Dov Bechhofer Explains the Rise of AR/VR and the Potential These Technologies Have for Our Future

Dov Bechhofer

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 / — Dov Bechhofer is a computer engineer with an eye for trending tech topics and predictions on how technology can improve or impair our future. Here, he helps explain the rise in popularity of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), and their place in society’s future.

Screens have revolutionized our lives. First, there were television and theater screens that entertained the masses. Next came computers, which revolutionized every aspect of human life, from work to play and everything in between. Desktops gave way to laptops and tablets all before the smartphone took over in the early 2000s. Dov Bechhofer acknowledges that the first successful AR/VR technology in widespread use came about only because of advancements in smartphone technology.

“Manufacturing AR and VR components that perform as consumers expect them to is way more expensive than people realize, which is why it took so long for these products to become available to consumers,” says Dov Bechhofer.

He mentions that VR devices really only became popular around the time phone carriers retailed headsets alongside their phones for basic VR experiences in the last few years. Similarly, AR gaming (such as the international craze Pokemon Go!) introduced the world to technology’s ability to reconstruct our reality. From projecting cartoon creatures into environments through cell phone screens, people today can use AR technology to interact with their surroundings in new ways and make important purchasing decisions. For example, Wayfair furniture retailer allows app users to project furniture in their rooms and test how products look at home before ever purchasing.

Gaming was also the driving factor behind consumer VR use, with devices like the PlayStation VR headset and the Oculus Rift leading sales around the world––ultimately helping improve all VR tech. When consumers invest in VR gaming technology, they inevitably pay for further research to make products more capable and state-of-the-art.

“Companies like Sony who manufacture VR products want to keep their customers coming back in the future to buy newer and better technology,” says Dov Bechhofer. “They accomplish this by investing their returns in improved gadgets and software, improving the capability for all future VR technology in the process.”

Already, organizations utilize VR technology to educate and train people on specialized topics that benefit from immersion and practice. In one program, engineering students can interact with optics and lasers by building three-dimensional systems that respond in real-time. In the case of chemistry, VRs remove the need to purchase equipment and chemicals (saving millions of dollars and reducing the risk of harm in the process). AR can similarly be used in the future to help cut costs on physical products for a range of studies and career paths.

“VR tackles a lot of the typical restrictions to learning. Educators only need a computer, a VR device, and a savvy program to teach complicated subjects with ease,” says Dov Bechhofer. “If for nothing else than entertainment and education, AR and VR technology will prove to be an invaluable asset moving forward.”

Perks Group Continues to Deliver Savings Across the US After 30 Years of Service

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 / — Perks Group is known for offering savings across the country on almost anything a consumer can dream up, from traveling and luxuries to home necessities. Over the years, the Perks Group has built up a wide network of providers and improved offerings so PerksConnect users can easily access savings.

The Perks Group program helps its members save money on a range of products and services across the US through its easy-to-use platform. Perks is able to offer such a variety of deals because of a large (and fast-growing) network of companies they’ve built up during three decades of service.

The discounts on merchandise and services include brand name items and familiar companies that users know and trust. Besides luxurious purchases (such as savings on expensive electronics or airfare), Perks Group members also save on more essential purchases like grocery store items, gas, and dinner at local restaurants.

In the over 30 years that Perks Group has been active, they’ve built up a tremendous following of millions of members. When they began in 1988, the employer-sponsored savings program catered to companies with 1,000 or more employees. But today, the program reaches a vast number of businesses and companies in every state whose employees access daily savings.

Perks Group has grown to such heights that over 200,000 business locations across the U.S. today honor their discounts, making it one of the strongest and far-reaching discount programs in the country. The Perks Group adds new merchants into their network often, constantly improving their offerings with daily updates and deals.

Besides consistently adding new discounts to their program, the group keeps up with changes in technology to make their offerings even more accessible and easy to use. In 2011, Perks Group began offering their discounts through a mobile application called PerksConnect. The PerksConnect app is especially beneficial to traveling members as it allows discounts on the go. Members are able to journey through America and access local deals right from the convenience of their smartphones.

Because not everyone prefers to compile their savings in an app, Perks Group allows its members to access their discounts in several ways. Members can apply savings through an 800-number using a value code, by downloading and printing coupons, or by using instant savings when making purchases online through a provided link.

Besides deals for its members, the Perks Group program also offers opportunities for enlisting businesses to promote their own product or service in a giant network of retailers, businesses, and customers. New merchants are announced within the group after signing up, earning exposure in the process in addition to exclusive deals.

After 30 years, Perks Group proves to be a national leader in discounts with an impressive following and a wide circle of professional services and products. Entry to the group is beneficial to all parties involved and the list of advantages within the group continues to grow with each new year.

Lindsay Farrell, President and CEO, Open Door Family Medical Center

Federally Qualified Health Center Seeks to Address the Need for Affordable Dental Care

Oral health is a vital component of overall health in the community and we don’t want cost to be a barrier to care.”

