The wrist remains the key to the wearables market. I suppose one can wear anything on the wrist, and its a natural place for all kinds of gadgets and gizmos to go. It'll be a while before we see companies moving away from making devices for the wrist.
Well, I know I am being blunt here, but I don't think I am the only one who thinks selfies are for idiots.
When I heard Huawei executive talking Ad nauseam about what a great selfie photo the company's newest handset, Ascent Mate 2, can take at CES press conference, I rolled my eyes. First, I thought this might be Chinese thing, but then, quickly, I realized that this phenomenon is just about everywhere. It's global!
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.
