CNET Selects NewerTech as one of Best iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus Cases!

By CNET

Best iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases

NewerTech NuGuard KX

We liked Newer Technology's NuGuard KX for the iPhone 5/5S and now you can get it for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. It's a slim case that offers good protection, thanks to "state-of-the-art" X-Orbing gel technology.

Personally, I'm not a fan of the window on the back, but some people want you to know they're carrying an Apple phone.

Available in multiple color options.


Price: $29 (iPhone 6) and $39 (6 Plus)

See more info and pricing for the Newer Technology NuGuard KX case.

APLARS SHIPS TUDIA KLIP –
INGENIOUS CLIP PROTECTS FRAGILE APPLE CABLES FROM DAMAGE
 
Saves Money -- Fixes & Protects Apple Charging Cables from Fraying & Splitting
Stylish TUDIA Klip Reduces Cable Strain by 80% with No Bulk
 
Extends Life of Expensive Original Apple Lightning & 30-Pin Charging Cables
 

St. Paul, MN, July 16, 2015 – Aplars, leading e-commerce store for electronic products and accessories, announced today that it is now shipping the TUDIA Klip http://www.tudiaproducts.com/klip, an ingenious tiny 2 piece silicone and polycarbonate clip that quickly snaps onto Apple Lightning and 30-pin charging cables, reducing strain by 80%, protecting your essential Apple charging cables from fraying and breaking, which often happens after just 6 months of use. The stylish TUDIA Klip saves money by controlling the cable from bending at the most vulnerable end points of the cables -- extending the life of expensive $25+ Apple cables, ensuring that they will be ready to charge your iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple Watch when you need it most. Adding little bulk or weight (at ½” long and .08 oz), the Klip comes in 5 colors – blue, green, pink, gray and yellow, and is available immediately from Amazon at just $6.99 a pair at: http://www.amazon.com/TUDIA-Charging-Protector-Lightning-charging/dp/B0106V7IES.  

As Essential as a Protective Case & Screen for Your iPhone or iPad –

TUDIA Klip Also Fixes Frayed Cables – No need to Buy Incompatible Third-Party Cables 

The Klip is essential protection for your Apple cable. It is as important as a protective case and screen is for your iPhone and iPad. In addition to preventing Apple cable damage, the TUDIA Klip also fixes already frayed or damaged cables, so you can continue to use them without attempting to fix them yourself with tape, throwing them out, or buying a cheaper third-party generic replacement cable, which is often incompatible with Apple devices. The TUDIA Klip package comes with 2 clips, one for each end of the cable. Simply slide the colored silicone base on the cable at the point where it meets the plug and then attach the white polycarbonate clip to lock the Klip into place for the ultimate in cable protection.  

“After my iPhone died at an extremely important time and I was unable to charge it because of a broken Apple cable, I decided to create the Klip, an essential solution to this often documented problem,” said Winson Teh, Founder of Aplars LLC. “Most people will see their Apple cables start to fray within 6 months of continued use. Because of this, customers have been asking for a solution to the low quality charging cables that come with Apple devices. For this reason, I created the TUDIA Klip.”  

Tudia Klip Features:

·        Protects Apple Lightning and 30-Pin charging/syncing cables for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple Watch.

·        Extends the life of cables.

·        Fixes already frayed or damaged cables.

·        Stylish, doesn’t add bulk or weight.

·        Easy to use, quickly snaps on.

·        2-piece design made of a durable silicone base and polycarbonate clip.

·        Reduces the need to buy expensive replacement cables or cheaper incompatible third party cables.

·        Available in 5 colors:  Pink, Blue, Green, Gray, and Yellow.

·        Priced at only $6.99 per pair. 

The TUDIA Klip is available immediately through Amazon for $6.99 at: http://www.amazon.com/TUDIA-Charging-Protector-Lightning-charging/dp/B0106V7IES

NewerTech Logo     Next Generation NewerTech Power2U Dual USB Wall Outlet

NEWERTECH ANNOUNCES UPDATED POWER2U ELECTRICAL OUTLET INTEGRATING TWO USB PORTS IN STANDARD WALL OUTLET
 
New Outlet is Easier to Install, Fits in More Places with Virtually Universal Compatibility
& Eliminates “Vampire” Energy Draw
 

Woodstock, IL, July 9, 2015 NewerTech, a leading developer of Macintosh, PC, iPod, iPhone, and iPad accessories, today announced the all-new, next generation NewerTech Power2U dual USB wall outlet that enables convenient charging of up to four mobile devices at a single electrical outlet.  The Power2U features two traditional 15 amp power outlets, plus two USB ports delivering an additional 2.5 amps via the USB ports, making the wall outlets “today ready” for charging the increasing numbers of mobile devices. 

