Dash is turning Dumb Cars into Smart, Futuristic Machines

Dash may lead to a sea change in the way that we think about our cars and how we drive

Your car is a hot bed of data that goes unused. Dash makes use of this by keeping track of how much you drive, where you can get gas, and you can even instruct Dash to detect if you get in an accident and automatically text someone an alert.

Unlock enhanced performance, cost savings and social driving. Smarter. Driving. Everyday.


Dash connects your smartphone to your car with a simple, low-cost device which you can install yourself - simply reach under your steering wheel and plug in in! No mess, no mechanic, no problem.

Computer vision is a rich field of academic, commercial and industrial research, the implications of which extend tendrils into virtually every aspect of our lives. Anticipating needs before they arise, and understanding needs that a person might not even be aware they have, make up the broader blue sky opportunities for a tech like this.

Perceptual computing encompasses the whole field of analyzing data captured with sensors and visualization systems like cameras and infrared light. Computer vision is one component of the field, which allows devices to ‘see’ the areas around it more like a human does — or better. Getting 3D sensing onto phones, and spatial and topographic contextual awareness is table stakes for the n…

Conversations that last, with the people you love

+Google+ Hangouts brings one-on-one and group conversations to life with photos, emoji, and video calls(with up to 10 people at once). Catch up with friends and family even when you're on the go.
