Austrian FFG project "Pilotfabrik 4.0" takes shape

Io-Austria has filed an application for the BMVIT (Austrian Ministry for Traffic, Innovation and Technology) project for Industry 4.0 pilot factories. This project has taken strong shape with around 40 interested parties. And the recently held IoT-Vienna July Workshop was used to work on collaboration modes for the consortium. Find out details and the presented slides on our event website!

Also: One of the largest Austrian newspapers - KURIER - printed a report about our project and the BMVIT initiative. We were officially allowed to publish this report (German only) and can therefore bring it to you here!

Tor-Alternative Riffle: Neues Netzwerk soll absolute Anonymität bieten

Putting your own PokemonGO: Exploring the Physical Web (Without Buying Beacons)

The Physical Web is still pretty new, but the basic idea is that the Physical Web lets you broadcast any URL to the people around you. Awesome, right? The Physical Web lets you anchor URLs to physical places by way of a BLE beacon, effectively allowing you to “park” a webpage, link to a file, etc., wherever you want. It’s kind of like putting your own “Pokémon Go” wherever you want for people to find — except without making them surrender all their data ;)
