We’re Celebrating 12 Days of Tech!
We kicked off the holidays finding Nice solutions to 12 Naughty technology problems.
What do Santa’s elves and Cypress’ problem solvers have in common? They know what will land you on the Naughty and Nice List. This year we made a list (and checked it twice), highlighting some of our favorite technologies. If you haven’t been following us on Twitter at @CypressSemi, here’s a recap of the 12 technologies that will get you on our Nice List:
- A smart irrigation system created with our PSoC Pioneer Kit so you don’t forget to water your plants when you travel for the holidays.
- A smart dog watcher developed using our PSoC Analog Coprocessor Pioneer Kit to help keep an eye on your furry friends.
- Ikea’s smart lighting collection, TRADFRI, to conserve energy while you let your holiday lights twinkle.
- A smart feeder that works with Amazon Alexa to keep your pets happy and healthy.
- Nest’s smart thermostat to keep you warm while managing your home’s energy consumption.
- Fitbit’s Ionic wearable to keep you on track with your fitness goals so you can enjoy your holiday desserts guilt-free.
- Kwikset’s smart Kevo lock so you don’t forget to lock your door before holiday shopping.
- Nintendo’s Switch for an interactive gaming experience wherever you go.
- HidrateSpark’s smart water bottle to keep you hydrated all season long.
- Arlo’s smart home security camera to keep on eye on who’s kissing underneath the mistletoe.
- Anker’s PowerCore+ portable battery so your devices are always charged and you never miss a moment.
- A brand new Mercedes-Benz with Intelligent Drive technology that detects a range of dangers to keep you and your family safe as you head from one holiday party to the next.
