Edwin the Duck is the coolesst baby tech toy I've used and it just dropped to an all time low price of $50. Not sure if they are coming out with a new one, or it's just ridiculous pre-black friday deals

He's a waterproof bluetooth speaker w/ integrations to play games, light up a variety of colors, quack, act as a water temperature monitor that alerts you when it gets too cold or hot

My only complaint is that there's no SDK, I'm really tempted to start hacking on it and see what can be done, since he has sensors to detect taps on each wing and his butt. As well as shaking and other movements.

The best part is that it's not on of those rubber ducks that let water get inside and get gross after a while.

The baby loves it too.

Also, I bought this a few weeks ago and Amazon won't adjust the price, I have to buy it and return the old one. It's free returns, so it just boggles my mind why they won't adjust the price. I was totally happy with the old price, but I don't want to just give them $35 They actually lose more by forcing me to do this. Their customer service has dropped so much lately.

Working on your Weaknesses!
Up until about a week ago I was a man without a goal race
for this fall and my racing plans were ALL over the place.  Basically every week I was telling someone a
different race it would be fun to peak for.

We’ve expanded our testing program to a total of four U.S. cities over the last several months, so it’s time to add more vehicles to our fleet. We’re planning to more than double our fleet with the initial addition of about 100 new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans, and we hope the first few will be on the road by the end of this year.

This collaboration with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is the first time we’ve worked directly with an automaker to create our vehicles. FCA will design the minivans so it’s easy for us to install our self-driving systems, including the computers that hold our self-driving software, and the sensors that enable our software to see what’s on the road around the vehicle. The minivan design also gives us an opportunity to test a larger vehicle that could be easier for passengers to enter and exit, particularly with features like hands-free sliding doors.

In the coming months, our team will collaborate closely with FCA engineers. This experience will help both teams better understand how to create a fully self-driving car that can take you from A to B with the touch of a button. Collaborations like these are an important part of realizing the potential of self-driving technology to improve road safety and make transportation more accessible for millions of people.

Our own Dave Meeker talks VR content creation with MediaPost.
With the immersive nature of VR, brands may have a better opportunity to design engaging and more interactive content, yet best results may come from re-imagining how to frame experiences rather than adapting current practices to the new format. "IoT Daily" caught up with Dave Meeker, VP of Isobar U.S., about creating content for virtual reality.
