BOLD DESIGN: The Misfit Shine is an elegant all-metal disc with a beautiful halo of lights. Just place it on an iPhone and it syncs, even in airplane mode. No buttons, no cables, no Bluetooth pairing, no recharging.

SMART: More than just step-counting - the Misfit Shine tracks cycling and swimming too so get more credit where credit is due. Tap to see progress towards your daily activity goal. Set personalized goals, visualize data, and get insights on how you're doing.

WEARABLE: Only slightly larger than a quarter, the Misfit Shine can be worn just about anywhere, even when wearing next to nothing. On your wrist, shoe, ankle, bra, hip, as a broach, wherever you want.

PRECIOUS: The Misfit Shine was made to last a lifetime and designed to complement any fashion statement. Carved out of a solid block of aircraft-grade aluminum, it is super strong and waterproof.

The Misfit Shine comes with a clasp so you can easily wear it, and will retail in the spring of 2013 for $99; early adopters' units will ship in March. A sports wristband will retail at $19 and a stylish leather band for $49. An experimental alpha version of the Misfit Shine App is available in the iTunes App Store, with new builds coming every three weeks.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
