The last straw unleashing the recent fury at Black Rook was an observation of a barely four-year-old kid using mobile phone applications to spam text family members, invade castles on his tablet video game, grow crops and feed starved virtual chickens on a virtual farm, and play a song full of questions relating to conversations of various animals, especially the fox. M2M solution developers demand justice and improvement of the quality of M2M solutions and wish to rejoin their brothers and sisters on the mobile phone application development side.
The state of the M2M industry can be summarized by two words: last century. The M2M solutions marketed by cell companies resemble technology from the 1990's. Many M2M applications simply cannot approach features such as photo, video, audio, or GPS. The heartbreaking truth is that M2M applications are only able to send data to a central server and are unable to talk to other devices in the machine or the human realm.
Black Rook M2M developers are outraged at their very own M2M community for supporting deceptions such as “The M2M community is not ready to support such features” and “The transition to the 21st century is too expensive”. Currently, on board vehicle computers are allowed to talk to a central server but prohibited to say “Hi” to a car in the next parking spot. Presently, the M2M solution development process resembles a culinary chef obliged to forge knives, make pots, and grow the produce, in addition to preparing a meal. The day is coming, however, when the merit of the M2M solution is based on the application features instead of the fundamental tools and support.
“We cannot keep quiet and pretend that temporary fixes such as communication latency reduction or the improvement of data transmission rates can bring M2M development into the 21st century,” said Roman Kolesnikov, a developer at Black Rook. “We have departed from the traditional M2M solution development and have focused our efforts on the future of M2M technology. The time is coming when M2M devices will put four-year-old kids in a state of admiration. Such a thing is difficult to picture, yet we can imagine a vehicle on-board computer giving a heads up to another passing vehicle about an accidentally dropped teddy bear. I admit that gaining the admiration or even respect of a four-year-old kid towards the M2M solution is next to impossible to achieve. However, our work is a step in the right direction towards bridging the gap between two not so distant worlds – M2M solutions and mobile phone applications.”
