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. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
