Pepper:Humanoid Robot

Posted by admin on January 18, 2017 in Spotlight |

SoftBank’s ambitious android is touted as the world’s first robot that can understand emotions. Pepper is a humanoid robot that takes his surroundings into consideration to react pro-actively using proprietary algorithms. Pepper also comes equipped with capabilities and an interface that enables communication with people, including the latest voice recognition technology, superior joint technology to realize graceful gestures, and emotion recognition that analyzes expressions and voice tones. With these technologies, people can enjoy communicating with Pepper in a natural way, just like they would with friends and family. In addition, Pepper can make jokes, dance and amuse people thanks to a wide variety of entertainment capabilities, some of which were developed in cooperation with Yoshimoto Robotics Laboratory, Inc., a Yoshimoto Kogyo Group company. Capabilities that help Pepper evolve by learning through daily interactions with people are also being planned for the commercial launch timing.

At present, Pepper gets its smarts by connecting to IBM Watson, IBM’s artificial intelligence platform, and Microsoft Azure, Microsoft’s cloud computing service.The idea is that Pepper would act as a concierge, helping with everything from locating products to bathroom directions. With a body and arms that can move in 17 directions and a head filled with sensors and doe-like eyes that are accented by colored lights, Pepper aims to deconstruct the cold-and-calculating robot stereotype.

Music, Love and Coexistence: David Broza

Posted by admin on January 6, 2017 in Spotlight |

Israeli superstar David Broza is considered one of the world’s most dynamic and vibrant performers. From his whirlwind finger picking to Flamenco percussion and rhythms, to a signature rock and roll sound, David Broza’s charismatic and energetic performances have delighted audiences throughout the world. More than singer/songwriter, David Broza is also known for his commitment and dedication to several humanitarian projects, predominantly, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Since 1977, when his hit song “Yihye Tov” first hit the airwaves, David Broza has been working to promote a message of peace. The song’s lyrics, roughly translated as “Things Will Be Better” struck at the heart of the issue – that people all over the world want peace. Now with a string of multi-platinum albums behind him, David Broza still strives to hone this message.

Broza was awarded a Spanish medal of honor by the King of Spain, Juan Carlos I, for his longtime contribution to Israel-Spain relations and his promotion of tolerance. He has also been named a Good Will Ambassador for U.N.I.C.E.F. A powerful musician, passionate peace advocate and music industry innovator, David Broza awes and inspires audiences with his sincere message and musical allure.

On January 7th, 2017 David is preforming in NYC at Town Hall. The show will begin with only David on stage and with each new song he will introduce a band member or group of band members, layering a bolero-style crescendo on the audience.

Every newly-introduced musician brings their instrument to a level of expertise and sensory delight. With guitars, drums, percussion, keyboard, piano, recorder and vocals, the audience will be mesmerized by the depth of fluency and youthful, hip energy on stage. The shared joy of the musicians is both captivating and addictive.

Virtual Reality

Posted by admin on January 5, 2017 in Spotlight |

Augmented & Virtual Reality (AR/VR) is among those 33 CES technology categories, with 261 exhibitors – the largest showcase of AR/VR technology ever. A related category is Gaming, with 388 exhibitors.

There’s good reason to think AR/VR is among the technologies that will most profoundly change day-to-day lived experience in the years ahead – and the addictive nature of ever-improving VR games is only one of several reasons for that.

AR/VR aren’t stand-alone technologies that can be separated from other domains. The reality is that AR/VR will increasingly overlap with a lengthening list of other CES categories, like Health and Biotech, Robotics, Video, Wearables, or Vehicle Technologies.

What is becoming clear is that in future, daily human experience will increasingly integrate AR and VR, just like it already integrates smartphone applications.

Innovative Holiday Gifts

Posted by admin on December 31, 2016 in Spotlight |

Chanukah is a time for friends and family to come together, celebrate and exchange gifts. This year, there are some incredible tools and gifts that will enhance anyone’s Chanukah gatherings.

This year, Chanukah coincided with Christmas. How do you compete with your neighbors? One answer, Chanuakh Laser Lights. Chanuakh Laser Lights provides an amazing laser show for your home. Just plug, stake into the ground & point and watch the green laser sparkle your home with Dreidels, Menorah and Moving Lights to create the ultimate home Chanukah Laser Show.

Ugly Chanukah apparel has become mainstream over the last several years. Shinesty a company that prides itself on creating the most outlandish collection of clothing the world has ever seen created Chanukah sweaters and sport jackets. Having worn their apparel at my own holiday party I can defiantly say you stand out in the crowd.

If you are looking to support Israel and show you are part of pro- Israel community One948 has you covered. After achieving their goal on Kickstarter, One948 launched an online store where you can purchase t-shirts, sweatshirts and tank tops. One948 aims to strengthen the unity of Israel supporters worldwide through apparel, while simultaneously putting 10% of our profits back into non-profit organizations that help Israel. http://www.one948.com/

If you love traveling, having the right gear is critical. After raising over 9 million dollars on Kickstarter Baubax created a swiss army knife of jackets. Baubax travel jacket comes with 15 features, including a neck pillow, eye mask, gloves, stylus pen, tech pockets and much more. Four styles of jackets, Sweatshirts, Windbreakers, Bombers and Blazers are available in both men and women, in a variety of sizes and color options. Additionally, their blazers and bomber jackets come with detachable hoods. I was able to fit a siddur, menorah, candles, chocolate gelt, passport and much more as I was lighting my menorah on the go. If you are participating in Taglit-Birthright Israel or mission to Israel having everything on you when you hike is very helpful.

Drones are transforming the way we tell stories and share experiences. Tradition tells us that the menorah should be positioned for all to see, to publicize the Chanukah miracle. This year, we used the Yuneec Breeze 4k to get the prospective of what people see from outside the house. With little more than some taps on your phone’s screen, you can put the Breeze in the air and have it perform a handful of automated camera moves to grab photos and video clips of you and your friends and family. Then you just download them to your phone, edit and share — all from
within the drone’s app.

You can also fly it around manually with onscreen controls if you want to get specific aerial shots, but the range is limited to a maximum height of 80 meters (262.5 feet) and maximum distance of 100 meters (328.1 feet). Flight times tap out at 12 minutes, so you won’t want to fly it too far away from you anyway.
The mobile app, available for iOS and Android, is split into two sections: Tasks and Gallery. Tap on Tasks and you’re given five options to choose from: Pilot, Selfie, Orbit, Journey and Follow Me. Pilot has the manual controls for flying around the way any other drone would with a regular controller. However, the Breeze is designed to have the camera pointed at you and not away from you like other camera drones, so the controls are reversed.

#blackfriday Gift Guide: OutDry™ Ex Diamond Heatzone Jacket

Posted by admin on November 25, 2016 in Spotlight |

We had the opportunity to check out OutDry™ Ex Diamond Heatzone Jacket by Columbia. OutDry™ Extreme is our first ever waterproof and breathable fabric technology constructed with a waterproof layer on the outside and soft, wicking fabric inside. Traditional rain gear uses interior waterproof membranes which don’t allow for air flow, and water-repellent coating that degrades over time. With OutDry™ Extreme, the rugged exterior is an incredibly water-tight membrane with millions of microscopic perforations that let water vapor escape through a wicking membrane directly fused to the shell.

Part of their Titanium line, this incredibly warm down jacket is fully seam-sealed and features rugged, external taping that makes it look every bit as waterproof as it is. It also features a super-soft chin guard and an adjustable storm hood with a removable, faux fur collar.
