Innovate with Twilio.
We’ve partnered with Twilio to help developers rapidly accelerate the development of new narrowband IoT devices. Our developer kit offers everything you need to start exploring the possibilities of NB-IoT.
America’s first-ever NB-IoT Hackathon.
In partnership with Twilio and Microsoft Azure, more than 100 new and seasoned developers descended on the T-Mobile HQ to spend 24 nonstop hours designing, troubleshooting, and experimenting with NB-IoT. Here are the ideas that came out on top.
First place: ShipShop
About 33% of global fresh produce is tossed due to spoilage. The team behind ShipShop developed an idea for a solution that could potentially leverage the capabilities of NB-IoT and e-commerce to create opportunities for shippers to sell produce at risk of spoilage.
Second place: WildFox
Inspired to act by the many recent California forest fires, the WildFox team developed a concept for a solution that demonstrates the use of NB-IoT sensors for temperature, humidity, and GPS data. These sensors could potentially help scientists predict forest fires, and more.
Third place: Curieosity
Thousands of radioactive sources are lost every year in the US, but NB-IoT sensors could potentially help account for them. Team Curieosity’s idea for an IoT solution would employ GPS, proximity, temperature, and humidity sensors over T-Mobile’s NB-IoT network to help increase national safety and security.
