I Watch You Back

Human TVSoon­­­, the websites you visit while watching TV could adapt in real time to the shows being watched — automatically presenting information relevant to the show, or even tuning their ads in response to what’s on screen.

Flingo, which developed the technology, known as Sync Apps, says the new set is already being mass-produced by one of the top five television brands in the U.S. and will retail for less than $500.

A new type of Internet-connected television, due out before the end of the year, has built-in software and hardware that send data about what is on-screen to an Internet server that can identify the content. Web pages being viewed using the same Internet connection as the TV set can then tap into that information. The system can identify any content onscreen, whatever the source, whether live TV, DVDs or movie files playing from a computer.

Ashwin Navin, Flingo’s CEO, says he expects people to opt in because the service offers an automatic way to do what people are already doing manually.

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!

    Unquestionably believe that that you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be at the internet the easiest factor to remember of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed at the same time
    as people thjnk about cocerns that they plainly
    don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and defined out the
    whole thing without having side-effects , other people could take a
    signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

    Incredible! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and
    design. Outstanding choice of colors!
