We’re not in your phone anymore: Meet Dorothy

The yellow brick road to the Internet Of Things is becoming a lot more fun, as we leave the realm of technology novelty and start to create experiences based on human metaphors. Such is the case of Dorothy, a physical trigger making your phone smarter.

By clicking your heels, you can get an Uber ride, make a dummy phone call or text your location to friends.  The device, created by iStrategyLabs, is powered by  LightBlue Bean, an Arduino micro-controller with a built in Bluetooth chip, accelerometer, and coin cell battery and pairs with an iOS app.
