Bracknell, UK, 30 October 2012 - Diversified technology company 3M is showcasing its new range of Fingerprint Fading and Anti-glare Screen Protectors for the Apple iPad on stand G28 at The Gadget Show Live Christmas Show, 30 November to 2 December 2012 at London ExCeL. Visitors will have the chance to win new products, receive exclusive online discounts via a virtual store and interact with live product demonstrations in-action, showing how they combat every-day display issues including glare, reflections, and annoying finger prints, without compromising functionality.

Visitors to the stand can use their smartphone or tablet to scan the QR code shop window, gaining access to the 3M Select virtual store: http://www.3mselect.co.uk/, and receive special discounted prices for on-the-spot purchases that can be delivered direct to your home, so no need to carry your purchases around the show all day, surely the perfect way to finish off your Christmas shopping! There will also be competitions and giveaways announced on the stand using Facebook and Twitter.

"At this year's Gadget Show Live Christmas we're not only showing live demos of our latest products on the stand, but also offering visitors the chance to win them and receive exclusive discounts using their smart device," said Rob Green, Marketing Co-ordinator, 3M Mobile Interactive Solutions Division. "We know people treasure their iPads and enjoy using them for both pleasure and work, and want to be able to pick them up and use straight away. With our new screen protection technologies, iPad users no longer need tolerate annoying reflections and glare on the screen, or have to clean on-screen finger prints left behind by family members or friends."

The new range of screen protection films from 3M's Mobile Interactive Solutions Division (MISD) consists of two product lines: one delivers vivid viewing clarity and reduced front surface reflection on the screen; the other is designed to fade fingerprints away for a cleaner, newer-for-longer looking screen that requires less cleaning.

The 3M Natural View Fingerprint Fading Screen Protector and Back Skin for the Apple iPad 2 and New iPad 3rd Gen has an ultra-clear glossy surface designed to fight fingerprints by fading them away, disappearing over time. The durable film keeps the screen in a pristine, 'just like new' condition, protecting from scratches and damage that can be caused by every-day use, especially when the iPad is used for keeping the children entertained watching cartoons, or in the kitchen for on-screen recipes.

The 3M Natural View Anti-Glare Screen Protector for Apple iPad 2 / iPad 3rd Gen enhances the viewing experience with a matte screen that reduces glare and mirror-like reflections to improve the screen readability in ambient light, whilst maintaining a high level of image quality. The smooth surface means fingers won't stick even when damp and is fingerprint resistant.

Both screen protectors create a smooth-touch, easy-glide surface protecting against daily damage with a stay clean edge technology for crystal clear image clarity. The innovative alignment application strip and residue-free adhesive makes it simple to apply in minutes, and it is easily removed with no residue left on the screen. Highly durable, they provide protection from scratches and scuffs, without interfering with the functionality of the touch screen or the resolution of the display.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
