JayWSalon Smart Hardware

  1. 1. Smart Hardware - Where will this lead our lives? JayWSalon 9.20.13 Yang Huang, Yuling Liang, Connie Xu, Zhongjie Wu
  2. 2. Why now? ● Cheaper, smaller sensors and batteries ● Rapidly rising smartphone computational power ● Networking/Wifi/BLE(aka Bluetooth Smart, Zigbee) ● Crowdfunding platforms lower barriers to entry ● Emphasis on consumer UX, design, efficiency, and a “data-driven” culture
  3. 3. Wearable Devices Health Monitoring SmartWatch Glass Smartphone Peripherals US ● Fitbit ● Jawbone Up ● BASIS ● Pebble ● Samsung Gear ● Sony SmartWatch ● Google Glass ● Oculus Rift ● Meta ● Bluetooth Headset ● Tile ● Lapka ● Sphero ● Automatic ● Whistle China ● 咕咚手环 (Baidu) ● 麦步 (Wechat) ● 康康血压 ● 闪点运动记录 器 ● GEAK智能手表 (果壳电子) ● inWatch(映趣 科技) ● 土曼 T-Watch ● 智能腕表AM3 ● 百度Eye (-_-|||) ● 够格眼镜? ● 快乐妈咪胎语仪 ● “幻腾”智能灯 ● “找找” ● “BroadLink”
  4. 4. More on Smart Watches ● Smartphone Replacement? or Companion? ● Limitations: ○ Computation Power (Cloud can help?) ○ Screen (size, always-on or not) ○ Battery (smarter processors) ● Why use Smart Watches ○ Convenient (no more pick phone->unlock->find app) ○ Unique sensors (step counter, heart-rate, temperature and etc)
  5. 5. Home Automation ● Temperature: ○ Nest: smart AC/Heat controller ○ Cubesensors ● Home appliance: ○ Philips Hue: Smart light bulb ○ Washer/Dryer/Oven ● Switch/power control: ○ Belkin WeMo Switch: Smart electric outlet ● Security: ○ iSmartAlarm, Lockitron
  6. 6. Enabling Platforms ● Single-board computer platforms ○ Raspberry Pi vs Arduino vs Beaglebone Black ○ Low price ($25-$45) ○ Powerful computers and applications ● Hardwares providing network connectivity ○ Electric Imp, Pinoccio, Spark ○ Modules support Zigbee such as XBee ● Software providing Cloud connectivity ○ Arrayent: Used on Whirlpool smart appliances LEGO pieces - build your own!
  7. 7. Arduino ● A single-core microcontroller. ● Cheap ($25 for Uno version, $69 for Yun version) ● Extensible (wide range of compatible components available) ● Open Source board design. ● Easy to program, great for prototyping ideas. ● Plenty of tutorials, vibrant communities.
  8. 8. Arduino (Cont’d) ● It is about input (from sensors) and output (make things happen). Similar to IFTTT. ● Connects virtual (code) with physical (world)
  9. 9. Sample Projects - Eink showing tweets - Pillow Alarm w/ Arduino - Pillow with music and LED lights - Glass Pulse meter - Heart rate sensor on a pair of glass. - sleepiness analysis
  10. 10. The Ecosystem?! Software Hardware Supply Chain Partnerships Financial backers / Investors Talents Entrepreneurs Sales & Distribution Manufacturing Apps Protocol standard human interaction Social marketing crowdfunding design, engineering early education startup QC/IP
  11. 11. Supply Chain & Manufacturing ● Component/parts sourcing ○ Hardware making lessons learnt from Apple ● Manufacturing/assembly ○ Lemnos Labs is helping startups find right China manufacturers ● Transportation ● For international markets ○ Made in USA vs Made in China ○ Raspberry Pi are going to be made in UK
  12. 12. Challenges ● Cloud/Mobile/Device -- syncing among multiple platforms ● Real-time requirements ● Multiple users / connectivity ● Energy harvesting / wireless charging ● New sensors & batteries rapidly evolving
  13. 13. Implications ● Paradigm shift in App design ● Different forms of information I/O ● Real action to intelligence & data ● Crowdsourced models enabled (Tile)
  14. 14. A day in the future
  15. 15. Open Questions ● How does wearable devices change human behavior? ● Which device will become the integrator of what functions? (Glass? Watch? Ring? Phone?) ● What new problems can these solve? ● Does China’s manufacturing infrastructure provide advantage over US? Is cost really an issue? ● Which will run faster, US or China? ... ● Sensor within the human body?! (Singularity)
