Congratulations to our customer Data Inventions on their successful product launch at September's IMTS conference!
IMTS, or the International Manufacturing Technology Show, is the single largest manufactoring event in North America. With over 1 million registrations at this year's conference, it proved to be the perfect vehicle for Data Inventions to launch their two new manufacturing apps.
We are thrilled to announce that Data Inventions (a recent Sine-Wave adopter) has recently been awarded part of Ben Franklin Technology Partner's recent round of $1.7 Million investment.
Dare I even mention that summer feels like it's winding down? It's sad, but the good news is that here in the US football season is upon us!!! As with every sport, there are changes that we'll be seeing - I'm not going to talk about new jerseys or even the players that have been traded. I'm talking about the technology behind the game.
We have all heard how huge the IoT industry is, so it's no surprise that it will have an affect on football. It has been for some years now. However starting in September 2015, players will have RFID chips embedded in their shoulder pads thanks to a deal between the NFL and Sportradar US. This season we'll be able to have a new angle into the game seeing key stats such as how fast players ran, acceleration rates and distances traveled during key plays. Similar technology has been used for years in soccer. “The goal is to make the game more engaging for fans,” said Tom Masterman, Chief Revenue Officer at Sportradar US.
I recently read an article on BBC about kids who code after school and although this isn't a new topic, this article in particular was noteworthy for a number of reasons.
There have been tons of press-worthy articles about kids coding and kits targeted to younger generations (Kodable, ScratchJr & Kano), however this article was different. This was about kids in Hong Kong as young as 6 in classes learning to code. Whether you think this is for your family or not isn't the point of this blog; but one must agree that this is exceptional.
These kids are going to rock our world!!!
