This month, we focus on technology for CUNY TV’s show highlighting the best and brightest of the CUNY system. We'll speak with an adjunct from City Tech, Cory Einbinder, who explains to us what his 'video puppet' does. We visit with the Older Adults Technology Services, a service run by a City College graduate, that aims to bring seniors up to speed on new devices like iPads. Reporter Andrew Falzon visits the media lab at MacCauley Honors College, initiated by Albie Hecht, who created Spike TV, among other ventures. We'll hear about new advances in hearing aids; and we'll see how Lev Manovich, a new addition to the Graduate Center, is using Instagram to tell us about cultural patterns in cities with his ImagePlot software.
