Do you dream of a world where
- thermostats use weather forecasts to minimize energy usage and to run your sprinkler system,
- retail kiosks checkout items from inside your basket and send out-of-stock items home,
- your refrigerator reorders groceries,
- home appliances negotiate with each other to reduce power consumption, or
- the treadmill monitors your health and provides advice from your doctor?
Would you like to make this fantasy world real by using the power of our easy to use developer tools?
