Highlights from IoT613

Ottawa’s Internet of Things conference was a success by all accounts. The two-day event, drew over 300 Attendee’s and included two workshops on Designing for IoT, an expert speaker series and engaging booths from Ottawa’s most innovative startups and companies.

The Building of the IoT613 Visuals

As a presenting sponsor for IoT613, we were in the trenches the week leading up to the event prepping many of the large visual attractions, including the knowledge forest, giant Makey Wall and Internet connected fish.

Each of these ideas came from the D1 Makerlab – our summer internship program, and will be featured at Ottawa’s Maker Faire as well. Check-out some of the photos from our setup for IoT613 below:


How the Makey Wall was Built:

From concept to fully functioning prototype, the Design 1st and summer D1 MakerLab team worked efficiently to get the Makey Wall ready for IoT 613! Check-out some of the photos of our progress:

Designing for IoT: Workshop

Design 1st also hosted a half-day workshop at the event with UX partners Akendi called "Designing for IoT". The workshop featured an internet connected octopus that sensed the chlorine and ph of water, and participants were worked through the entire design process.

You can watch the workshop below:
