First up today, we want to talk about focusing less on the app’s around smart home automation and more on the APIs. API, it is the central issue that everybody has to really grapple with if you want to get into anything tech. An API, that is application program interface, that it’s really about how devices connect with other platforms. So when we’re looking at Apple’s home kit, when were looking at Google web, Amazon has Echo with Alexa. That is an API protocol and how the devices are actually speaking to other applications. And it’s either one or the other, or, there are some very smart manufacturers that are really trying to get ahead of the game and beyond all platforms, and beyond their own app as well. One of those manufacturers that we’ve talked about is Phillips. With their Hugh lighting system. Very cool. They decided, let’s be on Apple home kit, let’s be with google, and let’s be with amazon alexa. They even have their own dedicated app if you don’t want to work with one of them. So it’s really Universal and that’s kind of the answer I think we all need to get to universal use. So because we don’t want to be in one or the other, or maybe we can buy this next thing, or maybe we can wait too confusing.
So the next article thing we’re looking at today is some interesting information coming out of Columbia they have a couple on key issues, that they’re trying to achieve with this particular product innovation. One is, Colombia has a large amount of plastic that is going into the landfills, that they need to figure out something to do it. They also have an issue with affordable housing. This company which is Columbia, it’s a plastics company out of Columbia have found a way to recycle that plastic into lego like building blocks. I think it’s a really clever idea. Now whether it works in the US, without US building standards remains to be seen. But the idea of taking a problem and making it a win-win perfect.
So the final article that we’re bringing out today is around a new technology, that is taking solar panels and marrying those with an older alternative energy source that hasn’t really caught on yet, but the idea of fuel cell. So it’s taking the solar energy, and using that to create hydrogen for fuel Celtic. You need to start upload basically, and actually I’ve done quite a bit of research. In fact, that I’ve met the people from bloom energy who are really first and foremost in the whole fuel cell technology arena. They were able to bring fuel cell technology costs down to a point that it’s now really a good choice for the commercial arena. I have talked to them many times trying to kind of pull them into the residential world because I think it will be a slam dunk there. But right now the cost to benefit ratio is not quite there for the residential world. But you go into large distribution areas, you look at Fedex distribution centers, Google, ebay, you know, big office building distribution facilities, they can be run and they are run on bloom energy fuel cell technology. It is a great way to go so they do need startup loads, and that’s what that solar component adds to it basically. Watch bloom energy, I think there’s more to come here I’m hoping anyway.
To get the best of recycling and rebuilding stuffs from the garbage or dumpsite we need to call on the expert of this area and have the best services of trommel fines and many more regarding waste management and rebuilding.
