Thank you for showing past, now and future of SmartWatch. As a Japanese it is sad that Japanese companies (like Casio, Sony, Sharp...) are at leading edge in 20 years ago, but far behind US, Korea and China now. We can still make (and do) "good" product, but not really exciting, cutting edge, crazy idea comes from Japanese company in these days.
I used to love wearing a watch as man jewlery and had a few Casio models. Now even though its clunkier, I don't mind checking time on the iPhone strapped to my belt. It's some mix of fashion and utility for me.
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.
