We provide a service similar to KAYAK where we link to curated content that matches the searcher's request, no matter where it lives. Netflix won't link to Amazon and vice versa but users don't care where the content is. They want to find it easily and start viewing it. They want reliable content so they are not showing inappropriate movies to children. FlixRemix turns entertainment into education, leveraging Shazam-like experience, Text-To-Speech, and the Second Screen. Nobody is doing this.

Shazam is the technology behind music matching, and is similar to what we are doing. While they just detect what song is playing and try to sell you the album and tickets for that artist, we are detecting what movie you are watching and what scene. Based on that, FlixRemix will show (and speak) lessons based on that scene! By decoupling the video from the lessons, we can offer multiple FlixRemixes for one movie, such as commentary from Bill Nye or Neil deGrasse Tyson or in different languages.

The timing is right. Services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO NOW and HBO GO and others make it easier than ever for educators to access media. They just need help finding the right content. Audio Fingerprinting technology (like Shazam) could not have existed a few years ago, but powerful mobile devices now make it practical. Voice Recognition and Text-To-Speech, like Apple's Siri, is a reality and not science fiction. Low-cost mobile devices and high adoption in schools make FlixRemix possible.
