The All Stars Project Inspires Hip-Hop Artist Lecrae

MAYER 360 Logo

Two-Time Grammy® Winner Mentors Inner City Youth at National Non-Profit Dedicated to Transforming Lives Through the Developmental Power of Performance.

Hip-Hop Artist, Lecrae

New York, NY, USA (July 14, 2015) — Grammy® Award-winning hip-hop artist Lecrae‘s visit to the 42nd Street headquarters of the All Stars Project last year – to meet and mentor the inner city young people engaged in the organization – turned into so much more than expected. The All Stars Project has released a video of Lecrae’s inspiring visit. Produced by Diane Mayer in partnership with MTV, the video can be viewed at: https://youtu.be/cG5UjPW04N4.

A privately funded national nonprofit organization founded in 1981, the All Stars Project transforms the lives of youth and poor communities using the developmental power of performance, in partnership with caring adults. The All Stars Project involves over 10,000 young people every year in its afterschool programs in six cities across the country.

In a conversation facilitated by Antoine Joyce, Senior Program Manager/Development Officer for the All Stars Project Dallas, Lecrae shared that growing up he turned to hip-hop to find purpose, but instead found a lifestyle that included gang life, drugs and alcohol. After turning his own life around, he is now known for his music and outreach to inner-city youth. Lecrae has sold over two million albums, and his latest, Anomaly, debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 and across several other sales charts as well.

The All Stars youth in attendance then introduced themselves to Lecrae and spoke about their personal experiences and hardships growing up. They shared how life-changing their involvement in the All Stars Project has been, and let Lecrae know that his music supported their choice to be positive and move forward.

Afterward, Lecrae said of his participation, “I was brought out to inspire, but left inspired.”

KastKing® Presents New Kayak Fishing Rod

Eposeidon Logo

More back bone and high performance are key features in a new Kayak Rod from KastKing®.

KastKing® HD Phantom Kayak Rod

Garden City, Long Island, NY (July 10, 2015) — Today, KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc. based in Garden City, Long Island, NY announced the addition of a new kayak fishing rod, the KastKing® HD Phantom Kayak Rod. It will debut at ICAST in Orlando Florida on July 15, 2015.

KastKing’s® new versions HD Phantom Kayak Rods were derived from technology and development of Eposeidon’s highly successful patent-pending KastKing® Phantom Kayak Rods. KastKing® HD Phantom Kayak Rods features include heavy power, fast action, 7’ length, and are manufactured for 15 – 40 lb. line, 1 oz. – 4 oz. lure weight. Phantom Heavy Power Kayak rods come in casting and spinning models. They have AAA cork handles, rod leash rings, and a fish measurer on the backbone of the rod.

KastKing’s® HD Phantom Kayak Rods have a unique Micro Polish finish that eliminates sanding the rod blank resulting in 10% more strength than other rods. There is no need for paint, which adds weight and insulates the guide foot from the blank reducing sensitivity. KastKing® fishing rods are made with the finest materials available. Special design, durable 24-ton, high-grade, tightly woven carbon fiber sheets creates the foundation of every KastKing’s® HD Phantom Kayak Rod blank. The extra tightness of the weave results in more backbone, farther casting, consistent action, and more power. To enable more accurate casts KastKing® fishing rods are checked for straightness with infrared lasers.

“As with our new inshore rods, KastKing® is responding to requests for a high performance kayak rod with more load capability to target muskie, bull reds, big striped bass, small sharks and other large species,” says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon.

The rods were designed with input from angler consultants on Team Eposeidon, most notably Team Eposeidon member Elias Vaisberg who qualified twice for the Hobie International Fishing Challenge by winning the Jamaica Bay Classic with Grand Slam finishes two years in a row.

Spinning and Casting models of the KastKing HD Phantom Kayak Rod carry a MSRP of $106.98. Both will retail through http://www.eposeidon.com for $86.98.

Peratech’s Pressure Sensitive QTC® Technology Enables New Smartphone Case To Incorporate Game Controller Joysticks

Peratech Logo

World’s first smartphone case with rear action joysticks.

Flitchio Smartphone Case With Built-In Game Controller

Richmond, North Yorks, England (July 10, 2015) — Peratech, providers of pressure-based enabling technologies for innovating next generation human-machine interfaces, has announced that its Quantum Tunnelling Composite® pressure-sensitive sensors have been used in the new Flitchio™ smartphone case with built-in game controller. Instead of having control interfaces on the screen that obscure the screen area used for gaming, Flitchio has two shoulder buttons and two ultrathin joysticks on the back surface of the case.

