Pictory: AI-powered video editing for engaging videos @ CES 2022



Pictory video editingIf you’re a content creator, you know how important video can be to your success. But, unless you are specifically focused on creating video, it can be a real challenge to turn your talents in that direction. Filming a short video can be easy enough, but what about the editing? That’s where Pictory comes in, bringing AI directly into the video editing process.

What is Pictory?

Pictory is the world’s first AI-powered video editing platform that makes it easy for content creators and marketers to produce engaging videos automatically. With the platform, you can create video highlights, add captions to videos, and more in minutes. The company is based in Seattle and was founded in 2019 by a team of experienced marketing and technology executives. Pictory is backed by world-class investors and is changing the way we create video content.

How Pictory works

Pictory uses AI to automatically edit videos based on engagement data, so you can be sure that your videos are optimized for maximum impact. The system also makes it easy to repurpose existing long-form content such as webinars, podcasts, and blogs into social snippets.

You upload your raw video into the Pictory system and the platform does the initial tedious work for you. It is able to look for spacer words, such as “um” and “ah” and automatically remove them. You can even customize which words are considered spacers so the AI can adapt to your personal speaking patterns.

Pictory’s AI then analyzes your video and provides you with a range of options for how to proceed. You can choose to have the AI automatically edit your video based on engagement data, or you can select from a variety of editing options to create the perfect video for your needs.

Videos from text

Pictory can also create videos from text, so you don’t even need to have a video to start with. Just upload your blog post, podcast episode, or other written content and the system will turn it into a beautiful video that you can share on social media or your website.

Videos can be pictures and video clips laid over music, or Pictory can convert a script into speech. This is done through digital voice synth technology. That means that a virtual voice will be used to speak the lines in your script. As AI technology has improved, so have synthetic voices, meaning your video will still sound natural.

Who is Pictory for?

Pictory is perfect for content creators who want to add video to their repertoire but don’t have the time or expertise to edit videos themselves. It is also great for marketers who need to create videos at scale. With the platform, you can easily turn existing written content into videos, or create short video highlights from longer videos.

Summary

Pictory is changing the way we create video content and making it easier than ever for content creators to get started with video. To learn more about the platform and how it can help you create engaging videos automatically, visit the company’s website.

Bleujour MOVE Ultimate: The gaming PC for the traveler @ CES 2022



Bleujour MOVE UltimateBleujour unveiled a new PC that is sure to capture a rapid and steadily growing market: the traveling gamer. To be specific, the MOVE Ultimate gaming PC was specifically designed to be powerful, upgradable, and also portable! The MOVE Ultimate is built on Intel’s brand new Modular Computing Systems platform, the Intel NUC Elements Extreme, and Bleujour was sure to keep compatibility with long form-factor graphics cards in mind.

This PC is built to be mobile and part of that is possible due to being built on Intel’s brand new Modular Computing Systems platform, the Intel NUC Elements Extreme. This allows the MOVE Ultimate to have powerful components, giving the consumer choice of said components, and fitting them all into a small form-factor chassis. This design choice also allows you to have a powerful gaming and streaming PC that doesn’t take up too much space on your desk. We are becoming used to the idea of massive, powerful machines, stationary gaming machines but Bleujour is aiming to shake up those norms.

Design

The MOVE Ultimate’s chassis was designed with a carry handle built right onto it. This along with being built small enough and light enough to be an easy carry-on for flights makes this the perfect choice for travelers. Streamers that like to stay on the move, military personnel that relocates frequently but loves to game, and tournament organizers that find themselves in different locations while needing their gaming rigs handy, this PC is built for you. Bleujour even added the option to have the handle built on with either a right-handed or left-handed orientation, but the handle is also optional entirely.

You may also notice the beautiful etching along the sides of the chassis. Though these maze-like patterns are pleasing to look at, they are actually integrated into the PC’s cooling system. Lots of research went into designing a cooling system for these powerful, hexagonal-shaped PCs and the maze-like wholes turned out to be the perfect choice for maximum airflow.

What’s in the box?

