The Next Internet Frontier, Hans Scharler Talks About the Internet of Things on HuffPost Live

Some very big topics came up during the HuffPost Live show, “The Next Internet Frontier“, hosted by Alyona Minkovski. The guests included John Matherly Founder, Shodan, Dan Goodi, IT Security Editor at Ars Technica, Gleb Popov, Director of Technology & App Development, Primacy, and Hans Scharler, Co-Founder, ioBridge; Creator of ThingSpeak. The segment started with background about the Internet of Things and covered topics such as trends, security, and privacy.

I was invited to the panel to talk about what we are doing at ioBridge for the Internet of Things. It was an exhilarating experience and I was happy to share some of the ioBridge perspective on the Internet of Things, privacy and security.

Watch the full segment on HuffPost Live and you will see the first live Tweet created by a toaster (@mytoaster).

tiConf 2013 – Appcelerator Titanium Conference in Baltimore

Join Hans Scharler of ioBridge at tiConf, a mobile development conference based around JavaScript and Appcelerator Titanium, for his talked titled, “Driving the Internet of Things with Mobile Apps“.

The “Internet of Things” is a pervasive concept and movement where devices are being connected to the Internet and interaction with devices, social networks, and people are being built. In general things are sensors and actuators which include things such as temperature sensors, energy monitors, radiation detectors, lights, thermostats, and sprinklers.

In the talk “Driving the Internet of Things with Mobile Apps” by Hans Scharler, you will discover that mobile apps are leading the development of the Internet of Things. A mobile device becomes the user interface for a device and all of the supporting features. An app is the center of the entire experience and in fact the mobile device is an Internet of Things device. In order to keep up, apps need to be nimble and must support iOS and Android out-of-the-box. Hans will discuss how Titanium is being used by ioBridge to solve the common issues and patterns for the Internet of Things.

tiConf is open to developers interested in topics around mobile app development and Appcelerator Titanium, “an open, extensible development environment for creating beautiful native apps across different mobile devices and OSs including iOS, Android, Windows and BlackBerry, as well as hybrid and HTML5″. Learn more about the Internet of Things, mobile app development techniques, and the very latest developments with Appcelerator Titanium at this year’s tiConf.

Connected Appliances at the Connected World Conference

After a tweet from Peggy Smedley, we found a summary of the Connected World Conference on The iMums website – Reviews by mothers of little gadget lovers. In the review, they mention what they saw from ioBridge. Thanks for the note!

On the lighter side on the ioBridge stand I saw a toaster that tweets every time it makes a slice of toast and a coffee maker that you can text to make you a cup of coffee. ioBridge provides products that allow both professionals and hobbyists to connect pretty much anything to the internet.

Here’s a quick video of the @MyToaster exhibit at the Connected World Conference:

This concept of making things tweet lead us to build social and alerting functions for other devices such as washers and dryers at laundromats, and then lead us to create to our ThingSpeak platform specifically designed to allow devices to post status updates and share object data with other users.

And for fun, follow @MyToaster on Twitter to watch its toasting habits.

Visit the Interactive ioBridge Exhibit at the Connected World Conference, June 10-12

Connect World LogoFollowing the The Connected World M2M App Challenge, ioBridge will be exhibiting at the Connected World Conference from June 10-12 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. We have prepared an interactive booth displaying our connected products, some of our customer products, and the latest technology that we have to offer. Our booth theme is “Embedded / Cloud / Apps” – we have put together the most complete set of tools for OEMs and professionals to build connected products and services. We believe that connected products should be out-of-the-box and have seamless cloud connectivity. This is the focus of our research, patents, and technology offerings. But, we extend this to cloud by offering APIs and services that are common in many product situations. The last piece of the puzzle is Apps. Apps are how users connect with these products and services. We believe this should be the focus of OEMs development not the connectivity and scale challenges. We have tried to make a compelling solution among the embedded side, cloud connectivity and services, and applications.

Visit the ioBridge exhibit (booth #207) and check out the latest connected products and services! We hope to see you there. Follow hashtag #CWConf13 to see what’s happening via Twitter.

Developers are welcome to come and create connected apps based on a platform, combined with Open Data provided by agencies such as U.S. Dept. of Energy. Developers have access to platform developers and a chance to compete for cash, prizes, and IoT fame. The Top Prize is $3,000!


IoT Hackathon Sponsors

ioBridge will also be providing an exclusive hardware development kit that is integrated with our RealTime.io platform. This means that you will be able to make simple RESTful API calls and control physical objects and connect to external web services such as Twilio, Twitter, and ThingSpeak. The M2M Challenge Kit is based on the ioBridge Iota Wi-Fi module. This tiny embedded module contains everything you need to connect products to cloud services. The kit includes buttons, switches, LEDs, relays, light sensor, temperature sensor, and a buzzer. For more detail on ioBridge’s M2M Challenge Kit check out Connected World’s article.
