Japan is quietly positioning itself for the next phase in digital technology: ubiquitous computing. A sign of things to come is T-Engine, arguably the most advanced ubiquitous computing platform in the world. T-Engine enables the distribution of software resources, including middleware developed on T-Kernel, its compact, real-time operating system. The platform also features standardized hardware and tamper-resistant network security. T-Engine enables developers to rapidly build ubiquitous… Expand
