But what if your fridge re-orders the wrong type of beer?

By reading your interview I think they are ahead of the game...in fact it is a rare example of real business...most of the rest like my fridge talking to me about refiling beer is just hype...Kris

@kris, yes, it WAS ahead of the time 10 years ago; but I think the IoT has caught up with it. My particular concern was if the IoT might have bypassed Dust, but apparently, that doesn't seem to be the case, judging from my conversation with Joy Weiss.

Smart Dust vision was ahead of the time...it will happen in 10 years ;-)...evolution of the start-company from a futuristic vision to a concerete application specific use in current industries makes a lot of sense
