In this weeks Cool Picks, James, Jessica, and Nelson bring us some of the top technology from the AT world.
Join Jessica Rickards for an exclusive spotlight interview with Idan Meir, co-founder and CEO of Right-Hear, an Israel-based company focused on providing an auditory indoor navigation solution to the blind and visually impaired. Right-Hear is a free iOS app and is also available free on the Google Play Store. Users are able to obtain information about an area through Accessible Spots installed by the individual businesses.
In this informative VIP, James, Jessica, and Nelson bring us some of the top stories from the CBT website. They also give us their Cool Picks for the week, and answer some fan feedback.
Aira has developed a system that allows the user to connect to a live agent with a pair of smart glasses and an app on your phone. The agent then relays what is seen through the camera on the glasses, and relays it to the user through the headset or phone speaker via the Aira app. I recently recorded a podcast that shows how to set up the glasses and use the app on an iPhone, but some are wondering if it is accessible on an Android device.
Join the CBT Team as they explore this week’s latest Cool Picks.
What can you do with several Amazon Echo devices? You could shout to the closest one for the latest weather forecast or to play your favorite song. Instead of shouting though, why not use them as an intercom? According to CNET, Amazon has recently released a new feature called Drop In. As you probably may know, The Echo is able to make and receive calls and messages to other echo devices. Instead of waiting for the other party to answer, Drop In works exactly the way it sounds. Once you initiate the connection, you can freely begin to talk and hear the person on the other end.
Join Jessica, Tomi, and Rachel for another exciting VIP as they explore this week’s latest in technology. This week, it’s all about movies, and the devices you watch them on. Check out these exciting stories.
