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?

openMIC 12 will explore this with 4 thought provoking talks in the morning and 2 detailed barcamp sessions in the afternoon for you to build on the ideas and share your own.

Bath Innovation Centre has been organising openMIC events covering diverse topics around Mobile Apps and Web services for 3 years now. Come and learn how the internet of things could affect our lives and celebrate christmas too.
