CES BOOTH
IMPECCA #30932 SOUTH HALL

IMPECCA INTRODUCES THE ALERT BAND AT CES: 
Wearable Early Warning Fatigue Detector for Drivers -- Saves Lives
 
Comfortable, Lightweight Bluetooth Device Monitors Driver’s Brainwaves to Detect Fatigue with Real-Time Alerts Sent to Androids or iPhones to Wake Up Driver
3-5 Minutes Before Falling Asleep – 90% Accurate
 
National Highway Safety Administration Estimates Driver Fatigue Contributes to 100,000 Accidents, 1,550 Deaths, 71,000 Injuries & $1.25 Billion in Losses Annually in the U.S.

 

January 2, 2015, NY, NY -- ImpeccaTM www.impecca.com, a leader of impeccably designed audio, video, digital photo, computer peripherals, and kitchen and home appliances, announced today The Alert Band, a wearable early warning Bluetooth fatigue detector band that attaches to the driver’s forehead to sense fatigue and help prevent accidents.  The Alert Band monitors and analyzes brainwaves, sending real-time notifications and alarms to the driver’s smartphone, family and friends, as well as social networks, 3-5 minutes before the driver begins to doze off and fall asleep.  The notification and alarm are intended to wake him/her up and are designed to save lives. 

The Alert Band uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect to the driver’s iOS or Android smartphone, transferring raw data collected by The Alert Band’s forehead sensors and transmitting the data to its app on the smartphone.  The Alert Band features a smartphone App that uses a numbering system, from 0 to 100 to indicate the user’s fatigue level, sending out an alert when the driver’s fatigue level is too high.  0 indicates fully awake and 100 means you should not be driving, a score of 80 or higher is considered dangerous – and the driver should stop driving and take a rest immediately

Essential for All Drivers: Truck, Taxi, Subway & Bus, Pilots, Sales People, Vacationers, Commuters, & People with Sleep Deficiencies  

User-friendly, Light-weight and comfortable for long periods of use, The Alert Band fatigue detector is essential for all long distance drivers, including truck, taxi, subway, and bus drivers, sales people, vacationers, commuters, and anyone else that operates a vehicle, boat, or plane for long periods of time, including pilots, boaters, and people who have sleep-deficiency related problems, such as insomnia or sleep apnea.   

Your Guardian on the Road -- Impecca Conducted Years of Testing -- Over 90% Accuracy   

According to The National Highway Safety Administration, annually in the U.S., driver fatigue contributes to 100,000 accidents, 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and $1.25 Billion in financial losses.  The Alert Band developer experienced these statistics first hand.  He created The Alert Band after a friend was severely injured in a car accident when the driver who hit him fell asleep behind the wheel. He decided to create a device that alerts drivers in advance when they’re experiencing fatigue.  It also alerts the driver’s family or friends to call or talk to him/her to help stay awake.  The device was created by conducting years of testing with hundreds of participants using a simulator for an over 90% accuracy rate.  Through EEG brain scanning testing, Impecca saw that the area in charge of fatigue is located in the forehead, so they created a user-friendly thin forehead device that, unlike most unwieldy EEG units, easily attaches to the forehead and is easy to use and comfortable to wear for long periods.   

The Alert Band Key Features:

         Wearable fatigue detector monitors driver’s alertness.

         Sends real-time alerts and notifications.

         Light-weight, easily attaches to forehead.

         Comfortable to wear for long periods.

         Made of safe materials.

         User-friendly.

         Uses Bluetooth 4.0 technology to connect to Android or iOS smartphones.

         Includes App which provides a score of 0 (fully awake) to 100 (don’t drive).  80 is considered dangerous, take a rest or stop driving immediately.

         Includes long-lasting rechargeable 20 hour battery.

         Years of testing with hundreds of participants on a simulator.

         Over 90% accurate.  

The Alert Band will be available May 2015 through major retailers, Impecca.com, and online, priced at $249.99.  For more information, see the website www.impecca.com.

Applications Include Controllers, Measurement, Monitoring, 3D Modeling, & More 

Berkeley, CA, October 27, 2014 – BeBop Sensors, Inc. www.bebopsensors.com, the wearable sensor technology company created by musical instrument inventor Keith McMillen and KMI, announced today their first product, the BeBop Wearable Smart Fabric Sensor, the first and only ultra thin wearable smart fabric sensor that measures all aspects of physicality, including bend, location, motion, rotation, angle, and torque.  Employing BeBop’s patented proprietary Monolithic Fabric Sensor Technology, BeBop fabric sensors continuously provide real-time reporting on force, x/y location, bend, twist, size, stretch and motion for markets, including clothing and protective wear, shoes, healthcare devices, athletic equipment, automotive, robotics, aerospace, gaming, biometrics, prosthetics, recycling monitors and appliance markets. 

Smart Fabric Sensor Solutions Provide 3D Maps of Data  

Unlike other wearable sensors on the market today that only measure physiology (EKG, EMG), electrical conductivity or breathing, BeBop measures actual physicality to sense and display 3D maps of data.  Fundamental, tested, and extensible with over a million sensors already in daily use through KMI’s musical instrument products, BeBop’s Monolithic Fabric Sensors integrate sensors, traces, and electronics into a single piece of fabric to provide greater sensitivity, resolution, range of deployment, and robustness -- all with a tiny size.

Created for the rapidly-growing wearable technology market, BeBop sensor technology was created after six years of developing smart fabric sensors for more expressive musical instruments, such as KMI’s popular QuNexus and QuNeo keyboards.  After being approached by numerous companies requesting KMI’s fabirc sensor technology, KMI launched spin-off company BeBop Sensors to fulfill the demand. 

BeBop’s variety of solutions available now for integration into new wearable products:

·        Wearable Controllers:  for sleeves of jackets or shirts to connect to smartphones to answer calls, adjust volume or select songs, all while the smartphone remains in the user’s pocket.

·        1mm Thin Shoe Insoles:  measures gait, pressure, contact style, fit, and flexure of toes and feet.

·        Planar, spherical or cylindrical geometries:  used as pressure maps, head sensors or handles of athletic equipment.

·        Smart Yoga and Gym Mats:  show hand and foot pressure for teaching.

·        Grip Sensors:  detail finger positions for baseball, golf, etc.

