Great IoT demo
There’s a lot of hype/buzz about IoT. Lots of buzz words – MQTT, COAP, Zigbee, platforms – but not really a lot of simple to understand examples.
IBM to its credit has a really simple demo that involves your smartphone. Simply go to http://discover-iot.eu-gb.mybluemix.net/#/play/device/smartphone and type in a name (anything really) and then go to a URL on your phone. Their platform (IoT foundation / Bluemix) then shows your phone’s sensor attributes in real time.
For those still struggling to get their minds around IoT this could be the “aha” moment.
