>> CONFERENCE - INTERNET OF EVERYTHING FOR REAL 2014
I attended the
Internet of Everything for real 2014 event in Stockholm,
Evothings AB, a
Swedish startup focusing on providing simple easy-to-use mobile application
development tools specifically for the IoT industry. In our booth we showcased
some cool low level embedded systems like the arduino, Raspberry pi and
Beagle Bone boards in addition to a few of the configurations that we have
put together for demo purposes (the Space Invaders and Frogger game arduino
setup was bait to get visitors).
A key element of our booth was to demonstrate the interaction between
iOS and android devices with some of the sensor and custom hardware using
BLE (low energy Bluetooth) and the simplicity of the Evothings studio for
writing hybrid HTML5 / native software to display IoT related information.
Our demos were able to communicate effortlessly with a Texas Instruments
sensor tag and our custom LED / variable resistor arduino board we assembled.
With most of the major players making land grabs within specific segments of
the IoT industry (sensor, collection, storage, analytics) it was surprisingly
positive to see the reaction of how Evothings, a Stockholm based startup, is
focusing on presentation of data and end-user interaction with IoT components
and making it easy for developers to build applications supporting multiple
devices and removing fragmentation concerns.
In addition to our efforts there was a number of high profile speakers from
the likes of Cisco, Tele2, Microsoft in addition to a number of startups
that demonstrated what they were doing within the IoE field - many
inspirational concepts that simply confirm that this industry is moving
quickly and becoming a important one in the years to come.
