Not Impossible Labs and Avnet developing wearable device to help people with motor-related health issues; Hulu redesigns for the computer screen and mouse; new CEO at X1 Discovery
Not Impossible Labs, a Los Angeles-based technology incubator, has struck a deal with tech distributor Avnet with plans to develop new technology, starting with “VibroHealth,” a wearable device for people with motor-related health issues, said SoCalTech. VibroHealth bands are worn on wrists and ankles and contain “mini-motors that vibrate across a spectrum of rhythm, amplitude and frequency.”
Hulu has launched a new website designed for subscribers who watch shows on a computer. The Verge reports Hulu’s new web interface was designed for viewers who use a mouse. The new design also takes advantage of computers’ larger “screen real estate” than tablets.
X1 Discovery, a Pasadena-based maker of e-discovery and search software for the legal industry, named attorney Craig Carpenter as chief executive, SoCalTech reports. Carpenter comes to the company from Fronteo, where he was also CEO. His resume includes stints at Kroll Ontrack, Recommind and AccessData. X1 Discovery shares office space with Idealab, where it was incubated originally desktop search software but evolved to focus on electronic discovery.
