FirstLook360 and Law Enforcement Applications

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…

Product Management = Incredibly Important

Product Management = Incredibly Important

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.”
