LLC., a lifestyle robotics developer, today announced that it will
be demonstrating AIMe®,
its robotic auto-framing system for smartphones and cameras, at the 2014
National Association of Broadcasters Show® (NAB) in Las Vegas. AIMe is
expected to be another showstopper at NAB, just as it was in January at
International CES® and the 2014
Winter Outdoor Retailer shows.

was founded by professional filmmakers and broadcasters with a passion
for art and technology and we are honored to be demonstrating AIMe at
the NAB Show to our peers,” said Donna Root, Co-Founder and President of
Jigabot. “Attendees who experience a demo will find AIMe to be the
ultimate video framing and tracking tool for use in the media and the
Compatible with any smartphone or camera, the AIMe mount and tracking
system is a robot that provides a hands-free way of keeping a subject
perfectly framed while aiming a mounted camera during shooting.
Brilliant for professionals and consumers alike, it can be used for
broadcast interviews, gathering b-roll, recreation, extreme sports,
weddings and other home-life activities.
Using Jigabot’s patent-pending technology, AIMe automatically tracks,
pans, and tilts a camera (e.g. GoPro® or other camera under 12 oz.) or
smartphone (e.g. iPhone®, Android®, Windows®), in response to a
subject’s movements—all in real time. To ensure shooting accuracy and
the smoothest possible operation, AIMe syncs with EmIT®, a wearable and
mountable sensor that attaches to any subject, to create a perfectly
“It is a perfect tool for getting difficult shots with ease, and for
running multiple cameras from unique angles,” said Rick Stout, CEO and
Co-founder. “And filmmakers, actors, and broadcast journalists can hide
EmIT beneath their wardrobe and AIMe will still track, enabling video
recording, and auto-framing, as action develops,” continued Stout.
“AIMe’s quick-release upper and lower mounts can mate with
industry-standard mounts, including tripods, GoPro® mounts, and
smartphone accessories,” said Root. “Thus lights and microphones and
other broadcasting & filmmaking tools can be attached to an AIMe. The
custom, high-speed servos use medical grade gears which provide high
resolution and remove noise during filming,” continued Root. “A
limitless number of AIMe devices, equipped with cameras, lights, and
microphones, can all follow one EmIT—or several—which have been set to
the same mode or pulse pattern. This makes AIMe a must-have tool in the
box of every camera operator and audio engineer in the broadcast media
and film world.”
With 90,000 plus attendees from 156 countries, the NAB Show is the
world’s largest electronic media show covering filmed entertainment and
the development, management and delivery of content across all mediums.
The show is home to solutions that transcend traditional broadcasting
and embrace content delivery to new devices in new ways. And, Jigabot’s
AIMe is expected to be one of the most innovative technologies that NAB
participants and industry leaders will be implementing in 2014.
Jigabot and AIMe stole the show at 2014 International CES® and Outdoor
Retail® Winter Market 2014, received many recognitions and awards,
including these: “Most Innovative Product at CES” - Videomaker®
Best In Show and Best Gear in 2014 – Gear Junkie®
“Best Tech of CES 2014” – “One of the top 15 coolest, smartest and
wildest robots you must have in your home.” – Mashable®
“One of the top five robots announced at CES” – Fast Company®
“AIMe could revolutionize the way action sports are shot…It’s the
ultimate dream of every GoPro-wielding skier, mountain biker, and sky
diver: a video camera so smart it can follow you through the shot,
keeping you at the center of every frame, unassisted by human hands.”
– Men’s Journal
Additionally, at the Sundance
Film Festival® in January, institute and festival
co-founder Sterling Van Wagenen said this about Jigabot’s AIMe:
“She’s the star of the show.”
“At the Oscars® in February, dozens of celebrities,
producers and filmmakers—including nominees and Oscar winners—couldn’t
have been more excited about AIMe,” said Root. “Jigabot and AIMe are
receiving great interest at every show we attend and everywhere we go,”

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
