Telit, a global enabler of the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that the company is sponsoring the IOTORAMA Web Project, which was commissioned by Mobile World Capital Barcelona and demonstrated at the 2015 Mobile World Congress. The site, which has been created by the Alpha-ville Studio, allows people to learn about the IoT in a "playful" way, and it has been designed to engage visitors in a game-like interface that allows them to explore various aspects of the IoT environment.
When entering the website, people are invited to discover different areas of life by exploring a network of geometric shapes that wander around the display. Animated circles depict familiar areas such as home, body & mind, culture, and DIY. They can be linked to data sources (red squares) and purposes (blue triangles).
This 'click & connect' process is playful, but the result is educational. In this case it shows how connected locks allow users to control their home security via mobile phone applications, or web interfaces that connect to the installed lock.
"The decision to sponsor this project was based on a number of factors. It's an elegant innovative way of demonstrating the possibilities and implications of connected technologies. And it shows how the IoT can be used to enhance everyday tasks that are taken for granted," said Alexander Bufalino, Telit's CMO.
"IOTORAMA is a resource that can be used to showcase IoT projects, but also to inspire people about the immense possibilities of connected technologies," said Estela Oliva, Alpha-ville's Founder and Creative Director. "The name is a combination of IoT and a Greek suffix that indicates a wide view, which is exactly what this project conveys."
