Industry: Start-Ups

Makers and innovators from central Ohio gathered at the Columbus Idea Foundry as Contentvia's Ryan McManus discussed The Internet of Caring Things and its importance.

Columbus, OH (PRUnderground) May 28th, 2015

Last week ContentVia held their first Hardware Maker meet up at the Columbus Idea Foundry to discuss the emerging field of The Internet of Caring Things. In today’s world, technology is everywhere. Many products and services are now at the touch of a glass screen, some only adding to plethora of distractions of the every day. While these technologies may be cool to own (we’re looking at you smart refrigerator), they don’t care for the wellbeing of the consumer. That is why ContentVia is in the business of Internet of Caring Things, technologies that promote the physical health, mental wellbeing, safety and security, and connection to loved ones. Nearly 50 people came to listen to speakers from companies like Founder’s Factory, Indiegogo, and Verizon. Creators then had the opportunity to promote their ideas.


“Innovators that want to impact others’ lives for the better, those are the people I want to be in business with.” – Ryan, McManus, President of ContentVia


ContentVia is also happy to report success with their current clients!

Some of the caring technologies that ContentVia is working closely with are Tympani, a small infrared thermometer that plugs works with iOS and Andriod smartphones, The Defender, pepper spray with the ability to take a picture of the attacker and alert 911 along with many other features, and Ardina, a healthcare benefits program with 24/7 access to telemedicine for a low yearly fee. ContentVia also successfully crowdfunded Platinum Series Baseball, a realistic, baseball strategy board game licensed by the MLBPA.