M.2 NVMe SSD, DDR4 up to 64Gb, 9th and 11th Generation Intel Core processors, Nvidia GeForce RTX or AMD Radeon RX graphics card compatibility, (2) Thunderbolt 3 ports (40 Gbit/s speeds), Wi-Fi 6, and Dual Lan capability.

Price and availability?

Prices vary widely, for reasons that may be obvious. The components you choose will change the price of the PC but with a 9th Gen i5 processor, 16GB of DDR4 RAM, an Intel UHD 630 graphics card and a 1TB M.2 SSD, you’re going to spend about €1014,00 (about $1,125.64 USD) and they currently available for purchase from their website.

Is that all?

Bleujour also unveiled their line of work-grade PCs with some similar design philosophies. The Kubb Essentielle line is a small, cube-shaped PC meant to keep a small footprint on your desk, easy to move, simple to set up but still powerful enough to get the job done. These cubed workstations run on current generation i3, i5, and i7 processors, DDR 4 memory, Thunderbolt 3 ports, and more specs that you would come to expect in powerful laptops.

These are your perfect PCs for the office, especially for things like meetings and presentations involving powerful development or creative software. Despite being designed for work, this line comes in a very wide variety of colors and they are even available in different textures, like chrome and wood! The Kubb Essentielle workstations are also currently available for purchase from their website.

Summary

To learn more about Bleujour and its lineup of computers, check out the company’s website.

SECURAM Systems: Wi-Fi-enabled biometric home smart lock @ CES 2022



SECURAM Systems smart securityEvery aspect of our lives is getting smarter. From our cars to our lightbulbs, we have the ability to turn things on and off, lock and unlock devices, and open and close our doors. One company that is getting serious about connecting one of the most high-profile aspects of our homes, our door locks, is SECURAM Systems, which has introduced a new smart lock for the home.

Who is SECURAM Systems?

SECURAM Systems, Inc., a leading supplier of safe locks, announced that it has won the Mark of Excellence Award from the Consumer Technology Association for its EOS Smart Home Lock. The touch-to-open lock can be controlled with your smartphone and comes with a host of features to make your home more secure, including Wi-Fi connectivity and a built-in alarm.

The company’s products are designed to give you peace of mind and security in your home, whether you’re there or not. The company’s commitment to quality has earned it the trust of major banks and financial institutions around the world, which rely on SECURAM’s safe locks to protect their valuables.

What does the SECURAM Smart Home Lock offer?

The SECURAM EOS Smart Home Lock is a touch-to-open lock that can be controlled with your smartphone. The Wi-Fi-enabled lock comes with a built-in alarm and is designed to make your home more secure. It contains a number of features that we have come to expect from connected locks, such as a keypad and biometric sensor. But, it adds some features that are missing on other products.

First, it is a fully connected lock. That means that you can access the state of the lock remotely. This is important for a couple of reasons. First, you can verify that you have locked your door even after you’ve left the house. If you forgot, you can fix it remotely, as well. Plus, you can unlock it if someone is there and is having trouble getting in.

Most interestingly, the company has directly addressed the lack of a physical key. Normally, the key is a backup in the event the battery fails or the sensors stop functioning correctly. In the case of this lock, the company has added a hidden 9-volt battery contact on the outside. With that, you can power the lock for a short burst in order to get in. The biggest drawback is that no one carries a 9-volt battery, and most people don’t have one at all (outside of a smoke detector).

What are some other features of SECURAM’s home security suite?

In addition to the SECURAM Smart Home Lock, the company also offers a line of new products in its home security suite, including a garage door controller, a smart light switch, and a siren that detects intrusions. These products are designed to give you peace of mind and security in your home, whether you’re there or not.

The SECURAM Garage Door Controller lets you control your garage door from your smartphone. The controller is Wi-Fi-enabled and comes with an app that allows you to open and close your garage door from anywhere in the world. You can also set up alerts so that you’re notified when someone opens or closes your garage door.

The SECURAM Smart Light Switch gives you the ability to turn on and off your lights remotely. The switch is Wi-Fi-enabled and can be controlled with your smartphone. You can also set up schedules so that your lights turn on and off at certain times of the day.

