All of us have experienced this at one time or the other. Driving away from home, you just get on the freeway and a few miles into it; a tiny doubt creeps in your mind. Did I turn off the oven? What about setting the security alarm?  As you try to convince yourself that it’s but force of habit and you would have, you still can’t shake off the nagging doubt.

Well, worry not! Now, your smartphone or tablet has you covered. Now connected home appliances and devices can communicate among themselves and with your smartphone. With Internet-of-Things, sensors embedded in everyday physical objects can enable these objects to communicate intelligently.

How Innovation Happens at IDEO

Posted by Shyam Deval

Fri, Sep 5, 2014

I am in the middle of reading a fascinating book by David and Tom Kelley – two brothers who have spearheaded IDEO, one of the world’s leading innovation and design firms.  David is also the creator of  d.school at Stanford University – which teaches design thinking – a unique multi-disciplinary approach to innovation.  

So why am I writing about innovation in a technology blog – because we at BTC live and breathe it with numerous Entrepreneurs and Enterprises who we work with - to bring their ideas and innovations to reality.  We are their technology partners and their sound boards as they work to bring their ideas to market - experimenting, testing, implementing and repeating.

The iPhone has got us addicted to shooting pictures, editing them, sharing them and has singlehandedly raised a generation of people who have made “selfies” a national occupation.

And videos were never going to be far behind. With the introduction of HD in the iPhone 4, graduations, vacations, weddings, simple everyday moments all became an occasion to capture and cherish. With a big exception as scores of amateur smartphone photographers and viewers found out - videos shot on handheld devices were shaky, jumpy and many times, a pain to watch; let alone cherish.
