@alex_m1: I blast all items that have a radio tag when bought, even if the shop appears to do so. I am paranoid, it goes with my dual personality of Crusty.
I just hate to give away my shopping habits for free.
It's bad enough with electronic shopping and all the exciting offers they think I will like because I bought a dog lead last week, I dont use the dog lead for dog type things, Max may like to comment on that?
I expect some day now the shop doorway will say out loud to people "Oh I say is that last years coat, it sure is wearing well, but what a shame it's not in this years shade and shape."
If the tags do not show up anymore, then the shops will have to think I have been shopping else, or at the second hand shonky shop and possibly make me a better offer to shop with them?
I recon the best way forward is a new city designed for these critters.
Lets call it Google City. This is the place to live? You wake up in your Google aware bed, leave for work in your Google transport machine, which of course anticipates your need for travel because your Google house has told the Google City of your need to go to the Google work centre. Have a wonderful Google day and return to your Google house for yet another Google sleep night.
Yes I am an old reactionry. I do not trust my clothes now until I give them a vicious bolt of EMP to burnt out the tags.
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.
