This Techtonic Tuesday, find out about mesh networks, horizontal connectivity, and smart location awareness—technology that is bringing people and communities together.
So much of technology today is about negating the need for people to go out into the world. They can have stuff delivered. They can look at an art exhibit online. They can look at a virtual tour on a website.
It’s time we had tech that encouraged people to have some real world experiences! That’s where bluetooth mesh networks come in.
Bluetooth mesh networks like Loud-Hailer’s BUKI network connects people interactively so that they will go out into the world! These new networks encourage people to see that art exhibit in person, visit a park, and perhaps discover other places and things nearby that they otherwise would not have ever known if they had stayed at home.
Jack Chen is the CEO and a Co-Founder of Loud-Hailer, which builds citywide Bluetooth mesh networks to strengthen and build communities.
Jack has always had a passion for technology. As co-inventor of the idea for Loud-Hailer, he’s able to merge his experience working as an attorney and Wall Street analyst with networks, systems and data. As the CEO of Loud-Hailer, Inc., he’s involved in all aspects of hardware and software design and development, working closely with every member of the team.
Loud-Hailer’s mission is to give people who want to learn and actively engage with all that is around them the tools to do so easily. Loud-Hailer sees technology’s potential to encourage people to physically explore and interact with what is around them rather than create digital feedback loops that reduce human interaction.
