Join Jeff and Pete as they delve deeply into the latest updates of the NaviLens App with Javier, and chat about many of the other useful features of this remarkable App which could have a profound impact on how we navigate both outdoors and indoors as well.
This episode is an update on recent changes to the NaviLens app. You can find out the details about the basic features of NaviLens by listening to our previous interview with Javier, published on March 12, 2021.
What’s New With NaviLens?
NaviLens 360 Vision Technology.
- Indoor Way-finding Technology allows you to record personal routes in an unknown space and travel them again at any time using a special NaviLens Tag which you can download directly from the NaviLens web site. You can create as many new personal routes as you wish and use them as often as you like.
- NaviLens 360 Vision also acts like a “magnet” with your phone by locking in the specific location of a tag in relation to you and your phone.. Once you scan it, it retains that location despite how much you turn or move in a different direction, thus allowing you to locate your desired destination or object even if you get off track.
- NaviLens can also distinguish among multiple tags and objects you may be looking for by using various different audible sound effects. For example, Javier demonstrates how to search for one specific flavor of Kellogg’s Special K cereal on a supermarket shelf and thus eliminating the sounds, and products that he doesn’t want. He can also see where the desired flavor is located with different pitches of the clicks and beeps used by the app to direct him higher or lower to pinpoint the location of the product.
You can find out more about NaviLens and be able to download free NaviLens tags on their web site at NaviLens.com.
