Is this watch available for sale? I am thinking one day we just have to think and thought can be sensed and converted to an action.

Yes, this has been available in the market for some time now. 

I actually find it fascinating...after all, people have appetite for a watch which looks like a watch; but not so much for "wearables" which try to be a smartphone/watch on a wrist.

Changes in the Japanese electronics industry

Both subtle and big changes were palatable at ET2013 show this year -- among Japanese vendors' booths.

They are more open and willing to pitch solutions they had not developed themselves. It almost looks like they have finally realized that they don't have to invent everything before they go to the market!

yeah, that is a peculiar observation. I wonder if it just has to do with familiarity?

@caleb, exactly. Familiarity is everything when it comes to consumers' purchasing decision -- unless whatever the thing is phenomenally convenient or useful. Wearable devices today are neither.

Has anyone used Ruby, object-oriented programming language (open sourced)? Now that 'mruby' for embedded is coming up, as shown in this slideshow, I'd like to get your feedback.

Junko,

Most students use python for programming Raspberry Pi. However, I will start asking the question as I visit universities on an almost weekly basis. I am sure someone is using mruby.

Most Interesting Aspect

I think the most useful and interesting aspect of this show was all of the energy harvesting devices. These can be used in any number of applications.

@Junko

I don't know mruby specifically, there were plenty of attempts to get scripting languages for microcontrollers.they largely failed because they need more memory, they really slow the code , they dont support real time code, and the general conservativeness of developers.on that note , even even inventor of Ruby thinks most embedded code will be in c/c++ not mruby.

on the other hand spansion can create microcontrollers in 40nm ,which might change the game.and them pushing mruby could certainly help.

and there is the new "micro python" which claim to solved the speed and real-time issue.we'll see after it's kickstarter ends.

@Junko,

Another option regarding mruby: ruby is popular in japan(for general programming). Maybe spansion want to improve prototyping of embedded systems in japan, and grow the maker community there. It makes sense since japanese companies buy more japanese micro's.

BTW: how's the maker community in japan?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

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.
