-- And everybody good afternoon hammered Obama and so -- -- where that's thanks for joining us here.
On a show called solution in America this is a program.
That takes a look at the problems that we face as Americans -- the problems of big some of the problems are small.
And today we're gonna focus on some people were really make -- difference using technology.
To help people deal with some of our everyday problems -- -- -- join in the conversation you can chat with us live in the box it's right below me there -- -- chat -- were also.
On Twitter you can follow me my handle is act -- fullback on.
Our show is -- fox news live you can also post your comments on our FaceBook page.
Which is FaceBook dot com slash.
Fox News alive we want to know what questions you have for our guests that will try to work as many of them in as we can over the next thirty minutes or so today's focus.
Is high tech help as I mentioned how the latest technology out there.
Can help you with your everyday problems so let's get to problem number one today.
I go through to any batteries.
No I do.
Rice university's -- battery and joining us now on Skype from Santa Clara California.
Is -- I'm saying there's a graduate student at Rice University it's good to have you thanks very much for joining us.
Hey thanks heading -- so explain to me what this means changeable battery what is that.
Being given that -- is busy VNU concept -- -- -- also back trees.
Still like we did is like -- like it all -- go back to complaining.
In the -- beings and shoots you can imagine that as you up that I have been going our -- like scared by the exact -- you have sized base color and then you have they're being and then you have a radical -- being -- -- like -- like -- -- complaining in the being fonts are in a Maxi you have basic each.
Doing it so it's and a separate -- and Pat Tillman just kind of anecdotes.
So we gonna like it all these -- complaints in the former beast and BF IDs been in I see greens still.
-- Knew I had little kids at home.
And they have these -- weighs in every one of their toys requires batteries.
And it seems like I am constantly changing.
How would this work in a practical sense we just saw little demonstration of the painting but let's say you have a child's toy that takes batteries how -- paid double battery.
Work for that to it.
So they entered this market is concept don't need to buy back trees still a great time this is staged you'll get an army -- I -- -- still.
Right on it just REIT out of notification that -- back yet cracking on increased energy density is smaller one you -- -- then we can and then I think also denying it to be too.
Back beyond the -- are Smart objects.
Tell me about black -- -- tell me about some of the research today it would get -- to from where you are.
22 you know where you'd be able to actually use this for for smaller objects.
So I cannot consent is still look and -- that has a -- elements from the -- speech still.
Insular increasing day as you can -- EPS trying to pull stacked up Manny says aren't now -- -- and it.
I do my best and I -- from.
It what's your hope with this I mean this is -- -- batteries.
I've been around for a long time there you know there there's there's certainly some when when you're done and you want to dispose of the battery.
You have to dispose of them properly because they can sometimes not be so good for the environment.
This -- double battery concept is that perhaps more.
Eco friendly than than the traditional batteries that were all used to.
I cannot visit stand it's not so that's not react.
Back on what you -- and -- -- and Colin -- Agnes and the key is art and acting like it's to get this is -- it -- so that -- -- -- -- splits and bounce slow.
He's threatening not actually so yes -- -- trying to work on days.
-- just mentioned for our viewers that we.
Have a little bit of an eruption there with that with the Skype and the audio as we as we talked to -- I'm saying who's a graduate student at Rice University.
Who's come up with this paid double battery that can be painted onto pretty much any surface -- I read that -- that you consider this to be a paradigm -- Why do you say that.
Necessarily think so because I don't think the beat -- back TV campus next week to -- -- He bounced off the shape -- size of the country each and aren't you sense this weekend -- agonies.
That puts you past kinda sad thing is I didn't inching its own dog Jake you and me I'm like -- and help who have actually still.
-- this accident you.
-- -- -- Anyone in the you can.
They CD sunlight on the house though it all states to bash.
On popular I'll go analysts -- so it's not fun.
The liberal and it if not what you can't just chip then I'm excited of size but actually it's suddenly you particularly angry when there are -- aren't that packet says -- and also.
I had this -- of the fact he's in the days and it is an act.
In electronic device it's -- limited.
