This sounds great - and I'm looking ahead to the day that HTML supports a touch screen box commany with haptic feedback for the blind (and the overworked computer professional). Not only can this be used to confirm button presses, it can also be used to locate the button on a touchscreen quickly by feel rather than by sight. I'm guessing that the first meaningful applications will be in enhancing the machine-user interface and that the ability to have textured graphics and more interactive games will be an interesting bonus.
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.
