    There’s more than one way to get rid of batteries on an Ambient IoT device. Jeeva’s CEO explains their approach and how the technology was incubated by the University of Washington. How does this technology differ from that of Wiliot’s battery-free solution? It all comes down to backscatter, or reflective energy from existing RF signals.
    We’ll dive into all the applications for low power devices and much more on this week’s episode of the Mr. Beacon Podcast.

Terrible audio

I've really tried with this podcast. It seems like it has good content but I really don't know because the audio is so consistently bad. It's the worst sounding podcast I've ever heard. The producer really needs to get a handle on how to do the audio properly before continuing because the content is getting lost.
