On first thought, agtech seems something of a contradiction. Agriculture involves growing crops. There’s no real world shortcut or fast track in that plants require planting in appropriate seasons with access to sun, water and soil nutrients and time to grow. By comparison, tech is about speed, rapid prototyping and timely deployment. But agtech is actually an evolving nexus between […]
A new deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) weather sensors may reduce the amount of unnecessary sanding of roads in Winchester, a city located in the southern coast of the UK. Hampshire County Council is working with a consortium of companies, including Amey, Mayflower, and Libelium, to reduce the amount of grit used in the […]
Bloomsky, an Internet of Things (IoT) startup, has announced two new devices to replace its original weather station, which was funded on Kickstarter in 2014. The next generation weather station includes the Sky2, a camera station that measures temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, UV exposure, and precipitation.

In a time of technological, medical and social advances, it’s hard to believe that 795 million people still go hungry around the world. When we learned from one new concept that data acquired through an IoT device could end this, our interest is piqued. Arable has created PulsePod, an IoT device capable of measuring more about the environment […]
Smart home company Netatmo announced earlier this week its own API for third-party Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Called Netatmo Connect, the API provides developers with the ability to connect to Netatmo’s products and create meaningful interactions. Connect has three major platforms – weather, smart home, and enterprise. Weather uses data from the Netatmo Weather […]
It’s a tech party and IoT is everywhere right now – loud, noisy and on the dance floor with a tie around its head. With so much energy in being devoted to tell us how, when, where, what we can connect to each other, the “why” may be getting a little blurry. So we want to […]
Guest author Kurt Collins is a developer evangelist for Built.io. I fell in love in 2012. With an app. And I’m not ashamed to admit it. I considered weather apps mere utilities, not something I should expend energy falling in love with. And then came Dark Sky by Forecast.io. The Dark Sky app is the […]
Cold can damage your gear as much as heat.
