Koplin has developed the first hands-free mobile computing headset called Golden-i that uses speech recognition to access any information on web in real-time high definition. It can also control multiple networks and devices to collect and record information, images, and video. The headset has a built in display screen for streaming video and seeing images.
Verizon Wireless gave a demonstration at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to illustrate the practical application for golden-i in the public safety field using the Verizon Wireless network. With Verizon’s network supporting the device the headset will have 4G connectivity and will allow for rapid communication with emergency first responders. For example, in the demonstration an Amber Alert was issued which immediately showed up on the headset display screen with a map of the location where the alert was issued so that information could be immediately given to the proper authorities.
A representative of Koplin Stephen Pombo, said it acts as a “hands free smart phone with a larger display”. Other applications for Golden-i include the field of logistics, the medical industry, private security, and in just about any other industry that is in need of information snatching. Currently there are about 200 Golden-i headsets being used and tested in the field using Verizon’s network and an increase in numbers is expected.
