Tech Talk-New Tech 2016

Technology Matters

    This 14-year-old invented a first-aid supply vending machine.  
    He’s raised 100-thousand-dollars in outside investment and even rejected a 30-million-dollar offer to buy his idea.
    He’s 14.  When I was 14 I was playing with a stick.
    Tyler Rosenthal got the idea after noticing parents weren’t equipped to aid their children when injured during little league.
    He started selling first aid kits at sporting events, but it wasn’t economical.  So the vending machine idea.  
    A national amusement park group is interested.
    Way to go Tyler.
    (Natural sound: robot speaking Chinese.)
    From a bright child to a robot monk sharing his Buddhist teachings.
    Xian’er (Shee-Ahn R) responds to voice commands and answers simple questions about Buddhism.
    The goal is to fill a spiritual gap for people in a fast-changing smartphone society.
    iPhone users — you’ve been there.  You need to text an address to a friend.  You don’t know the address off hand.
    So you leave the conversation to Google the address — copy it — open your convo — and send the link.
    Phew!
    Well — Google has a solution.  It’s the “Gboard.”  You search Google from the keyboard.  Just tap the G.  Results show on the screen, making it easy to send in a message.  You don’t have to close your conversation.
    Gboard works for texting — email — and in other apps.
    There are intuitive features like glide typing, making typing easier.  And emoji search so you can find that perfect picture faster.
    Search and send YouTube videos — flight information — even gifs.
    It’s in the app store.
