Why is it important?

The NHS hacks made many realised how vulnerable our system is. With a massive expansion of IoT (Internet of things), monitoring the security of each item in our kitchen and in our office is becoming increasingly difficult. This is why it’s more important than ever to make sure that these things are running of a secured and protected code. In smart homes, hacking a kettle gives the hacker access to the whole house.

Dronedeploy – Makes a 3D map out of your drone images

Why is it important?

Maps are some of the most important invention in human history. It gives us a location and an idea of where we’re heading. We can now build a whole 3D world together. It’s simple, you fly your drone, capture images and share it with everyone else. Dronedeploy takes it from there. The software puts it all together in a 3D-style crowd-sourced map, so no need for anyone to go around the world and try capturing every single street the way Google did.

Plum – Saving for millennials

Why is it important?

Let’s be honest – our generation took the hit. If you graduated at the same time as me, you probably remember your house turning into a jobcentre while you were trying scrap for rent. It’s not like we weren’t cut out of saving, we just never had a chance to learn. Plum understands this way of thinking and has designed an app that helps you save each time you spend. It analyses your spending, tells you how much to aim for and transfers the money to a separate account.
