Trampolines didn’t need to be Internet-connected, but here we are



Nothing can be left unconnected in the Internet of Things-era, not even your trampoline.

While you might think of it as a pretty inanimate item — a mat stretched over a bunch of springs — the Australian company Springfree Trampoline is taking its products online and turning them into  interactive gaming devices.

Marketing its latest innovation as “the world’s first smart trampoline,” the mat has four in-built sensor pads that connect via bluetooth to Android or iOS tablets using Tgoma software (That’s Tgoma as in “take gaming outside and make it active,” obviously). Once the accompanying Tgoma app is downloaded, nine jumping games are available including kid-focused activities and fitness regimes for adults. Read more…

Microsoft’s Seeing AI app for the blind now reads handwriting

Artificial intelligence took center stage at Microsoft's AI Summit in San Francisco on Wednesday. Aside from announcing AI smarts for a range of software -- from Bing to Office 365 -- the tech titan is also ramping up its Seeing AI app for iOS, which uses computer vision to audibly help blind and visually impaired people to see the world around them. According to Microsoft, it's nabbed 100,000 downloads since its launch in the US earlier this year, which convinced the tech titan to bring it to 35 countries in total, including the EU.

It's also getting a bunch of new features. The app now boasts more currency recognition, adding British pounds, US dollars, Canadian dollars, and Euros to its tally. Going beyond the color in a scene, it can also spot the color of specific objects, like clothes. Plus, it's no longer restricted to just short printed text, with handwriting recognition now part of its skill set. You can also customize the voice that it uses to speak its observations out loud, and set how fast it talks.

Finally, a musical light detector alerts you to the light in an environment with an audible tone -- Microsoft claims the tool will save users from having to touch a hot bulb or LED battery to check if it's on. Despite the big update, there's still no word on an Android launch.