·        Car Seat Sensors:  senses airbag fill volume and passenger weight.

·        Car Steering Wheels:  sense driver alertness.

·        Weight Lifting Gloves:  indicate weight and even load.

·        Foot Volume Sensing:  anticipate Diabetic events.

·        Cycling Shoe Inserts:  power meters.

“BeBop is a natural step for KMI, where we have diligently tuned fabrics, geometries, and production processes allowing us to ship over 1 million sensors to some of the most demanding musicians in the world,” said Keith McMillen, Founder, KMI and BeBop Sensors.  “All musical instruments are essentially sensors with forms of acoustic processing attached.  The same care and creativity used to build our instruments will serve well for our non-musical customers as we expand into the wearables market.” 

BeBop OEM Turnkey Offerings Now Available 

BeBop is now offering custom turnkey sensor solutions for OEMs to incorporate into their products, ranging from basic sensors to complete wireless solutions with advanced power management.  Visualization programs for any design with an easily-modified SDK (Software Developer’s Kit) allows manufacturers to create custom apps by choosing from a variety of 2D and 3D representations and colors or by driving the BeBop data into whole new applications.   

“Good designs get the job done, great designs strive for an elegance and simplicity that will make the integration of wearable computing a seamless part of everyday life,” said McMillen.  When McMillen created a foot controller allowing disabled people complete control of a computer, Forbes reported: “In 1984, Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs made the computer mouse mainstream. In 2010, Microsoft introduced the Kinect, allowing computer gamers to control video games by moving their bodies. And on June 21, 2011, Keith McMillen Instruments introduced a gadget that lets you use your computer with your feet.” 

About BeBop Sensors 

BeBop uses smart fabrics to create elegant sensor solutions for OEMs with its patented technology.  Where things or people interact, Bebop sensors comprehend force, location, size, weight, shape and presence across any size, resolution and geometry.  BeBop technology is robust and proven with over a million sensors already in daily use.   Based in Berkeley, California, BeBop Sensors make things knowable for product designers and visionaries.  See demonstrations at the BeBop Sensors website.

SOUNDMATTERS ANNOUNCES PASSING OF FOUNDER DR. GODEHARD GUENTHER

NASA ENGINEER/AUDIO LEGEND

 

Reno, NV, October 20, 2014 – Soundmatters www.soundmatters.com announced today with great sorrow the passing of its founder, NASA engineer and audio legend Dr. Godehard Guenther, on October 16th following an inspiring battle with gastric cancer.  Born on April 9, 1939 in Bochum, Germany, Dr. Guenther earned his undergraduate degree in physics at the University of Göttingen and a PhD in astrophysics at the University of Heidelberg.  He funded his studies with freelance photography and geological survey work for clients around Germany.  Dr. Guenther joined the National Academy of Sciences as a fellow in 1968.  A year later, recruited by Dr. Wernher von Braun, Dr. Guenther emigrated to the United States where he worked with a group of scientists at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, to develop an experiment that was part of America’s first space station.  He left NASA in 1972 to pursue his growing interest in acoustics, dedicating himself to pushing the size and performance boundaries of existing audio equipment.

 

Dr. Guenther was a pioneer in American high fidelity consumer electronics, initially importing Braun loudspeakers to the US, then founding Analog + Digital Systems (a/d/s/) of Wilmington, MA, which later acquired Braun Audio. There he led the development of such innovations as the use of rare earth metals, including samarium cobalt and neodymium in loudspeakers, the first fully digital surround sound system, and the first in-wall loudspeaker.

 

Having early-on identified the importance of multimedia, Dr. Guenther founded Soundmatters in 1998 (Reno, NV) with the desire to shrink both the size and cost of true hi-fi audio. Under the Soundmatters brand, he introduced the first hi-fi quality all-in-one surround system, and in 2008, the first pocket-sized Bluetooth stereo loudspeaker widely acclaimed good enough for audio purists -- a product that was soon named, along with the iPhone, as one of the Top Ten Gadgets of the Year by TIME magazine.  His innovative work at Soundmatters also included projects for such companies as Logitech, Viewsonic, Roku, IGT and most recently Jawbone, to name a few.  Dr. Guenther was truly an engineer’s engineer.  Brent Butterworth, writing for Sound & Vision, noted that he “enjoys a reputation among audio manufacturers as a sort of mysterious wizard of sound. Honest-to-goodness, I’ve actually heard his name mentioned by speaker-company presidents in hushed, awed tones.”

 

Dr. Guenther was a lover of music from every era, a gifted pianist, a refined oenophile, and an aficionado of Chinese and Japanese culture, cuisine, and art. He will be remembered for his unique combination of brilliance and humor.  He inspired his family, friends and colleagues with his zest for life, his wanderlust, his imagination, and his seemingly inexhaustible output of innovative, often groundbreaking audio designs.  He will be missed by many, but his legacy lives on through the inspiration he provided and through his remarkable engineering achievements -- including many yet to be announced.  He is survived by his wife, his three children and seven grandchildren.  In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Social Service Fund for Needy Patients, Massachusetts General Hospital, 100 Cambridge Street, Suite 1310, Boston, MA 02114.

Inspired from Movie Studios -- Now Available for Your Tablet 

Friction articulating arms are common in the movie industry to set up monitors in any angle while filming to allow directors to see what is being filmed without having to look directly into the camera lens.  iStabilizer took this movie studio articulating arm concept and designed an arm specifically for tablets to allow users to be able to setup and rotate the device in any angle on any desk, tripod, or other surface to easily manipulate and view the screen while on a secure arm thereby taking tablet use to a whole other level of creativity.

