Kulumi - International team from 5 continents releases product that gives Hope through Technology

The team at Hope Tech Global combined the latest advances in technology to create a unique product: KULUMI. It is the first of its kind and it will help create a brighter tomorrow for millions of people living in the Developing World.

BEIJING, Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has just finished and tech firms were able to show off their latest and greatest inventions. Faster, Higher Resolutions, Bigger... Better? What is the result of all this innovation?

Is the innovation creating a brighter tomorrow? Are the innovations putting us on the right path? Will consumerism continue to fuel society or are we on the verge of post-consumerist society? Do we need bigger, faster or do we need to get back to what it means to truly live?

One company, Hope Tech Global, has taken on the challenge to innovate with meaning. Their goal is not to serve the high end markets. No - their goal is to create technology that can make a difference for those who need it most, for those who have the least access to technology and for those who realize that the current consumer trends are not a sustainable end game.

The team at Hope Tech Global is small but diverse. The members represent 6 countries from 5 continents and their mission is to bring Hope through Technology on a Global scale. They have just launched their first product, Kulumi. Kulumi combines a powerful LED light with an audio player to enable a portable device that can be used in a wide range of settings. It is unique, it is beautiful and it was created with a passion for impact.

Kulumi gives you light when the power is gone. Imagine what it feels like to have no electricity. It means that you lose lighting and the ability to communicate, to just name a few. What happens when your grid goes down? What happens when your government fails to provide power? 1.7 billion people know what it feels like to live with unstable power or none at all.

Kulumi also has an audio player. Do you know how many oral learners there are in the world? They amount up to almost 4.3 billion. Chances are high that you are one of them. Do you know how many people can still not read or write? There are almost 1 billion, and audio education is a way for them to also get one step ahead in this world.

Kulumi, a small device with massive potential. Providing extended productivity in the dark, backup power and light, the ability to charge a phone, audio education, entertainment, a speaker phone and music amplification. A gift that was designed to be shared. It all adds up to hope, empowerment and technology that matter for those who need it most.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together. The number of software platforms, apps, hardware and connectivity standards is creating paralysis among businesses that are afraid of being locked into a solution.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
