Fit Radio Gets Funded to Power Your Workout

FIT Radio launched its Android and iPhone applications in July of 2011. Now, with a successful Fundable campaign, this Startup is reportedly all set to develop a set of improvements.

It takes a lot of time and energy to search for and download music for your workout. What you typically listen to throughout the day may not be what keeps you moving at the gym. Other streaming music apps give you one song at a time and have no control over BPMs (beats per minute) – Pandora, for example, will give you a fast, upbeat song but it will be followed by a slow, drawn out song that in no way matches the rhythm of the song you just previously heard. Spotify is just like iTunes, it lets you decide what you want to hear. However, flipping through songs can be very distracting when you’re trying to reach your goal of a seven-minute mile.

Did You Take Your Meds? Medisafe Reminds from the Cloud

In this video, the MediSafe Project is described as a system targeted to help you and your family take your medication on time and safely.

MediSafe Project’s co-founding brothers started the company when their diabetic father double-dosed on insulin and suffered an emergency. They understood if they were more involved in reviewing their father’s daily medication and insulin regimens, it could change his behavior for the better and help him get healthier. MediSafe Project reduces hospitalization and mortality, and increases medication compliance and health. It allows families, friends and caretakers to have peace of mind their loved ones are taking medications on time, even when they can’t be there.

You Seem Stressed – Beyond Verbal Software Detects Emotions

This week software developer Beyond Verbal launched a patented technology that can extract, decode, and measure a full spectrum of human emotions from your voice. Founded on 18 years of research by physicists and neuropsychologists, the software includes “emotional detection engines” that allow devices and applications to understand an individuals’ mood, attitude, and decision-making characteristics as they speak.

Nearly two decades of research tells us that it’s not what someone says, but how they say it, that tells the full story,” says Yuval Mor, CEO, Beyond Verbal, and 25-year technology veteran. “Beyond Verbal has the potential to impact numerous multi-billion dollar verticals and leverage a new market of emotionally-enhanced applications installed in any voice-enabled, voice-activated, or voice-controlled device. This opens up a new dimension of emotional understanding, called Emotions Analytics, giving humans and machines the ability to react in ways that were never before possible.”

The company closed a $2.8 million round of funding led by prominent angel investor Kenges Rakishev, and new VC, Genesis Angels.