Designed for Easy Installation 

The new Power2U utilizes a 14 cubic inch form factor, making it easy to install in virtually any electrical box.  The new compact design features integrated 14 gauge copper pigtails for easy installation and utilizes a standard wall plate which also allows installation in more places, even in multi-gang configurations. 

The new Power2U is fully listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and features tamper-resistant AC sockets that are compliant with the National Electrical Code (NEC).  The Power2U is designed to meet current building codes and be safe for use in homes and offices.  Users can install Power2U in minutes thanks to the compact design and free how-to installation video. 

Ideal “DIY” Upgrade For Multiple Device Homes 

The emergence of different types of electronic devices increases the need for electrical outlets in modern households.  Lamps, clocks, appliances and other household items now compete with portable electronic items for a power outlet.  Power2U is a great solution for multi-device homes as it allows for up to four devices to be charged at a single outlet.  Whether in an office, living room, or beside a bed, the Power2U delivers convenience and blends seamlessly anywhere wall outlets can be installed.  Power2U is available in four colors for more choices in matching existing decor - White, Black, Light Almond and Ivory. 

Money Saving, Energy-Efficient Design 

To prevent “vampire” energy draw, the updated Power2U incorporates internal micro-switches to conserve energy when not in use. The micro-switches turn on the USB power transformer only when a plug is inserted into the port, preventing vampire energy draw. While most USB charging devices are constantly drawing power, Power2U has always been uniquely designed to draw power only when a device is connected for charging.  With five percent of U.S. energy consumed by vampire power of appliances and computer equipment, the updated Power2U is a smart energy decision that can reduce monthly energy bills. 

Reviewers Praise for Power2U 

The Power2U family has been critically acclaimed by numerous product reviewers:

“...the future of technology in the present day...so effortless...became a mainstay in my USB power needs.”  Gaming Shogun 

“No longer will you have to worry about plugging in 'wall warts' or running out of outlets.”  Andrew Kunesh, Macgasm 

“If you (or your kids or your spouse) can’t keep track of chargers, these outlets can solve an irritating problem.”  James Barber, Under The Radar. 

Compatibility 

The Power2U is compatible with mobile and handheld devices that support charging through a USB port, including:

        Apple iPad (all models)

        Apple iPhone (all models)

        Apple iPod (all USB-chargeable models)

        Android tablets and phones with USB charging

        Tablet computers, cell phones, gaming systems (Nintendo, SONY PlayStation Portable, etc.), Bluetooth headsets, digital cameras and GPS devices that charge via standard USB plug.

Availability and Pricing 

The new Power2U outlet is available now from Other World Computing with a price of $24.99, and from other NewerTech distributors.  Power2U is available in four colors - White, Black, Light Almond and Ivory. 

NewerTech Power2U available through Other World Computing

$24.99

“We’re excited to announce the next-generation NewerTech Power2U,” said Larry O’Connor, CEO, NewerTech.  “The redesigned Power2U is easier to install than ever before, and maintains UL and NEC safety standards.  It is a convenient and energy-efficient solution for charging and powering the growing number of mobile devices that modern households rely on.  While providing additional charging ports, Power2U also leaves the standard electrical ports more accessible.  These are great outlets for any home with multiple portable devices that require charging.”

BEBOP SENSORS WINS FROST & SULLIVAN 2015
TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION AWARD

Frost & Sullivan 2015 Award

BeBop Smart Fabric Sensor Company Recognized for Commercially Scalable Solutions
for Global OEMs & Best Practices
 

Berkeley, CA, June 15, 2015 BeBop Sensors, Inc. www.bebopsensors.com, the leader in smart fabric sensor technology, announced today that it has won the 2015 Frost & Sullivan North American Technology Innovation Award for its fabric sensor technology. Frost & Sullivan presented BeBop Sensors with the prestigious Frost & Sullivan Technology Innovations Award because BeBop Sensors provides the ideal solution for today’s flexible fabric sensors industry. Embedded fabric sensors are an emerging field with great potential in various industries, such as wearables, sports, healthcare, automotive, and manufacturing.  

