The Sengled Pulse is a clever but problematic take on whole-home audio

bulb_page_b_sec_1 Sengled is the latest manufacturer to jump into the smart bulb space and their products, while a bit behind the curve, are clever and – most important – cheap. Their smartest smart bulbs are $10 cheaper than the arguably top-of-the-line Philips LIFX bulbs and they also offer the Pulse, a pair of bulbs containing an LED light source and JBL Bluetooth speakers for about $100.… Read More

Estimote uses their new mesh network of BLE beacons to decorate a yuletide tree

screen-shot-2016-12-08-at-5-34-18-pm Everyone knows the holiday season means three things: family, friends and interconnected low-energy Bluetooth devices connected using a simple mesh network. Estimote, a beacon company, has given us the last thing by creating a small mesh network of wireless beacons that they proceed to hang on a Christmas tree. The new beacons run Bluetooth Low Energy and connect to each other automatically.… Read More

The R.Pi IoT Shield adds IoT connectivity to your DIY project

04c888b6b4d246306f48ec4de6a01b08_original Of all the things in this great green world which we desire the most important is connection. That’s why the R.Pi IoT family is pretty cool. Built by the team that brought us Tinylab, these clever GPRS, GPS, XBee, and LTE shields allow tinkerers to add wireless connectivity to their projects. The shields – what the Raspberry Pi world calls add-on cards – start at $19 and go up… Read More

‘MegaMIMO 2.0’ wireless routers work together to triple bandwidth and double range

various offices connected via light trails in city Wireless interference is one of those things that we tend to not think about, because, well, we can’t see it. But routers are all over the place, sometimes several in a room when you’re in an office, conference, or campus — and make no mistake, it’s an epic battle at the frequencies they share. Some enterprising researchers have found a way to make those routers work… Read More

Devices could recycle radio waves instead of transmitting them with new ‘interscatter’ technique

UW grad student Vikram Iyer holds a contact lens antenna that could use interscatter to communicate. If we’re ever to have things like smart contact lenses and permanent brain implants, one of the things we need to figure out is the power problem. Those devices need energy for collecting, processing and especially transmitting data — but that last one might not be a problem anymore, thanks to a new technique called interscatter communication.
