Google's Nest Is Buying Wi-Fi Camera Company Dropcam For $555 Million

Google's Nest Is Buying Wi-Fi Camera Company Dropcam For $555 Million | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

The company's cameras are used primarily for home monitoring. Its two most popular cameras sell for $199 and $149.

In addition to its hardware business, Dropcam also sells cloud storage for its videos. Last year the company said 39% of its customers pay for the video storage service.

Dropcam will probably look to Nest's success in the "Internet of Things" space for guidance. It plans to move beyond video surveillance and hopes to incorporate movement sensors into its products, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Mind blowing interview of McLaren's Ron Dennis about the impact of Big Data on motor racing

Ron Dennis of McLaren in conversation with David Rowan, editor of Wired, in conversation at the G8 Innovation Conference on 14 June 2013 at the Crystal in London

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

6 months after, I'm still looking at this talk as one of the most inspiring features of the G8 Innovation Conference I was invited at by UKTI and McKinsey last year. I have suggested this video to business friends many times over the past weeks and it is one of the very few YouTube pieces that I actually have viewed more than once.

 

Key points :

- Motor racing is unique: the second is the unit, a 1% window between success and failure.

- A Formula 1 has 100 sensors 6.5 Billion data points over a Grand Prix. A race team is run from HQ where 3000 race patterns are analysed against the current car's parameters.

- McLaren spends between 100-200 M£ in their data analysis and processing systems.

- In racing there is no error and control. Massive fast development of components. Simulation reversed R&D: now they have 90% productivity instead of 10%. "Basically we make nothing that does not work"

- Electric motor coupled to very sophisticated control system allow for absolutely linear torque

- One last thing : Graphene is the next big thing