Mr. Sumit Kumar Pal, senior research analyst at Frost & Sullivan, said, “OEMs find it challenging to develop or procure smart fabric sensors that are multi-functional, reliable, and low-priced. Luckily for them, BeBop Sensor’s innovative smart fabric sensor technology meets these requirements, and because of its strong overall performance, BeBop Sensors is recognized with Frost & Sullivan’s 2015 Technology Innovation Award in Smart Fabric Sensors.”  Frost & Sullivan’s Technology Innovation Awards are presented each year to companies that are predicted to encourage significant growth in their industries, have identified emerging trends before they became the standard in the marketplace, and have created advanced technologies that will catalyze and transform industries in the near future. 

BeBop CEO Keith McMillen said, “We’re very pleased to be recognized by Frost & Sullivan for our advanced position in the emerging smart fabric sensor market. Turning concepts into shipping product is the undoing for many startups. We are unique to have so many years of experience in providing robust solutions and feel this advantage will be seen in every sensor we make”. 

Bebop’s Proprietary Monolithic Fabric Sensor Technology Senses 3D Behavior  

BeBop Sensors designs and manufactures custom smart fabric solutions for OEMs. Since launching in Q4 2014, BeBop has completed 14 new sensors for OEM solutions in numerous fields. BeBop Sensors uses a proprietary Monolithic Fabric Sensor Technology that integrates all of the sensors, traces and electronics into a single piece of fabric. This approach affords greater sensitivity, resolution, range of deployment and fantastic robustness with diminutive size. Implemented differently than other wearables that measure physiology (EKG, EMG), BeBop measures physicality.  BeBop technology senses and displays pressure, XY location, bend, motion, rotation, angle, and torsion.  

According to Engineering.com, “BeBop’s future looks promising. They tout a technology that has already caught the eye of hundreds of companies in a range of different markets, from athletic goods to medical sensors to automotive.” and Wearable Tech World said, “The solutions BeBop offer for integration into wearable products is an impressive list…Wearable technology is a hot topic right now, and it seems like BeBop Sensors is staking claim in the industry at the right time.”  

Commercially Proven Fabric Sensor Technology Shipping Today 

Shipping now, BeBop’s sensor technology is based on smart fabric technology that has been under development for 6 years.  BeBop’s core sensor technology was originally deployed by Keith McMillen Instruments (KMI), which now has over 2 million smart fabric sensors in regular daily use in its musical instrument products. BeBop Sensors was spun out of KMI last year to take advantage of the growing need for practical fabric sensors with a proven record in design, manufacture and performance. 

New BeBop Prototypes:

Automotive – “Smart Tire”:  adjusts suspension & anti-lock brakes/reports on tread depth

BeBop has developed a prototype “smart tire” that can sense the road surface, tire profile, and detailed information about the contact patch -- the all-important hand sized area where the rubber literally meets the road. CEO Keith McMillen says, “While tire pressure monitoring is becoming standard, greater knowledge of the tire’s profile and road engagement can be used to adjust suspension, enlighten anti-lock braking and report on tread depth.”  See video on “smart tire” at: https://youtu.be/mo6DpZvinpk.   

Gaming, VR & Medical - Disposable Data Gloves:  senses body motion, finger flexing, & abduction

Other applications for the versatile smart fabrics include detailed sensing of bodily motion. A first generation prototype of an all fabric data glove provides information of finger flexing and abduction from 14 fabric sensors. Combined with BeBop’s previously announced data insole, a sophisticated VR sensing system for locomotion and manipulation is available to certain OEMs. The Monolithic Fabric Sensor Technology can be used to produce sensors that are priced low enough to be considered disposable by medical and industrial standards. See video of disposable data gloves at:  https://youtu.be/j-UYN4qMsYo.

Universal Pressure Maps: smart chairs, hospital beds, etc.

A simple single layer fabric sensor can map pressures from complex objects in real time. Size and resolution can be targeted for specific applications. A basic fabric sensor is responsive from 50 grams to 100 Kgs, a 2000:1 dynamic range. Resolutions from 2mm to 15mm with fabric thicknesses down to 0.3mm are readily available. Applications for pressure maps are numerous, ranging from smart chairs that correct posture to sheets for hospital beds that track patient handling. See video of pressure maps at: https://youtu.be/vab-Nig9MXc. 

