Speaker: So, we're at the Startup Conference in Mountain View. Inside here, there is a... Discussions going on. Entrepreneurs are listening to talks about how to start their business, how to get funding, how to get customers. Outside here, there's a little street fair of Startup Companies, showing their wares, looking for investors, looking to hire people. Let's go check out, see what they're up to. What brings you this event and what are you up to? Speaker: So, my... What my company does is we automate all of the legal documents for startups. So, this is my target market. Startup Angel investors, incubators and a law firm to this service, those kinds of clients and what I was saying is it's uncanny that really that doesn't exist out there, in the... In the market. Speaker: Well, no. There's Legal Zoom. Speaker: Yeah, there... There is Legal Zoom. I would say what we are is we are like Legal Zoom, but we used software to produce all the documents and we're also focused initially on technology companies. So, we addressed the issues that they... That they don't. Speaker: So, (Ishmia?). What brings you to attend this conference? Speaker: I'm here to present the product that we built, called (Resack?). It consist of NFC enabled bracelet with a small bracelet that can you upload your wallet information to the Cloud, and you also download an app with it, and that way, you can just go around and use the bracelet as your wallet. The way it works is basically the app, you put it... Let say, the phone on top of the bracelet. It vibrates. It gets the data from the cloud, for instance here in this case, would retrieve my identity information. Here, this is my image profile. But you could do more with that. Basically, this would be a phone or cell system as well, we're out of club or beach club where you're having fun on those venues. You don't wanna, wanna pull out your phone. You just can wave your wrist band and make those sent out. Speaker: So, Touch Brow is a keyboard on Android devices. So, it helps you type 30% faster than a soft keyboard. We also provide a better like typing experience, so that it can correct your mistakes when you type. We develop a technology called Predictive Lighting, so you don't have to finish the whole work. Speaker: Look at this. We got cupcakes... The billing cupcakes, we have to pay for them online. We'll be back. I'll see what else we got here. This is awesome. This is what every conference need as a giveaway. Check it out. Hand sanitizer. It's a dirty business. This one's going home to the 5 year old. Why did you come to the street fair? Whether you'll think to get out of it? Speaker: A lot of inspiration. I'm a new business, and I'm a startup, as what everybody else, and I just wanna see what's going on out there. What... What are the hot companies. What are the innovators. What are disrupting the market, and how can I be a part of that. Speaker: Are we in a bubble? Speaker: I don't think we're in a bubble. I... We're in a different universe but I don't think we're in a bubble. I... I think this is part of the new technology. We learned lessons from the last bubble. These people have to be doing things. They have to make a different and they have to be usable. Speaker: So there you have it. From the Startup Conference in Mountain View, I'm Rafe Needleman from CNET News.
