While we read about the gender gap in technology almost every day, it’s worth championing a sector that seems to have a strong showing of talented women in tech – the wearables industry. Women have an extensive history in the wearables field: There’s Leah Buechley, inventor of the Lily Pad Arduino; academics like Dr. Rosalind Picard, founder, […]
As a leading edge chip manufacturer, MediaTek has been helping companies and developers get to market for almost two decades. Philip Handschin is a technical account manager, which sounds a little boring until you realize he gets to travel the world helping their community of developers use their Hardware and Software Development Kits. He crosses […]
“If one crappy robot and another crappy robot fought each other — what would happen?” In an era where robots like Nao, Pepper, Sophia and Atlas manage to amaze us with their respective abilities to walk, learn, communicate in different languages, recognize different people and partake in heavy lifting, another suite of robots is hard at […]
myDevices and Arduino announced on Tuesday a partnership that connects Cayenne, a drag-and-drop Internet of Things (IoT) project builder, with Arduino’s large open-source hardware developer boards. Developers are now able to use Cayenne to visualize sensor data and control components of the Arduino board. myDevices claims the partnership will expedite IoT deployments, because its project […]
The Internet of Things is a concept very different from the Internet of yesterday. While technically it’s the same Internet, the processes and functionality of the connected devices that exist in this category are anything but typical. Many of them have no screens, some have multiple purposes and many only serve to provide data on […]
Travelling in an unfamiliar city has never been easier with mapping applications like Google Maps and Apple Maps storing hundreds of thousands of restaurants, places to see, and activity centers for tourists to check out while on holiday. However, the experience of pulling out your phone every two minutes to check you are still going […]
Arduino has announced two new developer boards aimed at the Internet of Things (IoT) community, called the Primo and Otto. It comes just one month after the MKR1000 was announced worldwide. The Primo is Arduino’s first IoT computing board to feature all the traditional wireless standards, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth low-energy, near-field communications (NFC), and […]
Open source is increasingly standard operating procedure in software, but nowhere is this more true than Internet of Things development. According to a new VisionMobile survey of 3,700 IoT developers, 91% of respondents use open source software in at least one area of their software stack. This is good news for IoT because only open source promises […]
Intel is taking another step into the Internet of Things (IoT) world with the launch of the inexpensive Quark Microcontroller Developer Kit D2000. At the competitive price of $15, the Quark board is cheaper than the MKR1000 developer board Arduino recently launched. That might give it an edge with customers uninterested in the ARM vs […]
Mark Burnett, Emmy winner and producer of reality TV juggernauts like Shark Tank and Survivor, has teamed up with tech giant Intel and the TBS cable network to launch America’s Greatest Makers – a new reality competition series featuring IoT inventors going head-to-head. Judging roster includes Emmy-nominated actress Mayim Bialik – holder of a PhD in […]
To commemorate Arduino Day 2016, the foundation has announced the Arduino MKR1000 and Genuino MKR1000 developer boards are available for Internet of Things (IoT) developers. The developer board specifications are identical, but the foundation uses the Genuino name outside of the United States. The board has three main blocks, which feature a SAM D21 Cortex-M0+ […]