Dr. Amir Shadmand, CEO and Co-Founder of SUPENTA

Dr. Amir Shadmand, CEO and Co-Founder of SUPENTA, makers of Flitchio, explained, “Peratech enabled us to solve our challenges of making the joysticks sensitive, accurate and thin so that they fitted into a normal thickness smartphone case. In addition, QTC technology is extremely efficient — using hardly any current, so we can power our system wirelessly just with the NFC antennas in the smartphone. Peratech worked closely with us to help with sensor design and integration. The result is a world’s first and a real game changer.”

Jon Stark, Peratech’s CEO, added, “QTC technology has been used to provide touch sensitivity for mobile phones before but this is the first time that someone has created a QTC-based product that uses the back of a device. SUPENTA did a great job designing a control in which your fingers fall naturally onto the joysticks. It takes only a few moments to become used to using fingers on the back of the case to control the action. It’s a totally intuitive device for natural hand-eye coordination and a perfect example of QTC technology enabling user experience innovations.”

Flitchio Rear Showing Joysticks

Flitchio simply snaps onto the phone and links in moments by NFC so that it can be used to play dozens of popular games, to pilot drones, to take a selfie with the back of the phone, to be a remote for Smart TVs, and to drive many more applications using a software development kit. The case is initially built for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but SUPENTA intends to make cases for other smartphones in the future. Prices will start from £39 including VAT with availability in early 2016.

Said Shadmand, “We chose Peratech QTC technology because it’s effectively a sensitive, consistent solid-state force sensor that will give us the operational life we need in the demanding world of mobile gaming.”

About Peratech
Peratech Holdco Ltd. is a privately held company with 20 employees based in Richmond, North Yorkshire. It is currently working with a number of key technology clients who are implementing QTC® sensing technology within their own products.

KastKing® Rolls Out Advanced Inshore Fishing Rods

Eposeidon Logo

KastKing® fishing rod department used technology, research, and development to manufacture its new series of high power, affordable inshore rods named KastKing® Perigee Inshore Rods.

KastKing Perigee Inshore Rods

Garden City, Long Island, NY (July 9, 2015) — Today, KastKing® a division of Eposeidon, Inc. based in Garden City, Long Island, NY announced a new fishing rod series aimed at the inshore saltwater and big game freshwater markets.

KastKing’s® Perigee Inshore Fishing Rod is based on the technology of their extremely successful KastKing® Perigee fishing rods for the freshwater bass market, which retail in the $70 – $80 range. The new 7′, 6 rods will retain the Perigee name for marketing purposes. The dynamic new rods are available in casting and spinning models, in medium-heavy and heavy power.

“We consulted with our development team, many professional charter captains, and guides in producing this rod,” says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon. “Saltwater anglers began using our freshwater bass series rods and multipurpose rods. They were delighted. Those who target big striped bass, bull redfish, and other large fish kept asking for a heavy power rod that was light and could perform as well as the medium-heavy power rods we primarily developed for the freshwater market. We also had requests from those going after big catfish and muskies. We met the demand for a high quality, heavy power rod that includes all of the high-tech features of our freshwater series.”

KastKing® Perigee Inshore Rods have 9 guides plus the tip guide, a unique Micro Polish finish that eliminates sanding the rod blank resulting in 10% more strength than other rods. There is no need for paint, which adds weight and insulates the guide foot from the blank reducing sensitivity. KastKing® fishing rods are made with the finest materials available. Special design, durable 24-ton, high-grade, tightly woven carbon fiber sheets creates the foundation of every KastKing® Inshore rod blank. The extra tightness of the weave results in more backbone, farther casting, consistent action, and more power. To enable more accurate casts KastKing® fishing rods are checked for straightness with infrared lasers. KastKing’s® Perigee Inshore Rods are equipped with EVA hand grips and foregrips.

“The company will introduce the prototypes of all KastKing’s® Perigee Inshore Fishing Rod models at ICAST (International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades) taking place in Orlando, Florida July 15-17, 2015,” says Eposeidon CEO, Tate Cui. “Production of these extraordinary rods will begin shortly thereafter. KastKing® Perigee Inshore rods will hit the market late in the third quarter or early fourth quarter of 2015.”