The tabArm can be rotated in any angle for a variety of uses:

GET FOCUSED & RELAX WITH ZEN180 MEDITATION & BRAIN ENHANCEMENT APP 

Features 3D Binaural Beat & Brain Enhancement Audio Technologies for Deep Meditation to Reduce Stress 

New Meditation App Provides a More Focused, Creative, Awakened, Relaxed, & Romantic Mind for iPhone, iPad & iPod touch 

Free Zen180 App with In-App Pack Deal for $1.99 Download in iTunes 

September 8, 2014, Park City, UT – Zen180 www.zen180.com launched today the free Zen180 App to get focused, creative, and help with the everyday stresses of living.  Available immediately through the iTunes store at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/zen180/id902226237?ls=1&mt=8, the Zen180 app provides background audio that you can listen to while meditating, reading, studying, doing homework, or trying to relax.  The Zen180 app features 5 cognitive enhancing audio programs:  FOCUSED, CREATIVE, AWAKENED, RELAXED and ROMANTIC Mind.  The main FOCUSED audio track is free, with the other 4 tracks priced at $.99 each or $1.99 for all 4.  With Zen180, you can dramatically increase your mental and learning abilities, creativity, happiness, focus and concentration.  The app accomplishes this with its exclusive 3D binaural beats to mimic the desired state of mind to help you meditate on a deeper level with brain enhancement audio technology to augment the 5 natural brain wave patterns: Alpha, Beta, Delta, Theta and Gamma.  

Experience the Benefits of Deep Meditation in Minutes  

The Zen180 audio app allows you to experience all the benefits of deep meditation in a matter of minutes.  Just select the track for the specific state of mind you are trying to achieve (focused, creative, awakened, relaxed or romantic) and the time period (from 5 minutes to 30 minutes), put on your headphones and tap “start session” (Zen180 recommends you always use stereo headphones, since the app will not work properly with regular speakers).  The idea is to listen to the audio track with headphones while you are trying to focus on a task or simply to meditate.  You will notice how much better you can focus on your work or meditation while using the app. 

Helps with Writer’s Block 

Zen180’s CREATIVE Mind track can help creative people, such as writers and musicians, overcome the dreaded “writer’s block” or other creativity hang-ups and free the mind for new ideas and directions.  The AWAKENED Mind track helps students, frequent travelers, workaholics, and party animals pep up after a red-eye flight or late night out so they are ready to work the next day.  The ROMANTIC Mind track will bring you closer to loved ones and the RELAXED Mind track helps you completely relax and let go of problems when over-stressed.  “Scientists study meditation and doctors recommend it to help reduce stress.  Millions of Americans practice it every day. Why?  Because meditation works.  Zen180 unleashes your mind’s potential,” said Noah Rasheta, President, Zen180. 

Zen180 App Features:

·        5 cognitive enhancing audio programs:

o       FOCUSED Mind:  for reading, studying or writing.

o       CREATIVE Mind:  for brainstorming, creating new music, art, or writing.

AMBIENT DESIGN LAUNCHES ARTRAGE 4.5 WITH 64-BIT SUPPORT FOR FASTER PAINTING, LARGER CANVASES, AND MORE COMPLEX PROJECTS

Free Upgrade for All Registered Users of ArtRage 4 --
Realistic and Easy to Use Painting Application
 

August 14, 2014, San Francisco, CA – Ambient Design (www.artrage.com), the award-winning creator of realistic art software for Mac, Windows, iPad and iPhone, announces the launch of ArtRage 4.5, a major upgrade to their popular painting software for Mac and Windows.  This update is free for all registered users of ArtRage 4, available for immediate download from the ArtRage Members Area at: http://members.artrage.com, with upgrade discounts for owners of previous versions of ArtRage.  Full information can be found at:  http://www.artrage.com/artrage-4/free-update.  

ArtRage 4.5 features a 64-bit engine for Mac OS X and Windows, which provides speed improvements and enables working on larger canvases and more complex projects.  ArtRage 4.5 also includes canvas grid overlays, stylus tilt support for the pencil tool, a new font picker, multi-touch gesture support for Mac OS X, and more (see the list below). 

New in ArtRage 4.5: 

         64-Bit Support: ArtRage 4.5 now supports 64-bit processors on Windows and OS X, which means you can work on significantly larger file sizes and canvases and at much faster speeds.  32-bit processors are also supported from the same installer.

         Canvas Grid Overlay:  highly customizable grid overlays are available on the Canvas and Reference Images to help you map out your paintings and designs in pixels or proportions.  Users can choose between a non-interactive guide or have lines “Snap To Grid.”

         Live Pencil Tilt: the Pencil Tool now supports Tilt input from your stylus to adjust the angle of the pencil when sketching on devices with tilt support, such as the Wacom Cintiq or Intuos Pro. 

Other Tweaks and Improvements:

·        Improved Font Picking.

·        OS X multi-touch gestures for MacBook touchpads and tablets with touch support, such as the Wacom Cintiq.

·        Faster Undo, Redo, and Transform operations.

·        Manual sorting of Toolbox objects and Color Samples.

·        Ability to move and duplicate resources between categories. 

ArtRage 4.5 System Specifications:

·        Compatible with 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows Vista, 7, and 8.

·        Compatible with 32 and 64 bit versions of Mac OS X 10.6 or later.

·        Interface runs in English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, and Russian (manual in English).

·        Price: $49.90 U.S. 

ArtRage 4.5 is Compatible with Industry Standards 

ArtRage is the easiest way to create works of art that look and feel like their real world counterparts, avoiding the traditional computer generated look with a paint simulation that captures the nuances of real expressive media. Anybody who spent a few hours in Adobe Photoshop or Autodesk Sketchbook should quickly pick up familiar functions in ArtRage like layers, opacity, blend modes, plugins, selections, stencils, rulers, transforms, grid tools and scripting. More important, anybody who has picked up a real paintbrush or pencil will feel at home with the artistic tools provided. Free trial version can be tried out at www.artrage.com. 

ArtRage 4.5 Users and Artists Quotes: 

“I can definitely say that I’ve felt the benefit of improved speed, and have found the ability to drag items around in the toolbox to reorganize at will very useful.  I’ve found it particularly handy for tinkering with sets of color samples, when you need to add a new color and want it to fit in,” - Nick Harris, Nickillus.com

“I am absolutely delighted with the improved Font Selection process… I am finding the grid really useful as well.  As a lover of Art Nouveau style borders, I can see where to work within the grid, then use the symmetry tool to create one in a flash, which I am having such fun doing. ‘Snap to’ on the grid with Ink Pen Smoothing is also useful to get those sleek controlled sweeps,” - Robyn Rinehart, http://robynrinehart.blogspot.com/

“For me, as a teacher, instructor, the ‘grid’ is a very powerful resource in many ways.  It allows students to have a baseline to establish comparative dimensions… I use  ArtRage 100% for layers combining with manipulated photos and texts published in ArtRage,” - Professor Damasocl. 