— Lindsay Farrell, President and CEO, Open Door Family Medical Center

SAUGERTIES, NEW YORK, USA, January 17, 2019 / — Saugerties, NEW YORK – January 17, 2019 – Open Door Family Medical Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center focused on providing medical, dental and behavioral health care to patients regardless of insurance status or ability to pay will open a new dental facility at 16 West Bridge Street in Saugerties, on January 21. People of all ages will have access to affordable dental care with discounted prices offered on a sliding fee scale based on family size and household income.

The unmet need for dental services in Ulster and Greene Counties is significant. Currently there are only 61 dental providers per 100k residents, compared to the New York State average of 71 per 100k residents. According to the Oral Health Care Plan for New York State (NYS Department of Health), Ulster County is among the regions of the state not adequately served. Nationally, the number of Americans lacking dental insurance has reached “crisis proportions,” according to recent reports. Dental services at Open Door Saugerties are focused on preventative care so that oral health issues are addressed in children and adults of all ages, before they become acute.

Dental services in Saugerties will include dental exams and cleanings; digital X-rays; fillings; sealants and fluoride treatments; dentures; extractions; crowns and bridges; select root canals and periodontal treatments. Emergency care same-day appointments will also be available.

“We have a 40 year history of excellent, affordable Dental Care at Open Door and we are honored to be able to expand our footprint to Saugerties and offer more options to the community.” said Lindsay Farrell, President and CEO of Open Door Family Medical Center.

Studies indicate that people without dental insurance are significantly less likely to seek dental care, even as evidence mounts that oral health and overall health are closely linked. Farrell adds, “Oral health is a vital component of overall health in the community and we don’t want cost to be a barrier to care.”

Open Door has been caring for the Hudson Valley region since 1972, and offers comprehensive health care services at its six health centers, as well as seven School-Based Health Centers and two mobile dental vans.

Open Door Saugerties is now accepting new patients. Those wishing to schedule a dental appointment can call 845-ODFMC-4U (845-633-6248), or learn more at

Figueiredo Gel explains why Brazilian entrepreneurs are coming to the United States so often

The Brazilian businessman Figueiredo Gel

Figueiredo Gel is a Brazilian has transportation, textile and entertainment business. He explains why many Brazilian businessmen like him are coming to the US

There’s a large number of successful Brazilians who want to spend their money in the United States, in shopping, tourism and opening new enterprises in America, investing millions of dollars”

— Figueiredo Gel

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 / — The United States of America is known worldwide as the land of the opportunities, land of the free market and freedom of speech. Along the years, the so-called "paradise of the Capitalism" have attracted several businessmen from all around the globe who were looking for ideas, inspirations, opportunities and make money. It may explain why Brazilians are always visiting the United States, becoming the third place in the ranking of visitors, behind UK and Canada only.

According to Figueiredo Gel, a prominent businessman in Brazil in the field of transportation, textile and entertainment, the USA are very attractive to Brazilians, not only for those who are looking for business and make commercial deals, but also for tourism, vacations and good infrastructure: “The USA welcome us, Brazilians, with lots of possibilites, beautiful and safe cities, full infrastructure for leisure and business, magnificent hotels and competitive prices. Sometimes, it’s cheaper to come to New York City or Orlando than travel to some cities in the Northeastern region of Brazil, where I live. Here’s why Brazilians have come to experience being abroad for a while, having fun and also make business”, says.

Figueiredo Gel also says that in US, the shopping experience is taken to a new level: “It's very attractive for us, Brazilians, to go shopping in the US. Prices are competitive, compared to Brazil. Many people from Brazil go to the US attracted to the Outlets, Black Friday and sales. It’s a consumption oriented society, where the economy spins because Americans are always buying or selling something, it’s a dynamic market, who absorbers their own production, with a high domestic demand for products for consumption. That’s why prices are so competitive: low taxes, high demand, high production”.

Brazilians have come to US massively: in 2017, more than 1,6 million people from Brazil visited the US, although the dollar exchange rates in Brazil haven’t been favorable 1 USD is equal to 3,8 Brazilian Reais, approximately: "There’s a large number of successful Brazilians who want to spend their money in the United States, in shopping, tourism, leisure and opening new enterprises in America, investing millions of dollars", says.

Figueiredo Gel believes in better relations between Brazil and United States in a near future, what could increase the number of Brazilians visiting America, such as increasing the amount of money they invest here: “The new president elected in Brazil is looking for being closer to Donald Trump and the White House, and it may improve the relationship Brazil-United States. I hope so. Maybe, in a near future, I can think in expand one of my companies to US. Now it’s just a thought, but who knows, it depends on how things are going to be. In the present, my interest is visiting US to participate on congresses, go to iconic places, and having a good time with family and friends”.