The award-winning BeBop Sensor Technology for OEMs is available now: “Make things knowable.” For more information, see the website: www.bebopsensors.com

LUCIDBRAKE BIKE BRAKE LIGHT COMPANY
TO DONATE 20% OF SUMMER SALES TO
CHARITIES CHOSEN BY RIDERS 

LucidBrake Wireless Brake Light Makes Biking Safer –
No Installation or Wiring Needed!
Patent Pending LED Brake Light FLASHES at Slow & Stop Motions
100% Waterproof, Works on Bicycles, Helmets, Backpacks, & Other Surfaces

June 9, 2015, Parker, CO – LucidBrake www.lucidbrake.com, the smart LED lighting safer biking technology company, announced today that any bike-a-thon, triathlon, or other bicycle event raising money for a cause now has another way to raise money for their charity. If they sign up at www.lucidbrake.com  and tell their bikers about LucidBrake, 20% of every order by their bikers will be designated for their charity. 

“Bikers raising money for a cause this summer have a new friend. LucidBrake believes in safer biking AND doing good, so we are giving 20% of every designated order we receive this summer to biking fundraisers,” said LucidBrake inventor and Microsoft author John Craig. “Our SMART BRAKE makes bikers safer on the road. Prevention is 100% better than healing broken bones and repairing broken bikes. I have family members who ride. I care about them and want to make all families safer. What better way than giving to a good cause?”  

LucidBrake for Safer Riding – Features Advanced Computer Circuitry 

LucidBrake detects slowing and stopping motions using all 3 axes of acceleration (right/ left, up/down, backwards/forwards) filtering out road bumps, grades, angles, and normal cycling movements. LucidBrake is attached by press-on 3M fastener material, tough enough to hold up metal siding on buildings in extreme outdoor weather conditions -- NO installation and NO wiring required!  

LucidBrake’s 8 ultra-bright LEDs can be seen up to a ½ mile away at night and ¼ mile during the day so cars, other bikers, and pedestrians can see you braking, slowing down, or stopping, even at a distance.  The 8 LEDs blink as you move and blaze solid when you stop (just like a car’s brake lights).  Besides bikes, you can also use it on boats, jet skis, skateboards, wheelchairs, scooters, helmets, and even backpacks and more. 

100% Waterproof - Works Underwater for Boating and Other Aquatic Uses 

100% waterproof, the LucidBrake circuit board is completely encased in a special optically clear conformal coating recommended by Dow Corning engineers, so LucidBrake even works underwater for boating, biking in rain or snow, and other aquatic uses. This super-tough coating is used for solar energy projects, where long term exposure to ultraviolet light, intense heat and cold can take their toll. 

LucidBrake Features:

·        Ultra bright brake light visible from ½ mile away at night and ¼ mile in the day to prevent cyclists’ injuries.

·        Easy to install, no wiring needed. Presses on securely with tough dual-lock fasteners.

·        Patent-pending innovative design.

·        Flat back allows it to mount onto multiple surfaces, backpacks, helmets, etc.

·        4 different beacon modes (flashing, fast flashing, solid, off) with modes aligning to the E.U. laws (off or dimmed tail-light).

·        Angled cover design increases degree of visibility.

·        Brake light has two speeds:  normal and emergency.

·        Brake Light Indicator:

o       No pressing a pedal or button necessary.

o       Knows when going over bumpy roads, down a hill, or really slowing down.

o       Adjusts to the mounting angle.

o       Flashes more intensely when stopping suddenly, alerting others.

·        No on/off switch: automatically goes into sleep mode when not in use or by changing the position of the unit or storing in flat or horizontal position.

·        Long battery life of over 1 year with 2 AAA batteries.

·        Waterproof :  operates underwater for biking in rain or snow—and even for boating!

·        Lightweight:  under 2 oz. total weight (including batteries).

·        Many other creative non-bicycle uses possible - such as at the end of long loads.

OWC WIND & SOLAR ENERGY PRODUCTION TO EXCEED 100%
OF ITS NATIONWIDE ENERGY CONSUMPTION NEEDS
 
OWC Product Philosophy of Maximizing Resources
Successfully Extended to Business Sustainability Initiatives 

Woodstock, IL - April 22, 2015 – Other World Computing (OWC), a leading zero emissions Mac and PC technology company, announced today on Earth Day that as part of the company’s sustainability program, it will soon produce enough on-site wind and solar power to cover all energy needs for four facilities in three states (Illinois, Texas and Nevada), becoming completely energy independent due to its adoption of alternative energy sources. 

