Misfit Shine est élu gadget no2 lors du CES

LAS VEGAS, 11 janvier 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Misfit Shine s'est classé deuxième lors du salon Last Gadget Standing du Consumer Electronics Show. Le produit de santé était sorti grand favori du vote en ligne du concours. Malgré un fervent coup de pouce sur les réseaux sociaux et bien qu'il ait le plus grand nombre de pages consultées, Misfit a perdu sa première place au profit de Lenovo à la dernière minute. Shine s'est également classé deuxième à cette occasion lors d'un vote public en direct s'appuyant sur le niveau d'applaudissements.

Shine est un traqueur d'activités physiques personnel et élégant disponible avec une gamme d'accessoires afin que les utilisateurs puissent le porter presque partout (chaussures, pantalon, soutien-gorge, poignet, cou, cheveux, etc.). Il suffit à l'utilisateur de tapoter l'appareil pour qu'un cercle lumineux apparaisse et indique son niveau d'avancement par rapport au niveau d'activité physique quotidienne qu'il s'est fixé. Avec son design intemporel, Shine est un diamant taillé dans un bloc massif d'aluminium dont la qualité équivaut celle de l'aéronautique et construit pour durer toute une vie. Il fonctionne avec l'application Shine, qui permet aux utilisateurs de définir leurs objectifs fitness. Pour synchroniser Shine, il suffit de le placer sur l'écran de son téléphone : les données sont téléchargées en quelques secondes.

Shine, qui sera disponible au printemps 2013, a déjà provoqué une tempête sur Indiegogo, où il a recueilli près de 700 000 USD de la part de 7 000 bailleurs de fonds issus de 64 pays. Le PDG Sonny Vu a déclaré : « Nous sommes heureux de constater que les gens aiment Shine. Je pense que le savoir-faire et l'attention aux détails avec lesquels Shine a été réalisé ont permis de créer un produit incroyablement élégant et particulièrement attrayant. »

Shine sera vendu au détail au prix de 99 USD, toutefois les premiers à l'adopter peuvent le pré-commander à prix réduit (69 USD) sur Indiegogo jusqu'au 16 janvier : http://www.misfitwearables.com/shine

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.
Smart Cities are here to stay, but for their promise to be delivered, the data they produce must not be put in new siloes. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mathias Herberts, Co-founder and CTO of Cityzen Data, discussed the best practices that will ensure a successful smart city journey.
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
