Carbon Dioxide Kicks Off Java One

The keynote began this morning with the James Gosling and John Gage show and the usual cod(e) humour. They used the opportunity to show off the new JavaFX technology. The application was very cool. The entire Moscone Center is wired up with censors to monitor carbon dioxide and energy consumption, with the results of the monitoring visualised on screen. Although Sun provided very little information the company has long talked about an Internet of Things. That is an internet where all devices are connected to the network. From an energy demand management perspective monitoring in incredibly important. Hopefully Sun will start bringing environmental measurement technology to market.The more we monitor the more we can manage…

As Sun pointed out, in a room this size if the carbon dioxide saturation was three times higher it couldn’t support life. Sobering thought.