OWC provides customers with products that allow them to maximize the longevity of their technology products and to improve the performance of those products. Since 2003, OWC has worked to extend this approach to its business operations, with the result that the company currently recycles 97 percent of its solid waste materials; received LEED® Platinum Certification by the Green Building Certification Institute in 2010; and will soon reach its goal of generating more power than it consumes. 

Energy Independence

OWC has focused on facility efficiency to reduce energy requirements with technologies such as geothermal heating and cooling systems and on-site renewable energy production for the provision of energy needs. The company kicked off its alternative, on-site energy generation program with the installation of a Vestas V39-500kW wind turbine in 2009, and quickly became the first manufacturer/distributor in the U.S. to become 100% on-site wind powered.  OWC’s headquarters in Woodstock, Illinois currently generates more power than is consumed at this location, where approximately 176 of OWC’s 215 team members operate from today.  The excess power flows out to the local power grid, providing a renewable source of energy to other energy consumers in McHenry County.

OWC has also adopted solar power as an energy source.  In late 2012 and early 2013, OWC opened two new locations in Texas, and soon installed solar panels on the roof of its downtown Austin location.  Energized at the beginning of 2014, the highly efficient panels installed now generate approximately one-third of the power consumed by this three-story building, including the majority of power that is consumed by the third floor occupied by OWC.  As in Woodstock, excess power that accrues during low usage periods is put out onto the Austin Energy grid.  The project not only solidified OWC’s reputation as a leader in utilizing green technology, but it also helps to explain why the tech firm has fit in so well since it expanded into Austin about three years ago. 

Even factoring in a total of four operational centers in three states, OWC’s current solar and wind generation still provides for approximately 88% of its total annual power needs, and OWC stipulates that any remaining power be purchased from available local renewable power providers.  The goal is to generate beyond the need of the organization at large.  To achieve this, a new project has already commenced to utilize the roof of the 37,000 square foot Woodstock HQ operation for solar generation.  Following the completion of this project, expected by early summer 2015, OWC will not only generate more power than is used at its four facilities, but will also add excess, clean wind and solar energy to the local power grid, and be able to continue to self-power as OWC continues to expand to new facilities in the future. 

“Everything we do at OWC is about going further,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder and CEO of Other World Computing. “Taking technology further, enabling existing technology to go further with better performance and greater lifetime of productive use, and going further in support of our customers and their technology needs. Using proven technology to see our natural resources go further and reduce consumption and waste benefits the world we all share for today and our children tomorrow.” 

The Illinois headquarters also benefits from a geothermal heating and cooling system.  Water is pumped into geo-wells set more than 200 feet into the ground, moving from the building to below ground level and then back, day after day, year after year.  If the water becomes warmer in the summer when passing through the building, it will give up that heat to the earth, 200 feet below the surface, where it is always a range of 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit.  The process works in the reverse during cold weather months, preheating the air for the heating system so the system doesn’t have to heat air from the outside, which could be at zero degrees Fahrenheit or colder.  For more information on OWC’s geothermal system, please visit http://eshop.macsales.com/green/points/energy.html  

Recycling

Starting with an aggressive corrugated box recycling program in 2003, OWC has expanded its solid waste recycling program to include all paper, plastic, and aluminum cans. The total of recorded recycled solid waste in 2005 was 32.5 tons. After moving to its new facility in 2008, OWC’s tally of recycled solid waste from 2008 to 2015 reached an impressive total of 287.3 tons -- materials that otherwise would have become part of the solid waste stream. 

Non-recyclable materials such as food materials from the staff lunchroom go into a solid waste compactor, but only after being monitored to extract any recyclable materials. And a composting program for a new onsite employee garden has further reduced food waste, resulting in a compactor box only needing to be removed about every 11 months. Imagine having your trash picked up only once a year! 

OWC continues to work at bettering its 97 percent solid waste recycling record by only using recyclable plastic and aluminum containers in company vending machines. OWC also takes “green” even further by helping with local fundraising efforts, through donating aluminum cans to a local animal shelter and used printer toner cartridges to local schools. And by using native plants in landscaped areas, OWC helps conserve water. 

