Cut N Go – Lifesaving Seat Belt Cutter

Tech Report

With car accidents being completely unpredictable not to mention one of the top fatalities in the U.S. every year, it’s never a bad thing to exercise as much caution as possible when you drive.

And though car accidents may be unpredictable, if we’re at least prepared, we can help lower those numbers significantly.

This is why Cut N Go was created.

Seat belt cutters haven’t made much in the way of advancements since the 80s – that is, until now.

The Cut No Go is a brand new, revolutionary tool that ensures you and your family are able to exit your vehicle safely after a collision. The Cut N Go is also childproof but allows you to cut through your seatbelt safely and quickly.

The razor-sharp blade is concealed until it’s ready for use, so you’d never know it was there. In the event of an emergency, all you need to do is simply lift and cut. 

In addition, the Cut N Go doesn’t stop at releasing your damaged seat belt. Once you’re out of your restraints, you still need to exit the car, and often after an accident, the door and/or window are unable to open. The Cut N Go features a tungsten carbide (one of the strongest metals around) breaking pin that will shatter your window with just one strike. Once you use this to shatter the window, you can exit the vehicle.

This gadget is capable of staying locked in forever, in case there’s ever a time when you’ll need it. In fact, you can’t remove it, so there’s no need to worry of it not being there for any reason.

And if you’re ever in a situation where you are unresponsive, there are stickers you can place on your window to let servicemen and women know that you have the Cut N Go system in your vehicle.

You can preorder them now at TheCutNGo.com.

Polyup – Making Math a Thinking Playground

Consumer Update

Math is at the center of everything we do. It’s imperative to understand the fundamentals of math for lifelong success, but it’s one of those subjects that can be daunting and challenging for young minds.

Polyup’s mission is to make math a fun learning experience, especially for its biggest naysayers.

Originally, Polyup was created by a professor and student in order to make math a fun learning process, where students from grades 3-12 can solve interactive math problems.

There are three different levels to bring math to life. The first is for students from grades 3 to 5. These students play games that will help them with subjects such as the order of operations and problem-solving.

The next level is for students from grades 6 to 8. These games are a bit more complex with games involving sequences, algorithmic thinking, and more.

Lastly, there’s a level for high school students, teaching subjects such as numerical methods, calculus, and even algorithms.

But as we said, this a fun learning experience. Polyup’s gorgeous design and interactive atmosphere lets students see the true beauty of math.

Polyup is available for free from any web device. Learn more at polyup.com today.

Third Reality is a company all about making home automation devices. The ‘Reality Switch’ is a device that they’re currently shipping and allows you to connect the switch to your Amazon devices and where it can tell it to turn your lights on or off.

The most fundamental part of their solution is simple to install. And for anyone who’s buying a switch and who wants to automate their home; this can be the solution you’ve been searching for. And even better, you can totally do it yourself – no electrician or third party.

Being able to DIY certainly is less daunting, isn’t it? And though a new switch in many cases would cost you $30 or $40 for you to purchase, it would cost you an additional $100 to have it installed.

With Third Reality’s device, you can also have a remote with your app. For instance, if you’re away from the house and wish to turn the lights on or off, pull up your app and check the statues to turn them on or off remotely.

Instagram Drops New Features and Kills One

A couple of weeks ago Instagram released a surprising new feature called Stories, which allows you to share all the moments throughout your day. Similar to rival app Snapchat, stories consists of mini video clips or pictures stay up for 24 hours, appearing as a mini slideshow or video series. Facebook, Instagram’s parent company, attempted to purchase Snapchat a couple of years ago. They couldn’t buy the app, but that doesn’t mean that they couldn’t integrate their ideas in their app.

But Instagram released a feature that Snapchat doesn’t have: zooming. This gives the users the ability to zoom in on other users’ photos and videos by pinching the post. Unfortunately, this feature is only available for iPhone users, but they say it will be released soon on Android.

The new zoom feature allows marketers to get even more creative with content on Instagram. Instead of watching a video in one perspective, users can now zoom around and choose a certain focus to view.

The problem with this new feature is that Instagram images content can look grainy if you zoom in too much. But this isn’t stopping users from using this new feature—there’s even a trending hashtag about Instagram’s latest addition.

These features are here to stay, but the photo map feature is on its way out. This classic feature allowed you to see a map of where a users’ photos were taken (if you allowed it). Instagram said in a statement to Mashable, “Photo Map was not widely used, so we’ve decided to remove the feature and focus on other priorities.”

So what are your thoughts? Are you sad to see the Photo-Map feature go? Or are you happy that you can zoom? Tweet us your thoughts @NewsWatchTV.
