The Next Big Thing, with Tim Stevens and Brian Cooley, takes to the stage at CES to discuss new tech.
Vu says that when Misfit was talking about its new company, there was ambient sensing, and then they looked at wearables, a way of having tech with you all the time.
That was the lowest hanging fruit on the tree. In a world with so many sensors, we have ability to gather so much data. It's mostly because of smartphones, Vu says.
Another audience question: With all the apps out there, bandwidth is getting hard to come by, there's dead spots. Have you thought about bandwidth sharing? How can you guys figure out some kind of topology that helps share available bandwidth? So those that need it get it, and those that don't can give it up?
Bell: I'd argue that current market for data plans assume you don't do that. The pricing models are based on people not using some of the data they pay for. The carriers wouldn't be happy about it, he says.
