The Internet of Beer

Seluxit at Mobile World Congress

”What is the Internet of Beer?”

The question, accompanied with a smile, came again and again.

Seluxit’s stand attracted significant attention at the European Utility Week in Vienna earlier this month (#EUW15), amongst an oftentimes staid and solemn landscape.

The explanation? We were demonstrating work for our customer, Gardena of the Husqvarna Group. The project is a smart garden solution with a robotic mower, humidity sensor, watering computer (for a sprinkler) and gateway. The solution essentially enables you to schedule your mowing and sprinkling.

Demonstrating the mower was no problem. We just took out the blades. Demoing the sprinkler though required innovation. Hence, we pimped up the watering computer, using it to dispense beer from a keg we brought with us from Denmark.

Thanks to our friends at Midfyns Bryghus for generously sponsored the suds, Chili Klaus Ghost.

I am a nerdy person who loves going into depth in diverse areas of knowledge. The less I know about a matter, the more I can learn. I always find it exciting to meet people with a different area of expertise from mine. Solving challenging problems is one of the most exciting things to do and working in a group is always more rewarding than working alone. Working with engaged, driven people, women, men, old, young, different professions, cultures, and religions is a great experience. In my work as co-founder of Seluxit, I have gained in-depth knowledge in the field of the Internet of Things, from wireless communication protocols, over cryptology and security, to cloud services and user interfaces. Doing an IPO with Seluxit in 2018 has been a fascinating journey and taught me a lot about business plans, due diligence, PR/IR, and how to professionalize and grow a listed company. Next to my work, I engage very actively in climate change discussions. My main focus is on finding solutions and the effects that CO2 has on our human body. You can find my articles about this subject on Medium and some videos on YouTube. I enjoy running, playing piano, and socializing to balance my busy work life in my free time.
