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.

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/

CES 2018: L’Oréal UV Sense

Allison interviews Dr. Guive Balooch from L’Oréal about their UV Sense sun safety technology. Dr. Balooch described two new wearable products at CES: a special edition version of My UV Patch and a brand new sensor called UV Sense.
