This Smart First-Aid Kit Uses Algorithms In Emergency Situations

Sadly, when an emergency situation occurs, chances are that the surrounding bystanders do not have any first aid training. That is the sad reality. And this is why Mobilize Rescue Systems has released an intelligent first aid kit that seeks to overcome this problem. It is called the Comprehensive Rescue System. This unique kit has an embedded tablet in its lid that has lessons and instructions from thousands of pages of triage and emergency response documents. It uses artificial intelligence to perform triage and walk you through first response treatment. It’s like having an EMT at your side. It has everything you need, clearly labelled with large-print numbers and letters. The ard-case version is $2,250, while a soft-case version will cost $1,750.

The Computer Watch: Whether it was the Ruputer, the MSN Direct ‘Smart’ Watches, the Timex Data Link Watch or another gadget watch – BTW – I remember having a “Transformers watch”. It was awesome!

Ramblings – 6-21-09 – Las Vegas

Day Off – Sort of A late Ramblings this week as I decided to stay offline last week. It was a long week and I was playing all weekend. It has been a while since I last took more than 24 hours off a computer, so that is a big feat for me. HP Tech Forum I had a fun time talking and working with Andy McCaskey and Kara Karsten with SDRNews. We had such a blast. We also put forward the mobile interview booth rig. We call it the “MacGyver” rig. Nonetheless, it was connected to uStream and we were able to conduct a few interviews for the event. Check out all the info on the Twitter log at #HPTF. Great to meet some new bloggers: Shane Pitman of Neowin, John Obeto of AbsoluteWindows. We had a great week along with Halley, Tom, Calvin and Rebecca from...
