With every passing year, we discover better technologies and new segments which didn’t previously exist are born. The word IoT or Internet of Things didn’t hold much meaning a decade ago but now, it is a segment of technology that is paving the way of our future. Something wonderful can be achieved when devices have the ability to communicate with each other, and their creators.
To realise the dream of an interconnected world, the Delft startup Nowi created a tiny chip that is aimed at solving one of the most difficult problems in the IoT space. The most special bit about this integrated circuit is that it harvests energy on its own from its surroundings instead of relying on external, conventional means of energy. This is nothing short of a breakthrough in the field of IoT as it means that the integrated circuit developed by the startup can live forever.
