Because, you know, first of all, it handles lighting. It’s a speaker, but on top of it, it has projection to a table and Lucas is standing next to me alysus Am I saying that right? Yeah. All right, man, I see I’m on the board here. Now. I mean, I could if I wanted to look up news or whatever, I could do that. Play a little entertainment. But I’m betting the basis around this as the games, isn’t it?</p> <p>Lukas: Yeah, you’re on the point. So like, we try to mix every, you know, like part of use cases together, you can play a little game, you can go back, you can check out the news to just like inspire the conversation, right? Then you can go back and talk about something more serious. So to say. So, in the b2b context, you can do a little presentation, you can take out your phone, connect your phone to the to the table,</p> <p>Marlo: just so we clarify this. So and everybody understands. This is not a touchscreen. It’s actually a projector. Absolutely. So you can’t even go ahead and try to touch your pad right now. I just want to prove nothing’s going on. Right. And while ah,</p> <p>Lukas: and we can even do this. So there we go</p> <p>Marlo: There we go. Yes. Right. So it’s an interactive projection that’s going on here, as well. Like you said, a light and a speaker outside of the game thing. Do I see this in kitchens? Yeah, right. You know, people who are have recipes that they’re creating, or whatever, right? I mean, just to have that ability to maybe watch somebody while they’re cooking something. So you have almost an instant tutorial in front of you. would be amazing as well. I mean, it’s just,</p> <p>Lukas: I really couldn’t endless. Sorry. You can already do that. Because just go to entertainment. Click on our YouTube app. And you get your recipe here, right.</p> <p>Marlo: That’s exactly what I’m thinking. Yeah, exactly. Yeah. Very, very cool. And it works on pretty much any light counter.</p> <p>Lukas: Yeah, pretty much. The brighter the surface, the better. Yep.</p> <p>Marlo: Is this available on the market already? Absolutely. And where can we find it?</p> <p>Lukas: Obviously, it’s let’s see. Ah,</p> <p>Marlo: Lucas it’s been a pleasure. This is your “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.</p> Co-founder and CEO, Lukas Julen introduces to us Abusizz and shows our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson how to interact with it on a table surface. <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/interactive-projection-with-abusizz/">Interactive Projection with Abusizz</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

I was gonna say blast off. I’m gonna let you do that. So Michelle Lucas higher orbits. Thanks for being with me today.</p> <p>Michelle: So excited to be here. It’s my first time at CES and they get to see you.</p> <p>Marlo: Yes, yes, we’ve known each other for quite a few years, work with national astronauts stay together. So that’s always a fun thing to talk about. But we’re going to talk about tech today, and maybe a little bit about higher orbits.</p> <p>Michelle: Awesome. I mean, look, space doesn’t exist without text. So it’s a perfect intersection of orbits. Yeah.</p> <p>Marlo: So who do you have here that you wanting to see? So I came</p> <p>Michelle: Honestly, in part specifically to see Sierra space and they’re really cool concept that they have going on, they brought a model of their dream chaser vehicle wings are back, she’ll be flying into space with cargo. And they’re here with Blue Origin and some of their other partners for orbital reef, their space station. And so I came out to see that because I’m a space girl at heart, as you know. But it’s been really fascinating to see all the different things and all the different tech, some of which I didn’t even know existed.</p> <p>Marlo: So tell us a little bit about higher orbits, what’s going on in 2022.</p> <p>Michelle: So higher orbits. For those of you who don’t know, we are a nonprofit that uses spaceflight to get kids interested in science, technology, engineering, and math. And we run a program where astronauts work with local students and communities and the kids compete to have their science flown to space. Now that exists because of tech that has been developed and automation and things that I suspect in some ways debuted here. Once upon a time, they’re designing a science experiment that fits in a little tiny cube and you know, once upon a time that would have taken this much space, right? It is such an exciting year ahead. We’ve had students that just presented at AI double A Cytec event, which is the biggest Aerospace Research Forum. And we have students are going to present it various things. We hope to we’ll soon be selecting another experiments playing space running events. We are full steam ahead this year.</p> <p>Marlo: Shell has been a pleasure check on higher orbits everybody. Where do we find information about higher orbits</p> <p>Michelle: www.higherorbits.org and it’s within s like the proper aerospace term, not the travel websites. Okay.</p> <p>Marlo: That’s good to know that so Alright, this is Marlo Anderson, your “Guru of Geek” at CES 2022.</p> Founder and President, Michelle Lucas discusses Higher Orbits with our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson. Higher Orbits is a non-profit org with the mission of promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM); along with leadership, teamwork, and communication through the use of spaceflight. <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/prepare-for-the-galaxies-with-higher-orbits/">Prepare for the Galaxies with Higher Orbits</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

Zach has an answer for this.</p> <p>Zak: So our solution for that is the new blonde flare speaker, indoor outdoor speaker. They have a 50 foot range between each other so you can connect it in each room of your home, put a couple on your patio and they’ll all sink accordingly to the master program.</p> <p>Marlo: And how many of these can you think you can connect over 100 at a time, so I could cover my whole backyard? Absolutely.</p> <p>Zak: And indoor outdoor so there’s IPX five ratings with with splashes, rain, things like that, but a couple around your pool just can’t go fully underwater. Okay, so what do they sound like? As you know Bluetooth speakers don’t really prioritize bass too much we take pride in our bass. So these are very basic Speaker What else has a crisp sound as well and not overwhelming base.</p> <p>Marlo: Okay. Okay. And I see LED lighting so it adds some nice visual. Yeah,</p> <p>Zak: there’s seven different color LEDs. As you can see right here, red, blue, cyan, yellow, green, purple, lavender, white, blue.</p> <p>Marlo: This is amazing. They get a little handle on it as well. It’s easy to carry out to the carrier and hang up on like that’s exactly what I was thinking right? They see your lights and things that you have. What are they retail for? </p> <p>Zak: So these are retailing on our website, new blonde, calm and on Amazon for about 139 99 </p> <p>Marlo: Okay, and they’re available now. </p> <p>Zak: Yes, sir. available. Now we have one packs, two packs and four packs available. </p> <p>Marlo: Then again, where do we find more information?</p> <p>Zak: Nuvelon.com</p> <p>Marlo: All right, thanks.

