AppDate: CES goes App mad

In this bumper AppDate CES 2021 special, SEAN BACHER highlights ten of the apps that vied for attention during the world’s biggest tech expo.




NuraLogix’s Anura is an AI-based app that  promises contactless health tracking, including blood pressure measurements, only using a smartphone.

It also measures other physical, physiological and psychological indexes, including heart rate, stress levels, BMI, and cardiovascular disease risks with medical-grade accuracy (based on research and clinical studies).

This contactless measurement is made possible through Transdermal Optical Imaging (TOI) technology, with the use of a smartphone’s video camera.

NuraLogix claims its TOI is able to use light and the translucency of human skin to capture changes in blood flow. Using machine learning algorithms, it extracts facial blood flow information from the recording to model and detects the desired psychological, physical and physiological indices.

Captured data is then displayed on the app, where it can be saved for future comparison.

For personal use, Anura can be downloaded for free on iOS and Android devices. For commercial use, Anura offers a variety of solutions.

Platform: Android and iOS

Expect to pay: A free download

VoiceTube gets AI

Launched in 2013, VoiceTube claimed to create the biggest English language learning platform in Asia, with over four million registered users. Users can not only find English videos with subtitles but can also engage in a specially designed learning system for targeting learners. 

VoiceTube uses a guided learning method, which hopes to make the language learning process more efficient by starting with input, imitation and then output. 

The app claims to offer authentic English keyword selections, continued with repeated practice to improve on language comprehension, followed by interactive practices with corrections to achieve the users’ English learning goals.

How it works

On top of the learning method model, VoiceTube has created two functions to guide its users, including a dedicated editorial team and featured videos.

Through “fill in the blank” practices, VoiceTube creates repeated listening opportunities to help memorise vocabulary. Throughout the learning process users are able to collect achievement points by completing the designated tasks. 

The latest edition includes artificial intelligence data analysis, which claims to work with VoiceTube’s video example sentences. Users are not only able to strengthen their memory on the vocabularies they have learned but also to extend their knowledge through technology generated vocabularies for a broader learning experience. 

In order for users to navigate to their preferred content videos are categorised in various channels and levels, such as CNN, TOEIC, or TOEFL exams. VoiceTube also delivers three types of products targeting various levels of language learners: VoiceTube, VoiceTube Hero and VoiceTube Vclass. 

Platform: Android, iOS and a computer with an up to date internet browser

Expect to pay: A free download