Green Buildings

As part of its mission to design its new Illinois headquarters to be “green” from the ground up, OWC participated in the United States Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. The result was that the new OWC corporate campus was awarded LEED® Platinum Certification in March 2010 by the Green Building Certification Institute, the highest achievable level. Out of more than 14,000 LEED projects engaged worldwide since the program’s inception, OWC is one of less than 300 to achieve the Platinum standard. With this recognition, OWC also became the first privately owned light manufacturing/assembly building in Illinois to obtain LEED Platinum status.  The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings.  

In September 2010, OWC’s headquarters earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR® rating for building operations that perform in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency.  OWC continues to upgrade existing buildings for even more energy efficiency, such as recently installing high-efficiency air-conditioning units in its Austin facility, as well as special dual-reflective window film that blocks up to 66 percent of the sun’s heat. 

“Today on Earth Day, we remind ourselves of the importance of respecting the environment. We at OWC are proud of our dedication to a greener planet with LEED and Green Initiatives and are committed to preserving the environment with non-polluting sustainable wind turbine and solar energy solutions,” said Larry O’Connor, Founder & CEO, Other World Computing.

LUCIDBRAKE SMART WIRELESS BICYCLE BRAKE LIGHT ANNOUNCED ON KICKSTARTER 

Highly Intelligent Bike Brake Light Debuts on Kickstarter 

Patent Pending -- 8 Ultra Bright LEDs Wirelessly Detect Stopping Motion Easy Set-up with Tough Press-on “Dual Lock” Fasteners Used in Buildings – No Installation or Wiring Needed! 

Kids & Adults Are Safer Riding in Traffic – Awareness Beacon Visible from ½ Mile Away  

100% Waterproof, Works on Bicycles, Helmets, Backpacks, & Other Surfaces 

April 14, 2015, Parker, Colorado -- LucidLights, LLC www.lucidbrake.com, creator of smart LED lighting technology, announced today on Kickstarter, LucidBrake, the patent-pending smart wireless motion-sensing bicycle brake light with awareness beacon for safer biking in traffic, at night, or in groups. Available on Kickstarter at: http://bikebrakelight.com, LucidBrake is the most intelligent bike brake light on the market.  It mounts on virtually any surface, using all 3 axes of acceleration signals (right/ left, up/down, backwards/forwards) to detect deceleration and stopping, filtering out road bumps, grades, angles, and normal cycling movements.  

No Installation or Wiring Needed 

LucidBrake easily and securely presses onto the bike, rider, helmet or other surface with “Dual Lock” fasteners from 3M, extremely tough fastener material that’s even used to hold up metal siding on buildings in extreme outdoor weather conditions – no installation or wiring required! 

Featuring 8 ultra-bright LEDs, LucidBrake can be seen up to a ½ mile away at night and ¼ mile during the day, ensuring that cars, other bikers, and pedestrians will see you braking, slowing down, or stopping suddenly, even at a distance.  The 8 LEDs blink as you move and alert solid when you stop (just like a car’s brake lights), detecting movement on boats, jet skis, bikes, skateboards, wheelchairs, scooters, helmets, and even backpacks, clothing, signs, and other flat surfaces. 

Kickstarter Page Launched Today with Early Bird Pricing 

LucidBrake is exclusively available for pre-order starting today through its Kickstarter campaign at: http://bikebrakelight.com. The first 25 backers will get the early bird discount special of $50, with additional backers receiving LucidBrake at the discounted rate of $69.99. In addition, some backers will receive the first-ever personalized product perk from this campaign, a customized 20 oz. stainless-steel water bottle emblazoned with their name, perfect for cycling excursions.   

LucidBrake for Safer Riding – Features Advanced Computer Circuitry 

If you’re a cyclist, you know how important it is to be seen by those around you -- being seen is being safe. Featuring advanced computer circuitry, LucidBrake knows the difference between slowing down and abruptly stopping, detecting motion with 4 beacon modes:  2 blinking modes, steady glow (tail light), or off (for racers) normally while in motion. It has a 2-speed braking indicator:  flashing quick alerts during sudden stops, glowing solid during normal stops.  100% waterproof, the LucidBrake circuit board is completely encased in a special optically clear conformal coating at the suggestion of engineers at Dow Corning to protect from the elements.  LucidBrake even works under water for boating or other aquatic uses. This super-tough coating is used for solar energy projects, where long term exposure to ultraviolet light, intense heat and cold can take their toll. 

