As a big fan of wearable technology, I am very happy to see a Spanish start-up making it to the finals of Intel's Make It Wearable Challenge. The team of First V1sion will be presenting their prototype for the grand finale on November, 3. The project is a sports broadcast patented system that consists of a camera integrated in the athlete's competition shirt for a broadcast. There is also a built-in Intel Edison chip that measures heartbeat and other important biometrics that can avoid sudden deaths. Indeed, there is innovation in Spain and I wish the team the best of luck.

So here are my three reasons as a software vendor to sell in Mexico.

Arduino Zum by BQ ReadersAs many of you know, I have a passion for robotics and the "Internet of Things". Thus I was so happy to receive my fantastic Arduino ZUM board by BQ Readers. It is a board that incorporates additional features that will be appreciated by both professionals and amateur fans. It is worth mentioning Bluetooth, 3A input (that allows a larger number of peripherals) and a set of additional pins, extremely useful for the design phase.
