CAD tools have assisted architects and engineers in product development for decades. Despite their widespread adoption and usefulness, two aspects of CAD tools remain pretty consistent across the CAD landscape: high costs and proprietary software. Sunglass aims to alleviate both pains of traditional CAD tools through the Sunglass API. Sunglass co-founder and CEO, Kaustuv DeBiswas, asserts: "We don't want to compete on a feature-by-feature basis" with traditional CAD tools. Rather, the Sunglass API constitutes a collaboration tool that serves "as the bridge for sharing 3D product design data and for managing version control for engineers and colleagues working across different systems."
The XML-based Feinsearch API makes it possible for companies seeking to do multiple searches, sometimes in the thousands, to integrate that capability into their own programs via its proprietary EIN Batchmatch. The Feinsearch database has more than 16 million business and suppliers.
Pokémon GO has been hugely popular and generated millions of sessions around the world as people search for the digital creatures. But, it turns out that a fair chunk of recent API traffic has been coming from gaming bots that are making spatial queries to the API from outside of the game client.
