Contextual technology gathered up and situational relevance and intelligence added. To call this security conscious "vehicle-to (and from)-everything" platform a Dash Cam is a bit of an injustice to the scope of this connected car ecosystem. Connects directly to the car's OBD port so know's what's going on internal to the vehicle systems and puts that into the contexts of info, location plus driver and family to deliver valuable set of person centric capabilities. The feature list is long, but the Raven, with cameras looking out and in and all knowing connectivity delivers peace of mind while driving. Not just for driver and passangers, but for family as well. This caught my eye because of what the overall technology combination delivers when the IoCar intelligently intersects with access to information, the IoT and IoMe and mine. 

So many stated features. Here's what they say. (my comments in parenthesis) 
Raven gives cars the intelligence and voice needed to proactively communicate with drivers and their families, making them smarter, safer and more connected while on the road.
At home, at work or a thousand miles away, Raven’s always-on and always-connected system gives family members and car lovers unprecedented peace of mind with:
*  Live streaming camera views, both road-facing and in-cabin 
* Security alerts (car broken into?)
* Departure and arrival notifications (mapping)
* Driving reports (even capture time lapse synopsis of journey)
* Gesture controls (and voice commands coming soon)
* Next-turn navigation
* Weather condition updates
* Vehicle diagnostics
* Wi-Fi hotspot
Raven unmasks the sophistication and intelligence locked under the hood in today’s vehicles and makes it readily accessible to drivers.
Raven has been designed and engineered from the ground up by a highly accomplished team passionate about best in-class performance and user experiences.

(The connectivity to the web and to a defined group of friends and family is a real value proposition understated here)  Worth a visit to the Raven Website for more details on use cases and how it works.

Wearables, IoT and IoMe!

Observations from first night at CES. Attended CES Unveilled.
So much IoT and I of Me stuff here, it's unbelievable to see how the enabling technologies (chips and standards) are being combined with user and sector expertise to produce everything from networked tape measures to pool thermometers. Oh yes, and we have moved from plants that tell you when they need water (via Twitter) to plants that water themselves! Lots of fashion and jewellery stuff as the technology becomes small enough to be inside just about anything with all the heavy lifting, analysis and connectivity happening in the mobile phone or on the Net via WiFi.
The meek and the sleek are about to inherit the earth (from the geek)!
My first impressions were not wrong. This turned to be a very interesting and enlightening week!
