On November 2, Ubergizmo held the Digital Fall event in San Francisco. Digital Fall is one of the Digital Seasons series of events from Ubergizmo, aimed at entrepreneurs and developers. This one was titled “The Future of VR” and included panelists Han Jin (Lucidcam), Ashley J. Granata (triggar), Hubert Nguyen (Ubergizmo) and moderator Leanne Luce (Fashion Robot). We had a full house – without a doubt, VR is a hot topic!
Prior to the panel, attendees were able to experience the Lucidcam hardware and app in the demo area. If you don’t know Lucidcam, it is a 180-degrees 4K 3D-stereoscopic camera that was designed to make VR video-capture more accessible and more intuitive. There is little doubt that most of the VR content in the short-term will be video-based, that is why many companies are competing on that front.
During the panel discussion, our guests discussed a wide variety of VR-related topics. The diversity of opinions made for a great chat. Han Jin builds a video-based product for consumers, Ashley Granata has worked with VR for large enterprises and the military, and Hubert Nguyen has a 3D games graphics engineer background.
Attendees had many questions after the panel session, and one-on-one discussions with the panelists went on until we closed the event. That was a great time to ask specific questions that you often don’t have the opportunity to cover during typical developer or networking events.
We would like to thank all the attendees for coming to Digital Fall 2017, making it a success. We also send thanks to our panelist who covered a broad set of topics and questions. Finally, thanks to Target Open House for hosting Digital Fall 2017, ReadWrite for helping us promote the event and Choyou for co-producing the event.
We are looking forward to seeing you at the upcoming Digital Winter and Digital Spring events! We will cover hot topics such as IoT, and VR/AR will surely make a comeback because there is much more to talk about.

It is undeniable that wearable technology will change the way we quantify ourselves. Already, trackers of all kinds can gather more data about us than ever before, and this is going to increase. However, data-gathering is not a goal in itself and making sense of the data to provide meaningful and actionable information to the user should always be the end-game. That’s why Ubergizmo and Gero are joining forces to give away health trackers.
It’s very hard, but that’s exactly the goal that GERO LAB has set for itself. They use mathematical models to identify risks of age-related diseases by analyzing data gathered by those devices. They have tracked data from 3000 Fitbit users thus far, and with your participation, they plan to refine and improve their work. You can enter to win one of three cool wearable devices.
What can you win?
GERO will announce 10 winners and each will be able to win one of those three items:
- A Fitbit Force (Activity tracker) (Value: $129.95)
- A Fitbit Aria (Wireless scale) (Value: $129.95)
- A Jawbone UP 24 (Activity tracker) (Value: $149.99) (more…)

Last week, we gave 10 Best of CES awards, and the physical trophies have already been delivered, but as a last look back on CES 2014, here’s the list for the record, and why we like those products or technologies. Here they are, in no particular order and see you next year for another crazy week in Las Vegas. Drop a comment to let us know what your favorite CES product was!
1/ Intel Edison
Intel wants to enter the wearable tech market and their Edison SD-Card sized computer may just get them there much faster. We have seen some pretty small computers in the past, some as small as a shirt button, but Intel’s is basically a PC shrunk into the size of a memory card. The choice for using the SD card format is astute because device makers can already have access to a wealth of options to build their hardware. While the card uses the SD Card physical format, it is not limited at all by the SD protocol, so developers are free to build any system they want. We can’t wait to see the first prototypes. (more…)
