Richard Platt's curator insight, November 8, 2:46 AM

In an effort to speed up adoption, start-up Spark has created a set of chips that make it easy for developers to connect "dumb products"–your average coffee machine or car–to the internet over wifi.  Currently, 20,000 engineers are making products using the company's platform. Projects to date include a wifi-connected sprinkler system and a solar-powered security camera dubbed "the infinity camera" because - in theory - it never stops taking photos.

Unfortunately according to this analysis from IDTechEx not much can be said for the $50 Edison compared to the $4 Arduino Nano. people are also comparing the Edison to the Raspberry Pi but its main shortcoming there is lack of video output. The Raspberry Pi has a GPU with HD video output via HDMI. The Edison has nothing at all. Intel staff has been unable to give us a clear idea of what the Edison can achieve in the market place in the high volumes a huge company like Intel must seek. An ARM-based SoC with all the usual sensors integrated would be far more interesting in the view of IDTechEx.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, November 14, 12:11 AM

Be careful what you wish for.  In this case, a new industrial revolution run by robotic machines will displace humans in the workplace, creating massive unemployment.  Economic unrest sows the seeds for insurrection and social violence.  This trend was predicted by such films as "Bladerunner", "Metropolis" by German film director Fritz Land, and "I Robot" by Isaac Asimov.  The future may not be as optimistic as some writers have described.  Aloha, Russ.
