Where’s the Cisco ūmi “Get Together” Tour Van? Zinfandel Wine Festival, SF

- January 31, 2011 - 3 Comments

This past Saturday, the Cisco ūmi “Get Together” Tour Van was in two locations: the NHL Fan Fan Fair in Raleigh, North Carolina and the Zinfandel Wine Festival in San Francisco.

I had the opportunity to go check out the Zinfandel Wine Festival for myself and who better to take than the person I love and always want to “get together” with? My mom.

My mom has seen ūmi before at my house, but she had never experienced the “Get Together” tour van before.

As soon as she stepped inside the van, her first word was “WOW” when she saw the living room set-up. Then came the real “WOW Factor”: ūmi!

My mom was blown away by the quality of the picture and sound. She said she felt like the Cisco ūmi representative playing the game over ūmi was in the same room as her!

I had such a fantastic time with my mom at the festival and throughout the rest of the weekend however when I’m not able to see her, ūmi is definitely the next best thing!

  1. Barbara-Thank you so much for sharing your touching story with us! I am so happy that you were able to find your friend and now be able to help her get through these hard times. umi is definitely a perfect way to stay in touch with your friends and family and be able to tell them how much you care!

  2. My friend, Michelle, the sweetest, happiest person I remember. She moved away and I lost touch with her and recently found her on facebook. She is suffering from situational depression after losing her son. It got me thinking, wouldn't Umi be perfect those dealing with illness, or depression, those that are alone or the elderly, even those in abusive relationships. Friends and loved ones could see them when calling to check in on them, sometimes we aren't always aware what someone is dealing with over the phone. I think everyone who has an elderly or sick relative living alone and at a distance should have an Umi.
