Among the most important markets within IoT is the automotive industry, where the connected car is already taking off. The IoT-enabled vehicles weave together a suite of integrated devices, which offer many benefits, like improved safety and security, a personalized user experience (Spotify playing your favourite song when you open the door), and a transformed way we think about vehicle ownership.

a small Canadian start-up is developing a novel technological breakthrough to help solve this pressing problem. In fact, Vancouver-headquartered Pure Energy Minerals (TSX.V: PE) (US OTCQB: PEMIF) aims to play a key role in making the electrification of our energy supplies affordable.

There could be 30,000 EVs on Canada's roads by next summer.
And Elon Musk is very happy about it.
Tesla gets 115,000 orders for Model 3 in one day.
Tesla has inspired a forward-thinking lifestyle that advocates change in the way people perceive driving. Sure, there are numerous well-received all-electric cars on the market, but there's one primary difference: Tesla's mission statement is centred around the growth of electric vehicles.
Just guess how much it costs. We dare you.

It can be argued that there is a shortage of brilliant and motivated philanthropists that shoulder a relentless drive to achieve life's most inconceivable aspirations. There are many to look up to -- from Stephen Hawking to Paul Allen -- but for now lets talk about two such inventors. One is Elon Musk, and the other is, well, a fictional version of Elon Musk.

It's clear that as a society we need innovative new firms to step in and help solve our climate, health and social problems, while at the same time creating a profit for investors and jobs for all of us. The important question is: how can we assure that this happens?

Tesla now has enough charging stations throughout North America to allow Tesla owners to drive from Vancouver to San Diego, from Maine to Miami or from New York to Los Angeles without worrying about battery range. There will be no fuel cost along the way, because Musk is committed to making superchargers free for all Tesla owners.
Premier Kathleen Wynne's solution to the transportation infrastructure problem is to spend a whopping $50 billion of taxpayer money over the next 25 years to build an expansive rail network. By 2040, Toronto may finally have the subways that other cities built nearly 200 years earlier. But can you imagine what the world will look like in 2040? We are on the cusp of explosive new technologies that will revolutionize how we commute. Innovative tech startups are fixing the problems we currently have with cars: that they pollute too much, are too expensive for many, and congest our overcrowded roads. Here are three notable examples of ideas and companies that will change transportation as we know it.
Canada's economy has lost its balance. Trouble looms. Those are not words you will hear from Prime Minister Stephen Harper but it is the grim reality of the unsustainable economic ethos of his Conservative government.
Instead of the telling us the truth, the government is spending unprecedented gobs of our money to mislead us about the health of the country with the Canada Action Plan advertising campaign saturating the airwaves. In reality, our petro premier has transformed a balanced country into a petro-state that is "hollowing out" the economy.
A century ago a computer wasn't a machine -- it was a job title. It referred to people who spent their days doing arithmetic. Then processors were created that took over the role, and society adjusted the word to a new meaning. In today's rapidly transforming economy it's important to adjust more quickly.
Great ideas rarely start out as great. But with time, with hard work, and with a little luck...they eventually get there. n a nutshell, we live in a world of science fiction, where the unthinkable is mere reality.
The business model is to really empower a nation and see where that goes. We're putting in charging stations at smaller communities and businesses to allow people who want to look at another alternative whether it's fully electric or electric extended range to be able to drive and to be able to go places and become more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable.
Arianna Huffington recently tweeted a great St. Exupery quote: "It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye." That truth is sort of a paradox about art. The artist is always trying to capture something they can see with their hearts, but is not necessarily seen by the naked eye
Tesla, the pioneering electric vehicle manufacturer made the news recently and it wasn't about their cars or their flamboyant founder, Elon Musk. No, Tesla made the news because it paid off $465 million in government loans nine years early. Tesla is also estimating that it will sell 21,000 units of its Model S, its family sedan, in 2013.
Easily-available software, net-based social media tools, guts, and a healthy ignorance of "how it should be" have now made every musician a producer, every producer a label, every craftsman an international marketer...and every current international marketer scared as hell.
