In 2018 the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona does not only attract manufacturers and suppliers from the mobile communications industry, but also representatives and companies of the “Internet of Things” in addition to network operators, developers and mobile communications equipment […]
Recently I, once again, had the pleasure of participating in an event devoted entirely to the subject of digitization. Core thesis: Digitization comes faster than expected. So far so good. However, I had certain misgivings about the practical relevance of the thesis. I was proven right
With new ideas, new technologies and new smart products emerging every year, one big challenge for devices in the Internet of Things remains: How can we make them understand each other? A huge number of manufacturers and products using different protocols plus a wide range of platforms with non-interoperable networking technologies are making the IoT too complicated to handle.
Berlin’s annual conference “re:publica” has finally grown out of its infancy. What started as a blogger-event with a high nerd factor has finally become a serious annual gathering of, let’s say, a variegated tech society. Founders, inventors, politicians, activists and journalists met to present, network and discuss.

Already in use in the field of Smart Home, Smart Building, Smart Energy and Smart Garden systems, Lemonbeat’s range of use is vast.
Let’s face it: Explaining the Internet of Things and the advantages of direct communication between devices can be a dry and theoretical topic. So we decided to literally spice the whole story up and add a little bit of gamification to the issue: In future events we’re going to demonstrate our technology with a smart game of dice that communicates its result to a vending machine, releasing a pack of Lemonbeat branded snack chips in case players sucessfully rolled the dice.