 “64-bit support is one of my favorite aspects of the 4.5 upgrade,” - David K Manuel, davidkmanuel.com.

Lightweight Monopod Collapses to 1 Foot for Portability -- Extends Over 3 Feet for Easy Reach & Unique Angles  

The  Monopod works with virtually all smartphones, Point-of-View (POV) action cameras, and other digital cameras and camcorders, including the GoPro, Countour, Drift, light camcorders, iPhones, Androids, Blackberrys, and iPods.  At only about 1 foot when collapsed weighing ½ lb. for easy portability when traveling, outdoors, and at events, the Monopod extends to over 3 feet for amazing selfies and unique angles, such as feet-level video, overhead, around corners and more.  The included adjustable universal iStabilizer Mount™ can also be used on any tripod with a standard ¼ x 20” camera.

Tiny at only 1.38” x 3.56” x 0.38” and weighing 1 oz, the Shutter Remote works with the device’s included camera app or with any other app that uses the volume button to trigger the shutter.  Compatible with all iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch (Android coming soon), the Shutter Remote also works with all other Bluetooth Apple products (Macbook, iMac, Mac Mini).

Selfies Taken from a Distance Can Make You Look More Attractive & Trustworthy 

In addition to taking great selfies, the iStabilizer Bundle can help you take photos further away from your face, which can make you look more attractive, trustworthy and intelligent.  According to researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), close-up photo subjects taken too closely are judged to look less trustworthy, less competent, and less attractive.  “Until now, one factor has never been investigated:  the distance between the photographer and the subject. According to a new study, this turns out to make a difference.”  See Science Daily article at: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/09/120926153030.htm?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+sciencedaily+%28ScienceDaily%3A+Latest+Science+News%29 

“The iStabilizer Monopod and Shutter Remote Bundle is a great tool for the amateur or professional photographer using their smartphone for video and photo selfies.  No more close up, in your face, half-head missing self-portraits.  The bundle provides the reach to get to that perfect angle to capture the moment in its entirety,” said Noah Rasheta, Founder & CEO, iStabilizer.

Available immediately from http://www.istabilizer.com/products/istabilizer-monopod, the iStabilizer Monopod and Shutter Remote Bundle is priced at: $59.95 (normally $74.90 when purchased separately.)  For more information, see www.istabilizer.com, Monopod: http://www.istabilizer.com/products/istabilizer-monopod.

IDEVICES® AND JENNIE-O BRAND MAKE PREPARING PERFECTLY COOKED TURKEY EASIER THAN EVER FOR BUSY COOKS

Brands Partner to Introduce Innovative Kitchen Tool to Ensure Safe, Delicious Family Meals 

Avon, CT and Willmar, MN, August 11, 2014 — iDevices® http://idevicesinc.com/, a leading product and app development company specializing in the Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi connected market, is teaming up with Jennie-O http://www.jennieo.com/, a brand on a mission to show the world how easy it is to eat well with turkey. The brands are coming together to help make it easier than ever for busy cooks to prepare safe, delicious turkey meals with iDevices’ Bluetooth® Smart thermometers, the iDevices Kitchen Thermometer and Kitchen Thermometermini http://idevicesinc.com/kitchen-thermometer/

Beginning in August, consumers will have the opportunity to receive a discount on iDevices Kitchen Thermometers when they purchase select JENNIE-O® turkey products, with a valuable $10-off on-pack product coupon. The iDevices Kitchen Thermometers allow cooks to remotely monitor the temperature of meat and eliminate the need to hover over the oven or grill while perfectly cooking turkey to 165º F, making it easier to multitask on hectic weeknights or while entertaining guests. 

Select ‘Turkey’ in iDevices Kitchen Thermometer for Fully Cooked, Tender Turkey 

By selecting the ‘Turkey’ preset in the free iDevices Connected app at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/idevices-connected/id682656390?mt=8, iDevices Kitchen Thermometer users can monitor the temperature of their food via Bluetooth technology from up to 150 feet away. The user will even receive an alert through the app once turkey is fully cooked and ready to take out of the oven or off the grill. Thanks to these helpful features, cooks can focus on preparing other parts of a meal without worrying about under- or over-cooking its centerpiece.  Using iDevices’ Bluetooth meat thermometers to fully cook poultry to 165°F not only ensures a safe dining experience, but also helps home cooks achieve the perfect, never-dry tenderness the whole family will love — and it has never been easier. 

“We are proud to partner with Jennie-O to help educate consumers about the importance of food safety and how to perfectly cook nutritious JENNIE-O® turkey with the help of an iDevices Kitchen Thermometer,” said Lianne Kersey, marketing manager, iDevices, LLC. 

Jennie-O puts the highest priority on ensuring its customers receive a high-quality, delicious product. The brand strives to provide consumers with the knowledge to properly prepare and cook turkey and offer their families nutritious meals. 

“Our latest partnership with iDevices helps us to provide busy cooks the information they need to prepare great-tasting meals for their families and add a new level of convenience to their cooking routine,” said Jen Ehresmann, director of marketing at Jennie-O. “An easy-to-use meat thermometer is a simple, hassle-free tool that can help ensure turkey is fully cooked to a delicious 165°F each and every time.”  

Food Safety Tips for Delicious Turkey Meals 

Jennie-O and iDevices offer these five easy rules for safe cooking: clean, separate, cook, chill and don't forget—enjoy! 

1)      Clean – safety begins with a clean cooking space.  Use warm, soapy water to wash anything raw poultry touches, including cutting boards, plates or serving platters, countertops and other surfaces, food thermometers, grilling utensils — and most importantly — your hands.

2)      Cook – always fully cook poultry to destroy any bacteria that could cause foodborne illness. Using a meat thermometer is the most accurate way to determine when meat is ready to enjoy. Cook poultry to at least 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer, such as the iDevices Kitchen Thermometer, to ensure a safe and delectable dining experience.

3)      Separate – Use separate cutting boards for poultry, meat, seafood and vegetables to avoid the spread of bacteria. Store raw poultry in sealed containers to make sure juices don’t contaminate other foods. Never reuse a marinade that has previously been used on raw poultry. Instead, create a fresh marinade for each new batch of meat.

