Product Desc: MOD

The MOD is a wrist-mounted wearable tech platform designed with makers and artists in mind. Handmade of black leather, steel rivets, screws and an Omega clasp closure, it gives folks three internal suede pockets for keeping sacred things (each is shipped with the EVR1 Canon disk inside, a collection of humanity's greatest written works), and 8 exterior screws that serve as mounting points for art and technology modules.

We're calling it the "MOD", for artists and makers to MOD-ify / innovate on top of, to create wearable technology prototypes and as an enduring fashion item for the broader public that changes with the times, tastes and tech. We hope to inspire folks to get back in their shops and start tinkering with their own wrist-mounted art projects and technology solutions (e.g. using an arduino chip, OLED display, gps, ultrasonic range finder, mp3 player). The wrist is a perfect place to control other pieces of wearable and non-wearable technology as well. It's sort of a Dick Tracy - Batman inspired creativity platform. Buy one bracelet for life and customize as necessary.

Beta version is available at www.collegenode.com, with expected launch date of May 2013.

Micha Benoliel, CEO of Open Garden

"My ultimate challenge is to provide free wireless broadband access to the internet and advocate Net Neutrality. I first began learning how to become a technology entrepreneur at age 8,  when I taught myself how to code on a flight simulator in Basic on a  Zenith PC that my father was using for accounting. Then I made my first  games on a Texas Instrument TI 99 4A. Obviously, I quickly became a fan  of the Atari 512ST and the Amiga 500. 
Among the several telecommunications services I launched in the last 10 years, I had a lot of fun operating Skype In and Skype Out in several  European countries and later the first Skype premium live translation  service from english to 15 foreign languages for businesses."

    Could we demo edu apps? Microsoft VP Tony Salcito wrote about his experience while presenting our apps to Global Education Summit:
    Showing the power of technology with a cool 3-D app drew "oohs" and "ahhs" from the audience. Corinth developed a 3-D interactive platform and an app called Corinth Micro specifically for the Global Forum in just 6 weeks. Corinth's apps enrich the learning experience by providing detailed objects and environments that the user may freely explore (like individual leaves or cell structures). Using a demo example of search for "plant viruses" I found documentation through Kno and then zoomed in on images of leaves to look around 3-D cellular structure. It was pretty amazing!
