How about using a MEMs Gyro based Stylus for combined gesture and touch based inputs for smartphones ?
The stylus would be connected to the cell phone and get its power and data through this connection.
It can have a button which when pressed activates gesture mode and otherwise it defaults to a normal stylus ?
The stylus could be used very effectively for fast data entry and gesture based mode could be used for zoom in / out, forward and back buttons functions on the browser, click and double click ?
It would be built on the lines of the Nintendo Wii remote.
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. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
