PTI: Engineers build 5G-capable stretchable electronics for the Internet of Things

The newlw developed integrated circuitry can be stretched without affaecting its performance, perfect for wearable electronics that will be a large part of the IoT revolution. Scientists have created the world's fastest stretchable, wearable integrated circuits, an advance that could drive the Internet of Things and lead to a much more connected, high-speed wireless planet.

Ahmad Fuad: Training in the age of Internet of Things

Digital revolution has started haunting entire business world. It is proving to be a serious threat to the traditional ways of running a business.

Digitalization has thoroughly challenged old and even successful models that have been integral part of the business for many years. It is changing almost everything that includes systems,devices, means of communication, cultures, interpretation of market research and even emotions. Training and development industry, especially in corporate sector is facing the very challenge and anticipating it as the biggest one in near future.

Narbeh Derhacobian: One chip to rule them all? The Internet of Things and the next great era of hardware

It’s been almost 10 years since Apple unveiled the iPhone. Since that day, the smartphone has been the overwhelming driver of innovation in the technology industry. Cameras, Wi-Fi, batteries, touch sensors, baseband processors and memory chips — in less than a decade, these components have made stunning advances to keep up with consumer demand to have sleeker, more powerful devices every year.

Arthur Dominic Villasanta: DARPA Wants to Weaponize the Internet of Things to Save U.S.

The ultimate weapon? It's the Internet of Things (IoT) that will dominate our wireless future.

The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) wants to weaponize these innocuous connected things such as baby sensors, health trackers and your oven with the noble motive of making the U.S. less vulnerable to future attacks from these things directed by state-sponsored terrorists.

Ben Thompson: Ledbury CEO: Workshops, not factories, are US manufacturing's future

When pundits speak of bringing back manufacturing jobs to the U.S., many people think of big factories with bustling assembly lines, but that might not be the right image to conjure up.

Luxury men's retailer Ledbury's business model, which targets small U.S. workshops to make high-quality goods, may be a more accurate image, the company's founders said.

Jake Rozmaryn: The sweep of the Internet of Things, garbage cans and all

Who could imagine being wowed by a garbage can? In our age of technological whiz-bang, not much floors us anymore. But I confess, I couldn’t stop thinking about the lowly garbage can.

Embedded with smart sensors, it alerts city workers when it’s ready to be emptied, which slashes fuel costs and avoids unnecessary garbage pickups. That may not sound so impressive — at least compared to driverless cars or sending regular folk into space — but when the dumbest of items gains intelligence, we need to pay attention.

Caroline Tiger: Uh, so, what exactly is the Internet of Things?

Now might be a good time to come clean if you don’t totally understand what the Internet of Things (IoT) means. Turns out it’s nearly impossible to define. That’s what two experts said at this week’s Philly IoT Meetup, which brought around 75 people to product firm Bresslergroup’s offices at 12th and Arch. But Rick Bullotta, former CTO of ThingWorx, gave it a shot anyway.

Adele Peters: The "Internet Of Things Bank" Gives You An Electric Shock When You Overspend

Intelligent Environments created a platform to link bank or credit card accounts to the Pavlok, an electroshock wristband.</p><p>If people don't want a shock, the Pavlok wristband can also be programmed to buzz or even beep.</p><p>Warnings could also be tied to a particular location--if, for example, you want to start making coffee at home or work and get a reminder every time you go to Starbucks.</p>

Evangelos Alepochoritis: The power of the Industrial internet of Things. There is no doubt that it is bringing real value to the process industries

There is no doubt that the next generation of manufacturing will be driven by connectivity on a scale that would have been difficult to imagine only a few years ago.

Today’s manufacturers are beginning to leverage the industrial internet of things (IIoT) by embedding physical objects with the capacity to communicate with and sense the world around them. This is opening up new possibilities for safety, productivity, organisational responsiveness and, ultimately, profitability.

PTI: Scientists develop hybrid nanogenerator to power the Internet of Things (dna webdesk)

The device integrates woth a solar cell and a nanogenerator to harness wind energy, that could theoretically be used to sustain the millions of devices incoming as part of the IoT revolution.

In a first, scientists have integrated a solar cell and a nanogenerator that can convert wind energy into electricity in a single device that may power the 'Internet of Things'.

Keith Collins: The future of software depends on a jury’s ability to understand this question

Billions of dollars and the future of software development may depend on the ability of 10 jurors to understand and answer the following question, which is central to Oracle’s ongoing copyright case against Google:

Do “declarations of the API [application programming interface] elements in the Android class library source code and object code that implements the 37 [Java] API packages” violate a copyright held by Oracle?
