Nest: a self learning thermostat is connected to the Internet. August: a Bluetooth enabled door lock lets you enter your home when it recognizes your smartphone. While Internet of Things invaeds our home, the best way to keep us safe is simply through keeping some of these devices OFF the internet.
And kickstarter did it again: an Android based quadcore device which controls the home automation and is a router. It even connects to Nest, the connected thermostat recently acquired by Google. It embeds an Exynos SoC from Samsung. Actually the hardware platform is probably over-dimensioned for what it actually does. Yet it comes in the form factor of a tablet which means that for once the User Interface is user friendly.
As we could expect from such a sexy product, the pre-orders are higher than what was initially requested.
