A while ago I’ve heard about some neat ideas for startups.
The first one is the combination of virtual reality and augmented reality. Imagine that you can write a virtual note, leave it on the desk and only the persons you’ve shared it with can come and take it.
Another one is a platform for integrating IoT devices and transforming routine operations to services. Imagine that your smartphone checks that there’s enough hot water for a shower 30 minutes before your alarm clock, and when you close the light in the bathroom the coffee machine will start. The company also monitors patterns of devices and can alert on trends or a sudden change in the behavior. For example, if the refrigerator electricity is going up over a 5% a month in the last 3 month, the platform compare the behavior to similar devices and might recommend calling a technician and replacing the isolating rubber.