Expand your Robotic World with Avular

March 13, 2022

<img src="https://i0.wp.com/thetechranch.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/image-10.png?resize=365%2C191&amp;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-22787" width="365" height="191" />Albert Maas with Marlo Anderson at CES 2022 <p>Marlo: We just discovered a very interesting product at CES 2022. These are modular devices that plugged together kind of like Legos that have like GPS, LiDAR, all kinds of sensors, possibilities that you can stack together and create robots from think of the possibilities with companies, maybe in warehouses, drones, autonomous vehicles, all kinds of great stuff are possible with this. Let’s go check it out. For whatever reason, I got Legos in my head all of a sudden, yeah, well, so</p> <p>Albert: is this what this Oh, look at this, look at this. Okay, it is almost like that. So you have the the main computer actually, okay. And the whole idea is that here, the bunch of the algorithms is already in there, the AI the control theory that you need. But we also see that you need additional processes to get going. Sure. But it’s different for different tasks. So whether you need need GPS or 5g, you can just click on additional modules. So we made, we made a bus system and clicking system, and you can configure it in whatever way you want. So and in addition to the hardware that’s modular, it’s also in software. So you can have the state of the art control algorithms, and just put the blocks on there that you need, so that you keep all the resources nice and tidy. So how many different modules you have? So right now we have four, but we’re expanding this this year and into multiple of 10. More diverting from additional IO to additional communication systems.</p> <p>Marlo: So do you have any your modules programmable as well, I can stack Yeah, what you have. And then you have the last one that I can program the different things that I want it to do as well, or actually the</p> <p>Albert: first one, you can pre pre program it with the modules that we have. But you can also make your own code. So it’s very flexible, okay, it is as open as you would want it. But all the software blocks that we supply, we also tested rigorously so that it can be applied in industrial cases, so that you know what you have.</p> <p>Marlo: So do you see your system being used more in the commercial world? Or do you see, you know, hobbyists, like myself hopping in there and having a little fun with this too?</p> <p>Albert: Well, a little bit of both. So our business model is three folds, actually, you can buy these building blocks on the webshop. And as an engineer, you can just play around with it like you would with a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino. Yeah. But then the more industrial cases, we see research companies getting into it, but also r&amp;d teams of bigger companies. And then they start with it. And they make their own first prototype, I think a very cool use case that we have, we have a drone for a Swedish company. And it has a 3d Lidar and four cameras, and it can inspect the forest. And then they made the AI algorithms to detect which trees to cut or not to cut. So to make it much more sustainable. And then we end at the autonomous robot and they give the additional AI to do that task.</p> <p>Marlo: So how do we find out more about your product?</p> <p>Albert: Yeah, well, you can go to the website, of course it’s www.outlaw.com AVAL. You are done. Exactly. Yes.</p> <p>Marlo: I appreciate it. Check it out everybody. And this is your guru of geek Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.</p> Avular is an agile and innovative robotics company, aiming to make the world of complex mobile robotics accessible to everyone..

Your New Robotic Limb by Psyonic

March 11, 2022

<img src="https://i0.wp.com/thetechranch.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/image-9.png?resize=388%2C250&amp;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-22780" width="388" height="250" />Aandeel Akhtar with Marlo Anderson at CES 2022 <p>Marlo: This is an incredible product here. And once you tell us a little bit about what you have developed, and the usefulness and and I’d love to hear your story down. So, you know, go ahead and do tell us what you have going on and how this is developed.</p> <p>Aandeel: Yeah, so we develop advanced bionic limbs that are affordable and accessible for everyone. And so this is our latest product, the ability hand and say bionic hand meant for people who have lost it, and they can control it just with their muscles. And so they can control all the individual fingers on it, and do different grips with it too. And Dan will be able to demonstrate that</p> <p>Marlo: I’m so impressed. I really am by this. So are you? Is this a 3d printed with some circuitry, attitude sensors and type thing? Are you actually mass producing these now? Or how does this work? So it’s actually</p> <p>Aandeel: a bit of both. So we have 3d printed components, but then we reinforced them with things like carbon fiber and silicon become super robust to impact and super light and strong</p> <p>Marlo: because each person has an individual need. Right? So having that 3d printed piece allows you to do that if I’m exactly, exactly Okay. Okay. So you say affordable? Yes. So what does that mean? I have no idea. I’m thinking that something like what you’re wearing, right there would cost $100,000. </p> <p>Aandeel: So it’s definitely not $100,000. It’s more in the range of 10 to 20,000. Oh, my goodness. And not only that, so before hand came on along, only about 10% of individuals could actually afford a bionic can. And that’s if you’re in the military, or if you had a workplace accident, we got it covered by Medicare, and then expanded that access to 75% of patients can now afford a bionic can. And so not only is it more advanced than any of the other bionic hands out there, it’s more accessible than ever. So</p> <p>Marlo: I think we are going to do a demonstration. Yeah. All right. All right. Thank you for this. Yeah. We go. Yeah. That’s unbelievable. Are you producing other limbs as well?</p> <p>Aandeel: So we’re, we’ve got some ideas for an ability leg in addition to our ability hand,</p> <p>Marlo Anderson: Okay. Very cool. Are these available? I mean, can if I knew somebody that needed one would you be able to outfit that person so</p> <p>Aandeel: We just released this nationwide three months ago, and so it’s covered by insurance is all across the United States? Really?</p> <p>Marlo: That’s pretty cool as well. So very, very nice. And how do we find out more information about your product so</p> <p>Aandeel: you can visit our website www.psyonic.io </p> <p>Marlo: Why don’t you spell that? </p> <p>Aandel: P S Y O N I C.</p> <p>Marlo: Okay, very good.</p> <p>Marlo: At CES 2022 This is your “Guru of Geel” Marlo Anderson.</p> CEO and Founder, Aandeel Akhtar demonstrates to our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson Psyonic a much more affordable and accessible robotic limb. <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/ceo-and-founder-aandeel-akhtar-demonstrates-to-our-guru-of-geek-marlo-anderson-psyonic-a-much-more-affordable-and-accessible-robotic-limb/">Your New Robotic Limb by Psyonic</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

Personal Safety Products with Sabre

March 11, 2022

<img src="https://i0.wp.com/thetechranch.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/image-8.png?resize=421%2C211&amp;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-22773" width="421" height="211" />Dave Nance with Marlo Anderson at CES 2022 <p>Marlo: Do you have safety concerns? Well, my friend Dave, might be able to help you a little bit. So welcome to the show. Dave.</p> <p>Dave: Thank you, Marla. appreciate being here. Thanks for having me.</p> <p>Marlo: Why are you at CES 2022.</p> <p>Dave: So we do have some connected products, say a smart pepper spray that, Oh, that’s interesting alerts your loved ones immediately when you’re in a situation where you know, when we want to let them know, or vice versa. If you have someone that you care about, who’s in a dangerous situation, you want to you want to know about it immediately. So we have that product available,</p> <p>Marlo: So how does that work? Exactly. I mean, if I, if I were, if you were coming out me and I use pepper spray on you, then that would want to alert the family that this just happened.</p> <p>Dave: Exactly. So we favor smart pepper spray, Bluetooth connects to your smartphone, yeah. And then that sends out a notification to your selected contacts immediately of your location that you’re in danger. And then it will follow you until you hit all safe. It also has a availability for professional monitoring as well. So the police can get there and help you out if need be, too.</p> <p>Marlo: That’s really clever. And now through the power of video editing, Ashley has joined us. And actually, now you’re not actually allowed to bring this into the show are you which is why you have pictures.</p> <p>Ashley: That’s correct. So have these cards to make it safe, okay, because we’re a safety brand. Right?</p> <p>Marlo: Right Thing. So this is actually the pepper spray that is connected.</p> <p>Ashley: So no, this is actually our newest pepper spray. And this is actually called the mighty discrete. So what this is, is a benefit when you’re going out and you want to have something that’s a little bit more compact and something that you can hide, and it’s not as obvious on you. And it also gives you 16 Verse and it goes a little bit further than our traditional sprays, even though it’s smaller, so you still get a big bang for your buck. Okay, so this is a personal alarm. So different from a pepper spray, this sounds a loud alarm to draw attention to you. In addition to the alarm, it also has a motion detector. So if you were on the go, if you were traveling, if you’re in a hotel room, you could set this up. And if someone were to walk in, it would actually wake you up. And because it’s a personal arm, this can be trout, you can travel anywhere with this any country, any state, you don’t have to worry about it.</p> <p>Dave: And so a lot of people think well, when I stay in the hotel, there’s that latch on the door, I don’t need that, right, a lot of people are staying in these Airbnb type places where they never even meet the owner and they have access to that place. So another thing you can do is this door security alarm, you shove that underneath the bedroom door, it blocks them from entering and it sounds an alarm to scare them off and wake you or interesting, even smaller is the door handle alarm. So when they touch that door handle on the outside of the room, it sounds the alarm as well.</p> <p>Ashley: And the benefit of our products is it actually works on both sides which most do not. So any door in any window it’s versatile across the board so it’s a really nice item and then talking about preventing the intruder from getting in. This item actually stops the door from opening but we have an upgraded model now with the alarm so it sounds an alarm. So not only will it stop the door, but it will alert you so that you can call for safety or leave the home if someone was coming in.</p> <p>Marlo: So it looks like this jams up underneath the door handle and then this goes to the floor and just literally stops it from being open. Yes, Karina and</p> <p>Dave: a lot of your viewers may already have a professionally installed home security system or you know one of the DIY connected home security systems here that you can control with an app they still buy this product is this prevents people from coming in. Yep. So you know the so get that notification that sound that alarm and whatnot, but then this keeps people out. Yeah, good combination. Yeah.</p> <p>Marlo: Yeah, very interesting. Well, thanks you guys. A lot of fun and good luck to you this year at CES. This is your “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.</p> Smart Pepper Spray, Motion Detecting Personal Alarms and other personal safety devices at CES 2022.

