Hardly days ago I was moaning about how we will never get to the Internet of things (IoT). Electric imp seems out to mock my moan. The electric imp API pairs with its hardware. The hardware can be installed in an electronic device, with the example given of a weight scale. The hardware delivers a seamless wifi experience and then through the API links up the data to cloud services, presumably destined through an app for an Android, iOS or other OS device. The API itself is still in beta.
We've added twelve APIs to the ProgrammableWeb directory in various categories including Internet of Things, Messaging, Mapping and MetaData. Included today are APIs for tagging in OpenStreetMap and for using the Deepviz Malware Analyzer sandbox. Here's a summary of what's new.
