It’s arrived! Samsung’s big yearly developer event kicks off from April 27th – 28th in SF. A place where developers, creators and builders alike come together to discuss the latest technologies and future innovations.

This year, IOT will be one of the big focuses, especially around smart home and ARTIK – their new chipset for IOT. We’ll be there presenting via our developer evangelist – Didier – who’ll be showcasing a demo, plus a mention by ARTIK’s head of division within his talk.

Our demo will be an app enabled home gateway on which we can deploy several applications. We’ll show you how your smart home could interact with a home robot to serve you. The robot will use the camera you have in the house to recognise that you’ve arrived, then use a microphone in the house to take orders from you (!)

There are also other apps that can be deployed on the home gateway too, including an access point (home wifi), video service, local communication server (imagine a Skype or google hangout where data stays in your home), home automation etc. to name a few.

In the build-up to the event we’ve written a few pre-event blogs on their website, including this one here!
