Beco offers first battery free beacon, which can run indefinitely on existing lighting

We’re several years into the beacon and “internet of things” era and only in the past year are we starting to move beyond pilot-stage implementations. Beacons have been most associated with retail in-store marketing (e.g., offers) but they have a much wider array of uses.Despite their utility, beacons face a number of challenges. Rolling them out and managing them at scale across multiple locations is one. Another perhaps more mundane, but important, issue is battery life.Most beacons are battery powered and for that reason can be placed virtually anywhere in physical locations. But in large-scale deployments there might be thousands of beacons in hundreds of locations, or vice-versa. Battery replacement becomes a potentially significant cost over time.Enter a Boston-based company called Beco. The company has developed a patented, “battery-free” beacon that “harvests” energy from existing light fixtures and can run indefinitely. There is LED location-aware “smart lighting” (with inclu…

Facebook now lets broadcasters restrict their Live audiences by age, location, gender

By default if you’re broadcasting using Facebook Live, you’re doing so publicly for anyone to see. At least until now.On Thursday Facebook quietly added a new option for some broadcasters to restrict who can tune into a Live broadcast, which the company announced in a blog post published on its developer site.The audience restrictions option appears to be available only to people who post their Live streams to Facebook using the social network’s API (application programming interface), i.e. media companies, professional creators and brands using software to send the stream shot using fancy cameras or game- and screen-casting tools. A Facebook spokesperson has not responded to a question sent earlier on Friday asking whether the audience restrictions will be made available to people livestreaming within Facebook’s app, a.k.a. normal people.According to the guidelines posted in Facebook’s developer documentation, broadcasters will be able to limit their Live audiences by location, time …

Two new projects target ads at your car

The Ocean campaign Two new and separate advertising projects are based around the idea that “you are what you drive.”The new efforts — one in locations around the UK, the other near Tokyo — are identifying individual car types and directing ads to the implied interests of the driver or passengers. They are the newest additions to a growing category that recently added a campaign where Dannon Yogurt ads on digital billboards are displayed according to four levels of traffic speeds.This week, London-based media owner Ocean launched its first campaign — created by the ad agency Publicis for the new Renault M├ęgane car — employing its vehicle recognition tech for contextual advertising.In the campaign, which follows 12 months of testing and development, digital billboards at the exit of a traffic circle near a shopping center in Holland Park in west London show messages directed at cars stopped at a traffic light. (See photo on the top of this page.)The images of the front, stopped cars in …
