Carriots Lego 04

From one Expo to another, from San Franciso to Barcelona

A few weeks ago we were at GigaOm Mobilize event in San Francisco where the trend was “Everything Connected”. You can watch the recorded sessions here and see how the Internet of Things is changing many businesses and companies, from General Electric to Farmers in the US.

It was our first show in USA and had some troubles with the logistics and the US customs. Our beautiful Smart City demo made with Legos and a RaspberryPi was deconstructed during the shipping and delayed by insufficient information on an import form. It is not that easy to declare this shipping contain!

This how our package arrived:

But after just one hour of Lego assembly work, the result was this:
