Once the darling of the eReader community, E Ink has had to scramble to find new markets in a post-iPad world where everybody wants backlit color on their eReader even if it means recharging their battery everyday.

One I am surprised is not on their list yet is shelf labels, where stock and pricing changes can be made without there being any need for wiring or a battery to maintain the display.
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.