On its own -- up the backseat.
There's not -- you guys -- We'll just be a woman inside the device so we're going to -- leading -- easy -- you need them.
Eight arts fighting and action packed.
He gives it -- it is up.
-- -- Quick question from our chat room -- -- Griffin 57 says that he or she I'm not sure not sure -- get it your battery runs out and you pain on another coat.
Who the -- works.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The biggest sport and then have people -- an -- hands.
Well we wish you the best in your -- surge.
Neal and saying a graduate student at rice university and you can find.
Them on Twitter at Rice University.
Thanks very much for joining us today keep us posted -- your research.
-- -- -- -- today is using technology to help you with.
Every -- things everyday problems that you have to deal -- maybe Europe pet owner and you've got some stuff related to your pet dog walking.
Well there's a brand new high tech way to help you as as you help your pet get the exercise that that he -- she needs we'll talk about that.
When we come right back don't go.
Welcome back everybody we're focusing on high tech help in coming up next.
Give -- trouble finding time to walk your dog.
A lot people who live in New York City have dog walkers who come and walk their dogs while there.
At work during the day and there's a New York based company called swift -- that says that they had the solution for all you pet lovers.
Take a look at their brand new video.
Joining us now on this that is for the university's founder and CEO.
With thanks very much for coming in -- -- -- video I guess it shows your typical.
New York City executive who.
Can't stay home and walk his dog so he sets up a treadmill in his office.
Not everybody can do that -- so I guess that's where you guys coming.
Yeah well I'm not looking industry has been a lot of around from any fifty years but using technology make it really make it -- in the next final.
So that owner was at home and that's not my doctors thought he needs a bit reluctant t.s and dot walker because he may not trust -- -- ethnic.
-- an official at the dog and captioning want the amount of time and the right like location so what using technology we have a GPS tracking -- And that any involvement -- going to see real time as a -- is -- walk.
I'm just an SMS message the beginning at the end of the walk so he's basically comfortable and -- -- -- as that we're actually picking really good care of his dot.
OK so for -- for those people around the country that may not be familiar as I'm guessing that there folks.
Animal owners around the country who -- like wait you hire someone to come and walk your dog but yes.
In big cities and we'll go through these full screens in a -- in big cities like New York where folks are out of there are not at home during the day they're working.
Maybe 81012 hours they do hire people dog walkers to come in.
-- walker has a key.
The dog walker takes the dog out maybe once or twice during the course of the day and sort of that's the way that it goes so this is something that would allow all.
The dog bit the pet owners to be able to make sure that they're getting what they're paying for that their animals are getting.
The amount of walk the exercise the bathroom breaks that they need because dog walkers can known -- lot of money.
Yeah exactly even -- a photo at the end of the block.
-- feel like they're not how how happy it's.
And -- didn't panic I want so like a lot of the dollar Chris currently are don't like and app pack and Madonna and I think that -- and -- -- So we department got lots and -- they -- that -- -- that they see it live as they are now being blocked.
So that's really cause money also we also have about ten to -- but when Madonna -- business and did not play that amount or not.
Okay -- but now we can use the full screens Chris -- this is sort of a step by step how dispersed the walk starts.
And you get a text on your phone I picked up -- -- for his walk.
OK and then you get to track as you said.
And -- you get to track that the walkers route live on the map so.
You get to see exactly.
-- you know where your dog is what what sites -- -- -- -- to hear New York City you get to know if you -- walking by the met for example someone or walking through central -- you can.
Very nice and then that the next one.
Is as you said you get to know when you dog has done his business.
So there's like a little button that comes up tell you and your -- gonna yeah.
-- -- I really I don't think it's really funny.
And then as you said you get to see a picture of your animal at the end of the walk with.
You -- for two miles -- he was great see you tomorrow.
Very nice and so how is this done this is with so you have your dog walker is this say -- that your dog the dog walker would have on.
His or her phone to be able to sort of transmit this kind of information.
Yes -- don't look particularly.
Training which which they go on in order to talking about locker and just have a background check and after the content -- it but one of the things and training is that we install their app on her own.
