3 Inexpensive Tools to Monitor Students, Encourage Productivity at Home

Previously Published to News Break Already challenged to remain productive, remote workers now face an added responsibility. While most schools have re-opened, parents are still hesitant to send children back. Some schools have already re-closed. Through online learning and enrichment programs, we collaborate with teachers to make the most of each experience. And still, we need to stay active to keep our children on daily target. Engagement isn’t generally the issue but focus almost always is. To stay on target, even the brightest children constantly need nudged. With frequent reminders, even the most difficult child can be pushed to excel. And if you have a child like mine (this girl has a 142 IQ at age 9) — you need to stay on them, to keep them off YouTube and to just get their work done. In fact, while at home, how many times a day are they told to get back to their seats — to stop visiting other sites and to finish mandatory schoolwork? How many times have you caught them playing a game — or worse yet — using the fact that their teacher has them play “educational” games — as a means to get out of […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TMCNET’S WEARABLE TECH NEWS While virtual reality has been available to consumers for more than 20 years, it doesn’t seem like it caught on too well until recently. Companies like Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR have made virtual reality more mainstream, and now everyone is trying to get some action. YouVisit, a company with the mission of showing you the world, has developed one of the world’s largest collections of interactive virtual reality content. In fact, they have made it possible for user-generated virtual reality experiences, giving individuals, educational institutions and business all over the world the opportunity to create their own virtual reality content. Providing what some are quoting to be the “industry’s highest resolution VR experience,” YouVisit has formulated an algorithm said to be viewed at almost five times the resolution of other standard virtual reality content. The visuals are said to be so realistic, that users almost forget that they never left their living room. YouVisit’s algorithm cuts down download times and allows each experience to be powered at a higher resolution but at a much lower bandwidth. This takes place by allowing the user experience to transform how the algorithm […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TALENT ZOO’S DIGITAL PIVOT As the healthcare market is exploding with new technologies centered around wearable technologies, ALEX enters the scene with one of the most genius wearables to date. In fact, this is probably one of the most beneficial wearables to date. Over the years, there has been a ton of research put into the human spine and its effect on not just our physical health, but also our mental health. Our ancestors even depicted the spine as a portal into the universe. The caduceus is a representation of how the spine is representative of overall health. Bad posture can contribute to pain, unnecessary health complications, and even obesity. It can cloud our judgment because we are unable to think clearly. It can lead to complications later in life and leave us unable to remain active in our elderly years. It can increase levels of cortisol in our bodies and decrease testosterone in men. This undeniably leads to stress and depression. ALEX seeks to change all of that. A wearable device that fits comfortably around the back of our neck and hangs firmly around our ears, ALEX becomes our posture coach and tracker, synchronizing with our […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TALENT ZOO’S DIGITAL PIVOT In 2016, we will see a sharp influx in the production, delivery, and adoption of IoT technologies and wearables. Here, at Digital Pivot, we have disclosed quite a launches set for later this year. But just how rapidly are these technologies becoming part of our everyday lives? The NPD Group broke down dollar and unit sales for 2015, analyzing details related to the wearables industry, and came up with some pretty cool insights. In fact, it seems that we are starting to spend double that of the previous year just to have the top new wearables on the market. As wearables evolve, they are adopting the features we are disappointed our current version is missing. For this, we are okay with buying the product again — just because we need that upgrade. Spoiled, aren’t we? Not so much. It actually goes deeper than this. As innovation continues to build upon itself, we, as advanced users, seek sophistication in products that we use every day. While we aren’t necessarily looking for complexity, we do like to have a product at our fingertips that brings us little need for outside device utilization. We master products that we […]

Hey, Lazy! There’s a New App With Your Name on It!

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TALENT ZOO’S DIGITAL PIVOT What a shame! No, really, what a shame! Robots and Pencils just released a new app this morning for the iPhone and Apple Watch that gives us a whole new perspective to fitness, weight loss, and our overall health, period. And, it’s no cakewalk, either. Or, wait… maybe it is CAKEWALK. With a growing market for health and mobile fitness, it was bound to happen. A mobile app with personality stepped onto the scene. CAKEWALK is, according to the creator, Ben Myers, meant for “anyone who needs added incentive to stay fit.” They can “download their own personal drill instructor to their phone — a sarcastic cake with legs character who is hard to please and eager to shame.” The app was built on the ideal that some people need tough love in their workout regimen and daily routine. Because some people respond better to harsh criticism, CAKEWALK throws out all traditional models of positive reinforcement out the window, bringing “more sass than sugar” to get people into gear. Public shame brings out the inner tiger in some, pushing them out of their complacent behaviors and into a healthier lifestyle. CAKEWALK isn’t just […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TALENT ZOO’S DIGITAL PIVOT “I understand that maybe you can’t dedicate an hour a day to meditation. But if you can’t even take 20 minutes for yourself to meditate, you’re just letting your ego get in the way.” –Sabir Bey, Host of The Sabir Bey Show. Most people don’t understand the importance of meditation, especially its importance for clarity, rest, and keeping the mind agile. But meditation is extremely important, especially at a time when we overload our minds with digital insight and allow that same digital platform to continue “thinking” on our behalf. For this, two leaders in meditation technology have teamed up to launch “a national challenge to ease people into mindful living.” The companies also partnered with the Goldie Hawn Foundation to promote “mindful thinking” to children and educators. A headband created by Muse sets out to motivate people into adopting a better understanding of their minds during meditation. At the onset of 2016, millions of people have publicly set resolutions to lead healthier lifestyles, and a sound mind is one of the most important elements of the “get healthy” process. This nationwide initiative is leading a “1% Challenge that encourages people to dedicate at least […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED TO TALENT ZOO’S DIGITAL PIVOT Taking pet care to a whole new level, PetPace has released a new mobile app aimed at bringing the cloud to pet care monitoring. A healthcare tool for our furbabies, veterinarians are able to analyze pet health data on-the-go and make sure that critically ill animals are still being cared for around the clock. Animal care professionals have the power to access an app that stores pet health charts and provides them with ongoing monitoring of temperature and vital signs, allowing real-time communications that include respiration, pulse, activity, positions, pain, calories, and more. Wearable technologies allow synchronization via pet collars, servicing both dogs and cats as little as eight pounds in size. Furparents can monitor their babies from home or work, providing them just a little additional support and keeping clinics free of unnecessary calls to check up on a pet repeatedly. In fact, there is a much more thorough flow of communication in this manner, which allows clinics to be more productive. Available on both Android and iOS, this app takes pride in expanding trends in mobile healthcare and wearables to the pet care industry, saving lives as a result. Real-time alerts will […]
