First Segment: Venture. Peter Austin Onruang, Founder/President. In 2011 a little-known company rose from obscurity to lead the industry in police body worn camera technology. Since then we have set the standards for all to follow. We were the first to produce a body camera with 1080p high definition video recording. The first with GPS Geotag technology and night vision. Also the first to develop a three in one multipurpose device. The list goes on. In just a couple of years we have made “Wolfcom” a recognizable brand worldwide.

First Segment: Mighteor. Dr. Jason Kahn, Co-Founder “Most interventions fail kids because kids do not want them. We had to build a new tool from scratch. Kids respond to emotions differently than adults do. They can feel big emotions and act out in unfamiliar ways. Our program had to be fun and meet kids on their level. Kids love video games and games mimic life. Video games are the perfect tool to help kids grapple with emotional control. You try, fail, then try again. We started with rigorous scientific studies and then piloted with 100 families in their homes. Kids played. Symptoms abated and families were less stressed. Our reach was limited at Boston Children’s Hospital. It was time to launch Mighteor. Emotional strength empowers kids to succeed in life. Our mission is to help millions of kids discover their emotional strength. We provide families a proven tool they can use in their home. We keep kids engaged with new games and content every month. We welcome you to join us on this journey.” – Mighteor Second Segment: Computer and Technology News Today’s Topics: Nikola/Bosch Long Range Fuel Cell Truck HTC Vive Goes Without A Computer YouTube Brings Subscriptions To Live Streaming iOS 11 Is Here And More!