The SECURAM Siren is a battery-operated device that detects intrusions and sounds an alarm. The siren is designed to alert you to potential danger, whether you’re home or away. The siren can be placed anywhere in your home, and it comes with an app that allows you to control it remotely.

Summary

SECURAM Systems is dedicated to making our homes smarter and more secure. With its new line of home security products, they are helping us do just that. To learn more about SECURAM Systems’ EOS Smart Home Lock or any of its other products, visit the company’s website or Amazon store.

MetaVRse: Bringing the future of mixed reality to you @ CES 2022



MetaVRseThanks to Meta (formerly Facebook), the term metaverse became the hot new buzzword. But, what is the metaverse and how does it work? For most, it is believed to require special hardware to create an immersive experience. However, that is not always the case. In fact, MetaVRse has a concept that will allow you to join in right from your tablet or computer.

What is MetaVRse?

MetaVRse is the future of mixed reality. It’s a code-optional platform that makes it easy to create and share interactive 3D experiences instantly on the web. With the platform, anyone can be a creator. You don’t need any coding experience – just make your experience in MetaVRse Studio, and it will deploy across multiple operating systems, browsers, and devices. The company is bringing the future of XR to you.

MetaVRse is based on web technology, so it runs in your browser without any special hardware required. You can access the platform from anywhere in the world with an internet connection. MetaVRse uses WebXR – a standard for how browsers should work with virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) devices. MetaVRse is also built on the Metaverse SDK, which makes it easy to create & share interactive experiences without any coding experience.

MetaVRse works with any VR, AR, or MR device. It is currently available on the web and mobile devices (iOS and Android) but will be coming to other platforms soon.

What is the Metaverse?

The metaverse is a virtual world that you can explore, interact with, and create. It’s a shared space where people can come together to socialize, play games, and work on projects. Think of it as a cross between the internet and reality – a place where you can be anyone you want to be and do anything you want to do.

While many speak of it as a single experience, there are multiple approaches to the concept. Each one has its own ecosystem, as well as system requirements. Meta’s metaverse runs natively on the company’s Oculus hardware. Microsoft’s metaverse implementation lives mostly within Teams for now but will expand into Xbox and more. MetaVRse brings the concept outside of a locked ecosystem and into the wild, through browser-based interaction.

What Can I Do in MetaVRse?

In MetaVRse, you can socialize with friends, play games, work on projects, and explore the Metaverse. You can also create your own experiences to share with others. It is a great way to connect with people from all over the world and explore new things together.

MetaVRse is also a great place to shop. You can find items that are not available in the real world, or you can buy items from the Metaverse to use in the real world. The ecosystem has a wide variety of shops and products to choose from.

Summary

MetaVRse is changing the way we interact with the world. With its easy-to-use platform and code-optional design, anyone can be a creator. To learn more about the platform and how you can get involved, head to the company’s website.

FluentPet Connect: The Next Generation of Pet Text Messages @ CES 2022



FluentPet Connect pet communicationIf you have a pet, you know that it can be difficult to understand what they want. Their vocal capabilities are limited and tend to just be whines and similar-sounding noises. But, as all pet owners know, these animals are still very smart. They understand what we are saying and are aware of different wants and needs. So, why can’t we find a reliable way of communicating with our pets? FluentPet has a solution to this problem using small buttons and recorded voices.

What is FluentPet?

It’s been a long journey, but we’re finally here. FluentPet Connect is the next generation of pet communications, and it represents a huge leap forward in our quest to connect with animals in a deeper way. With FluentPet Connect, you can capture every push of a button and send high-fidelity audio directly to your pet’s Base HexTile speaker. This allows you to customize your interactions with them however you like!

The compact design also means you can fit more buttons into a smaller space, and the sturdy construction discourages biting, as opposed to the foam used to construct the previous version. There are six installable sound buttons to choose from and it is your choice of what you would like each button to do. The possibilities do not end there.

How does this work?

