DemoFall 2007: Most memorable of future tech

Culture
^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Hi this is Rafe Needleman from Webware.com. >> And I'm Erica Ogg from CNETNews.com. >> We are at DemoFall in San Diego; a conference where 70 new products and startups are being introduced. We've looked at nearly all of these companies and have come up with our best awards from the most interesting products and companies. Erica let's start with you on that. >> Okay. So the first stop is FeedHub and this gets the award for Solving a Problem that we Actually Have. Basically it takes all the information you get via RSS, and it whittles it down to the stuff that you actually read. It looks at the sources that you read; you can drop sources, you can tweak it as you go, so basically it's customized information that you actually want. >> Great. I'm gonna give the Sticking it to the Man award to Dimdim which makes a conference and screen touring product much like WebEx or Go to Meeting; but it's open source, it's free, it's very flexible, and for anyone who's paying whatever it is per month to a paid conferencing system, seriously check out Dimdim and other products like it. >> Okay so the next stop is the product most likely soon to show up on the home shopping network. >> Oh no. >> Yes. Vyro makes a personal input pod that's a biosensor that is connected by a Bluetooth to your cell phone, and basically it's casual gaming where the object is to relax. So there are two games that you get ahead by becoming more calm. >> Sounds kind of intuitive. >> It really does. >> Now how much do you expect to pay for this on an increscent [assumed spelling]? >> I would say two easy payments of $9.99. >> Okay I'll look for that. That sounds like a good gift. >> Okay my next award is to the company most likely to make money and that's Phreesia. Now this is a very interesting product. It replaces the clipboard in a doctor's waiting room with a touch sensitive tablet. When I first saw this I felt that there was no way this product could succeed because doctors would have to pay for it and then I found out it's free to doctors. It solves a real problem of collecting electronically information that they need to have, doctors don't have to pay for it and the company will make money because they serve advertisements after the interviewing process is done. Pharmaceuticals and insurance companies would love to reach the captive audience in the waiting room and this product does a very good job of that. >> Next up is a product that gets the creepiest award from us. It's called the Pudding and it's from Pudding Media and it's a service that allows you to make free phone calls on the web as long as you let them listen in on what you're talking about. So it analyzes the key words in your conversations and then serves up ads for you to see that are relevant to what you've been cursed about. >> Eeh. >> Not only is it creepy it does not work for me. I was talking about coming down to San Diego, eating some Mexican food, making a trip to the post office. I got ads for ice rinks and hockey. >> Perfect. So creepy and effective. A great combination. Finally we have the coolest product here that's not ecology basis, which is Motion VSP's new product Fix My Movie. This product takes blocky, pixilated cell phone videos and magically, like you see on television, makes them into higher, quality, sharp, less jumpy videos. It can also take a video of a still scene, and from that video over time make a very high quality still frame still image. This company has been working on this problem for a very long time; it's military-derived technology and I'm really glad to see it finally reach the consumer. So those are our top products from the Demo Conference and some not so top products. I'm Rafe Needleman from Webware. >> And I'm Erica Ogg. >> And we'll see you at the next Demo Conference. ^M00:03:37 [ Music ] ^M00:03:43
