Japan Post is a government-owned holding company that runs a postal service and a “watch over” service where postal employees would check up on elderly people and report back to their families about their well-being.
In 2015, Japan Post partnered with Apple and IBM, where a Japan Post worker will show up at elderly people’s homes with an iPad loaded with “quality of life” apps to assist them in various tasks such as scheduling medical appointments, hiring home maintenance professionals, volunteering, and coordinating travel.
Japan Post is in Silicon Valley to explore innovations, especially in the aging and senior care areas. Today, the key members of their executive management team spent time at our OhmniLabs’ office to explore possible ways in which they can augment their current offering to ensure the well-being of the elderly community in an interactive manner. We are extremely honored that they decided to spend quality time with our team on their Silicon Valley innovation tour!
With technology evolving on a daily basis, the learning curve is growing larger and larger between the elderly and the younger generation. We are proud that our Ohmni robot is part of FamilyCircle’s recent coverage on technologies that are helping the elderly live independently, and bringing generations closer by bridging the technology gap.
The Ethereal Summit in San Francisco last week brought together a fantastic lineup of speakers in the blockchain and ethereum ecosystem, as well as an eclectic mix of attendees. It’s not every day that you get to see a meditation and massage area at a conference!
The summit was divided into sessions and workshops where the sessions provided insights into topics like investing in blockchain, how to launch an ICO to the future of crypto exchanges. Workshops were hands on interactions and provided expertise on topics like smart contracts, ethereum blockchain programming and design thinking.
The biggest highlight of the event was Peter Diamandis’ inspiring talk on how blockchain & AI has democratized products and services in every major industry while creating an incredible world of abundance.
Recently, we discussed how we see Ohmni shaping the future of home care on CheddarTV.
During the program, OhmniLabs co-founder and CEO Thuc Vu explained how and why we aim to place affordable robots in every home.
He also discussed his thoughts on the next challenges home robotics will tackle in the near future and what’s next for OhmniLabs. To hear Thuc's views on the evolution of telepresence technology, the use of robotics in senior care and his inspiration behind co-founding OhmniLabs, watch the video of the broadcast.
