Today, families stay connected to each other through smartphones and the internet. We post family photos and videos on social media websites, and our family members who live far away can see it. Grandparents who don't use the internet or a smartphone miss these moments. Hopen Family has a solution that will bring grandparents back into the center of the family.
Todd spoke with Nelly from Hopen Family at CES 2018. They created a smart device that bridges generations and distance. Plug the Hopen Family smart key into your grandparent's TV and you can send photos, videos and short messages to their TV.
Your grandparent can view and watch those photos and videos right from their TV. The content will scroll for them, or the grandparent can control the device with a TV remote - which they already know how to use. This makes it extremely easy for older family members, who are not internet savvy, to stay connected to the rest of their family.
The Hopen Family smart key can connect through Wi-Fi (or 3G in some countries). In the United States, it is priced at $79. Hopen Family offers three service plans: Discovery, Family, and Tribe. Visit their website for more details about each plan.