Transformative Plant-Based Ingredients with Myco

Now, I’m not talking about the psychedelic ones here I’m talking about what’s possible in the food realm. So Alan, with Myco has joined us today, Ellen, what you guys are doing is incredible. Absolutely incredible. And I know I’ve teased people a little bit already here. So tell me a little bit about what you guys are doing,</p> <p>Alan: you know, what we’re doing is very different. And what we’re doing is we’ve created a food processing platform that allows us to remove bad tasting things in plant based ingredients. through fermentation, what we’ve do is use a very complex organism, the root system of mushrooms, and it looks like we’re brewing beer stainless steel tanks to the ceiling, and we put different plant based ingredients in. And instead of adding a bunch of sugar, salt, and fat, to cover a bad taste, we ferment those problems away. And it allows us to make better for you products. So we take things like pea and rice protein, you mix them together. And you do that because there’s different amino acids in each one. Because you’re what you want to get is what’s called a complete protein. We are a b2b company. So we make an ingredient. And we work with other big food companies to sell them an ingredient that they can make things like plant based meats, plant based dairy, so you think about cheeses, and yogurts, and milks and burgers and chicken, but all from plant base, no meat products.</p> <p>Marlo: So what do you see on the horizon with this technology?</p> <p>Alan: You know, where I see this going is we will sometime this coming year, have a new product out that instead of improving pea and rice protein through this fermentation, we will be able to grow the mushroom biomass, which is the root system of the mushrooms as a complete protein. And we’re really excited about it. It’s it’s, it’s kind of the holy grail of what we’ve been working on is how to get to that point where we have a highly sustainable form of protein that can be produced in about seven days. So a cow takes a little longer than seven days. You can produce this in a week, by the way, </p> <p>Marlo: Where’s my chili? </p> <p>Alan: Chili is hot and ready to go! Not only do we have the chili, but we have our plant based cheese to go with it.</p> <p>Marlo: Go check that out as well.

And you know, up until now there hasn’t really been a lot of recreational vehicle choices to play in the snow. Yeah, that’s kind of a solution for that. So tell us what you got going on here</p> <p>Nicolas: So this is Moon bikes motors. So right here in front of you, you got one of our moon bikes. So it’s the world’s first all electric battery powered snow bike</p> <p>Marlo: I guess my first thinking is on electric vehicle, and you’re moving into the snow. Do you have any issues with battery life?</p> <p>Nicolas: Right now we’ve got two batteries that you can fit inside of our battery bank. Each of them will last you about an hour and a half. Oh, okay. Yeah. So three hours total. Very nice. And what’s nice is that the inside of our battery bank actually has some resistance. So when the battery is on and running, it’ll generate its own heat and insulation. Okay. So it’s comfortably running down to temperatures of negative 13 Negative 15 degrees Fahrenheit. So</p> <p>Marco: How does this feel in comparison to a snowmobile?</p> <p>Nicolas: Yes, so snowmobile is a lot bulkier, a lot bigger, a lot heavier, for sure. It is a bit more stable. But this one is a lot more playful with it being less than 200 pounds with the batteries inside of it. You know, if you tip it over, if it gets stuck, it’s really easy to pull out. Keep on going. It’s like I said, you know with that with that weight, it’s it’s very playful. So a lot like dirt bike, you kind of squeeze with your legs, use your hips and your body to turn uncarved and get that ski edge inside of the snow. Yeah. So you’re really moving a lot it is it is a workout. So</p> <p>Marlo: are these available in the United States?</p> <p>Nicolas: They are Yeah, so this year, we made 400 of them. Okay. 300 stayed in France, and 100 came here to the United States. Okay, I’m in bikes calm, you can reserve them and they’re going pretty quickly.</p> <p>Marlo: Oh, that’s very cool. This is your guru of “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson at CES 2022<br /></p> Nicolas Duperret explains to our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson the concept of MoonBikes and how awesome it is in snow. <p></p> <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/worlds-first-electric-snow-bike/">World’s First Electric Snow Bike</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

This may be the most fun at CES this year. So Thierry, tell me a little bit about the racing drone, or the racing car, I should say.</p> <p>Thierry: Maca is developing a new concept. And a new vehicle, which is a flying racing car, using hydrogen as energy vector. Our idea is to use this vehicle in the racing environment, to pull the technology faster than in other environment. And the idea is really to use this technology in the future on future flying taxi</p> <p>Marlo: you anticipate that hydrogen is going to be the fuel of the future. And you actually want to introduce that in by racing, flying cars, and as soon as possible, or what are you thinking there? </p> <p>Thierry: Yeah. As soon as possible. Of course, in terms of regulation, the racing is less regulated than people transportation and we know that during our pre development, because this project was born in Airbus company. And we spent three years developing that and during our development, we understood that it’s not possible to fly with batteries, because the NGO NGO runs is very low, few minutes with batteries. And it’s totally possible to remove the batteries to put a fuel cell, a hydrogen tank, and to increase significantly the the endurance of the flying car. </p> <p>Marlo: I know you have a bottle of it here, do you have a prototype that you’ve developed already that you actually have tested. </p> <p>Thierry: In 2019, we built a third scale prototype, which is around two, three meters, okay, to validate the architecture of the vehicle. And now we are in the in the step two to make the assembly of the scale one, and the scale one will fly. And of this year, it will be a simple flight, you know, without pilot on board, because this is a next step. We have to certify the vehicle with the pilot. And later we will need more investors— more money to develop this certified vehicle for the first racing around 2024-25</p> <p>Marlo: Wow. So notice that I’m speechless when he said that I was expecting you to be in the 2030s. So you’re thinking by 2025 You’re actually going to have a race. </p> <p>Thierry: Exactly. First events, okay. Offers right, because, you know, we are developing the vehicle, but we are also developing the environment for the racing. And we are working with peepers from Formula One who are very interested in our concept. And they help us to define the rules the future rules for these kinds of racing, futuristic racing. </p> <p>Marlo: Okay, so how fast do you expect these to go? We have made the calculation. </p> <p>Thierry: The expected speed is 250 kilometers per hour. 155 miles per hour. Quite fast. Close to a Formula One speed. a little bit less. </p> <p>MarIo: I’m looking forward to seeing this in 2024 2025. We’ll keep checking back in with you. Thank you theory. This is your “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.</p> Our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson is jumping into the future with CEO and co-founder Thierry De Boisvilliers!

