The Web of Things is a community of developers, researchers, and designers exploring the future of the physical Web. We want to leverage Web standards to interconnect all types of embedded devices (sensors, mobile phones, etc) to make them easier to use and integrate in classic Web applications. WoT aims to build a future Web of devices that is truly open, flexible, and scalable, and we believe Web standards are the best way to do it.
Impressive design & prototyping process. An excellent example of a concrete "how can we improve this" which reminds me of how nest reinvented the thermostat. Very different from existing "Smart Fridge" Internet of Things scenario, "We make smart fridges because we can".
CubeSensors are packed with seven powerful sensors that help you live better. Very cool design & packaging, but interestingly the cubes are connected to a base-station using USB cables (really??) and the base-station is networked using Ethernet (really really??). Anyway, sexy design.
"Skynet - an open platform for instant messaging to power the internet of things". Other than the creepy-sounding name, it feels like a modern version of the now-defunct watercoolr project from 5 years ago (which was pretty awesome at that time). I like this one - it's neat & node.js+websockets based, so a kewl thing to try.
Arm has just announced that they're working with ST on enabling STM32 microcontrollers in mbed! Interesting, as it's pretty powerful and low-power. We'll finally be able to upgrade our office coffee machine (seriously, it's controlled by an mbed!!)