And and basically since then they're ready to go and and then the -- able to see it so it's an -- on the -- -- -- and dog owners.
But the dog owner can let -- on the west bank and and basically see it live how -- -- -- -- parents where and where it's at the how how much is it's cost so it's twenty dollars for a half an hour -- and -- -- for now more.
And if you get a -- -- say it can be reduced up to sixty dollars for half -- hour walk.
And then it's basically based on how many locks and we are piling up and.
I could see this working not just in New York City but other.
Big cities around the country do you have any plans to expand.
Yet we're prince and every major city across the United States and an athletically around the world.
The New York is really our -- -- -- resigning with.
Well I'll tell you -- I don't live in the city and you anymore about my wife and I used to.
Years ago and we had an animal.
Who was like a country dog living in -- New York City apartment.
And she needed a lot of exercise.
And so we had to have not a dog walker we had -- have a dog runner.
We have somebody who came and -- actually took her dog.
For a long runs so that she would sort of get the kind of exercise -- she needed and not be so hyperactive when we came home.
Well actually I'm happy to see the speed of the walk.
If you -- dog ran with it -- actually see how fast the number has been -- what has happened so in fifth with a runner usually.
Well I like this idea I think it's great and it's just another application for the new technology that's out there.
And a very sort of -- natural way to use this some people love their animals and and you know treat them like members of the family which they are and so this is the kind of thing.
That you want to know while you're off of work make sure that your.
-- -- that the dog's name and that.
And it's is getting the exercise that he needs the company's -- swift oh you can learn about -- -- swift -- dot com Anthony the first is the founder and CEO.
And you you came to the United States from Israeli -- yeah I wanted in the US.
Around -- -- They're -- ninth where what part of Israel.
Well nice to -- opinion thanks very much and all the best you think about it.
Another quick break and we'll be right back after this don't go away.
Welcome back -- -- with us on -- America we're talking about.
Some of the everyday problems that we have not so big problems this week but.
And some high tech solutions that folks have come up with in order to help us.
With those probably just talking about your pet and how you can keep track of -- -- a dog walker while you're off at work.
I'm not gonna talk to about a problem that a lot of runners and athletes have for hardcore runners the war or bike bicycle lists carrying money.
And information doing the work out can get a little messy.
So here's the problem I -- an easier way to pay on the go.
Philadelphia based company by the band says that they've solved that problem -- joining us from Philly is the company's.
Co-founder David Waxman David thanks very much for joining us -- talk to you.
Thanks for having Erica appreciate what is -- advance.
That's -- that's a great question so what what the played a platform is is essentially the ability to turn any wearable consumer product.
Into an electronic health record as well as a capsule castles payment device so this bracelet I'm wearing here is money and ID on your wrist.
-- so -- let's say I'm I'm off for Iran and I'm wearing the bracelet.
One of stopping get a bottle of water at local law convenience store how to I pay for with the bracelet.
Sure great question so what -- loaded the product with funds much like to -- EZ pass if you have one of those are prepaid debit card.
You go to the point of sale terminal at -- wa -- 7-Eleven whole foods and you waves.
Via the vita and for the watch you may have whichever product of -- you have -- the point of sale terminal and make purchase.
Interesting so this is as I mentioned it's it's good for payment but it's also I think important because.
You know god forbid there should be some kind of an accident while you're running or biking.
You would want.
To be able to contact.
Your family or have them be able to contact you or let.
Police be able to identify you or whomever I imagine this would help out in that scenario to.
100% I think what what happens when a consumer buys our product they created -- health record on our web site.
That links to the watch -- the -- that whatever product of ours that you have whatever information that you've stored in your health record.
In the event of emergency paramedics find you -- -- the 800 number printed on the band as you can see here the operator asked for the unique.
Eight digit number printed on the band and whatever information you've stored is given to the -- your name emergency contacts allergies.
Elements blood type.
Except now there are other ID bands of course you've got some.
Competition out there.
Speaking -- you know and devices that elderly people might Wear if they live alone they would wanna let loved ones know if for example they were to fall or need.
