Pillow talk

Pillow Talk Image_640Pillow talk is a project by Joanna Montgomery which aims to connect long distance lovers. Each person has a pillow for their bed and a ring sensor which they wear while they sleep

The sensors wirelessly communicate with the other persons pillow, when the other person goes to bed the pillow glows making a connection between lovers that may be far away but they are still together

IOT/LDN Meet up – 19

Screen shot 2013-02-18 at 01.09.25So it seems I was on the waiting list to go to IOT/LDN meet up but didn’t manage to get a place. I however have RSVP’d for a place on the 19th meet up happening on March 19th. I look forward to seeing what I will learn from this meet up and hopefully meet like minded people at this event

IOT / LDN – Meet up

Screen shot 2013-02-18 at 01.09.25It seems there is a group on Meetup where lovers of the IoT (Internet of things) arrange chances to meet up with each other at scheduled events. One of which is happening on 19th Feb. I have been put on the RSVP list and would love to go even if the people their are most likely to be way above my level it would be interesting to gain some research. More on that later

iTemp

Oh how iLove when people copy the iStyle of branding created by Apple in non Apple scenarios

That aside I got an email recently from someone which I thought was interesting from a member of the IOT (Internet Of Things) meetup group
