This is an early prototype, some might say "Take 1" of what later was called the Thablet, a handheld gizmo with a colossal screen which combined phone features with home theater capability. The fan which cooled the processor also served as a hot-air popcorn popper.
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.
