Everactive: Battery-Free IoT Sensors for Industrial IoT

We recently wrote about solar-powered sensors in the forests that detect forest fires and send alerts to Starlink satellites. SpaceX has moved into IoT with their acquisition of Swarm Technologies which means there will soon be loads of cheap connectivity for IoT sensors. Elon Musk appears to have solved the IoT connectivity problem, and this […]

SpaceX Takes on the Industrial Internet of Things

When Elon Musk decided he wanted to send the first rocket to Mars, he went rocket shopping. That’s when he found out the price of a rocket was astronomical, yet materials only accounted for 2-3% of the cost. So, he decided to build his own rocket and SpaceX was born. The end result is a […]

MachineMetrics – IoT for Industrial Manufacturing

Often called Europe’s last dictatorship, Belarus is a country where you can do things you wouldn’t be able to do elsewhere – like ride in a tank. Actually, they have about half a dozen different tanks you can ride in, each with varying price points. Then there are the factory tours. Want to see how […]

Satellite IoT Startup Plans to Track Everything from Space

If at first you don’t succeed, try again. That’s not just the motto of drunk blokes trying to pick up women at She Soho in an attempt to pull off Gareth Keenan’s ultimate fantasy. It’s also the words by which most entrepreneurs live by, especially if their ultimate fantasy involves building a communications network in […]

C3.ai – An Enterprise Artificial Intelligence Stock

Invented by the Chinese more than 2,500 years ago, Go is thought to be the oldest board game ever played. There are vastly more possible Go games than there are subatomic particles in the known universe. In the beautiful documentary AlphaGo, we see the country of Korea captivated by an artificial intelligence (AI) program playing […]

Microlocation and The Internet of Moving Things

Anyone who loves reading science fiction (sci-fi) will know there’s a peculiar tendency for what is being portrayed as the future to become the future. Robots and artificial intelligence (AI) are a recurring theme in scifi, particularly when the two are merged to become a credible representation of a human. Today, a whole slew of […]

A Leading Industrial Automation Stock

We recently wrapped up a detailed guide to Investing in IoT Stocks and Companies where we summarized every single article we’ve ever written about the Internet of Things (IoT). In that piece, we discussed the Global X Internet of Things ETF (SNSR) which has about $190 million in assets under management and is managed by […]

Altair Engineering Stock is a Play on Simulated Design

Investing in disruptive technologies appeals to investors because it promises high growth over short periods of time when compared to a slow-moving technology benchmark like Nasdaq. In many cases, it’s a get rich scheme in disguise. In other words, if that “next Microsoft” you think you’re holding can’t manage to beat a bog-standard market benchmark, you’ve […]

Investing in IoT and Augmented Reality with PTC Inc.

When evaluating the merits of tech stocks, we like to focus on the exposure investors receive to any particular theme. This is often measured by revenues that can be attributed to the theme as a percentage of total revenues. For example, we looked at how Teradyne has been slowly expanding into industrial robotics. Over time, it’s […]
