Treating cancer with the Internet of Things
Robert Clarke, the Managing Director and owner of RADLogic, has had a great amount of experience in integrated circuit design, working quite closely on the technical design of RADLogic's offerings. As another fantastic speaker at the upcoming YOW! Connected conference this year, I asked him all about the IoT and using it for life-changing cancer treatment.
Tech wandering at Convergence 003
We spent a day at Convergence 003, an event where a diverse group of top tech professionals come together to hear insights from world class speakers, technology brands and thought leaders. Here are some of the highlights of what went down.
This week, a robot was arrested in Russia (welcome to the future!), one developer worked out a way to play giant 3D versions of classic NES games on the HoloLens, and you could get $50 for participating in Cayenne's latest competition and then spend it on the new, cheaper, $50 Echo Dot that was just released!
Chris tinkers with the IoT and robotics and you can too!
Chris Biggs has pieced together some pretty cool tech creations, including a work-in-progress, half-scale version of K-9 from Doctor Who, his very own working CNC milling and engraving machine, racing bots and an evolving collection of home automation capabilities in his house! He'll be speaking at this year's YOW! Connected conference in Melbourne on the 5th-6th October, so we caught up with him to share his experiences with the IoT, robotics and integrating Slack into the mix!
This week was packed with news galore as Apple announced the iPhone 7, new Apple Watch and their new "AirPods", Samsung is tinkering with smart rings, Deepmind achieved a breakthrough in AI speech generation, Apple shut down parts of its self-driving car project and Alphabet is training their drones by sending them on university burrito delivery runs. Not a burrito fan? Don't worry, the IoT can also cook us better hot dogs now.
How do I access my Raspberry Pi server over the web?
The easiest way to access your Raspberry Pi from the web for testing things out (like a simple web server) is to use a service called ngrok. It creates a secure tunnel to your Pi's locally running server, giving you a simple public URL that you can use to access it from anywhere online.
