Visionect enables developers and companies to build the next generation of connected e-paper products
Thursday, July 24, 2014
Press release from the issuing company
With its V-Platform and V-Tablets, Visionect jump-starts the revolution of new ePaper products
Visionect's connected e-readers are thin clients that hold no data natively. They come in multiple sizes and are rugged enough to go anywhere with users, including underwater. Visionect is so confident in its tech that these devices feature no physical buttons — not even an on/off switch. There's nothing in between a user and their e-paper apps.
Here are some examples of how Visionect's platform, software and devices have already been used:
Ring bell for service: Visionect used an off-the-shelf Internet of Things controller with its V-Tablet, V-Platform and server software to create a fully operational, e-paper-powered digital door lock keypad for its offices in a single day.
Everyone's guided tour: Visionect designed an application that lets museums use e-paper tablets asinteractive information plaques. The V-Tablet's long battery life, high visibility and excellent durability makes it perfect for such heavy-use scenarios.
Would you like fries with that? E-ink tablets make for better tabletop ordering than other tablets thanks to their ruggedness (spilled drinks are no problem) and long battery life, and Visionect's V-Platform and server software can provide restaurant owners with instant feedback and analytics — and ensure customers get their food on time.
Flappy paper: Flappy Bird's explosive popularity was an inexplicable and mystifying phenomenon, but it was easy for Visionect to port a browser-based clone of the game to its V-Tablets. In fact, they did it in under an hour — despite 24 minutes lost to "testing."
Visionect's V-Platform uses the industry standard WebKit engine to ensure that if an app runs in a browser it runs on Visionect devices. The company's Linux-based server software lets developers monitor their customers in real time, including live views of all connected devices. And Visionect's e-paper devices, including pre-made V-Tablets and standalone e-paper panels for custom integrations, are versatile enough for any application.
Development packages start at $329 and include professional support and flexible custom solutions. Developers and customers can head to http://www.visionect.com to get started.
