The cloud has acted as a catalyst for the development and deployment of scalable IoT business models and applications. Read about how some Cloudreachers are using IoT with their projects.
Two Blocks Away is heading to re:Invent!
It all started with a Hackathon Hackathons are great events for improving and up-skilling people, whilst having fun, creating and innovating as a team. Two Blocks Away was an entrant to our .create() Hackathon, and it was such a fantastic concept that we’re taking it to re:Invent 2018! We were looking for something eye-catching that demonstrates […]

The Future Of Voice: Part 1
Voice technologies are everywhere. You can’t avoid seeing someone using voice for “something”, whether that be a five year old playing their favourite music on an Echo, or an adult in a pub settling a debate via smartphone. We decided to put together a series of blog posts commenting on the future of voice technology. […]
Driving IoT forward: from Data Cars to the real-world
This year at our re:Invent booth we debuted Data Cars, which adds real-time cloud backed telemetry to a Scalextric set. Data Cars streams acceleration data from IoT devices onboard the slot cars, through a local device which performs data aggregation and preprocessing, and from there into AWS where the data is analysed and visualised. In […]
Alexa – The Cloudy Concierge

The idea does not necessarily have to be technology related but rather, something to make our lives easier. Here at our London office, […]

I started my IoT collection about 2 years ago when I asked for Philips Hue lights for Christmas… I got a few confused comments and looks […]
Is there more to Amazon IoT than IoT?
The initial rant… I think ever since I got into technology in 1992 I have always been looking for the right combination of tools to fulfill a specific requirement. In fact back in 1992 there really weren’t as many libraries, utilities and services out there. The plain fact was that you even had to pay […]
Is IoT Safe for your Business?
Back in January I wrote a post on IoT and the year ahead. I suspect the past few weeks’ activities have given IoT somewhat more press than my humble ramblings. Pretty much no one escaped the news that there have been some interesting new variants on the good old fashioned Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS), […]