This is absolutely amazing. So Max, tell us about what you have here.</p> <p><strong>Max: </strong>This is our scooter, his name is Lynx, our startup name is totem, we are out of Italy and the DC is made around the safety of the people. Basically, what we did was to do something completely different from the current school design, because we started from having three wheels in order to have a higher stability. But also what we do was to put a collision alert system based on artificial intelligence behind. This means that when you arrive, you can ride safely, and also using the camera that we put in the back of the scooter, you can stream the video here, and you don’t even need to turn behind to look what has happening because you can be stable and don’t lose the balance while riding.</p> <p>Marlo: so if you’re in like the bike, riding lane, for example, I mean, you always see people, they’re always checking your mirrors or whatever. And there is a value to knowing what’s going on behind you having the ability to almost have a rear view mirror going on here without having things coming off the handle. That’s kind of cool.</p> <p>Max:  Yeah, no, definitely. That’s why we thought about it. Actually, we put that behind them because we did a study and we saw that the higher number of accident actually happens from objects that comes from behind, right. That’s why we put there right, you’re already working on something else, also from the front side. So shows how the battery works. Yeah, the battery here, it’s pretty different from also the other scooters because it’s removable. You can remove from here. It’s based on our potential design, as you can see here. The point is, the good thing is you can take it to your desk and charge that into your desk or leaving the scooter where you want in your warehouse in your box, wherever. But it also breaks down right? Sure. Yeah, actually, the good thing about this scooter is this one, you can follow the easily from the side. And then you don’t have to carry out because this is also a handle and you can bring it with you as a luggage.</p> <p>Marlo: And how fast is a travel?</p> <p>Max: This is limited speed of 25 kilometers per hour. This is by law to keep Anyhow the scooter safer.</p> <p>Marlo: Yeah, I love the fact that it has three wheels because obviously it’s gonna be a lot more stable than most routers, the wider platform, absolutely fantastic for people like me because I still like to get out and do things. Yeah, but I want that comfort, I guess of knowing that I’m not going to fall off. Yeah, you know, where do we find more information about this?</p> <p>Max: You can find everything on our website www.efe.com. So check us out. Very good.</p> <p>Marlo: This is your guru of geek Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.

While I’m thinking hexa grow might be the way to go. Alessandro, co founder of Hexagro, tell me a little bit about what you have here.</p> <p><strong>Alessandro</strong>: So we are right in front of the living farming tree. This is our product and technology what we do is that we develop different modular components for urban farming so that we’re building a pop up a platform for urban farming, everything runs on its own. There are sensors down here and up here to monitor air quality. And in the meantime, you have LED lighting here you will see in just a second Oh, here we go. And then we using eye pressure aeroponics which is different from hydroponics. So the plants in here they don’t have water as you see there is just a spray that comes out. This is 40% more efficient in hydroponics. 98% more efficient than traditional soil growing.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Okay, okay, so how big of a module can you make? I mean, is this is this standard size? Are you thinking about much larger</p> <p><strong>Alessandro</strong>: all of these components are very modular. So right now you’re looking at the medium configuration of the living farming tree does more one would be like with the four of here without the tree on top, and then you can make it even bigger.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Okay, so each each layer has its own lighting and all of that what have you grown in these so far? So right</p> <p><strong>Alessandro</strong>: now we’ve been testing everything from roots, vegetables, potatoes and stuff to Yeah, that’s sweet. That’s the beauty of aeroponics because we hydro you cannot make root vegetables with aeroponics you can and then we have leafy greens aromatic plants back in Europe we are very focused on medicinal plants so that you can just harvest them and enjoy them in a tea or some other kind of neck at office or at home</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: the amount of time it takes for you to actually mature plants. Yeah, does it increase as you’re growing potatoes I mean, yeah, it’s 90 days for it before it can be ready to harvest is it 60 days with this are so</p> <p><strong>Alessandro</strong>: definitely faster it is fast. I can tell you for leafy greens, for instance, from seed to harvest, we take in about 1820 days. Okay, so it’s like four times faster.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Oh, my goodness. Yeah. And it’s just because you’re in a controlled environment.</p> <p><strong>Alessandro</strong>: It’s because of aeroponics is because of LED lighting. Everything is very optimized. And then we have a mixture of nutrients and water like organic nutrients, so everything is like pop up in boosting.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Amazing and where do we find more information</p> <p><strong>Alessandro</strong>: so you can look it up on our website? It’s exago.io x with the H and x in the middle.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Yes. And thank you so much. I’ll check it out everybody.

It’s amazing what has gone on in this industry in the last couple years, a lot of people call it adaptive printing have Jeff beam with Formlabs. Next to me here, Jeff, thanks for being with us today.</p> <p><strong>Jeff</strong> : Thank you. Pleasure to be here.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So tell me about, you know, some of the advances you’ve seen in the last couple of years. In 3d printing,</p> <p><strong>Jeff</strong>: we actually had three new things that we announced yesterday. So that’s what we do here at CES, we do. So we have a new version of our desktop, our standard printer called the form three plus, that is much faster and also has. So when you print with SLA, you get little support marks where sometimes there may be supports that are holding the part on it. And with the new version of our printer, they are tearaway supports that are that do not leave any surface mark. And so it’s much easier, there is a new post processing thing called AR build platform to that once this part is done, you actually just squeeze the handles and the parts just fall right off of the build platform, making it much easier to get these parts. And then the third thing we introduced was an ESD safe resin electrostatic discharge. So electrostatic can cause a lot of problems if you’re in electronics manufacturing. And so this allows you to create parts that dissipate electrostatic charges so that they’re safe for you know, electronics enclosures or chips or, or things like that Formlabs uses a type of 3d printing called stereo lithography that uses a laser to cure a photopolymer resin that creates an incredible array of products out of it. Now you brought</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: some samples. I think these are interesting. So just go ahead and talk about each of these.</p> <p><strong>Jeff</strong> : Yeah, I did. This is the most typical sort of use case for 3d printing where Oxo, they use us for rapid prototyping. So if you take that that’s actually two different materials, and that they can rapidly prototype and iterate and sort of test out okay, do I like this design? Does it feel good? Does it work? That’s amazing. I’ll give two more examples. Okay, one that I have in my hand and one that you haven’t realized yet, one that I have in my hand is this is actually electroplated. So this is printed in one of our standard materials, but it is then use a process called electroplating. Just like that, but then it’s electroplated and you end up with a metal like parts, but printed at a fraction the cost of metal 3d printing, and so it’s a much easier to print. So the last example is these shoes, and it’s gonna be hard to see can I use Yeah, this is actually directly printed on our printers. And it’s a special type of resin that we made with him called rebound that provides really good you know, I use these for running and it provides really good rebound. It’s extremely tear resistant. I’ve been wearing these now solid for a year and a half and they look great.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: And if we want to find out more information online if you</p> <p><strong>Jeff</strong>: want to find out more information go to formlabs.com</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Alright, Jeff, it’s been a pleasure.

