The cost structure was such that that to make it affordable, the volumes had to be in the 300 - 500 range. That ended up making the goal too high. We've got $4,000 pleged, so that's something of an endorsement, but right not the numbers just don't add up right.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
