Ufree is a smartphone application that helps busy students find out when their friends are free to hangout, in real-time. Students sync their school schedules and are alerted when a friend is “free” and nearby, suggesting events that they can attend during their free time. Ufree was created in a time before Snapchat location sharing was available and filled a previous student need. The app allowed others to easily connect with their peers when trying to find general social interaction, as well as assisted in planning for group assignments and projects while accommodating everyone's schedules. Ufree gained rapid adoption in 2014-15 which led to its acquisition in 2015.
Witness was built to solve an evidentiary problem within the justice system. In almost all cases, video evidence is not admissible as it lacks a clear Chain of Custody and it’s very costly and time consuming to deliver. Witness created two patented solutions: a smartphone application for the general public and SaaS for police authorities. The mobile application allowed individuals to live stream to the police, with an option to remain anonymous. All video evidence was preserved with a Chain of Custody report to be delivered to court seamlessly. In 2015, the Tucson Police Department partnered with Witness to test the software in Tucson. They used the portal to view live videos being streamed and deploy police if needed to the geo-location of the activity. The opportunity to provide a similar bodycam type technology to protect the general public still exists. If this is something you’re passionate about, I’d be more than happy to share my knowledge with you: .
The Cup is a product designed to utilize the software capabilities of newer beverage dispensing machines to prevent soda theft and limit soda consumption. Soda is extremely cheap to produce, however a restaurant’s cost is actually higher than the average consumer expects at around $0.25 per refill. The loss of potential revenue quickly adds up for the large chain restaurants as their staff is told to not confront customers taking advantage as it can harm their loyalty. The Cup solves this problem through its patented technology that embeds an RFID chip into a cup that communicates to a beverage dispensing machine. The machine remains in a water-only state and only when a purchased cup is placed underneath the dispenser, will it enable the beverage dispensing functionality. If you are interested in this technology, please reach out to me: .
