One of the potential segment for devices that I am quite excited about, is the E Ink based large screen connected stylus touch e-reader. Provided it gets the perfectly smart implementation, it can unlock a world of being more productive reading and annotating all kinds of texts, in all kinds of fields of study, professionalism, creativity and curiosity. Reading on an E Ink display has already been proven by Kindle to be an awesome experience. Make use of customized Android for E Ink devices, WiFi and Bluetooth, and the potential for this device can be really great and for me is quite exciting. This is the Onyx N96ML, a 9.6" 1200x825 E Ink Pearl display with stylus touch and front light, running on the NXP Freescale i.MX6Solo Lite for E Ink, running Onyx's advanced customized Android UI for E Ink. You can buy it for $379 at Amazon.com

Kiss & Tell, an ARM Powered Shoe. Kiss & Tell was a concept that turned into a reality all done on ARM Technology. The idea, a shoe that can change the patterns on the straps based on the touch of a finger from an app on your mobile. For example, if you were invited to have tea with the Queen, the Union Jack could be displayed in seconds; if it was Valentine’s Day, hearts could be flashing. The sole, upper, and interchangeable heels were designed in Tinkercad on an ARM Powered Chromebook, printed using an ARM Powered 3D printer, and then spray painted with custom car paint. The circuitry and the LED designs were both done on Raspberry Pi 3. The shoe is powered by an ARM Cortex-M0+ that sits on an Arduino MKR1000 board that is hidden in the shoe’s upper.

Thomas Ensergueix is the ARM Cortex-M Product Manager, talks about the launch of ARM Cortex-M33 and ARM Cortex-M23, based on the latest ARMv8-M architecture with ARM TrustZone security and digital signal processing. You can read more at https://www.arm.com/products/processors/cortex-m/cortex-m33-processor.php and https://www.arm.com/products/processors/cortex-m/cortex-m23-processor.php
ARM launches their first ARM Cortex-M processors based on ARMv8-M architecture with ARM TrustZone technology,
IoT subsystem with ARM CoreLink system IP for fastest, lowest-risk path to silicon, Secure SoC designs fortified by TrustZone CryptoCell technology, Complete wireless solution with ARM Cordio radio IP for 802.15.4 and Bluetooth 5, Cloud-based service for secure management of IoT devices via ARM mbed Cloud, Optimized implementation on ARM Artisan IoT POP IP for the TSMC 40ULP process.
ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 are the first embedded processors based on the ARMv8-M architecture, bringing the proven secure foundation of ARM TrustZone to the most constrained IoT nodes. The majority of the top ten global MCU suppliers have already licensed one or both processors. Lead partners include Analog Devices, Microchip, Nuvoton, NXP, Renesas, Silicon Labs and STMicroelectronics.
The highly versatile Cortex-M33 features configuration options including a coprocessor interface, DSP and floating point computation, with increased performance and efficiency relative to Cortex-M3 and Cortex-M4. The Cortex-M23 takes security to the most constrained devices, building on the standard set by Cortex-M0+ as an ultra-low power microprocessor in a tiny footprint
The new Cortex-M processors are backwards compatible with ARMv6-M and ARMv7-M architectures for direct and fast porting, accelerating product development. TrustZone CryptoCell-312 fortifies the SoC with a rich set of security features protecting the authenticity, integrity and confidentiality of code and data.

ARM mbed announces the ARM mbed Cloud, a new standards- and cloud-based SaaS solution for secure IoT device management. It simplifies connecting, securing, provisioning and updating of devices across complex networks with optimizations built-in for energy-efficiency. Its an 'any device, any cloud' service for OEMs to scale IoT quickly. Bee Hayes-Thakore talks at ARM TechCon 2016 about mbed Cloud, mbed OS5.2, new developer tools, mbed Partnership, mbed Enabled and the new mbed Connect Shenzhen summit coming up on December 5th 2016.
Doug Anson, ARM IoT Solutions Architect talks about how ARM has worked with IBM to integrate ARM mbed with IBM Watson IoT platform on Bluemix Cloud Platform. The demo uses ARM Cordio Bluetooth sending a Google Physical Web URL to the Chrome Browser in the smartphone, creating an ability for the Chrome browser to interact with Bluetooth, enabling payment for parking meters by Bluetooth from the parking meter. Hooking up with the backend through IBM Watson, integrating with IBM's payment service and blockchain service.
