"Why is hardware hot right now? The hype around wearables and the quantified self/health tracking movement is certainly encouraging more device makers to get busy. But on an underlying technology level, it’s the next-gen low-power flavour of Bluetooth – Bluetooth Low Energy (or BLE) – that gets the credit as the enabler of this connected device boom.

BLE is allowing a new wave of physically minded startups to build devices that can fly for long enough to become disruptors. BLE ... allows makers to build interesting devices that can keep communicating for up to a year on a single charge (in some cases). And that’s a game changer. Add in ubiquitous smartphone ownership and it’s a perfect storm."
