliver industry-first strategies for preventing and analyzing risky driving behavior.

The SmartWitness AP1 dashcam combines video and telematics in a one-piece, plug-and-play unit for the first time, eliminating the cost, time and space of installing separate devices. This road-facing, 1080p HD camera also offers key safety features, including real-time ADAS audio alerts to prevent imminent accidents. The AP1 is a CES 2022 Innovations Award Honoree.

The SmartWitness KP2 dashcam is the first road-facing camera with a snap-on driver-facing option, enabling fleets to deploy video telematics in stages with virtually no added overhead. The driver-facing module clips into the base unit with no need to change wiring. Fleets can select from multiple real-time ADAS collision avoidance and driver monitoring features to help avert accidents.

The SmartWitness Cloud AI suite is the first AI software that analyzes video for safety violations without an expensive AI-equipped camera. With most AI processing performed in the cloud, the suite includes AIDE (Artificial Intelligence Driving Events), which reduces false reports of unsafe driving behavior; SmartID, which uses facial recognition to identify vehicle drivers; and C.A.R.E. (Computer Analyzed Risk Evaluation), which detects risky driver behavior such as fatigue and distraction.

Indoor Positioning Technology Company Forkbeardä to Showcase uniquely accurate Ultrasound-Based Solution at MWC19 Los Angeles

Norwegian Company Offers Revolutionary Solution for Indoor GPS

Forkbeard Technologies AS will present and demonstrate its revolutionary mobile indoor positioning technology at MWC 2019 (formerly Mobile World Congress), Tuesday through Thursday, October 22-24, at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Forkbeard’s innovative platform leverages industry-standard onboard smartphone audio processing capabilities to deliver down-to-the-centimeter location accuracy with sub-second latency, and always 100% room-level accuracy. Presently in extensive use in medical facilities worldwide, indoor positioning technology impacts dozens of enterprise industries including logistics, warehousing, smart buildings and homes, data centers, manufacturing plants, retail, hospitality, and more.

“The Forkbeard technology platform provides unparalleled accuracy and reliability for indoor positioning of smartphones, tablets and other smart devices running on Android and iOS operating systems,” said Forkbeard CEO Wilfred Booij, Ph.D. “The ability to leverage the existing capabilities of billions of smart devices already on the market enables rapid adoption across multiple market verticals.”

“From simple indoor navigation support to support of contextual location-based workflow and safety solutions, truly accurate indoor positioning technologies will spur accelerated growth in this multibillion-dollar global market,” said Forkbeard’s Senior Vice President of Business Development and Alliances Terry Aasen.

Catalyst Provides the Highest Levels of Protection to the Latest Devices

Mobile devices are an expensive investment.  Early adopters don’t hesitate to shell out upwards of $1000 for a phone because it’s something we’ve all come to rely on in our daily lives.  And as fragile as they are – most of us don’t treat them as such. We get it. People don’t want to cover up their phones.  They’d rather show off their style than put on a bulky protective case, or they leave phones naked or unprotected for fear of losing function.

At Catalyst, we’ve taken all that into consideration with our designs. Catalyst makes the most protective everyday waterproof and impact protection cases on the market. We’ve managed to design cases for Apple, Samsung and Google that are highly protective and don’t ask you to sacrifice style or function. The Catalyst Waterproof cases are 5x more waterproof than any other everyday case on the market and the Catalyst Impact Protection cases are drop proof to 9.9 ft (tested over and over again).

Our designers don’t just build cases.  Their designs enable people to take their phones anywhere, live their adventure, and not worry about damaging or breaking their phones. Even for the latest devices including the iPhone 11 Series, the Samsung Galaxy S10 and the Google Pixel 4 and 4 XL  – we’ve got you covered!
