There will come a day when new connected inventions will cease to surprise us. But people who work in the M2M industry are not willing to let this day come soon. Our new delivery of ‘Five Amazing things that M2M technology has made reality’ proves it.
A connected mirror
This could fit perfectly in any sci-fi motion picture: imagine waking up and starting to get ready in the morning in front of the mirror, which then reflects back all sorts of information such as your friends’ activity on social media or alerts you on the weather. This is just what the Cybertecture mirror does when connected to a mobile device. But it goes even further. The mirror can help women with their make up or prepare a fitness program.
A beer that cancels any kind of cellular signal
The team behind Polar beer defends that bars are places to enjoy with the people around you and a good drink in your hand. They are not places for mobile phones to be the sole focus of people’s attention. To achieve this, they have created a crafty device that eradicates any mobile signal, be it 3G, 4G or Wifi, in a given place. Just put a bottle of Polar inside the device and people will lose their coverage.
Something happens in your home
Canary is a little sensor that measures acceleration, motion and sound. It also has an HD camera that records what happens around it. So, if you put the device in your home, it will alert you when something happens, whenever a normal parameter is altered.
Don’t lose your objects
There are many things that we tend to lose on a daily basis: keys, wallet, handbag, glasses… Tile is a small label that you can fix on to any of these objects in order to have it located.
We have talked about smart sleepers, smart diapers… smart this and smart that. Well, believe it or not they have now come up with smart socks! It is actually a device attached to them that records stats like calories burned or distance traveled.