4)      Chill – When storing raw poultry, set your refrigerator to 40°F or lower. Never thaw poultry at room temperature or on the counter. Thaw in the refrigerator in sealed containers and keep it no more than two to three days before cooking. Refrigerate leftovers within two hours of cooking and eat within one to two days.

5)      Enjoy! – Following these simple food safety rules makes it easy to achieve the best possible taste for a wholesome meal the entire family will enjoy.

Turn Any Image Into an iPhone Case With This Handy Gadget

By Liana Bandziulis
07.24.14

The Case Maker Pro lets you change your iPhone case as easily as slapping another sticker on your laptop. Take a magazine page or photo and stick it into the CaseMaker—essentially, a giant hole puncher the size of an iPhone—and clamp down. Slip the photo into the clear case and snap it onto your phone. Repeat until your printer runs out of ink, or all your magazines have iPhone-shaped holes in them.

The case itself, made of dual-injection polycarbonate and silicone with clear insets on the back and edges, is elegant and slim in its own right, and fits the phone securely. The solid metal CaseMaker slices through most paperlike substances. Showcase your photos or drawings; recycle a Trader Joe’s bag or some shiny wrapping paper; make art out of old shopping lists or maps. You can even keep a couple sheets stacked inside the case, for quick swaps between work time and play time.

Right now, it’s only available for the iPhone 5/5s. At $50 for the CaseMaker and one case, it’s a commitment, although you can get more cases separately if you don’t mind sharing the punch tool.

NBC-TV on CaseMaker Pro by Molly O’Brien

Why not make your own iPhone case with the CaseMaker Pro.
 

Tech This Out: Make your own iPhone case
Posted: Jun 30, 2014 12:22 PM EST

By Molly O'Brien
Having a cell phone case is almost a necessity and if you like a little of your personal style to show through, check out the CaseMaker Pro. It's a customizable iPhone case maker.

Well, sort of.

In the box, you'll get a plastic case that will fit around the iPhone 5 or iPhone 5S and the photo cropper. The photo cropper is heavy duty-made with 14 blades. Basically it's a hole puncher in the shape of the iPhone case.

It’s a very simple concept. You can put anything into the photo cropper. A picture, newspaper clipping, post card, print outs -- whatever you're heart desires.

You place a picture in the photo cropper and then firmly push down, the stamp cuts the outline of an iPhone and a hole for the camera and flash. Bingo!

You can use any type of pictures -- friends, family, pets, sports teams, a company logo, a simple pattern, holiday themes. What about a Throwback Thursday case? The options really are endless.

Once you get your picture cut the way you want it, place it in the case and then the picture will appear on the back of your iPhone.

But here's the thing, you have to play around to get your picture cut just right. If you want something centered, or lined up it might be a good idea to crop a picture before printing. And you might want to print a few extra pictures.

It really takes practice, or you might get lucky and crop it perfectly the first time.

If you are a big scrap booker, you'll definitely like this.

The downside of the CaseMaker Pro, they only have one size and one model, and that's for the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S.

The product is brand new, so no word on if they'll have any other case sizes coming out.

You can find the CaseMaker Pro for just under $60. Additional cases cost $20.

KONNET CARE VISION PROTECTIVE SHIELD
FOR SMARTPHONES & TABLETS
FILTERS OUT 99.99% OF UV LIGHT WITH HIGHEST TRANSPARENCY
 
PROTECTS EYES FROM HARMFUL UV LIGHT THAT CAN CAUSE CATARACTS, MYOPIA, CHLOASMA, MACULAR DEGENERATION & HEADACHES
 
Exclusively Distributed by Interworks
Patent-Pending UV Blue Light Deflection Technology
Highest Transparency with Scratch, Drop & Glare Protection
for iPhones, iPads & Other LED Displays
 

July 14, 2014, Los Angeles, CA – Interworks Unlimited www.interworks-usa.com, creator and distributor of cutting-edge gaming and consumer electronics products, announced today the Konnet Care Vision Protective Shield that protects your eyes from 99.99% of ultraviolet (UV) light with new advanced Patent-Pending UV Blue Light Deflection Technology with fiber coating that deflects UV blue light so it does not penetrate your eyes as you stare into devices, shielding your eyes from harmful UVt MAX that can cause cataracts, Myopia (near-sightedness), Macular Degeneration, headaches, Chloasma (skin pigmentation), wrinkles, dry red eyes and more.  Exclusively distributed by Interworks Unlimited, Inc., the Konnet Care Vision Protective Shield features the highest transparency available on the market so there isn’t a visible film on your device.  The Konnet Care Vision Protective Shield also delivers standard scratch, drop, and glare protection for devices, including iPhone 5, iPad, Galaxy, and others smartphones and tablets. 

UV Protection -- Far More Important than Anti-glare, Anti-scratch, or Even Tempered Glass 

Professionals in the fields of light energy and vision have known for years about the hazards that ultraviolet light presents to ocular health.  With the prevalence of blue-light LED displays found in smartphones, tablets and other devices and with consumers using these devices longer and more frequently, scientists are studying the long term effects and are offering solutions for maintaining ocular health.  The Vision Protective Shield is an essential solution available to protect eyes from harmful UV emissions from the screens of all electronic devices.  “The Vision Protective Shield is far more important than anti-glare, anti-scratch, or even tempered glass, because you can always replace your phone’s screen, but you can never replace your eyes,” Eric Lu, President,  Interworks.  “Our shield also reduces glare and is actually softer to the eyes to look at.  Even the lighting from my iPhone is not as intense as before.”  

Vision Protection Shield Used in Education and Sports 

Children, in particular, are at a high-risk to develop Myopia because of the extended use of smart devices in school and at home.  25% - 50% of children develop Myopia in American and European countries, with up to 80% of children from Asian countries developing near-sightedness.   To combat this, schools such as Taiwan’s Education and Science (in cooperation with the Ministry of Education) and Hong Kong International School have begun bundling the Vision Protection Shield on tablets used at school, with positive feedback from teachers and children alike.  In addition to students, clear vision is also extremely important to athletes.  Because of this, the entire NBA Hong Kong organization now uses the shield with all their LED devices.  “I feel a big difference and my eyes are much more comfortable after using the Vision Protection Shield,” said Ritchie Lai, Vice President, Event Management, NBA Hong Kong.   