Thanks for being here.</p> <p><strong>Greg</strong>: Thanks for having me.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So tell me about what you have here at CES this year.</p> <p><strong>Greg</strong>: Yeah, well, what we have is immersive visualization, advanced visualization, we’re reaching a point of diminishing returns with x and y. And Z. Zed is the frontier now with visualization there, that’s where the, the data, that’s where the more stuff is going to come from, for everything from work to play to communication, you know, at home, in our cars, that stereoscopic stuff that’s hidden behind things that you can only see because of parallax.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: And that’s, and you’re doing this on a flat screen that’s not attached to my head. Right,</p> <p><strong>Greg</strong>: right. Yeah. Right with with taking this off, okay. And it’s, it’s a display, it’s like, like a television, right? It’s in front of you. But it’s more than that. It’s a portal, it’s a window. And it acts like a window in that when you look, you see more that way when you lean this way and more that way when you lean this way, which is cool. motion parallax. Yeah. When you combine motion parallax with stereoscopic imagery and very high pixel count, dense pixel count, you’re quite experienced.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So do you see this more in the home or the workplace right now?</p> <p><strong>Greg</strong>: Oh, very much both. Okay. We’re going down all kinds of verticals in work, anything from CAD design, BIM, model design, industrial design, and then to work games. In the automobile, certain things, if they are in front of other things will be more important once you see them. </p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So how do we find out more information on Dimenco? </p> <p><strong>Greg</strong>: Dimenco.eu</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Thanks for joining us.

Reduce Hair Loss with Capillus

<img src="https://i0.wp.com/thetechranch.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/capillus.png?resize=456%2C253&amp;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-22655" width="456" height="253" />Director of Business Development, Fernando Bermudez with Marlo Anderson at CES 2022 <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: As you noticed, I don’t have a lot of hair left on my head. Fernando, though, might have a solution for me. So what do you have going on with Capillus?</p> <p><strong>Fernando</strong>: Well, Marlo, you still have hair, you’ve lost a lot. Yes, but you still have some if you want to fight, there are three FDA approved or clear solutions. One is finasteride which is a drug that you need to take then you have minoxidil which is topical, that you need to put twice a day on your scalp. And you have low level laser therapy, which is what we brought here at CES.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Okay, so it looks like it’s built into a cap. So what do I do I just wear this thing so long every day</p> <p><strong>Fernando</strong>: you just need to wear it for six minutes a day, has no side effects, no drugs involved. So you just basically place it in your head and then you see it turns on automatically. Yeah. So for six minutes, I’m just having my therapy. And basically, how it works is the laser is able to penetrate the scalp and stimulate the mitochondria within the cells to produce thicker, fuller hair.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So does this work for pretty much everybody? Or if you have like standard male pattern baldness,</p> <p><strong>Fernando</strong>: exactly. Well, it works. It’s FDA clear for androgenetic alopecia, which is male and female pattern mold works in both in both men and women. And it takes six months to a year to start seeing results. So don’t think it’s anything magic, it’s scientific. The only thing is it takes time and it requires you to comply with the treatment in the long run. Like any other hair loss treatments, so overwhelming the people who comply with the treatment, they have 95% access rate, okay, and on average, they’re growing 51% More hair. It doesn’t mean that if you have no hair, you’re gonna grow hair. It means that in the cycle in the hair loss cycle, you have dormant hairs that are there but they are in a resting phase, okay, so the cap this technology is able to bring this back to to grow in phase. That’s what we want. And that is what gives you a higher count. And it gives you the fuller look.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: How do we find out more information?</p> <p><strong>Fernando</strong>: Capillus.com</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: and the products is available ready to go right now?</p> <p><strong>Fernando</strong>: Absolutely. We sell online we sell through many partners. Many doctors recommended us</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: very cool. I appreciate it. Very good. Thank you. This is your “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.</p> Director of Business Development, Fernando Bermudez introduces to our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson a new solution to our hair problems. <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/reduce-hair-loss-with-capillus/">Reduce Hair Loss with Capillus</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

Hassle Free Tea Time with Bru

February 19, 2022

<img src="https://i0.wp.com/thetechranch.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/image.png?ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-22645" width="0" height="0" />Co-founder, Bodgan Krinitchko with Marlo Anderson at CES 2022 <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: One of the challenges for tea lovers is the length of time a lot of times it takes to make tea. Well, I’m visiting with Bogdan, here he is with a company called Bru out of Switzerland, of course known for hot chocolate, right? And maybe other chocolate things, but I think you might be known for tea in the future. So tell me a little bit about what you got going on here.</p> <p><strong>Bodgan</strong>: Yeah, thanks for having us here. At Bru we are about to simplifying the tea bagging process, but without changing it. So it’s still a traditional tea making process— the tea steeps in the machine, but we totally automated. We remove all the hassle that you have you make it a manual way by using a kettle or something like that</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: We were watching you earlier, you were actually measuring tea and putting it into like a metal cup exactly that went in. So tell talk about that process a little bit</p> <p><strong>Bodgan</strong>: So what you saw is basically a seed  is the seed the whole city. So and the machine takes care of all the other parameters. So the steeping time, the water amount, the water temperature, and it also adds consistency to the whole tea preparation</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: and I can use any tea I want?</p> <p><strong>Bodgan</strong>: That’s exactly the point. So we don’t want to force the user to use only one specific tea found in capsules. We just want to provide a tool that simplifies the process. So you can use any tea loose leaf tea tea and tea bag, so you can use fresh herbs just put it in the machine, press the button, and the perfect drink will be prepared.</p> <p><strong>Marlo: </strong>Right. So while we were talking now, this was actually steeping tea. And here we go.</p> <p><strong>Bodgan</strong>: Now it’s serving the tea. And now also, if you want to add convenience into the tea preparation, you need to solve the cleaning problem and we solve that with some patented technology that we’re using here. So patent granted, not just applied. Granted patent very strong and we made just a black tea. Now if you want to make another tea, the only thing that you need to do is actually just take like open the lid and remove this brewing chamber. That’s it. You don’t need to clean the machine or anything. Just change it out and make another cup of tea. </p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So is this available on the market already? </p> <p><strong>Bodgan</strong>: With data pre sold or like a crowdfunding preset campaign… We plan to launch in a couple of months. We are right now in the certification stage. So yeah, in a couple of months, it will be available in the stores.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Congratulations on all that. Fantastic. So this is your “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.</p> Co-founder, Bodgan Krinitchko shows us the first ever automated tea machine.

