One of the most dangerous aspects of pregnancy is the risk of post-partum hemmoraging. It can be difficult for doctors to accurately estimate the amount of blood loss by relying on visual inspection or sponge measurements. With the maternal death rate in the U.S. rising up to more than double what it was 25 years ago, Gauss Surgical has been developing an innovative iPhone/iPad app that uses phone/tablet cameras to accurately estimate blood loss, operated hands-free with the help of the AirTurn wireless BT-105 pedals.
For folks with special needs, it can be a challenge to find ways to find ways to communicate with the wider world. This is particularly true for those who struggle with fine motor skills. Operating a tablet like the iPad can seem nearly impossible when the normal interface relies on precise finger touches and swipes. To help address these issues, RJ Cooper has partnered with AirTurn to develop custom wireless iPad controllers like the VO Controller.
Cory Riback is a clown performer who uses robot puppets to teach children about STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Cory was looking for a way to remotely trigger movements and audio clips for his robots without the use of a handheld device. That's when he discovered AirTurn.
If you're a performer who works with backing tracks for sound effects or musical accompaniment you'll be glad to know that there are better options than remembering to push the "play" button on your CD player at just the right moment. Here is a list of 7 iOS and Android backing track/audio player apps that you can control remotely either hands-free or with a small handheld controller.
