Wiliot Announce Initial Partners

Wiliot have announced their initial set of partners. Wiliot is a new Bluetooth beacon that looks like a wafer thin NFC sticker but actually uses (wireless) energy harvesting with a very low power System on a Chip (SoC). This brings down the size and cost to allow integration into manufactured goods.

The initial partners are symbiotic in that they will help provide for initial rollout. They include Avery Dennison for tag production, SATO for tag printing, Evrythng for a cloud backend, Aruba for integration into WiFi and Fanstel and Estimote for gateways.
