Iota Labs Takes on Physical Push Notifications

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a Kickstarter campaign! In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we start things off with UC Berkley startup Iota Labs who gives us an up-close introduction to their new physical push notification system called Dot. Also this week, John Long from LCR embedded systems joins Fish Fry to discuss the newest advances, challenges, and advantages of using using fiber-optics in embedded designs. To finish things up (and in celebration of Star Trek’s recent 50th Anniversary), we inspect the new Star Trek TNG Bluetooth® ComBadge available for pre-order from ThinkGeek.
