Ziv Gillat, vice president of Sales and Marketing for Eye-Fi, presents on why he started the company five years ago, how the technology works, and where to get it. When you first hear about the GPS-enabled digital memory card that Eye-Fi produces you will feel like a kid in a candy store. This memory card is the one you've been waiting for. During the presentation, Ziv takes a picture of the group, uploads it to his computer and, as he already has an account with Eye-Fi, within seconds a waypoint of the photo appears on a Google Map. This technology is useful for backpackers across Europe who want to capture their travels both on digital images and a map or Grandparents who would love to see your latest pictures from the Grand Canyon while you're still there.
The presentation was recorded at Google headquarters on July 15, 2008, and lasts for 23:56 minutes.
