  • Bye Bye Batteries: Unleashing the Real Power of the IoT

    There’s something holding back the Internet of Things (IoT) and it’s not imagination, technology or consumer interest. It’s power. I predict there would be billions of sensors at the heart of the billions of intelligent connected devices in use today if these devices didn’t have to rely on some form of battery for power. That’s a problem. Batteries are costly, toxic
