Informatics major wins west coast trip with “Spubble”
Informatics junior Jacob Steinerman’s new startup, MoBlue Technology, was featured recently in the gadgets column of the Ann Arbor edition of Examiner.com. He and his team have developed Spubble, an innovative smart phone app for individuals with speech impairments, communication issues, or autism.
Icons on the phone represent food, people, places, numbers, and general categories. Tapping on words in the sub-categories moves them into a “speech bubble” where the users can form and play sentences. See a demo.
The U-M Center for Entrepreneurship has selected Jacob and his team to present their product to Michigan alumni in the San Francisco area; they will also be visiting offices of Facebook, Google, Twitter and Tapjoy.
A free version of the app is available at the iTunes App Store.Explore posts in the same categories: Entrepreneurs, Students comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
