openMIC #12 – Android and the internet of things

Friday 2nd December 2011 @Bath Ventures Innovation Centre

As the cost of hardware capable of running the Google Android operating system goes under $100 there is an opportunity for application developers to create services that run on a dedicated platform. The number of internet connected devices is rocketing and Android devices that are not smartphones or tablets could be a major driver in this growth.

Smart cities, intelligent homes, mHealth application, motoring computing devices all communicating to make the world a better place is the vision but how could a $100 android device provide useful services in the short term?

BEN/openMIC networking – Apps for Business

Tuesday March 01  2011 @Bath Ventures Innovation Centre

Apps are becoming an integral part of modern life for consumers. How can they also be used to achieve business objectives?

The potential of mobile apps for business is only starting to be explored. They offer a fresh channel to engage, communicate with, market and deliver services to individual customers or partners – wherever they may be.

This event, run jointly by BEN and openMIC, explored what businesses are already doing with apps and the benefits they are achieving. It highlighted the opportunities for app developers and will offer insights into how this sector will develop in the future.

The event also included a demonstration of the exciting Layars augmented reality app, using locally-developed content.
