Our expertise ranges across technologies and industries: home healthcare, adtech, wellness, and urban safety, among others. With experience in software and hardware design, we’ve built voice recognition platforms and wearables, mini-robots and home healthcare devices, advanced displays and location-based apps. Here is a sample of our work.
PedX is a device for families with small children like my own who worry about those very dangerous urban intersections. Attached to a stroller, the system increases your visibility to vehicles and pedestrians via three "awareness" features for heightened safety: 1) a super-bright "running" LED; 2) a loud electronic horn; 3) a rapid-fire, 1-touch camera for documenting bad drivers.
For the home healthcare market, Madge is a mini-robot that assists in therapeutic care for the elderly and those with physical disabilities. Using voice recognition, text-to-speech, and programming with semi-autonomous AI, Madge is a "nudge," helping to direct the day's exercises, therapies, and other parts of the daily routine.
Now available at bookstores and online, Charles Hamilton's book on the Beaglebone Black includes over 60 detailed recipes for making things with this credit card-sized microcomputer.
