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?

Envisioning and Achieving the Internet of Things Potential in Barcelona, 14-16 June, 2016

By 2020, the amount of Internet-connected things will reach 50 billion, with $19 trillion in new profits and cost savings coming from IoT over the next decade, according to Cisco Systems.* These IoT devices will generate a staggering amount of data and stimulate tremendous business opportunities for companies across a range of market verticals. Now is the time for organizations to position themselves for success.

Ed Featherston: Internet of Things and Big Data – who owns all the data?

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems.

Chuck Martin: Predictive Consumer Experiences: The Promise Of The Internet Of Things

Knowing the customer in the moment is a key part of this, of course.

This means using a ton of data – in real time – to determine a person’s at-the-moment needs based on past activities.

But the path to personalization is hardly an easy one, since legacy systems and organizational structure often are in the way.

Martyn Williams: Arduino targets the Internet of Things with Primo board

Arduino, the Italian company that has powered the "maker" movement with a series of small computing boards that can be programmed and configured for different tasks, is introducing a board targeted at the so-called Internet of Things.

IoT encompasses the world of Internet-connected machinery and gadgets, many of which include sensors that remotely and autonomously send data.

The Primo features WiFi, Bluetooth low energy, NFC (near-field communications), and infrared built into the board. Previously, users had to connect add-on boards to get wireless networking.

Vain Srimaneekulroj: he Internet of Things Hack Day, a 12-hour marathon, saw the most innovative IT solutions this side of the globe

The words "everything is connected" has never been quite as literal or accurate as at the Amazon Web Services Internet of Things Hack Day, a 12-hour tech marathon that saw teams of skilled programmers...

Megan Crouse: The Ethics Of Design And The Internet Of Things

Imagine a smart city. Maybe you have a favorite city in mind that could manage its traffic in a better. Maybe the smart city you imagine is more futuristic, inspired by a video game. As real-world artificial intelligence becomes more heavily discussed (and, for some, closer to reality), people begin to ask: where is the “soul” in the machine when it comes to AI and the Internet of Things?

Bruce Harpham: How the Internet of Things improves air travel

Air travel has come a long way since the dark days of 2001. Security remains a concern, but the industry is paying increasing attention to innovation and customer service, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are playing a big role in efforts to make aviation more efficient and improve the passenger experience. As the costs of Internet-connected sensors and networking equipment continue to plummet, airlines, airport operators, airplane manufacturers and other travel and aviation industry suppliers are finding new ways to deploy and use IoT technologies.
