Cisco ūmi is embarking on a road trip today which will take us through California, North Carolina, New York and Washington, DC. During the Cisco ūmi “Get Together” Mobile Tour, we’ll be attending some great events, and we’re excited to get out and share the ūmi experience with even more of you!
Just imagine if you could wave to your mom from the Surf City Marathon finish line—even if she’s all the way across the country! And how about video chatting in such high definition that your friends can almost smell the glass of wine in your hand at the New York Wine Expo? Or celebrate a great win (or talk a little smack) with NHL fans around the country at the NHL Fan Fair event starting tomorrow, January 28, 2011 to Sunday, January 30, 2011.
Whether you’re sipping wine, catching a wave, running your heart out or cheering on your favorite NHL players, stop by the tour bus and check out the new way to be together. Cisco is the Official Technology Partner of both the NHL & NBA so look for ūmi at both their properties!
We’ll show you all the cool things you can do with ūmi and you can give it a whirl!
Make sure to stop by ths weekend to see which NHL player Cisco ūmi is bringing to you at the Cisco ūmi at the NHL Fan Cave!
Nearly two months ago, we gave our readers a mission: Design an ultra-low-footprint apartment in 420 square feet and have a chance to win up to $70,000 in cash, products and contracts for the best ideas. Some of you may have chosen to accept the mission; others may simply be intruiged to hear what exceptional ideas came out of it.
Since October of last year, TreeHugger.com Founder Graham Hill has been searching for the perfect idea, or blend of ideas, to renovate an apartment in New York City and live an environmentally-friendly life there. He began a LifeEdited contest asking people to create a 420sf apartment with an ultra-low footprint. With the belief that we all need to live in less space and have fewer possessions, he thinks we will save money, reduce environmental impact and live simpler lives.
On top of his specifications, we challenged entrants to add a Cisco ūmi telepresence system to their apartment designs. Why? Because Graham will be using Cisco ūmi to conduct business and connect with family and friends from his apartment while reducing emissions. Here are a few Cisco ūmi contest submissions that we wanted to share:
Hundreds of comments, 300+ submissions and 500,000+ page views later, the contest is over and Graham is ready to meet with the judges and select a winner. To watch Graham announce the winners live on Thursday, January 27 from 12-1 p.m. EST, tune in here: http://www.LifeEdited.org/livestream.html.
