Sensemakers NYC

It’s always great when you can mix tech talk and the casual atmosphere of a local bar. Last Wednesday, that’s exactly what the latest Sensemakers event, Bar Talks, did.

So what’s the latest in the world of the Internet of Things in New York City?

Leif Percifield spoke to the crowd about his latest project, Visualight. Visualight is an open-source Wi-Fi enabled light bulb that can visualize data as colored light. You can see the successfully funded project on Kickstarter here.

Rob Faludi, our Collaborative Strategy Leader here at Digi, covered “How the Internet of Things will Reshape Business.”

And, Michael Doherty explained what’s next for his successful Kickstarter project, Bitponics.
“Bioponics is a device and a website that will simplify hydroponic gardening. You tell it about your setup and what plants you’re growing, and it provides you with a personalized growing plan that tells you how to achieve the best possible results. Sensors in your garden send readings to your account on the Bitponics website. The website then processes that information and sends notifications back to your device to control things such as pumps and lights.”