And he has the most amazing unique. I don’t know what you want to call this—- this car. It works. If you’re a Mario Kart fan, you’re gonna love this. So tell me about what you got going on here with Battle Racing.</p> <p><strong>Mauricio: </strong>So, now we have electric go karts. Modified it, and added some hardware to make all the power ups in real life. So now we have a shooter for a ball, like the shell, so when you shoot the ball, and you hit the rear of the other guard, you block him for five seconds. We also have the shooter for the bananas, it’s the discs and when you cross over the desk in on the floor, you get blocked at five seconds also. All the power ups that we have are based or inspired from Mario Kart. So, we also have the boost, double speed, we have the star, double speed and when you cross near to other kart, we block it for five seconds.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So how many people can play at a time?</p> <p><strong>Mauricio</strong>: Only eight people can do it in our tracks.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: And how big are your tracks. So, do you have to go to one of your facilities or can you do this in anywhere?</p> <p><strong>Mauricio</strong>: Our facilities. So, the first one will be in Miami on April.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: I really really want to see you drive this. So, if you guys are ready.</p> <p><strong>Mauricio</strong>: Here we go. </p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So I didn’t hear any Yahoos or anything while you’re driving. You must be used to doing this already.</p> <p><strong>Mauricio</strong>: Yeah, we need the checkpoints area. So we are seeing the power apps. You now have the shooter in the front and we can shoot the bananas. That’s the disk. And we do it while we’re driving. So we can send the star, bananas, the mushrooms and all the stuff that we do it like in Mario Kart.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So congratulations on your idea. This is fantastic. Battle racing everybody. Go check this thing out coming to Miami pretty soon and hopefully up to 100 other locations in the United States. This is your “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.</p> Mauricio Buritica demonstrates to our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson how battle racing might be the new experience your looking for.

It’s really good. So I need to know more about the process of, you know, what did I just eat?</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: So, it is vegan cheese based on almond milk.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So you’re taking what would be considered traditional almond milk and converting that to cheese? Correct? How’s that possible?</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: That technology has been around for more than 50 years actually. Conversion of plant based to protein and what generally people are saying is vegan cheese don’t taste very good, right? So what we felt like we’ve accomplished is we’ve solved that problem of making the cheese taste good. Vegan cheese has two problems, one taste and two nutrition— and we solve both of those problems.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: This cheese that you brought here is pretty new.</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: It is new. It’s literally coming off the production line as we speak.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Wow. And you have a sample here?</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: I have sample here. This is the shredded mozzarella and I’ve got a bunch of bottles. I’ll just give you a couple of samples.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: It looks just like mozzarella. This is impressive. Does it melt like mozzarella?</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: It does melt like mozzarella! So taste and consistency. This is our spreadable cream cheese—- spreadable cheese will come in eight different flavors right now. But we want to follow a particular company that offers 31 flavors so depending on season, depending on trend we’ll offer that flavor.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: And cream cheeses?</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: And cream cheeses. Let’s say in the fall people are looking for spice pumpkin flavor. So in the fall we’ll offer that flavor.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Okay, right. All plant based.</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: All almond milk.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Oh, I’m sorry. I’m thinking plant based all the time.</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: So, the cube cheese that you tasted.  It’ll come in that format. There’s 12 in there.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So this is just like a snackers. This is fantastic. So, how do we find out more about all your products?</p> <p><strong>Andrew</strong>: It’s on our website armoredfresh.com or you can go to yangyoo.com And you can find out about our products.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: at CES 2022 This is your “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson.</p> Armored Fresh President and CEO, Andrew Yu brings our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson to the vegan world. <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/22626-2-cheese/">Bring Back the Dairy with Armored Fresh Cheese!</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

Your Privacy Matters with Santor

February 16, 2022

<img src="https://i0.wp.com/thetechranch.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/Santor.png?resize=465%2C258&amp;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-22616" width="465" height="258" />Santor CEO, Alexandre Santos with Marlo Anderson at CES 2022 <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Standing next to me is Alexander with Santor. Now these guys have a solution to maybe a lot of the security challenges that we have nowadays, right, especially with Google and your Alexa device in your house because they’re always on right? Isn’t that right?</p> <p><strong>Alexandre: </strong>Exactly. Well, if you start thinking before, there was microphones around us, but not a lot like today, so a lot of microphones are listening live. Like in all the IoT devices that come to market, they have a microphone built in. So technically, our device emits audible and non audible noises to disrupt the microphones. </p> <p><strong>Alexandre: </strong>We started with the UMG 52, that we renamed for the name of HARP . Which is the bigger model. And here at CES, we are here to show our Kickstarter new launch that we are doing for a smaller version, that it’s called the HARP mini, meaning the heart has two modes of protection. One is audible with personalized voice frequencies that you can add your own voice inside. And this is basically to make people not understand what you’re saying. So this is audible, you don’t want the people to hear what you’re saying, basically. So this is good for different scenarios. And the other mode, which is the discreet mode that we call, this is more like something that is above our hearing level, level of that we can hear with our ears basically.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: WhenI listen to this thing, it almost sounds like a Bluetooth, that’s too far away to listen to the music you’re trying to listen to. So you see hear little bits and pieces, but you really can’t make it out. This is kind of what this does. So are you thinking that you know, as you guys are getting started here with this, that this is more of a corporate type of thing? Or do you see this being used more in the household right now</p> <p><strong>Alexandre</strong>: The wars are no longer with firearms, it’s in economic wars. And when you start looking on the scale, like we see a lot of industrial espionage going on. So our bigger unit is a unit that is restricted that we sell only to governments. But the smaller unit, basically, we decided to come to offer privacy to everyone and to bring a solution that would be good for businesses, small startups to have a device like that, to prevent and to eventually reduce the risks of information leakage.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Gotcha. I gotcha. So all right, so kickstarter.com, look for Santor and you can get involved into the Kickstarter. I’m assuming you have a website as well.</p> <p><strong>Alexandre</strong>: Santor.com</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: S A N T O R.com. So check this out everybody. Alexander, really appreciate you being here. At CES 2022, this is your “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson.</p> CEO, Alexandre Santos shows our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson how to keep our spaces safe and private with Santor. <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/your-privacy-matters-with-santor/">Your Privacy Matters with Santor</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

Stay Safe from Germs With Soapy

It’s always been a big deal. But of course, it’s front and center nowadays. So Max, right over here has a solution that really, especially with children, right,  but let’s talk about your innovation and tell me how you’re changing the world with Soapy. </p> <p><strong>Max</strong>: Well, we are actually trying to help people wash their hands in the best way. We try to gamify something that in some way you can consider boring, make it fun and at the same time, hygienic, safe, easy. That’s exactly what we’re doing.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: How does this work, somebody comes up and just puts their hands in there and pretty much the magic just starts?</p> <p><strong>Max</strong>: Pretty much. So we use a variety of sensors that can see that your hands are actually in and then manage the entire cycle for you: water, soap, time. It will also show you how to wash your hands properly. And then it’ll analyze and tell  if you did it the way you are supposed to. Let’s try it! So this is WHO and CDC guidelines of how you are supposed to scrub and rub your hands. At that time, right now, we have several sensors that are analyzing motion, time, gesture and your temperature to verify that you’re actually doing everything properly. All of that is happening simultaneously to the process, not on the cloud right here at the system. We’re using artificial intelligence for that. We can also advertise for you environmental messages, or just, you know, advertisements, the water is preheated and dispenses 95% less than any other faucet. So we save a lot of water over here and saving a lot of soap to make things environmentally friendly.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So, let’s see if I get a smiley face or a frowny face now.</p> <p> <strong>Max</strong>: 100! 100! That’s the way!</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: That was easy, because I could just follow the guidelines here. And yeah, that’s interesting. So why is it so important to have your hands clean?</p> <p><strong>Max</strong>: Well, it starts with infection prevention and control. So, we usually think that we wash our hands properly. But the bottom line is that our mind span and with all of the speed of things happening around us. You don’t have the time for that. I need to go back to work, I need to do some medical procedure, I need to take my kids out of the kindergarten. We don’t have the time to stop for 20 seconds and do things properly. You can do it over here. We gained that fight for you. You don’t have to worry about soap or water or the temperature, you don’t need to control anything. Just wash your hands and keep yourself healthy.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: So how do we find out more information? Are these available to the general public yet?  </p> <p><strong>Max</strong>: It is? We started back in 2018. Okay, but we are commercially active in 15 countries around the globe before of course over here in the States. Okay, so if you just go into soapy.care, you can get to our shop and order online.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Appreciate your time Max.

