Panasonic's HomeTeam designed to bring long distance families together

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Panasonic looks for a Home Team win.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     We’re used to seeing Panasonic’s name on a wide variety of consumer electronics products.   Everything from digital cameras to shavers.   This time, the company is up to something a little different.  HomeTeam is a service designed to connect families via the Web and apps for tablets.  And the main focus is on enabling you to read with or play with children…long distance.  Health and Wellness solutions President Steve Safier…

“What we’ve done is we have loaded books and loaded popular games onto software so that when the book appears on my tablet, and I turn the page, that very same book and page appears on the child’s tablet.  So it’s a much more seamless experience.”

Than using Skype of Facetime for instance.   Panasonic offers a free trial of HomeTeam.   The regular price is 8.99 a month or 89.99 a year.   ou can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
