Wow! What an awesome experience it is to take a product into a whole new world! The FirstLook 360 was built to be rugged and multipurpose but who knew the extent of it!… Last week we were in the UK and met with a prominent Police force to discuss law enforcement applications for the FL360 camera. The next couple of hours was a combination of enlightenment (for us) and excitement (for us all) as the cogs of our minds started turning and we explored the many potential use cases for the FL360 by Law enforcement professionals, it was a really eye opening experience. Follows is a quick summary of the areas this rugged 360 camera could be used.
Specialty Firearm teams, Emergency Response Teams, Prisons, Hostage Situations, Drug Lab Takedowns, Large Vehicle Search, Ship Board Void Search & Seizure, Room Entry & Clearing, Building search – attics, basements, crawlspaces. Additionally, the ability to record and share and playback a full 360 view of an area before carrying out an operation could be a real game changer.
We left a camera system for evaluation and trial can’t wait to get the feedback… more to come on this…

What’s great about a wireless mobile integrated 360° technical rescue camera? App updates!!!!! Oh yes, finally a rescue camera that gets better over time. We’ve got a new update to the FL360 App media gallery and want to share the new features.
1. Scrubbing – An operator can now fast forward/rewind/pause through an entire 360° recorded video.
2. Looping – We now offer one touch continuous play.
3. Metadata – Images are now stamped with GPS coordinates, date, time, camera serial number, and size of file. Videos already have this feature.
4. Mapping – Images are now cached on the map for review.
5. Media Tab – we now have both images and videos located in the same screen.
6. Recorded Video Snapshot – While playing recorded 360° video the operator can now record snapshots. Those snapshots will also have metadata attached.
More to come, so stay tuned for more from the Agility Bat Lab!
ADVANCING TECHNICAL RESCUE!
The role of a Product Manager (PM) is incredibly important to any organization and it’s direction moving forward. The Product Manager helps keep the company focused, avoiding “shiny objects” that may appear to be good opportunities but in reality are distractions. Products and enhancements are built and marketed based on market needs, regardless of how great a new innovation may seem. A PM cuts through the noise of hundreds of great ideas and customer requests to guide the organization down a path that results in maximized revenue at minimized cost. It is their role to persuade others to do what’s right for the company.
Josh Elman from Greylock Partners put together a great presentation on the subject and it’s certainly worth a read. Check it out here…….. “Let’s Talk About Product Managers.”

The objective is to design a product or service of significance and solve an open-ended problem in electrical or computer engineering.
Agility Technologies is very excited to have been accepted and to have the opportunity to work with some of the smartest engineering students from UBC.

Every month I hold a webinar for my Abundance 360 executive mastermind members that focuses on different exponential technologies impacting billion-person problems.
This week I interviewed Padma Warrior, CTO and Chief Strategist of Cisco, to discuss the Internet of Everything (IOE).
Padma is a brilliant and visionary person, one of the most important female leaders of this decade.
She first got my attention when she quoted a recent Cisco study placing the value of IoE as a $19 trillion opportunity.
