Same studies also show that most of these diseases are due to an unhealthy life-style, such as lack of physical activity, unbalanced diet, smoking, etc. In addition, many costly treatments are the result of late detection and handling of problems, because of the lack of feedback on patients’ condition.

In addition, rain gardens also help replenish local aquifers and can also be quite beautiful, enhancing the built environment adjacent to the garden. Rain gardens provide a home for local species of plants and animals to thrive in an otherwise less hospitable built environment. As our communities grow, the quantity of undeveloped land is dwindling,...

Drone Command and Control System at AT&T IoT Hackathon NYC

Last week, scriptr.io attended the AT&T IoT Hackathon in the East Village in Manhattan, NYC. Held in an old Public City Bathhouse, 36 teams and hundreds of programmers converged to prototype Internet of Things concepts using hardware and services from sponsors IBM Watson, Twilio, Intel Edison, and more. We met the DroneSmith team while there and decided to work together and build some mashups! And so DroneMaster was born out of the whirlwind, a drone command and control system. Read on for more. Happy Saturday Hacking – @IBMIoT @IBMBluemix team is open for mentoring at the AT&T Mobile hackathon...
