EZ-Robot showcased their EZ-B V5 which is a which is a custom integrator for Intel Joule. On the other hand, Design Mill showcased Torch – a mixed reality interactive gaming table which using Intel Joule as well as the Intel RealSense camera along with Windows 10 IoT Core. This is a great new start to make the IoT products a bit more accessible to the end users.