Light-weight Under 2 ounces for Endurance Cyclists -- 3 Inches Wide for Visibility 

The inventors of LucidBrake interviewed cyclists who told them their main concern, besides safety, was adding weight to their rides. As many cyclists are endurance riders, they feel every ounce added to their bikes.  At under 2 ounces, LucidBrake adds very little weight and at 3 inches across, it gives cyclists the essential light and braking safety that they require.  LucidBrake works with 2 AAA batteries that last over 1 year, shutting off when not in use to save battery life. 

“We’ve taken bicycle safety lights to a whole new level with LucidBrake,” said John Craig, inventor and owner at LucidLights LLC. “Simply attach LucidBrake to your bike, helmet, backpack, or elsewhere, add two AAA batteries and ride. There’s no wiring at all, not even an on/off switch. It’s that simple, easy to use, and it works great! LucidBrake is smart enough to self-adjust to the mounting angle, road grades, and bumps, making it the most intelligent brake light on the market.”

Lucid Brake Features:

·        Ultra bright brake light visible from ½ mile away at night and ¼ mile in the day to prevent cyclists’ injuries.

·        Easy to install, no wiring needed. Presses on securely with tough dual-lock fasteners.

·        Patent-pending innovative design.

·        Flat back allows it to mount onto multiple surfaces, backpacks, helmets, etc.

·        4 different beacon modes (flashing, fast flashing, solid, off) with modes aligning to the E.U. laws (off or dimmed tail-light).

·        Angled cover design increases degree of visibility.

·        Brake light has two speeds:  normal and emergency.

·        Brake Light Indicator:

o       No pressing a pedal or button necessary.

o       Knows when going over bumpy roads, down a hill, or really slowing down.

o       Adjusts to the mounting angle.

o       Flashes more intensely when stopping suddenly, alerting others.

·        No on/off switch: automatically goes into sleep mode when not in use or by changing the position of the unit or storing in flat or horizontal position.

·        Long battery life of over 1 year with 2 AAA batteries.

·        Waterproof :  operates under water for biking in rain or snow, for boating, or other aquatic uses.

·        Lightweight:  under 2 oz. total weight (includes battery).

·        Many other creative non-bicycle uses are possible, such as at the end of long car or truck loads.

10 Gadgets to Keep Mobile Pros Productive on Road or in Office by Wayne Rash
 
Battery Pack Serves as Impeccable Power Source
There are lots of small batteries that promise to give your smartphone a quick charge when you're out of the office. But most of them fall short because they don't pack the power to provide more than a partial charge. That's not so with the Impecca PEB10200, which packs an impressive 10,200mAh worth of charge in a case that's about the size of a BlackBerry Z30. This makes it small enough to fit into your pocket, but powerful enough to charge your phone, your tablet and probably a couple of other items. It will even charge two items at the same time.
 
Getting Actual Work Done With Your iPad
No doubt, there are people who can touch-type 80 words a minute on an iPad. But mere mortals could use some help if they need to type lengthy documents on their tablets. This is why they make Bluetooth keyboards for iPads and other tablets—so that you can be productive as well as mobile. When Impecca sent me that massive battery, they also sent along a Bluetooth keyboard that's designed to boost the productivity of the more tangle-fingered mobile device users out there. The keyboard is even made out of bamboo, so that it is light enough and thin enough to fit into a briefcase.
 
Nuguard KX Phone Case Provides Military-Grade Protection
We all know the worry that you have when you're out of the office that something bad will befall your smartphone, costing you money and also keeping you from getting your work done. Obviously, one way to prevent a fatal drop, say in the airport concourse between passport control and customs, is by using a protective case. One example is the Nuguard KX case from NewerTech. The company says it meets a variety of military specifications, including MIL-STD-8100 US. This probably suits most users' needs.

Burg 12 Smartwatch Tells Time and Much More
Of course, you can use your standard old analog wristwatch to tell you what time it is, but why waste that valuable wrist real estate just telling time? Now that smartwatches have read the market, it's all about having your life on your wrist as well as on your phone. The Burg 12 Smartwatch does about everything that you've heard that these devices do. But the Burg model adds more features. Where most smartwatches link to your phone with Bluetooth and an app, the Burg 12 doesn't need that. Deep inside the Burg is a slot for a SIM card and a micro-SD card. Plug in the SIM, and the watch becomes a phone. It makes calls using a GSM network, can send text messages and uses data just like your phone. But it will also link to your Android or iOS device with Bluetooth. As you'd probably expect, the watch is fairly bulky, and the screen is about 1 inch in size. You'll need the stylus that's hidden in the strap near the buckle to do anything with the keyboard. But it does work and even tells time.
 
