Can you think of a application for which you could use the Sekai Camera app? How about a treasure hunt game where "virtual" prizes are left in odd locations that you have to track down with mid-air clues you can only see with your Sekai Camera? How about a life-sized board game where only you can Sekai Camera users can see the pieces? Can you think of a application for which you could use the Sekai Camera app?
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.