See more info on the UV light hazards at: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3081800/  

Vision Protective Shield Features:

·        Filters out 99.99% of 380-400 nm UVt MAX emitted by the screens of mobile and computer devices.

The iDevice Kitchen Thermometer ($80, idevicesinc.com) uses Bluetooth technology combined with a helpful app that not only allows you to monitor your meal without lifting the grill’s hood and compromising the cooking temperature, but also let’s you wander away and enjoy the party with your guests!

So how does it work?

The kitchen thermometer comes with two prongs that you insert into your meat—either into two different cuts or, like we did, one into your meal and one to measure the ambient temperature. Next, you download the free app to your smartphone and set your alerts. The app comes loaded with pre-set temperature ranges so novices can cook their meat completely and safely, but also allows you to customize your own alerts.

The app alerts you—like a trusted sous chef—when the ideal internal temperature is reached and, voilà, dinner is served!

There’s also a handy social media integration feature on the app which allows you to share your like-worthy cooking prowess to Facebook.

But lest we rely on nifty-sounding bells and whistles alone, we put the iDevice Kitchen Thermometer to the test: smoking a brisket.

The all-day process of smoking a brisket is notoriously difficult. One of the keys to a mouthwatering, butter-soft brisket is a steady cooking temperature. With the iDevice Kitchen Thermometer, we were able to set our temperature range and walk away, letting our iPhone monitor the progress for us. No more lifting the lid to constantly check the brisket’s progress—especially in the last hour or so to make sure it doesn’t overcook!—and exposing the meat to a gush of cooler air.

Better yet, we were free to mingle and clink glasses with our backyard guests while the smoker worked its magic.

The results? A delicious BBQ and a very happy, un-frazzled chef.

There is no confusing The Great Kat with anyone else...

A fire-storm of blond hair whipping around a guitar that's smoking from ferocious fingers and a whole lot of fury. A graduate of the elite Juilliard School, The Great Kat is best known and loved (and sometimes feared) for her speed metal interpretations of the most famous and well-loved pieces of classical music.

One thing is for sure, once The Great Kat has come on your radar you will never, ever forget her. Claiming to be both God and Satan, The Great Kat is all rock star, and a little bit dominatrix, but all in a fun and bombastic metal kind of way.

Her new video for the “William Tell Overture” is currently burning up iTunes and is something that every metal head and classical music lover needs to see. AXS.com recently got the chance to speak with her royal highness of the guitar, and even sans the guitar - The Great Kat never disappoints or fails to leave quite the impression.

Tech This Out: Microlab FC60BT Wireless Sound System
Posted: Jun 16, 2014 12:16 PM
By Molly O'Brien

Microlab introduces an innovative high quality speaker meant for convenient listening.

If you like options the FC60BT might be for you. No, it's not the catchiest name but with crystal clear audio, you won't care what it's called.

No portable speaker here. This set is for your home and can be used with multiple devices.

Microlab developed the three-piece speaker system with an advanced sound experience in mind. You'll get the 8-inch subwoofer with built in amp, an RF remote and two stereo speakers. These are different from normal speakers because of the way they're designed. The back end is open and that means you won't get those distorted sounds or vibrations.

The subwoofer is big, but it's loud and proud. You connect the two speakers in the back and you'll see knobs to adjust sound and bass manually. You can also do this with the remote. You can connect TVs, DVD players, laptops, basically any media device with a hard wire connection just like any other sound system or speaker set.

Here's what's different: there's a wireless connection. That means you can watch TV shows, movies and listen to music on your tablet or smartphone from across the room. And still you get great sound. Just connect your with Bluetooth or NFC. Let's face it, speakers on your laptop and tablet are not up-to-par. On many portable speakers you’ll lose audio quality with a Bluetooth connection. Not the case here. I find that refreshing.

The Bluetooth range is 150 feet.

The RF remote works from any place in your room. It has a 360-degree range and you don't have to point it at the subwoofer. If your device is NFC capable you just tap it to the remote.

The high quality sound and handy remote come at a price. Microlab's FC60BT costs $449.

For the techies out there, here’s a list of the specs from the company:

2.1 subwoofer system with 2 see-through stereo satellite speakers.
Patented HC2D Technology (High Clarity Close Distance) for crystal clear sound with full resolution range when listening at close or from a far distance.
Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology connects to smartphones and tablets.
NFC (Near Field Communication) function quickly connects to Android, Windows and Blackberry devices without pairing -- just tap the device on the remote control's NFC logo for instant music.
Powerful integrated 8-inch bass subwoofer with built-in amplifier.
2 stereo enclosure-less satellite SQ speakers for no harmonic distortions or vibrations.
Digital signal processor for clear HD audio sound.
Connects to most media players with included stereo 3.5mm jack.
360 degree RF remote control for Bluetooth, NFC, track, input, volume, and bass controls that works from any angle in the room.
1-inch tweeter and 5-inch midrange set up in tandem for perfectly clear sound.
EQ parameter for automatically balanced sound.
Quick and easy plug n' play set up in a few minutes.
Amplifier output: 105 watt RMS.
Tweeter: 6 Ohm, Midrange: 8 Ohm.

Microlab FC60BT:

Microlab, one of those innumerable Chinese outfits operating out of ShenZhen, is a dependable name in portable electronics. They've just dropped an appropriately Zen-looking trio of multimedia speakers, all dressed in virginal white: the FC60BT Bluetooth/NFC-2.1 system, comprised of a muscular 8-inch subwoofer and two see-through satellites. Its fat, boomy bass is a must for adrenaline-pumping gamers, while music and movie fans will appreciate the apple-crisp high-end. There’s something for every ear, but Microlab is taking dead aim at the man-cave market. Comes with a 360-degree remote control, meaning Dad needn't come out of the fetal sports-watching position to mute commercials or jack up the bass. (www.microlab-global.com, $400 to $449)

iDevices® Releases iBeacon™ Support For Broadcom® WICED™
Smart Chips and Its Own Fully Developed iDevices Beacon
 
iDevices Enables iBeacon Market from Multiple Angles to Lead Future of Customer Engagement
 

