One of my favorite companies, YANTRA is not only following this trend, but helping set the trend now and into the future. YANTRA products make great holiday gifts.
YANTRA selections are the ultimate product for travel as products have multiple uses. "The Bomb" hair balm is a beard moisturizer, cuticle cream, chapstick and hair texturize that can fit in any bag. "Reign Supreme" hair serum is used to moisturize hair, give it shine, great for hair that maybe hasn't been washed in a couple days to make it smell amazing and give it a boost!
"The Bomb" utilizes 3 major moisturizers: Shea butter, Coconut Oil and Beeswax. Shea butter and coconut oil give you the immediate moisture that dry skin, hair and cuticles require. The beeswax creates a barrier that will help to not only absorb moisture from the atmosphere but will help "The Bomb" to remain in place and give you the moisture that you need for just $40.
Alexandrian Laurel oil is used in the serum and is full of lipids. Lipids are fatty acids that have normally only been used in skin care, and for the first time hair in "Reign Supreme". Taking advantage of the Alexandrian Laurel oils natural benefits, this is a serum that not only helps with immediate results but long term hydration the more you use it, and the price point is only $60.

A unique robot toy that engages even the youngest children in active STEM/STEAM Learning. With KIBO, 4-7 year olds create, design, decorate and bring their own robot to life! KIBO kids' imaginations soar - all without requiring screen time!

Even if you've heard of KIBO before, there are a few new updates and add-ons that we have this year! This year there us a new activity center guidebook, 4 new module guides, a free throw extension and a marker extension set. http://kinderlabrobotics.com/ extensions-and-more/ and http://kinderlabrobotics.com/blog/press-releases/kinderlab-robotics-introduces-free-throw-extension-set-for-kibo-robot/.

Designed for open-ended play, KIBO lets kids make almost anything - a character from a story, a carousel, a dancer, a race car - anything the child can think of. They plan a coding sequence using the programmable wooden building blocks, scan their sequence with KIBO, press its button and watch their creation go!
When children build, code and decorate their own robot, they are learning invaluable skills that will lead them on the path for success in STEM/STEAM and future careers. Developed by Dr. Marina Bers after 20 years of child development research at Tufts University, KIBO is used in 54 countries and has been tested and approved by thousands of children and their caregivers.

KIBO is designed to teach children aged 4–7 to build, program, decorate, and bring their own robot to life without requiring any screentime. It serves as an open platform on which students can imagine and create their own robot. Students plan a coding sequence using the programmable wooden building blocks, scan their sequence with KIBO, press its button—and the robot comes alive.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Tissot with Trae Young and What Arrived at Rick's This Week

This week, Rick and Sully take a look at what has arrived at Rick's doorstep in the last week or so.

Rick also had the chance this past weekend go attend an event with Atlanta Hawks rookie star, Trae Young.

It was for the watch company Tissot. - Affordable and elegant watches.

Trae Young, the top draft pick of the Atlanta Hawks has been everything Hawks and NBA had hoped he would be as the NBA season is just about three weeks old. He’s also looking for specifics when he’s in the market for a new watch. So a partnership with Tissot was something he had his eye on, even before the NBA Draft. So much so, that Young spent the better part of Sunday afternoon shopping in front of media and greeting fans in the Tissot area of Dillard’s at Perimeter Mall.

Tissot offers distinguished and accessible Swiss watches using special materials, advanced functionality and meticulous design detail to create precise and stylish pieces. As it continues to create pioneering creations, Tissot stands by its signature, “Innovators by Tradition.” In addition to other designations, Tissot is the Official Timekeeper and Watch of the NBA at us.tissotshop.com. Take a look at the Tissot watches and their prices.

They are affordable and make great holiday gifts.

1.  Wonder Bag - Slow Cooker
https://www.wonderbagworld.com/
$40 - $60 depending on size

The ingenious non-electric slow cooker uses heat-retention to make the most perfect chili, eggplant parmesan, biriyani, korma, poached salmon, fall off the bone lamb curry, puddings, french toast and more - the Wonderbag has inspired so many delicious recipes, some by celebrity Chefs like Marcus Samuelson, that they have their own cookbook! Savvy chefs can pop a dish from the stove into their Wonderbag, place it in the trunk, and open a perfectly slow-cooked hot meal when they arrive at their campsite, the slopes or their family gathering.

The Wonderbag isn't just an ingenious cooking innovation, it is a catalyst for change. The South African invention, one of gifts Meghan and Harry received for their wedding, is saving lives from smoke inhalation, combating deforestation, providing time women to work and for children to go to school and decreasing the incidents of rape (82% of rapes happen while women and girls are gathering firewood). Wonderbag has also proven to be an unrivaled economic stimulant. In rural African communities the intervention of a Wonderbag can help a family go from 20 cents a day income to $2 a day

Cold brew is all the rage in coffee, so Cuisinart's Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker introduces a new way to make authentic cold brew coffee – in as little as 25 minutes and at a cost we all can afford. Like traditional cold brewers, the Automatic Cold Brew Coffee Maker saturates coffee grounds in cool water, never exposing them to the high temperatures that release oils, which can create an acidic taste. Cuisinart utilizes a unique spin technology to circulate coffee through water for total flavor extraction in a fraction of the time manual brewers require, meaning that coffee is naturally smoother and sweeter. Makes great cold brew at a fraction of the price.

Limpert Tech "SullyCast" on ALT 105.7 and iHeartRadio - Top Tech Trends

This week, Rick and Sully take a look at a list of the top strategic technology trends that organizations need to explore in 2019.

You need to be familiar with these terms...
 
Have a listen to Rick and Sully:


1.  Immersive experience

Look beyond virtual reality and augmented reality to a future model of immersive user experience, where we connect with the digital world across hundreds of surrounding edge devices. These include traditional computing devices, wearables, cars, environmental sensors and consumer appliances.


2.  Autonomous things

This includes robots, drones and autonomous vehicles that use AI to automate functions previously performed by humans. The next shift is likely to be from standalone intelligent things to swarms of collaborative devices working either independently or with human input. For example, a drone could decide that a field is ready for harvesting, and dispatch a robot harvester. Or in the delivery market, the most effective solution may be to use an autonomous vehicle to move packages to the target area. Robots and drones on board the vehicle could then ensure final delivery of the package."

Some interesting possibilities to watch.
 

3. Augmented analytics

Augmented analytics focuses on the use of machine learning to improve how analytics content is developed and used. Gartner said augmented analytics capabilities will quickly go mainstream as part of data preparation, data management, modern analytics, business process management, process mining and data science platforms. As it automates the process of data preparation, insight generation and insight visualisation, it could eliminate the need for professional data scientists in many scenarios.
 


4.  Data Mining

Data mining is the practice of examining large amounts of data in user databases and websites to find consumer patterns, behaviors, and relationships that can be useful in marketing goods and services online.

 

5. Quantum computing


It's still very early days for quantum computing, which promises to help find answers to problems too complex for traditional computers to solve. Industries including automotive, financial, insurance, pharmaceuticals and the military have the most to gain from advancements in quantum computing, and Gartner said that CIOs should start planning for it by understanding how it can apply to real-world business problems with the aim of using it by 2023 or 2025.

6.  mHealth

An abbreviation for mobile health, the term for all mobile devices and apps that allow patients and providers to monitor health information. It is a rapidly growing sector for both patients and providers.
