Integrating Sensors and GPS and Perhaps Google?

Here’s the key quote for me from President and CEO of H3tec, Charles Christensen in the MarketingPilgrim blog post:

“I have been building and refining the H3 detector over the last eight years of experimentation. I started out building analog machines that weighed 200 lbs. This version of the detector is the fourteenth iteration of the device and it weighs less than 10 ounces. . . . The next version of the H3 detector will feature full mapping through GPS.”

He got the idea from Star Trek’s tricorder and the sensor, which detects substances up to two miles. These days apparently the company is talking to Google. The good news? The CEO likes “open:”

Christensen is also keeping the device open to other markets and devices: “I am now designing an ASIC chip set (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) that will be a miniaturized engine with APIs. . . . The APIs will be open to the world of designers so they can use the engine in any application and integrate this engine with existing devices, like the cell phone, weapons systems, and other hand held devices.”
