Bob Frankston will discuss his 50 years online and 25 years of living with connected things from X10 to today's hubs and apps. How do we apply the lessons of the Internet to the physical world and reinvent the world… again!?

Emerson Hsiao, technical lead of Andes Technology's US operation in California, will talk tech for wearables and power sensitive applications. Emerson will show development boards and end-user products incorporating their IP.