Low-Power Desk Lamp Brightens Those Gloomy Offices
It's bad enough to get back to your office and then find yourself having to squint at the stuff on your desk as you work. Sure, that flickering fluorescent light in the ceiling is supposed to be adequate, but somehow, it's never enough. But a good desk lamp can make the job seem easier and the load lighter. NewerTech's NuGreen LED desk lamp provides plenty of light while keeping things cool because its uses less than 4 Watts of electricity.

To this end, parents can monitor the whereabouts of their children via GPS tracking and seniors can make one-touch calls in the event of an emergency. “This special 911 emergency feature replaces the stereotypical, embarrassing and expensive ‘I’ve fallen’ pendant that seniors have an aversion to wearing due to the stigma it creates,” Burg said in a statement.

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.

Stainless Steel -- Today’s Preferred Watch Style Choice 

The fashion forward BURG 27 smartwatch functions as a standalone phone, with the ability to make and receive calls and texts without linking to a smartphone.  It also includes the new Android 4.4 OS to connect to all Android phones, as well as iOS and other smartphones through Bluetooth.  It offers all the functions of a smartphone – phone calls, text, music content, streaming music and video, 2 MP camera, calendar, 1,500 contact list, voice recording, social media, etc. -- in a fashionable round, stainless steel 48mm size with a 240 x 240 resolution scratch and water resistant touchscreen -- today’s preferred watch style choice.   

Over 20 years of Life Style History 

To be debuted at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, January 6-9, 2015 Booth #70854, Sands, the BURG 27 is created by world-renowned Dutch lifestyle designer and trendsetter, Hermen van den Burg, CEO of BURG. BURG is well known for their over 20 years of design work with Ikea and retail giant Target, providing an edge in designing that other “tech-style” smartwatch manufacturers cannot match.  In keeping with the clean, minimalistic, but powerful elements that define Dutch design, the BURG 27 integrates seamlessly with consumer’s lifestyles.

I am proud to say that the 2015 BURG Smartwatch Collection is nothing short of spectacular! Where our competitors continue to create unfashionable ‘tech style’ smartwatches with rubber straps, BURG is blazing new trails in creating Smartwatches that are technologically advanced and highly fashionable as well.  The 2015 Collection is comprised of unique case designs, materials and colors which will allow BURG owners the ability to completely customize their devices,” said Hermen van den Burg, CEO and Founder, BURG.

BEBOP SENSORS LAUNCHES WEARABLE SMART FABRIC TECHNOLOGY --
First Thin Smart Fabric Sensors to Measure All Aspects of Physicality: 
Force, Location, Size, Twist, Bend, Stretch & Motion

Patented Monolithic Fabric Sensors Let You Answer Calls from a Shirt, Predict Diabetic Events & Measure Gait through Insoles, Show Hand/Foot Location on Gym Mats, &
Track Driver Alertness in Steering Wheels

For Clothing, Shoes, & Gear for Sports, Medical, Gaming, Robotics, Aerospace, & Security
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. 

BeBop Elegant Smart Fabric Sensor Company for OEMs Spun Out from KMI Musical Instrument Innovator 

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 Wearable Sensor Markets:       

         Clothing and protective wear

         Shoes

         Healthcare devices

         Athletic equipment

         Automotive

         Robotics

         Aerospace

         Security

“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.

Compatible with iPad, iPad mini, Nexus7, Nexus10, Kindle, and other tablets, the tabArm includes the  iStabilizer tabMount that mounts tablets to any standard tripod, a Clamp, Hot Shoe Adapter, and 11" stainless steel articulating Arm (each of these items are also sold separately).  The iStabilizer tabARM cradles the tablet while in your case and works with any standard tripod that uses the ¼” thread.  The included tabMount holds the iPad from side to side and the iPad mini from top to bottom.  The tabArm holds up to 8.8 lbs and any tablet up to 8.25” (209mm) wide or tall.   To see how to use the tabArm, check out the video:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfgGTPF8TtE   

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

·        At work to keep an eye on your calendar.

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.

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.

·        Previous 4.0 version available for download for WinXP users.

·        Supports touch and screen tablet devices, such as Microsoft Surface Pro.

·        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.  

ArtRage 4.5 Free to ArtRage 4 Users

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. 

Pricing & Availability 

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.
