To celebrate Global IoT Day this past Wednesday, we held a contest in conjunction with MakeDeck asking you to share what your #IoTDreamProduct would be. We had a good number of fun and clever submissions, and we’re pleased to announce the two winners.
Congratulations to @devonelliott for his idea of a connected garbage can.
Today is Global IoT Day and we’re pleased as Internet-connected peaches to be celebrating it with such a wonderful community. We believe that the real innovation and creativity within the IoT space isn’t being driven by big companies, although they’re certainly providing important infrastructure and support, but by makers like you. You are the developers and artists who are pushing the IoT movement forward, and redefining what connectivity can mean for physical devices. You are the developers who will come up with The Next Big Thing.
In honor of Global IoT Day, we’re partnering with our friends at MakeDeck for a contest that runs today, and today only! We want you to tell us what the Internet of Things means to you, and how it can change the way we live, work, communicate and play.
We want you to do this by telling us about your dream connected product.