So tell us about it.</p> <p><strong>Cyril</strong>: So, we created a new generation of instruments and there is an embedded sensor, so much more sensitive than your eyes and you can use an app to control the telescopes, you just have to choose an object, for example: a galaxy, a a nebula, the moon, you click on it, and the telescope will automatically points the objects, and you will observe in live on your screen the wonderful object on the universe.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: That’s absolutely amazing. So I love looking at comets, right? Will it actually track a comet for you?</p> <p><strong>Cyril</strong>: Yes, we can. We can see the comets and all the things around really.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: That’s pretty cool. So what’s the magnification level of this?</p> <p><strong>Cyril</strong>: It depends on the product, but it’s around 50 times. To give you an idea, you can take your pictures of two times the size of the moon on the sensor and you can take pictures of galaxies at 100 million light years, so very, very far…</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Wow. Wow. Okay, very cool. Can you speak to your device to find the constellation that you’re looking for? Is there something you type in—  how does that work?</p> <p><strong>Cyril</strong>: I will show you! So, here we have Stellina, our smallest product, we have three products. This is the first one at $1,500. You just have to use an iPad or an iPhone, there is a dedicated app called singularity and when you are in the singularity, you have many objects. So you can choose by category for example, galaxies, and you will have onwards and onwards of galaxies with recommendations depending on your geolocation. You just have to click on it and click on observe. After a few seconds, it will move and after something like 30 seconds you will see the first pictures here. And the beautiful thing is the fact that minutes after minutes using the life stacking system, you will see the quality of the pictures getting better and better.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Wow. And where can we find more information about your product?</p> <p><strong>Cyril</strong>:<a href="http://www.vaionis.com"> www.vaionis.com</a></p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: Alright, very good. I appreciate you being on the program today. This is Marlo Anderson your “Guru of Geek” at CES 2022.</p> <p>CEO, Cyril Dupuy delivers the stars closer to our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson with Stellina an outstanding telescope that lets you navigate the galaxies at a much more easier way.</p> <p></p> <p></p> <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/find-your-zodiac-constellation-with-vaionis-telescopes/">Find your Zodiac Constellation with Vaionis Telescopes</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

So, tell us a little bit about it.</p> <p class="has-text-align-left"><strong>Aryeh</strong>: So, we created Six Degrees, it’s a learning algorithm that tries to adapt and understand what a person is doing. Once you put it on wherever you have motion,  it starts recording itself, five minutes of onboarding . It creates kind of an understanding of what you can do and what you can’t do—  and from there it builds an algorithm that controls any cell phone, tablet, computer with no touch communication. You just turn on the Bluetooth, you don’t have to download an app and you’re connected. </p> <p><strong>Aryeh</strong>: We created this for people with disabilities so for anyone that lost their fine motor skill, the idea is that they don’t have to use their fingers anymore to use the touchpad or a mouse, you put it on wherever you can you move around and now it becomes the finger and touch screen— it becomes your mouse, becomes your keyboard and just takes over everything the same motion that you would use on your tablet, the same motion you need for your computer, for an Oculus– anything you want, that’s where we’re at.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: This must be pretty emotional for people. The ability to actually start interacting.  </p> <p><strong>Aryeh</strong>:  The responses, that’s the reason why we gotta keep going you might say. In the hard times, every single time we were struggling we would go to somebody and see how they’re reacting, it changed everything. The moment you see someone that is in a wheelchair and has CP—  can’t use any of the devices in the market right now start playing a game I mean most of the day he’s in the wheelchair he’s trying to communicate— just that simple thing of playing a game, the joy we had to fight to get the device back</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: I mean, it’s pretty amazing!</p> <p><strong>Aryeh</strong>: We did this because of some of the disabled veterans from Israel—  I have a lot of family like my father-in-law served in Vietnam War, my family in the U.S. all of them in the military. It’s one of the biggest things we want to do.  It comes from there, we want to help veterans so it’s a big thing for us to start working with the VA to work with any disabled veteran pretty much.</p> <p><strong>Marlo</strong>: You’re  helping people, obviously we want to help you too. So,  how do we help you, how do we get the word out, how do people find you</p> <p><strong>Aryeh</strong>: 6degrees.tech,  you can also find us on LinkedIn and Facebook.<strong>Marlo</strong>: Aryeh, It’s been a pleasure. Take care. This is the “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson at CES 2022</p> <p></p> CTO and Co-founder, Aryeh Katz moves forward with our “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson with a new way to help people with disabilities. <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/go-hands-free-playing-games-on-your-phone-with-this-new-smart-device/">Play Games Hands Free With This New Smart Device!</a> appeared first on <a href="https://thetechranch.com">The Tech Ranch</a>.</p>

Pepper Spray that is Smart? Personal Safety Products that help you stay, well, safe.

