Zazu

Hatched from a Startup Weekend in Boston with the inspiration of building Jarvis from Ironman, The Zazu Mornings application combined features of the familiar bed side alarm clock and voice technology to present users with personal information that helped them navigate their day. The technology integrated a user’s calendars, local weather, deals, personalized news, and custom content and presented it through a hands-free spoken audio stream or hands-on interactive experience. Zazu was built for Android, iPhone & Android TV