Avon, CT, May 21, 2014 – iDevices, LLC, www.iDevicesinc.com, the premier app-enablement company and creator of the iGrill®, announced today that its custom software stack for Broadcom WICED Smart chips now supports iBeacon technology.  In addition, the company has launched a line of iDevices Beacon, fully developed wireless beacon devices with integrated Broadcom WICED Smart (Bluetooth Smart enabled) chips and iDevices firmware. 

iBeacon Support for Developers 

In August 2013, iDevices announced the release of its custom module and software stack for Broadcom Bluetooth Smart chips. The company is now offering the support of iBeacon functionality to engineers using the Broadcom WICED Smart BCM20732 or BCM20736 system-on-chip (SoC).  iBeacon is a technology Apple introduced with iOS 7 that uses Bluetooth Low Energy and geofencing to provide apps with a whole new level of micro-location awareness, such as trail markers in a park, exhibits in a museum, or product displays in stores 

iDevices’ CTO and VP of Engineering, Shawn Monteith says, “The enormous rush of interest paired with our clear competitive advantage has encouraged iDevices to emerge itself in the vast opportunity that iBeacon technology presents to not only retail but so many other applications.” 

Through the addition of iBeacon support for Broadcom Bluetooth Smart SoCs, developers now have easy access to micro-locating functionality.  The iDevices module development kit is available for purchase here. 

iDevices Beacon Will Transform Customer Interactions 

iDevices Beacon, now for pre-sale on the iDevices website, can be strategically placed anywhere in a physical space to broadcast radio signals to smart devices with proximity of up to 150 feet. Consumers with an associated app installed on their phone will receive personalized micro-location based notifications when they walk within proximity of the Beacon.  

The most frequent use cases to date occur in retail locations and are used for in-store analytics, proximity marketing and contactless payments. For example, upon entering a store, a customer receives a welcome message. While browsing through clothing racks, the retailer sends highly targeted product information, sizing availability, reviews, offers, etc.  Finally, when the customer is ready to make a purchase, the retailer turns the shoppers’ smart device into a POS system.  

The applications of Beacon are endless and are only just being uncovered throughout the industry. Clothing stores, public transport, banks, grocery stores, hospitals, sports stadiums and museums, the list goes on.  

One particular application in which iDevices will be using the technology is at the Consumer Electronic Show in January 2015.  Lianne Kersey, iDevices’ Marketing Manager, says, “We will be using iBeacon Technology to its fullest at CES 2015 by placing our own Beacon throughout our 40’x45’ booth and firing notifications off for product information, giveaways and exclusive content.” 

The iDevices Beacon, now available for pre-sale, is a small USB complete with a battery pack requiring 2 AAA batteries (for an average battery life of 3-4 months).  The USB can also be plugged into a standard Apple wall adapter for continued battery life.  

Initial features of the iDevices Beacon include:

·        Multiple power options.

·        Compact size.

·        150 foot Bluetooth Smart range.

·        Simple app integration.

·        Authentication.

·        Security options. 

The iDevices Beacon is set to ship in Q3 of 2014. Pre-order your iDevices Beacon today for $49.99 (complete with a battery pack) at http://idevicesinc.com/beacon.

ARTRAGE FOR IPAD WINS 2014 PARENTS’ CHOICE GOLD AWARD 

Wins for Digitally Imitating Professional Artist’s Tools & Paints
Creates 3 Dimensional Art Realism for Kids without the Mess

Special Pricing for Annual NAEA Convention (National Art Educators Association) Previews ArtRage for Android

March 29, 2014, San Francisco, CA – Ambient Design www.artrage.com, the leading award-winning creator of realistic art painting software for Mac, Windows, iPad and iPhone, announced today that ArtRage for iPad is the winner of the 2014 Parents’ Choice Gold Award for the Best Mobile Apps at: http://www.parents-choice.org/product.cfm?product_id=32397&StepNum=1&award=aw. Available immediately at the Apple iTunes Store, ArtRage for iPad is the most realistic art app and software helping kids become creative on the go without the mess. 

ArtRage was chosen for the Parents’ Choice Award because it does a “remarkable job of imitating not only the professional tools and paints of artists, but also the 3 dimensional way artistic mediums react and build on a canvas,” said Parents’ Choice.  “For example, a hunk of oil paint can be squeezed out of a tube of paint and it sits realistically on your canvas waiting to be spread and molded with great accuracy using a palette knife, brush, or any of the other tools.  Any tool that is chosen can be manipulated using a finger or a stylus,” they concluded. 

ArtRage Exhibiting at National Art Educators Association – Previewing ArtRage for Android 

ArtRage will be exhibiting at the NAEA 2014, the annual convention of the National Art Educators Association, March 29-31, 2014 in San Diego.  At booth #632, the latest versions of ArtRage will be shown for Windows, Mac, iPad and iPhone and the upcoming version of ArtRage for Android will also be previewed.    

Parents’ Choice Champions Importance of Quality Children’s Media   

The Parents’ Choice Awards is the nation’s oldest nonprofit program recognizing quality children’s media to help parents and caregivers of all achievements and backgrounds make informed decisions about which new products are right for their children.  For more than thirty-three years, the Parents’ Choice Awards have honored the best products for children:  books, toys, music, storytelling, magazines, software, videogames, television and websites.  With a panel of educators, scientists, performing artists, librarians, parents, and even kids themselves, the Parents’ Choice Awards identify the very best products for children of different ages, backgrounds, skills and interest levels.   

“We are honored to win the Parents’ Choice Award for the best mobile products that entertain and teach with flair, stimulate imagination and inspire creativity,” said Matthew Fox Wilson, Creative Director and Co-founder, Ambient Design.  “ArtRage is a great way to get kids, teens, and adults of all ages interested in art and developing their creativity.  ArtRage is used in thousands of schools and dozens of museums to teach art.” 

Let Your Inner Van Gogh Out with ArtRage for iPad  

ArtRage for iPad lets you become a mobile digital artist on your iPad, providing the experience of actually “painting” digitally on an iPad canvas with oil paints that smear and blend, and watercolors that flow together to create soft, wet gradations, just as they would in a traditional art studio.  “If you’ve always dreamed of putting paint to canvas and letting your inner Van Gogh out, then you should check out the ArtRage app for iPad,” said Parents’ Choice.  “Whether aged 4 or 12 or 50 years old, if you are feeling creative, then you can summon that urge using this great $5 natural media painting app. It models real-world paints, brushes, tools, and canvases to let you paint, draw, blend, and create on screen.”

