myFirstFunction with the new Amazon AWS IoT Button. I have it configured on-click to email a dedicated gmail account, from there I have 3 zaps from Zapier looking for new emails with Single, Double, Long keywords and upon a match it tweets to a dedicated Twitter account @metaprinterIoT

I'll do something more interesting later, this was just a quick & fun project.

some issues:
1. zapper only runs once every 15min on the free account i'm using.
2. the AWS IoT button battery only lasts 1000 clicks.

Modified Power Wheels Project.
picked up a free, non-working 12v quad on junk day. over the span of a couple weeks i restored it from the ground up, gave it a new paint job, upgraded from 12v to 24v, even modified the front steering to make the toe setting adjustable... fun project and it goes fast.

Believe it or not I'm not done with this build and I've added much more, but what you are seeing is some kind of industrial complex with many moving pieces like the driveshafts and crane but also computer monitors, levers, guards, lights...and more! Very fun build! Look through my photo album to see other +LEGO projects and please share!

I've seen a lot of questionable methods some consultants and media companies are gauging the involvement of companies in the #IoT space like looking at Google Trends search data...really... So it was refreshing to see these two articles from +Forbes which focus on quantifiable data:

Top USA Companies Ranked by IoT Patent Filings:

Internet Of Things: IoT Tech Landscape And Rankings - New Report One of the most important aspects of any tech analysis is analyzing which players have quantifiably demonstrated their tech leadership in the relevant technological fields.
