Samsung’s Galaxy Upcycling Program repurposes old phones as IoT devices #IoTuesday #IoT #Samsung
Samsung introduced a new recycling initiative at CES 2021 to convert your old Galaxy smartphone into an IoT device.
Inspiring people to reuse their devices at home or on the go provides an easy-to-achieve call to action that anyone can follow: old electronics are still useful for your everyday life…One fun example is how the Galaxy Upcycling team turned a Galaxy device into a “Smart Fish Tank” monitor. The monitor can feed fish and turn on an aquarium light by text message.
