Vuzix: SMART Glasses Explained 12.1.2012 TechCrunch
vuzix-smart-glasses-ces-2012The story about Vuzix's new AR/holographic enabled concept glasses broke last week, but I had a chance to catch up with Clark Dever from Vuzix (with my rouge TechCrunch ghetto cam) for a brief video explanation and demo of the technology. The short of it is that it involves some highfalutin' technolgy to get the displays to accurately display into the lens material. Their displays were quite clear and the demo devices show that accurately. Additionally, the displays will ultimately be able to work with a series of wearable gyroscopes for truly "hands on" interface interaction.

Who Will Survive After CES? 11.1.2012 Inc
The Consumer Electronics Show is great for getting buzz, but it's no guarantee for success for start-ups. Here's what it takes to survive after Las Vegas. LAS VEGAS—Tech companies come in droves to the Consumer Electronics Show. They announce, they demo, they dazzle the crowds. And then every year, a number of them pack up and head home only for their products to fall into obscurity or fail outright. What might have been hailed as "innovative" in Las Vegas risks loses any luster it briefly had. More than 50 percent of new technology products that enter the market fail, according to the Association of International Product Marketing and Management. Remember HP's Touchpad? Microsoft's Zune? HP's foray into the TV business? The moral of the story is: Even the big guys stumble. I don't know what the figure would be for products that debut at CES, but it's safe to say that the world probably won't know or care about of fair number of the 2,700 exhibitors after the show ends Friday. ...

How a Crowdfunded Gadget Got to CES 11.1.2012 Inc
A year ago, it was just a fledgling Kickstarter project. Now Kogeto has VC funding and a spot on Apple Store shelves. LAS VEGAS—As far as Kickstarter success stories go, Kogeto, a start-up exhibiting at this year's Consumer Electronics show, has a pretty outstanding one. Back in May, this New York-based start-up was just another project in need of funding. The company makes the Dot camera lens , which snaps onto an iPhone and lets its user shoot 360-degree video. By July, Kogeto had raised $120,000 on Kickstarter and within 48 hours Apple was calling to set up a meeting. Fast forward to January: Kogeto has $1 million in venture funding and will roll out its devices in Apple retail stores by the end of this month, says CEO and founder Jeff Glasse. Glasse, who also happens to be a comedian, says he stumbled upon the world of panoramic video a couple of years ago when he was working on an education research project for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. "I felt like Steve Jobs at ...
Land More E-mail in Your Targets' Inboxes 11.1.2012 Inc
With the acquisition of OtherInbox, e-mail deliverability company Return Path hopes to help businesses do just that. E-mail management company Return Path, a 2006 and 2007 Inc. 500 honoree, has bought start-up OtherInbox, which also focuses on e-mail delivery. OtherInbox's software helps users automatically organize their e-mails. The company will be a wholly-owned subsidiary and remain in Austin, where New York City-based Return Path plans to expand operations. The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Return Path, founded in 1999, helps commercial e-mail senders land more e-mail in its targets' inboxes. Its customers include Groupon and Twitter. The privately-held company has 300 employees, and its investors include Union Square Partners and Mobius Venture Capital. "The decision to acquire OtherInbox was based on its technology and its broad customer base, but separately we've been talking about where we might expand operations, and Austin was on that list," spokeswoman Tami ...

Open a Hot Restaurant with $12,000 11.1.2012 Inc
In New York City? Really? Former advertising exec Nicole Ponseca explains how she opened Maharlika, and got great buzz and press from Day One. Maharlika in New York City's East Village has been a word-of-mouth hit since opening in January 2011. Glowingly reviewed in The New York Times, the restaurant, which serves Filipino cuisine, was described as an "empire in the making," and recently launched two pop-up restaurants in Williamsburg. Nicole Ponseca, 35, a former advertising executive, co-owns Maharlika with fellow Filipinos, Noel Cruz and Enzo Lim. She tells us how the restaurant became a success, despite serving a cuisine unfamiliar to many diners and having very little start-up money. How did you go from ad exec to restaurant entrepreneur? The idea really started more than 10 years ago. I was working at Saatchi & Saatchi and my clients wanted to try Filipino food, but there weren’t any places I thought I could take them. At the time Filipino food was still in the shadows, ...

Here are six reasons to consider cutting your work week down a day while boosting company morale exponentially. After living within the confines of a four-day work week during the past four months at Slingshot SEO , my first reaction to questions about this unbelievable perk is “Why not?” Small business owners, CEO’s and executives from all over the country ask me on a weekly basis if it really works.
