Apparently if I don’t start a topic here, no one will. :-) So I thought I’d plug this startup that is poised to change the landscape of IoT. Imagine what IoT would look like if devices didn’t need a battery? To give you some perspective, imagine what the IoT is going to look like if devices DO require a battery! I wrote a blog post about it (http://bit.ly/1btfMxz) but to summarize … Gartner/Forrester/etc. say 20B devices by 2020. Say ½ of them require a battery. 10B devices. Be generous and give the batteries a 3-year duty-cycle. You’re changing over 3B batteries every year. Grim. Unless you have an army of battery changers.
