ioBridge Labs is where we tinker on our own projects at ioBridge. We spend at least 20% of our time on new ideas and working with our own technology.
ThingSpeak is an open source "Internet of Things" platform for storing and retrieving data using HTTP commands. ThingSpeak also includes a suite of applications designed for making "social things". This cloud service is open to anyone and can be used with many devices, robots, and things. Visit ThingSpeak.com for more information.
Imagine millions of lights connected together. CheerLights is a project that enables people all around the world to link lights and applications together based on social networking trends. Visit CheerLights.com for more information.
Don't want to be stuck in the mud? Tide Alerts is a project developed by ioBridge to monitor and report tide levels in real-time using low-cost, battery-powered sensors connected to ioBridge cloud services. Users can see current and historical charts, contribute their own data, and set customizable email notifications so you know exactly when to get your boat back to the dock without getting stuck in low water levels. Visit TideAlerts.com for more information.
The Internet of Things will not be complete without a comprehensive security model. ioAuth is a set of open standards that involve how devices and systems authenticate to web services. We are used to the model of signing into a website or authenticating with an API. Devices require the same architecture. ioAuth is OAuth for "things". (specification coming soon)