·        Realistic color blending.

·        Paint Strokes:  High quality rendered strokes show the amount of paint on the canvas.

·        Oil Brush and Airbrush:  With thickness and smearing.

New York Times Features iDevices iGrill2 by Jesse McKinley!
 

The iDevices Bluetooth meat thermometer ($39.99 to $99.99) was among the consumer gadgets, gizmos and kitchen, bath and living-room accessories on display at the International Home and Housewares Show, the four-day extravaganza held earlier this week in Chicago.

Interacting with your food was the idea behind the products made by a Connecticut firm called iDevices, which is committed to using smartphones to save America from undercooked pork and desiccated turkey. The iGrill 2 (available in May for about $100) is a thermometer that uses four small probes to allow users to control how their meat is done — rare, medium, etc. — and then sends them a cellphone alert when the meat is ready. (Note: You do not place your smartphone in the oven with the thermometer.)

The iGrill 2 was in the show’s Wired and Well expo, along with other high-tech innovations.

The One Bluetooth Speaker to Buy
Men’s Journal Selects foxL DASH7 as “The One Bluetooth Speaker to Buy” - MJ Approved
FoxL Dash 7

Bluetooth speakers haven't flooded the market – they've drowned it, crowding physical store shelves and online outlets with a seemingly endless supply of devices, most from little-known brands. Take Soundmatters, for example, and its inexplicably named FoxL Dash 7, which doesn't have the grabby design of some competitors, but carries a premium price tag.

And yet, this has been our go-to Bluetooth speaker for months. It's remarkably thin (0.44 inches), making it easy to slide into a coat or jacket pocket while running out the door. It can fill a room with clean, clear audio while laid flat on its back, with more bass and battery life (12 hours) than expected from something so small.

But what it does better than any Bluetooth speaker we've tested is sync up correctly with audio from movies and TV shows, when paired with a tablet or laptop. With other models, there's often a slight but deal-breaking lag between on-screen video and the accompanying sound, putting lip movement just ahead of audible dialogue. The Dash 7 has never committed that sin, pumping perfectly aligned audio that, when aimed directly at your face, is also surprisingly expansive, wrapping around like the left and rear-channel components of a surround-sound system. Bottom line: It's a wonderfully rich speaker that's up for any task, whether you're listening to Matthew McConaughey's morose ramblings on True Detective or lounging on some sandy, sun-speckled beach.

WHAT’S COOKING? VIKING RANGE, LLC PARTNERS UP WITH IDEVICES FOR CONNECTED PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT 

Avon, CT, February 5, 2014 – iDevices®, a leading product and app development company, specializing in the Bluetooth® and Wi-Ficonnected market, has been selected by Viking Range®, LLC as its partner for developing innovative, wirelessly connected Viking Professional products.  

The partnership will kick off with the development of a wireless temperature-monitoring system to be implemented into the Viking Professional 7 Series Range.  A Bluetooth Smart temperature-monitoring device designed and developed by iDevices will be retrofitted into the Viking 7 Series Range and will connect to users’ smart devices through the iDevices Connected app (available immediately for iOS devices with Android compatibility to launch in late 2014).  

“The Internet of Things is experiencing unprecedented growth and consumer brands are quickly realizing the need to develop products to meet consumer demand,” said Chris Allen, Chief Executive Officer of iDevices. “This relationship demonstrates the advancement of the technology and the role it will play in consumers’ everyday lives.”   

With the wireless temperature monitoring system, Viking temperature probe, and free iDevices Connected app, Viking Professional 7 Series Range owners will be able to conveniently indicate what they are cooking in their free iDevices Connected app, leave the temperature probe in the food, and receive an alert on their smart device once the food is cooked to the desired temperature.  The app also offers exclusive recipes, temperature graphing, social sharing and customizable timers.  

The Viking Professional 7 Series Range, the most premier Viking range yet, features 23,000 BTU Elevation Burners™ with brass flame ports adapted from the Viking Commercial product line, combined with a full-featured convection oven to create a restaurant-caliber range unlike any other in the residential market.  

“We continue to develop product and innovation that helps the Viking customer be the best home chef possible,” said Kevin Brown, VP Engineering for Viking Range, LLC. “We are excited about this partnership and the initiatives to provide the best products for our customers.” 

“Viking is already one of the most exceptional brands in the appliances market,” said Mike Daigle, chief operations officer of iDevices. “The combination of Viking’s top-of-the-line product with our leading-edge wireless connectivity should make this range one of the most advanced in the market.”

CITE 2014 Helps U.S. & International Companies Profit from the Large Asian Marketplace   

U.S. and international companies can profit from this large Asian marketplace potential by gaining business contacts and Asian information at CITE 2014.  Scheduled for April 10-12, 2014 at the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center in Shenzhen, China, the 2nd annual CITE 2014 is the place to grow business and showcase the latest IT and consumer electronics technologies, products and innovation from around the world.  Jointly organized by the Ministry of Industry and Information  Technology (MIIT) and the Shenzhen Municipal Government of P.R.

In addition, there will be industry forums and seminars on the top 30 hot topics, including China’s industry chain, 4G, smartphones, smart TVs, wearable technologies, security systems and cloud computing.  

CITE 2014 provides a unique opportunity for U.S. companies to showcase their new brands, technologies, and innovations to Chinese and Asian distributors and the emerging Chinese marketplace with a new American Pavilion.  Unlike other Asian trade shows that focus on selling Chinese products to U.S. companies, CITE is geared to help U.S. companies sell their products into the Asian market, by organizing the attendance of numerous high quality Chinese distributors and dealers and providing on-site business matchmaking programs in a “one on one” format, with qualified supplier introduction meetings, purchase preferences, and supply meetings. 

New in 2014, CITE is launching Exhibit Zones to assist exhibitors with optimal booth locations, with zones focusing on mobile smart devices, computers, networking equipment, digital audio/video devices, software/apps, information services, the internet, cloud computing, integrated circuits, flat panel displays, LEDs, lithium batteries, solar energy, new electronic components and materials, automotive, financial, and medical technologies.
