iBeacons (1)

Apple iBeacons

During this year, the thing that has stuck with me the most is the Apple iBeacons. Introduced in IOS 7 (2013), an iBeacon is a new type of location awareness. Using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), a device (this could be a phone) can be used to establish a region around an object. The technology was introduced to me through conferences, blog posts, and the possibilities of uses for this technology are endless.
