With the cinemizer OLED, realtors can provide a new level of service to their customers. Designed to make home buying more enjoyable and less time intensive, the system allows agents to show purchasers immersive home video tours anywhere, anyplace and at any time on a virtual 40" big screen HDTV. With 2D and 3D capabilities, the cinemizer OLED immerses the viewer into the home tour, without the time-intensive process of driving from property to property.

"We're always looking for the latest in technology to help sell homes," said Kevin Higgins, realtor with Real Estate One. "The opportunity to walk through a home in a 3D video tour is incredible; statistics show that home buyers love pictures and existing video tours—they'll eat it up in 3D. This technology will bring radical change to how homes are bought and sold."

With a high-contrast display, lightweight design for easy set-up and positioning, and personalized diopter settings to adjust focus individually for each user, the cinemizer OLED is the most affordable, high-quality set of immersive video glasses of its type on the market. Realtors are able to access home tours from an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. The glasses also can be easily connected to a PC, Mac, or handheld touch device via Wi-Fi.

"We took the unique needs of the real estate industry into account when working with partners on an industry solution," said Dave Hodgson, principal of Total 3D Solutions. "The cinemizer OLED provides a whole new opportunity for realtors and brokers. Not only will realtors be able to more easily expand the offerings of real estate shown to potential buyers, but brokers can use the technology to recruit and hire new agents at their companies."

The cinemizer OLED is made available through Total 3D Solutions growing network of partners. Kits can be developed that include an Apple connector kit and an optional fourth-generation iPod Touch device for playing digital video. Packages can also be developed to provide the glasses with a charger, carrying and storage case, in-office promotional materials and staff training.  Total 3D Solutions offers full service and support to dealers and customers in North America.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water,...
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data.

Get ready to show them the money!
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...