Emergency assistance how does your product differ from some of the others that are out there on the market.
Sure there's some great products on the market and frankly we think everyone should be safe so as well as I have an idea product that's great what our product does that no one else does this combines electronic health record.
With the cash was payment.
And as well as having multiple form factors so.
Maybe one -- when Wear the bracelet -- wait -- next -- you wanna Wear it and you know maybe the other day you wanna Wear the -- time walks.
And this we were able we allow people to sort of accessorize.
As well as.
Having it here with the vice within its petty cash on their wrist at all times to run but time watch is that what you said correct that's the name of the -- -- -- creates this -- you -- right here.
I like it I like -- are talking about a plus how much how much is it cost is -- -- a monthly.
Subscription that you have to pay or what.
So each product that we sell the first your subscription is bundled into the purchase price the product so the -- the time Perry go watch for instance is fifty dollars that includes the first -- service.
Each year service thereafter is 995 -- year because this is a payment only device beneath invite a band.
Here which is really targeting the hardcore athletes is -- 1995 for the band.
And then 1495.
-- year for payment and identification.
Well that's pretty reasonable and in this system and you're gonna use and you know hard core of runner or -- or somebody like an athlete like that.
Would would probably get you know a lot of use out of some -- -- that's so it doesn't seem like it's.
Too too expensive how much money -- you put on if you're gonna preloaded with -- is there a Max.
Short -- question so you can load up to 200 dollars at a time there's also an automatic -- function so you can set a threshold say hey every time gets to ten.
Put another fifty dollars on here for my checking or savings accounts that you're never without money which are also not -- too much money on their -- go to waste.
And I I wonder you know -- today everybody's worried about privacy.
They you know they don't want their personal information to be shared with.
You know different outside groups marketers what have you.
You're collecting information about people what are you doing with that information.
And how do you guarantee your client's privacy.
Sure obviously security and privacy are issues that are are very important to us the first thing is.
The information -- house -- a database of all of the necessary firewalls and security measures necessary.
Second the only time that this information is ever released is in the event of an emergency which.
The user is consenting to -- -- and were only releasing what you put in your health records so.
You may only put your name and emergency contact you -- -- every every you know little piece of information.
-- we will only release what you put in and we do not sell that information to third parties for marketing purposes.
I know that you co founded this product of this company with of a friend of yours.
Who you grew up with I'm always fascinated when I talked to entrepreneur or is I want to know how they came up with the idea for their business what's the back story.
Sure so -- Jason Brown is the other co-founder.
And Jason and I grew -- -- together in Philadelphia and have known each other since we are very young.
Actually Jason is that responsible for the idea.
Yourself -- run about five years ago literally in the country staying at friend's house didn't -- Hillary was going at a near miss incident with the car.
And unlike a normal person like -- meet Jason didn't get freaked out he -- -- a business opportunity called me really early that morning today.
This is what happened I knew that there's -- products in the market but I think that we can do better and we started brainstorming.
And layering on features first electronic health records and this contact with -- chip.
And that was sort of theory eureka moment where we said -- I think we have something here and start develop.
We we invite our viewers to chime in in our chat room and and one of them has said this is a frequent contributor Julie TV says hi -- -- -- -- sounds great but you need the cash to.
You've got to be able to have the cash to put it on the -- you guys -- apply that to you.
We haven't figured out how to how to make the money tree -- it now will you work on Napoli is David because I think that was -- be our next thing that should be your next big day and and I think you've got it you've got it made.
What part of Philly what part of -- -- you from.
Center City Philadelphia Simpson -- like.
Boarded -- -- these -- grew up in south Jersey.
And wondering what's going on with the Phillies as they get rid of two thirds of their outfield and just the last hours so I've been watching.
My computer and see what they're doing they're gearing up for next year David Waxman is the founder of -- of -- They're on Twitter -- -- abandoned you can find them on line website is by the band dot.
Net NET cash and identification that you can Wear on your wrist.
And nice to -- -- David all the best.
Like -- accurate.
All right so.
