Libelium’s Fifty-Four Days of Smart City Christmas

If you saw the movie “Forrest Gump” all those years ago you may remember the scene where Gump’s friend lists off all the things a chef can do with shrimp—the crustacean that is. What’s the connection to MESH Cities? Recently the Spanish smart city appliance firm Libelium launched a device that gives developers new ways to solve the big problems facing the cities of today.
What’s more, Libelium even offers a cook book of applications just in time for Christmas. Here they are for our MESH Cities readers:
