First of all, we must admit that even for us, this year`s IoT Village is a dream come true and a proof that Techsylvania has grown bigger and more complex since the first year, when the four days were allocated mainly for the conference and the hackathon. It is also an element we have eagerly wanted to bring to Techsylvania in the context of the Internet of Things as an emerging topic.
And the gadgets – you definitely have to try and win them! We have brought the best technologies from smart living, security and health that make your life easier and better.
