Margaret Rhodes over at Wired had an interesting write-up on a new product getting Kickstarted. The device is called “Thingsee One”, and it’s a small gadget with all kinds of sensors, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, and a magnetometer.
The Thingsee One’s appeal is that it can be used for just about anything.
Haltian, a company that owes its very existence to Microsoft acquiring Nokia, is the company behind the Thingsee. Their hope is that users will be able to use the device in a number of ways. The variety of sensors give users customizability unheard of at this early stage of IoT.
In their video demo, they show examples of a farmer being alerted when the mail has been delivered, tracking your speed, or you can use their SDK to create your own functionality.
And don’t sleep on the battery. Because the Thingsee has a 2G antenna for Internet, the battery will reportedly last an entire year.
The Thingsee One looks like it might be an IoT developer’s best friend.
