CES 2014 - Withings Revamps Smart Blood Pressure Monitor with Wireless Capabilities

Posted by Andrew Stevens on January 10th, 2014

Withings has unveiled a revamped version of its Smart Blood Pressure Monitor by announcing a new wireless version of the device. Users only need to wrap the new Bluetooth enabled device around their arm and control the rest through the iPhone app where it'll also save and display the results of each test. The device will be available "soon" for $129.95.

"Our device is a medical device, but we’ve made it cool and fashionable! Patients don’t feel the need to hide it away and, yet, they get to share highly accurate results with their physician. Designing attractive and simple-to-use devices is the only way the connected health revolution can become a reality.” said Cédric Hutchings, co-founder of Withings, in a press release.

Galileo is a Tilting, 360 Degree, Robotic iPhone Mount

Posted by Kevin Stout on April 2nd, 2012

Anyone as remotely geeky as I am has been immediately drawn to this post because of the picture of this obviously awesome iPhone mount. This mount, the Galileo, functions in even cooler ways than it looks. The Galileo is an iOS-controlled, robotic, tilting, 360-turning mount for the iPhone.

This crazy thing is perfect for photographers, cinematographers, and just any gadget crazy techie (me) who wants to play with this thing. It can turn at 200 degrees per second and is controlled by another iOS device (I’m already imagining the possibilities of using this thing with my iPad). Its function is basically up to the user’s imagination. There’s an image on the Galileo’s Kickstarter page showing the mount on a skateboard about to go under a car (and an iPad to watch what it sees). There will even be an SDK for app developers!

The Kickstarter page has already raised over $250,000 (the goal was $100,000) and has 21 more days to go. The most popular pledge is $85 (the lowest to receive the product when it’s released). The Galileo is set to retail at $129.95 when it’s released (estimated June 2012) so pledging for $85 (along with the other 1400 backers) is a steal. Check out the Kickstarter page here and the video below for a demonstration.
