At $129.99 (according to their website) its price point seems to be a bit high for the toy market. Hopefully, some developers will come up with some more useful applications. My first thought was to stick a big "8" on it and have some fun at the local billiards hall.
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.
