Jason Gui is the creator of Vigo, a smart headset to track drowsiness. Originally started as a project at the University of Pennsylvania, Vigo has raised venture funding to commercialize the technology. Vigo’s patented technology tracks over a dozen parameters in the wearer's eyes and head motion for signs of drowsiness, and provides a stimulation when they are dozing off. Vigo helps drivers stay alert at the wheel to reduce accidents caused by fatigue, and is currently in use in over 40 countries. The company also launched Vue, a pair of bone conduction smart glasses, which raised $2.2 million on Kickstarter, becoming a top selling smart glasses brand.
