    Giz Wiz Show 1712 January 31, 2019 Independent Show #194 CES 2019-Part 3!

    This month (February) The Giz Wiz Show starts it's 13th year of production, and the fifth year of Independent Production! (The very first Giz Wiz show was February 20th, 2006.) Thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters we continue on! If it wasn't for them, the Giz Wiz Show would be gone. If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: http://www.gizwiz.tv. You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. Thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support, but a bit more support would be a big help. Thanks from OMGchad & DickDe!

     

    This, our last show recorded in January (31st), is still all about “2019 Consumer Electronics Show Gadgets!” Chad & I were out there in Vegas with our producer Josh, shooting lots of the videos for the show. And a thank you to Larry Gerson who shot my videos at CES while Josh & Chad were off shooting theirs. We start this show with something you may not know about:

     

    Vayyar Radar - radar that can be used in the bathroom & the rest of the house.

    In this week's show Chad reports on a new Walabot product from Vayyar Imaging. The company says that "All Walabot devices are created to help you uncover hidden things in the world around you. Our technology is based on 3D imaging sensors that use radio frequency, rather than a camera, to see through solid surfaces and create a visual image of what’s inside." The company already makes a 3D DIY device to let see people see through walls to find wiring, pipes, etc. Walabot Home, their newest gadgets, is a 3D sensor that can “see” through walls and detect motion. It mounts on a wall and is said to be able to detect if someone has fallen and well - can't get up. When Walabot detect a motion like a fall, it will automatically place a call for help to the selected contact without the fallen person needing to push a button or even be wearing a device. So that's great for an elderly person taking a shower or a bath, especially since there is no camera needed in the room. The company says it can even can detect if someone stops breathing. Another neat feature is that a person who wants help can also just push a button on the device to summon their emergency contact. The cost is $149.99 + $4.99 a month, with the 1st 6 months free.
