Blue Marble, Inc.’s Intelligent Irrigation System for the Internet of Things won first place for best new technology at the 2015 the San Diego Inventors Forum Contest!
While designing the Blue Marble system many, many, choices had to be made while considering cost, time, technology, environment, marketing and performance. Below are some of the reasons why we did not do what others did! Temporarily Unavailable. Paul F. Sabadin, President and Founder of Blue Marble, Inc.

“They’re only sprinklers!” Yeah. Right! I worked for so many years in hi-tech that I was certain the design and manufacture of the Blue Marble system would be a piece of cake! Not so fast. In hi-tech irrigation, you’ve got almost all the challenges of engineering and physics to deal with: Hydraulics, pressures, flows, seals, and forces Electro-magnetics in the […]
OK. This is a technical tip for those who might be starting to embark on an IoT product venture. I have seen many people immediately choose the fundamentally WRONG technology from the start for their IoT product. I don’t want you to start the journey on your left foot! If you are just starting to think about an IoT product […]
System designers integrating radio frequency IoT technologies into their products have a large, fragmented and, sometimes, confusing set of communications stacks and standards from which to choose. In a previous article, I compared several IoT communications standards, quickly leaving some of them behind and concentrating on the differences between BlueTooth Low Energy (BLE) and IoTMesh (IEEE 802.15.4e with IETF 6LoWPAN, […]
