The CSUN Exhibit Halls aren't always the places where you can find technology news. Sometimes they can be in the coffee shop, the line for pizza or even the lobby area of the Anaheim Marriot. J.J. caught up with Jessica Hipp, COO of WayAround, and Neva Fairchild of the AFB Center On Vision Loss in Dallas, in one of the quieter spaces at the hotel to talk about WayAround. In this conversation the pair talk about how the system is using tags for identification of materials and indoor navigation. For example, you can use WayAround to aid you in gardening, crafts and identifying specific products and objects in your home. Listen in as Jessica describes the differences between the iOS and Android versions of the app. And how you can enhance your experience with the WayLink.
