Stick-N-Find is a coin-sized Bluetooth sticker that can be easily attached to any object and tracked through the companion mobile App. The sticker is tracked by through the App by turning a user's smartphone into a radar screen and tracking up to twenty stickers within a 100 ft. radius.

Stick-N-Find has already moved into production for a March 2013 delivery and will be showcased alongside MeterPlug at CES 2013 in January at booth #3731 at the iLounge Pavilion.

In result of Stick-N-Find's success, the developers have announced new features to the product. Stick-N-Find's features set will be expanded to include a temperature meter, giving users the temperature of the actual location of the sticker. The Stick-N-Find stickers will also come in five colors; black, white, blue, red and purple.

"We are overwhelmed by the amazing supporters who believe in the success of Stick-N-Find and MeterPlug, allowing us to move full-steam ahead with production," said Jimmy Buchheim, founder of SticknFind. "As part of our road to CES, we will also be unveiling an additional product and will be showcasing all at our booth in Las Vegas. After years of developing Bluetooth technologies for the industry, it is exciting to see this kind of momentum and popularity growing for our own products."

In addition, MeterPlug, just launched merely a week ago has already raised more than $50,000 towards production. MeterPlug works with existing outlets to send consumption usage and cost data directly to a free-to-download smartphone App. Using the App, consumers can keep track of electricity usage from wattage and voltage, down to the actual dollar amount spent based on local electricity bill rate.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