January 25, 2022

<img width="320" height="180" src="https://i0.wp.com/thetechranch.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/mq3.jpg?resize=320%2C180&amp;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-22511" />Dave Nance, Ashley Fieldler and <br />Marlo Anderson at CES 2022 <p><strong>Marlo Anderso</strong>n 0:06<br />Do you have safety concerns? Well, my friend Dave, might be able to help you a little bit. So welcome to the show, Dave.</p> <p><strong>Dave Nance</strong> 0:13<br />Thank you, Marlo. appreciate being here. Thanks for having me.</p> <p><strong> Marlo Anderson</strong> 0:16<br />Why are you at CES 2022.</p> <p><strong> Dave Nance</strong> 0:18<br />So we do have some connected products, say a smart pepper spray that, Oh, that’s interesting, alert your loved ones immediately when you’re in a situation where you know, we want to let them know or vice versa. If you have someone that you care about who’s in a dangerous situation, you want to you want to know about it immediately. So we have that product available, too.</p> <p><strong>Marlo Anderson</strong> 0:36<br />So how does that work? Exactly. I mean, if I were if you were coming out me and I use pepper spray on you, then that would want to alert the family that this just happened</p> <p> <strong>Dave Nance</strong> 0:43<br />exactly. So we favor smart pepper spray, Bluetooth connects to your smartphone. And then that sends out a notification to your selected contacts immediately of your location that you’re in danger. And then it will follow you until you hit all safe. It also has a availability for professional monitoring as well. So the police can get there and help you out if need be, too. That’s really clever.</p> <p><strong>Marlo Anderson</strong> 1:05<br />And now through the power of video editing, Ashley has joined us. And actually, now you’re not actually allowed to bring this into the show are you which is why you have pictures.</p> <p><strong>Ashley Fieldler</strong> 1:16<br />That’s correct. So you have these cards to make it safe. Okay, because we’re a safety brand. Right?</p> <p><strong>Marlo Anderson </strong> 1:21<br />Right Thing. So this is actually the pepper spray that is connected.</p> <p><strong>Ashley Fieldler </strong>1:28<br />So no, this is our newest pepper spray. And this is actually called the mighty discrete. So what this is, is a benefit when you’re going out and you want to have something that’s a little bit more compact, and something that you can hide, and it’s not as obvious on you. And it also gives you 16 Verse and it goes a little bit further than our traditional sprays, even though it’s smaller, so you still get a big bang for your buck. Okay, so this is a personal alarm. So different from a pepper spray, this sounds a loud alarm to draw attention to you. In addition to the alarm, it also has a motion detector. So if you were on the go, if you were traveling, if you were in a hotel room, you could set this up. And if someone were to walk in, it would actually wake you up. And because it’s a personal arm, this can be trout, you can travel anywhere with this any country, any state, you don’t have to worry about</p> <p><strong>Dave Nance</strong> 2:13<br />it. And so a lot of people think well, when I stay in the hotel, there’s that latch on the door, I don’t need that, right, a lot of people are staying in these Airbnb type places where they never even meet the owner and they have access to that place. So another thing you can do is this door security alarm, you shove that underneath the bedroom door, it blocks them from entering, and it sounds an alarm to scare them off and wake you or interesting, even smaller is the door handle alarm. So when they touch that door handle on the outside of the room, it sounds the alarm as well.</p> <p><strong>Ashley Fieldler </strong> 2:42<br />And the benefit of our products is it actually works on both sides, which most do not. So any door in any window, it’s versatile across the board. So it’s a really nice item and then talking about preventing the intruder from getting in. This item actually stops the door from opening. But we have an upgraded model now with the alarm so it sounds an alarm. So not only will it stop the door, but it will alert you so that you can call for safety or leave the home if someone was coming in.</p> <p><strong>Marlo Anderson</strong> 3:06<br />So it looks like this jams up underneath the door handle. And then this goes to the floor and just literally stops it from being open. Yes, Marlo, and</p> <p><strong>Dave Nance</strong> 3:14<br /> Yes, Marlo, and a lot of your viewers may already have a professionally installed home security system, or you know, one of the DIY connected home security systems here that you can control with an app they still will buy this product is this prevents people from coming in. Yep. So you know, they’ll still get that notification that sound that alarm and whatnot. But then this keeps people out. Yeah, good combination.</p> <p><strong>Marlo Anderson</strong> 3:34<br />Yeah. Yeah, very interesting. Well, thanks you guys. A lot of fun and good luck to you this year at CES. This is your guru of geek Marlo Anderson at CES 2022.</p> <p></p> <p>The post <a href="https://thetechranch.com/pepper-spray-that-is-smart-personal-safety-products-that-help-you-stay-well-safe/">Pepper Spray that is Smart?

3D Printing is Amazing Again! CES 2022 Update

January 17, 2022

<p></p> <img width="946" height="654" src="https://i0.wp.com/thetechranch.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/Jeff-Boehm-Formlabs-Marlo-Anderson.jpg?resize=946%2C654&amp;ssl=1" alt="" class="wp-image-22480" />Jeff Boehm representing Formlabs with “Guru of Geek” Marlo Anderson Marlo Anderson (00:04) <p>3D printing. It’s amazing what has gone on in this industry in the last couple of years. A lot of people call it adaptive printing. I have Jeff Boehm with Formlabs next to me here. Jeff, thanks for being with us today.</p> Jeff Boehm (00:15) <p>Thank you. Pleasure to be here.</p> Marlo Anderson (00:17) <p>Tell me about some of the advances you’ve seen in the last couple of years in 3D printing.</p> Jeff Boehm (00:24) <p>We actually had three new things that we announced yesterday. That’s what we do here at CES.</p> Marlo Anderson (00:28) <p>That’s what we do.</p> Jeff Boehm (00:29<a href="https://www.happyscribe.com/transcriptions/3d24a93d7649426aa21cd131a0282fe2/edit_v2?position=29.57&amp;utm_source=happyscribe&amp;utm_medium=document_deep_link&amp;utm_campaign=export_docx&amp;utm_content=3d24a93d7649426aa21cd131a0282fe2">)</a> <p>So we have a new version of our desktop, our standard printer called the form three plus, that is much faster and also has so when you print with SLA, you get little support marks where sometimes there may be supports that are holding the part up. And with the new version of our printer, they are tear away supports that do not leave any surface Mark. And so it’s much easier. There is a new post processing thing called our build platform, too, that once this part is done, you actually just squeeze the handles and the parts just fall right off of the build platform, making it much easier to get these parts. And then the third thing we introduced was an ESD safe resin, electrostatic discharge. So electrostatic can cause a lot of problems if you’re in electronics manufacturing. And so this allows you to create parts that dissipate electrostatic charges so that they are safe for electronics enclosures or chips or things like that. Formlabs uses a type of 3D printing called Stereolithography that uses a laser to cure a photopolymer resin that creates an incredible array of products out of it.</p> Marlo Anderson (01:37) <p>Now you brought some samples, and I think these are interesting. So just go ahead and talk about each of these.</p> Speaker 2 (01:42) <p>Yeah, I did. This is the most typical sort of use case for 3D printing, where Oxo, they use us for rapid prototyping. So if you take that that’s actually two different materials and that they can rapidly prototype and iterate and sort of test out. Okay. Do I like this design? Does it feel good? Does it work? That’s amazing. I’ll give two more examples.</p>  (02:01) <p>Okay.</p> Jeff Boehm <a href="https://www.happyscribe.com/transcriptions/3d24a93d7649426aa21cd131a0282fe2/edit_v2?position=122.36&amp;utm_source=happyscribe&amp;utm_medium=document_deep_link&amp;utm_campaign=export_docx&amp;utm_content=3d24a93d7649426aa21cd131a0282fe2">(</a>02:02<a href="https://www.happyscribe.com/transcriptions/3d24a93d7649426aa21cd131a0282fe2/edit_v2?position=122.36&amp;utm_source=happyscribe&amp;utm_medium=document_deep_link&amp;utm_campaign=export_docx&amp;utm_content=3d24a93d7649426aa21cd131a0282fe2">)</a> <p>One that I have in my hand and one that you haven’t realized yet, one that I have in my hand is this is actually electroplated. So this is printed in one of our standard materials, but it is then uses a process called electroplating just like that. But then it’s electroplated, and you end up with a metal like part, but printed at a fraction of the cost of metal 3D printing. And so it’s a much easier to print. So the last example is these shoes, and it’s going to be hard to see. Can I use this is actually directly printed on our printers, and it’s a special type of resin that we made with them called Rebound, that provides really good I use these for running, and it provides really good rebound. It’s extremely tear resistant I’ve been wearing these now solid for a year and a half app and they look great. And if we want to find out more information online if you want to find out more information, go to formlabs.com.</p> Marlo Anderson (02:54) <p>All right, Jeff. It’s been a pleasure.
