IoT World 2016 favorites

My personal favorites at the IoT World Conference

Samsung

I am very impressed by the Samsung Artik

Looks like they are way ahead of competition in terms of understanding of how complete IoT solution should look like. Artik looks like a good platform and ecosystem that includes hardware modules, API specs, cloud, and growing community of developers. 

Reference device implementations based on different Artik Modules

Reference implementation of sensors and detectors


ARTIK 5 Dev kit

OTTO robot

ARTIK1 module and dev kit

Another dev kit (complete with WiFi connectivity)





Arduino

Arduino for IoT.  It is not as complete as ARTIK but it is open, has a large developer community (myself included),  and working on a MQTT message-based cloud. All the rights components for a big success story! 





Here is the right way to demo an IoT solution (based on Raspberry Pi)




Jaguar 

This company really understand usability! Do not know much about Jaguar driving experience but product design is simply amazing!

Posting to FaceBook feed using Graph API

Graph API was announced at F8 with a promise to dramatically simplify the FB API. I checked the read access over the new interface during the presentations and to my big surprise it worked flawlessly and from the first time. When I tried https://graph.facebook.com/facebook, JSON-formatted info about the FaceBook page was returned (as expected).
Then I tried OAuth 2.0 way of accessing the API to post a message to the feed. And to my even bigger surprise it worked too!
Here is what you need to do to access Graph API over OAuth: 1. Create a FB app, store app properties to a file:
$appkey='7925873fbfb5347e571744515a9d2804'; $appsecret='THE SECRET'; $canvas='http://apps.facebook.com/graphapi/'; 2. Create a page that will prompt user the access permission (I am prompting for the publish_stream and offline_access permissions at the same time)
//http://apps.facebook.com/graphapi/ require'settings.php';
$url="https://graph.facebook.com/oauth/authorize?"; $url.=…

Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) and PHP

This morning Amazon announced availability of a bulk email delivery service called "Simple Email Service". Anyone who knows how much pain is it to set-up scalable email solution (and it is not just spammers who need it!) should celebrate the occasion. I know of a company that spent several years cleaning ip addresses it sends email and found itself locked into the contract with internet provider since it would take forever to reach required level of email deliver ability anywhere else.

Anyway, this evening I decided to check the Amazon claim that the service is "simple". Found out that it is indeed simple!
Since there is not much in terms of the documentation yet, here is my code where I used AWS PHP library:

// Enable full-blown error reporting. http://twitter.com/rasmus/status/7448448829
error_reporting(-1);

// Set plain text headers
header("Content-type: text/plain; charset=utf-8");

// Include the SDK
require_once '../sdk.class.php';


// Instantiate th…

Respect Coin

Respect I think it's time to talk about currency. Let's create a Respect Coin.
Step 1. Install OpenZeppelin library npm install zeppelin-solidity
When it comes to coins, I like to use some functions that smart people already implemented and other smart people verified. I think that Zeppelin is a nice collection of Solidity contracts that can be trusted. Let's use the StandardToken contract and use it as a parent class for our own RespectCoin contract.
Step 2. Create RespectCoin contract and store it in "contracts/RespectCoin.sol" file pragma solidity ^0.4.4; import "../node_modules/zeppelin-solidity/contracts/token/StandardToken.sol"; /** * @title RespectCoin * @dev ERC20 Token example, where all tokens are pre-assigned to th e creator. * Note they can later distribute these tokens as they wish using `transfer` and other * `StandardToken` functions. */ contract RespectCoin is StandardToken { string public constant name = "RespectCoin&quo…
