The Enchanted Objects, #IoT by David Rose @C2MTL : design, human and magic!

 #C2Montreal started with David Rose and his Enchanted Objects, it was the perfect fit for me and very useful for my business Cellier Domesticus. David Rose, in my opinion, is a prophet in electronic engineering and digital technology, with his work at MIT Media Lab. Probably the most relevant speaker I have ever heard with a great vision for IoT (Internet of Things). From this moment, C2MTL became a succession of #RevElevation (my hashtag creation for « elevate your dreams » as Rêve means dream in french). As one of the 25 emerging entrepreneurs chosen by Stephen and Claudia Bronfman Fondation, I had in mind that my perspective would change, but as much in an hour, wow! He confirmed me that for any IT company, developers and innovation are much important than data storage or cable speed. David Rose was limpid, it’s not a question of connectivity but a question of design, being useful to human and giving a little magic in your life.

At Ambiant Devices,  many interesting projects like a light that changes colour with the weather, the market trend… A simple but very intelligent example was the umbrella, that will lights up when it’s going to rain. I also loved the Door Bell ringing when someone is reaching home within a few miles.
That was a very good example of Anticipation Power. Read the future that is really magic.


Another magical power, is teleportation. Kind of a sneak peek of this power : The google earth coffee table form Mr Rose was for sure a very explicit example. I was envious of having the same one to play with my son at home, to show him parts I know of France for example. 


EnchantedObjects you can find NEST as an Enchanted Thermostat :
Learns your routines to heat or cool your house at the right times.
What about our technology, is the Guardian Angel from Cellier Domesticus Enchanted ?


Our first concern was the DESIGN, even for the first prototype I wanted the sensor in a wood bottle to fit the wooden racks. No way I would put an antenna near my old Sauterne. Sure our product name is divine : Guardian Angel, but our connected bottle-sensor is acting like an alarm system through alerts and protect in real time the wine cellar. 
Then a cellar on the cloud, meaning you can access in real time temperature and humidity form any device is convenient and it is obvious that everything needs a cloud now.
Ok it’s good looking, useful and even necessary for wine investment, freedom of the cloud is cool, but monitoring temperature and humidity is not enchanted or magic.

The magic is in our patented method of controlling climate. You can now teleport a climate from any place in the world at any depth. Meaning that if you want to have the exact climate of a natural cellar in Champagne at 15 meters deep you can! Playing with climate like god by TELEPORTATION of terroir this is kind of enchanted. Best of all replicating natural seasons pattern you can save up to 70% of your energy cost. Even better than a Nest in your wine cellar!

Ultimately, the Guardian Angel also have an ANTICIPATION power, by letting you know how fast your wine cellar is aging each specific origin and climate. Thank you David Rose for giving us so much enlightenment on what we have been intuitively driven developing our product. I hope to be a good IoT/Jedi and Mr Rose you are a spiritual mentor!

May the magical force be with David and for a long time…

Quel vin garder ?

Pour Noël,
un vin de garde québécois.

Je sais, j’attaque un peu fort, à l’opposé de la guerre des tranchées entre les grands Bordeaux ou les Bourgognes!.
Mais c’est dans le mouvement de se faire plaisir avec notre terroir.
Les inventeurs des vins de glace, l’Allemagne chiffrent leur millésime 2008 à plus de 130$ à la SAQ les 375ml…
Il me semble donc tout à fait honnête d’offrir un coteau Rougemont 2011 du Québec à 27$.

Ou du minot des glaces à 16$ en 2008, ok 200ml, mais c’est moins de 20$ pour un grand plaisir et une fierté québécoise.
À faire vieillir par deux ou trois…sur chaque millésime. 
L’avantage par rapport aux chocolats, c’est que même si on vous en offre toutes les années , vous pourrez vous faire une verticale de millésimes!
J’avoue avec une humilité totale que je tiens ces produits de Jeremy d’Hauteville, ami oenologue, lors d’une dégustation au salon de Laval en novembre. Il me confirmait d’ailleurs faire vieillir quelques bouteilles avec de bons espoirs.


Alors achetez une bouteille de vin de glace ou de cidre de glace québécois, comme cadeau dans le bas de Noël.
