Radio Smart Talk for Tuesday, December 4:
Every December, Radio Smart Talk produces a program on the latest tech gadgets or electronic devices that are on many holiday gift lists. Tuesday's show will be our annual tech gadgets program.
One of the reasons for the show is that the gadgets change every year or new ones are introduced to the market.
Charles Palmer, the Executive Director for Advanced Entertainment and Learning Technologies and an Associate Professor of Multimedia at Harrisburg University of Science and Technology and witf audio specialist Joe Ulrich will appear on the program to discuss the latest devices and answer questions about them.
Among the gadgets we'll describe are the iPad Mini, the Microsoft Surface, and Kindle Fire. Then, there are a few unique devices like the smart pen that records the audio when its user is taking notes and records what has been written or said, a video camera that can worn on a person's body or anywhere else to capture action video, or the fuel band that is worn on the wrist and tracks the wearer's movements to update the person on how much excerise they're getting.
