Nearables & Web Beacons | Houston IoT Meetup
"Nearables" (aka web beacons, such as iBeacon and Eddystone) are an important component of the emerging IoT tech ecosystem. Featuring bluetooth (specifically, BLE 4.0) technology, they enable the "Physical Web" in which non-tech objects in the physical world can gain a form of implied intelligence. It's a cool technology that be used by inventors and app developers -- and makers wanting to add smart capabilities to their homes and offices.
About Houston IoT Meetup
IoT (Internet of Things) is a "super-hot" technology space with significant potential for learning, projects, inventions and fun! This meetup will be both educational and hands-on as we learn from each other about current and evolving hardware, software, sensor and communications technologies, and have the opportunity to see, share and assist with member projects. Each session will have new discoveries, and many of the member projects will prove to be very useful. Who knows -- some great products might emerge from this meetup!
