The 'Wireless and Batteryless' Panasonic Switch is an IoT Innovation

At this year's CEATEC 2016 in Japan, one of the most impressive and forward-thinking IoT gadgets to be revealed is the 'Wireless and Batteryless Panasonic Switch.'

While there are plenty of systems out there that make it possible for a homeowner to turn on the lights without physically touching a light switch, this device features technology that sets it far apart from others. The innovative Panasonic Switch is motion-activated, which means that it detects motion and is capable of turning it into electricity.

This Wireless and Batteryless Panasonic Switch could be used to power on everything from desktop computers and lamps, while also being much simpler to operate than many complicated smart home systems that require specific gestures to activate controls.
