CES 2018: LIZN Wireless Hearpieces

Allison interviews Mads Rugholm from LIZN about their new wireless “hearpieces”. LIZN earphones make it easier to hear in a noisy environment by amplifying sound in the direction the wearer is pointed and by enhancing consonants in speech. These devices are not aimed at those who are hearing impaired but rather those who struggle to understand speech when there is a lot of ambient noise. LIZN hearpieces offer a Bluetooth connection to your mobile device so they also can be used to listen to music, make phone calls and access digital assistants. They are small, simplistic, easy to use, and relatively inexpensive at $199. The setting is CES Unveiled at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas. Learn more at https://www.lizn.biz/

The show isn’t too long this week, but it’s action packed. We’ll start with a conversation about what surprised Steve and me about HomePod. Then we’ve got Steve in front of the microphone (and camera) with an interview from CES with Fortem about their Drone Killing radar. I’ve got an interview with OWC at CES about their wicked fast Thunderbolt 3 Storage and their docks. Then I’ll tell you about how we finally broke down and installed a smart lock – the August Smart Lock Pro + Connect. Back to CES and we’ll talk to Guardzilla with their 360 security camera. We’ll wind up the show with a review of the Belkin Valet Power Pack that charges both your iPhone and your Apple Watch with a built-in Apple Watch charger puck.

CES 2018: Fortem TrueView Radar for Drones

I interview Timothy Bean from Fortem Technologies about their new, compact radar designed for use on drones. The TrueView radar is lightweight (< 1.5 lbs), draws little power (37 W) and enables beyond visual line-of-sight autonomy for drones. This radar allows the drone operator to quickly and easily detect objects from the air at long range to avoid manned aircraft or other non-cooperative objects such as birds or other drones. Optional modules allow for complete end-to-end integration for tracking, classification, command and control, and pre-integrated autopilots. Using TrueView-equipped drones, companies can provide safe and cost-effective package delivery services, large infrastructure inspections, border patrols, etc. Once federal laws are modified, a drone equipped with the TrueView radar and a net gun can be used to locate and take down other drones flying in unauthorized areas. The setting is Pepcom at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas. Learn more at http://www.fortemtech.com/r20.html
