Sony's tablet is questionable as a market entry to displace the leaders, but it has an interesting approach: http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4218126/Adobe-and-Sony-launch-competition-to-develop-apps-for-new-tablets
No, I didn't know that, but I'll take your word for it. You're right, it seems to detract from the entire "competition" that it's entirely done on paper. On the other hand, think of the logistical problems of judging real-world objects and software.
I always find Sony's approach to consumer devices refreshing. This updated review, which we don't endorse, has some markedly interesting points: http://www.pcworld.com/article/239253/sony_tablet_s_review_a_tablet_that_goes_beyond_basics.html
The Lytro Light Field camera is amazing. I will buy it when it gets cheaper, since presently I am unemployed.
Have the folks at Lytro demo'd the camera to Law enforcement? This could become the standard camera for crime scene investigation.
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.
