RasPi IoT Development Kit: ThingBox- Postscapes ThingBox, from the folks at FunDaTrix (itself the consumer-oriented arm of French software company Digital Airways), is a free and open-source project designed to let casual coders easily create programs for the Internet of Things. All you need is a Raspberry Pi and a little bit of technical know-how (but much, much less than a professional developer). “The Thingbox provides a ready-to-use, ‘all in one’ IoT software package that can be used by non-developers,” explained Digital Airways co-founder Nicolas Silberzahn in an email to Postscapes. The software includes the MQTT protocol for letting devices talk to one another and an HTTP server platform built on Node.js -- though the target user shouldn’t need to know much, if anything, about that. wants to be the Amazon Web Services for the Internet of Things Mobile executive? VB is hosting our 5th annual Mobile Summit on February 23–24 at the scenic Cavallo Point Resort in Sausalito, CA. See if you qualify here. The current state of play with the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) offers a tantalizing glimpse into the future of ubiquitous computing, with web-enabled thermostats, self-driving cars, and even connected kettles creeping into our daily lives. But for all the cool applications we’re starting to see in the real world, there needs to be a force that enables it all.

Open Smart Cities I: Open Source Internet of Things - Open Smart Cities I: Open Source Internet of Th... "Open Smart Cities I" is the first post of a series of three that address, from the point of view of open source software, several technological areas related to Smart Cities, as the Internet of Things, Cloud, Big Data, or Smart Cities platform of services and applications. In this post, we make a brief review of the concept of Smart City, and introduce the topic of Internet of Things, wherein we explore the potential of open source technologies (software, hardware and standar). Read this post in Spanish Labs' Central Nervous System for the Earth project aims to build a planetwide sensing network: HP Labs Feature Article (November 2009) In the first commercial application of CeNSE technology, HP and Shell will build a wireless sensing system to acquire high-resolution seismic data. By vastly improving the quality of seismic imaging, the new system will allow Shell to more easily and cost-effectively explore difficult oil and gas reservoirs. The ground-breaking solution will be delivered by HP Enterprise Services, and will include HP’s high-performance sensing technology, a recent breakthrough from HP Labs and the company’s Imaging and Print Group.

lumn: You wait ages, then two bandwagons come at once First came the dotcom boom. And I did nothing, because I didn't learn how to write HTML quickly enough. Then came the mobile apps wave. And I missed that, because I couldn't find any porn actresses, I don't understand gambling and I discovered that hiring developers was like herding cats (my friend actually managed to get hold of some Ukrainian code writers, but he had to fly out to Harkova before he could get them to finish the project they'd been paid for) Duet:The Smart Bluetooth Tag That Watches Out For Your Phone 2nd Duet Delay Dear Duet backers,we hate to say this:delivery of early bird & main Duet backers will have to be delayed again. :( Please allow us to explain. #So why the delay, again???
