Winner’s Introduction

Adaptablox.com by Resonant Games: Video chat with educational games and activities

600_415697672Resonant Games is a studio that specializes in social apps with synchronous interactivity. Our team has been working together for the past 15 years developing Social Games, Virtual Worlds and F2P Mobile Games.

As parents with distant relatives we recognized the need for an accessible video chat application for distributed families. With Adaptablox.com we set out to create a video chat platform that would allow participants to join in a shared space with one click (no download or plugin required). Once connected, family members can synchronously share content like toys, books and educational games to add context to the conversation. Eventually, family members will be able to upload photos, create drawings together and record their session for sharing externally.

Our demo at Adaptablox.com is a prototype of what will ultimately evolve into a HUB for the distributed family. We are excited about the enthusiasm for our video chat platform because we know that it solves a real problem and we are anxious to take it to the next level.

For anyone that is interested in discussing investment opportunities please reach out to us at hello@resonantgames.com

Fundoo InnovationsIntegrating “E-Commerce & E-Gaming,” to create a novel channel of gamified promo marketing 

Our product line, seamlessly integrates (a) entertainment, (b) simple wagering by players, on (c) easy-to-learn games, with a (d) winning opportunity on (e) selected discounted consumer products & services (P&S). We have granted patents, a couple of customers and dev teams in USA & India. Adequate funding will accelerate our growth trajectory.

FeelingsIntel Company:  Targeted Advertising from Context specific feelings extracted from Smart-Phone texting

Human communication has to be processed by an “affect language parser” (ALP) to extract emotions and draw human-like inferences, which are credible & therefore understandable / acceptable to humans. This emotion extraction enables targeted advertising for products & services, to be sent to opt-in consumer, in a timely manner. We have an “unfair advantage” in ALP technology, disclosed in granted patents, thereby making “FeelingsIntel” a sustainable funding-worthy enterprise.

Grush: Grush transforms the brushing chore into a fun and interactive game. Motion sensing brush and mobile games guide kids’ brushing and lets parents track results.

Problem: Tooth brushing is often viewed by children as an unpleasant chore because they can’t see what they are doing and do not know whether they are doing it properly. Additionally, they find the twice daily task as boring because they don’t understand the benefits of brushing and receive no feedback or reward from it. It’s hard for kids to consistently brush their teeth with proper technique when they get no feedback. Parents have to spend a lot of time supervising their child’s brushing to avoid tooth decay and high dental treatment costs.
Solution: The Grush (Patent Pending)platform makes brushing visible for kids and turns brushing into a fun game. This interactive game rewards kids for proper brushing technique. Parents are provided with a method to monitor kids’ brushing. Brushing results are stored in the cloud for data access.
