15 Million Connected Devices by 2015

There is a great article by Electronic Design talking about the prediction that there will be 15 million connected devices by the year 2015!  That is not so long away.  Matrix Product Development has the capabilities and know-how to connect devices through technology.  Products we design going forward will have a diversity of connectivity platforms.


Matrix Sky Brightness Monitors and NASA

Matrix worked extensively on Night Sky Brightness Monitors for the International Dark Sky Association to create the international standard for the association.

Disney is saving money with the same RFID technology for garment tracking that Matrix’s Wyze Scan uses for hospital surgical inventory.


NFC is Coming

Samsung is trying to educate the masses about the benefits of NFC (near field communications).  Their NFC device will only work in conjunction with Android phones, however many predict that Apple’s next iPhone will have NFC in it.  NFC is the future and will become more prominent in mass culture in the next several years.
