In 1965 Gordon Moore, Co-Founder of Intel, made a prediction, he thought at the time would last 10 years. In reality his prediction has continue to ring true for last 50 years and is still going. Moore’s Law predicts the number of transistors that can fit on a silicon chip will double every two years as technology advances.1
At the time Moore made his prediction, color television was just emerging in the United States and you had to actually walk to the TV to turn the channel. Most homes had telephone service with a party line that was shared by multiple service subscribers. Personal computers would not become common for another 15-20 years. Continue Reading
When we talk about the devices that make up the Internet of Things (IoT), what comes to your mind? Smartphones, wearables, light bulbs, refrigerators, thermostats, smoke sensors, infotainment systems – the list can be endless. These connected devices became an integral part of our daily lives and their number will continue to increase year after year, according to the experts’ forecasts.
As human interactions with connected devices become stronger, GUI developers face challenges each day when designing for IoT. Continue Reading

Nowadays, most of the world’s population is concerned about global health issues. As of 2012, about half of all adults in the USA —117 million people—have one or more chronic health conditions. One of four adults has two or more chronic health conditions.  As the number of people with chronic diseases is increasing, the ability for qualitative and constant monitoring of their health is limited. This results into the situation when many people are not receiving medical help on time and of a good quality, which can be life-threatening. Continue Reading
M2M (or Machine to Machine), the automated communication of data between connected devices, provides many unique solutions that have the capability to be utilized in a broad range of situations and industries in order to reduce costs, increase efficiencies, improve processes and simplify workflows, among other things. The continued development of the Internet of Things (IoT) which involves the communication and networking of objects via the internet is working to achieve a pathway for goods to travel to their destinations all by themselves as data currently does on the internet of today.
M2M (Machine to Machine) is the technology that establishes intelligent communication between two things, usually devices which have been enabled to both send and receive communications. The possible number of connected devices in today’s world is practically unlimited. Transportation, energy, industrial automation, security and engineering – nearly every industry anticipates achieving strong growth rates in the next ten years through the implementation and utilization of M2M technologies. The ability of these devices to communicate with one another and send and receive intelligent commands can reduce or eliminate the need for human interaction and therefore streamline processes, save costs, increase speed and efficiency and also play a key role in increased safety in a wide range of situations and industries.