The FluentPet Connect app uses a technology called Augmented Audio to send your voice commands directly to the Base HexTile. This allows you to keep your pet’s attention focused on you while you’re interacting with them, and it also means that you can use any words or sounds you like! There are six buttons provided per tile, and the newer design adds threading to the buttons to decrease the chance of them being removed by your pet so easily.

Wi-Fi capability has been added as well, and there are expansion devices that can be purchased in bundles. The expansion tiles would connect to the Base HexTile via Bluetooth, to avoid having endless numbers of devices connected to your home Wi-Fi connection. This is a simple and smart solution to be able to add more tiles, which would add any number of customizable buttons at your pet’s disposal.

Summary

The original FluentPet is available now with starter kits priced at $29.95. The FluentPet Connect and Expansion HexTiles are aiming for a release date between Spring and Summer of this year. The Base HexTile is available for purchase on their website for $79.95 and the Expansion Tiles will retail for $49.95. There is also a pack of 3 Expansion HexTiles available for $119.95.

The FluentPet Connect app is a free download on the App Store and Google Play, and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Android devices. As of right now, pre-orders are available through their website. To learn more about the original FluentPet, the FluentPet Connect, or to pre-order one for yourself, head over to the company’s website.

Fluent.ai: The future of natural speech recognition @ CES 2022



Fluent.ai voice recognitionIf you have a smart speaker, or you use the assistant on your phone, you know just how hard it can be to get it to understand what you want. Either it misunderstands what you have said or you didn’t use the very robotic language it was expecting. For a person, the difference between “turn on Neon” and “power on Neon” are exactly the same, but Alexa may only understand one of them. But, with technology from Fluent.ai, that could be a thing of the past.

What is Fluent.ai?

Fluent.ai is at the forefront of natural speech recognition technology. That’s why Flunt.ai’s speech recognition technology is so important. With Flunt.ai, you can simply speak into your phone to send a text or make a call. Fluent’s patented speech-to-intent technology runs fully offline in a small footprint, low power devices and can support any language or accent. This makes Fluent a perfect solution for consumer device OEMs looking to provide an intuitive and private-by-design voice user interface for any device or application!

Their offline, noise-robust speech recognition can support any language and accent. Speech is transcribed to text in the cloud, which is then analyzed by natural language processing to determine intent. This technology is important because it provides a way for people to interact with their devices without having to type or touch them. This can be extremely useful in many situations, such as when you’re driving or when your hands are full.

If you’re interested in using Flunt.ai’s technology, you can sign up for their free Developer Edition. This will give you access to their SDK and API so that you can start building your own voice-enabled applications. You can also check out their website for more information on their products and services.

Fluent.ai works offline?

Yes! This is a great feature because it means that you don’t have to be connected to the internet in order to use it. This can be very useful in situations where you might not have an internet connection, such as when you’re on a plane or in a rural area. It also gives the ability to use the technology in secure areas where connected devices are not allowed.

Take, for example, a manufacturing cleanroom. Connected devices are not allowed in these areas because they can introduce vectors of attack and IP theft into the environment. However, with Flunt.ai’s technology, you can still use voice commands to control machinery and other equipment in the cleanroom. This is a great way to increase efficiency and safety in these environments.

What languages does it support?

Fluent.ai supports any language or accent, making it a great choice for global companies. This is because their technology can be used by anyone, regardless of their language or accent. This makes Fluent a perfect choice for OEMs looking to provide an intuitive and private-by-design voice user interface for any device or application!

Summary

If you’re interested in learning more about Flunt.ai, be sure to check out their website! You can also sign up for their free Developer Edition to get access to their SDK and API. This will allow you to start building your own voice-enabled applications!

They will also have the opportunity to build and launch their own model rockets. Most interestingly, students have the opportunity to design an experiment that could be built and sent to the International Space Station!

This sounds like an incredible experience for any student interested in STEM, but Higher Orbits doesn’t stop there. They also offer programs for educators, to help them bring space into their classrooms. These programs are designed to engage students of all ages in learning, whether they want to be astronauts when they grow up or not!
