On 3rd December, I attended ThingMonk, an IoT conference bridging the corporate and maker IoT communities. I've tried to pull out the interesting platforms, talks and themes into this post.
I saw a talk by Technology Will Save Us at "This Happened". They design and make electronics kits and host workshops where people can build them.
Playful is a small one-day conference about how game design can affect all forms of media. The theme this year was "the shape of things to come" and each of the speakers put their own slant on this broad topic.
