Healbe GoBe™ Raises Over $1 Million on Indiegogo

The Original 100% Automatic Body Manager Joins the Ranks of the Top Crowdfunded Projects

SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Healbe Corporation announced today that its Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign raised $1,084,944 in support of GoBe – the first and only wearable body manager that automatically measures calorie intake.

The 42-day campaign – which began on March 5 – was a huge success, raising over ten times Healbe's original goal of $100,000. It made GoBe one of the top 10 most funded projects in Indiegogo history.

GoBe received enthusiastic support from 4,474 contributors on Indiegogo, as well as over 11,000 followers on Facebook and Twitter.

"We would like to thank everyone who contributed to GoBe on Indiegogo," said Artem Shipitsyn, CEO of Healbe. "The response confirms our belief that people are looking for easier ways to manage their health and weight. We are proud to be part of a revolution in wearable technology that will empower people to go be at their best, with less effort."

As the Original 100% Automatic Body Manager, GoBe goes beyond the capabilities of ordinary fitness trackers. GoBe uses Healbe FLOW™ Technology, the patented innovation that combines information from three sensors with an advanced algorithm to calculate calorie intake through your skin. It automatically measures calories consumed and burned during any activity, along with hydration, sleep and stress—with no logging. The body manager also provides continuous heart rate monitoring, and accurately tracks calorie burn during any activity, making it the first wearable device to automatically deliver a comprehensive range of practical insights to help people live happier, healthier lives. GoBe connects to an iOS and Android smartphone app via Bluetooth to give users easy access to information from their bodies.

Prior to the start of the Indiegogo campaign, Healbe™ developed a functional prototype and smartphone app. The GoBe Original 100% Automatic Body Manager has undergone extensive internal testing to determine its accuracy, and third party testing will begin in May 2014. All funds raised through Indiegogo will go towards manufacturing the body manager and finalizing the app. The first GoBe devices are expected to ship to contributors as soon as June 2014.

In May 2014, Healbe™ will be holding an exclusive media event in New York City to give the press the opportunity to speak to its developers and experience GoBe: the Original 100% Automatic Body Manager.

"Our Indiegogo campaign showed us just how much support there is behind our innovation. Now, we are excited to meet with the media and show them what GoBe is capable of," Shipitsyn said.

More details about the media event will be released when available.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video.

In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
