MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Legacy Productions' ZooStand (http://www.zoostand.com/) has its sights set on becoming the premier platform for the Internet of Everything. A place where people can manage their web-connected things, ZooStand is emerging from beta testing in time for a November public launch. The development team is now courting investors as part of maximizing the platform's potential.
Every piece of content on ZooStand will be user generated. People can quickly, easily add things, definitions and relationships to the platform. To encourage participation, ZooStand will award points for contributing and stage weekly contests with special giveaways.
As more things acquire machine intelligence, they will become directly involved in ZooStand, posting status updates, communicating with other things, and generally solving problems before their people are aware of them. The most well known example might be the refrigerator telling the smartphone's shopping list that it needs milk. ZooStand will become the platform where all of these interactions are hosted.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) is no longer the stuff of science fiction – today, more "things" are connected to the Internet than there are people on Earth. Cisco Systems suggests that IoE represents a $17 trillion market. An efficient online platform like ZooStand is among the last pieces need to complete the IoE puzzle.
ZooStand has the potential to save people time and money. Instead of buying something new, the platform lets users know if they or one of their friends already owns it. Most people have things that for most of the year do nothing but take up space – ZooStand solves this problem in an elegant way.
"Sometimes you go in a friend's home and see something you would love to borrow, and it's just sitting there on a shelf collecting dust," explained Mark Meikle, Creator of ZooStand. "Asking to borrow it can be awkward, but ZooStand removes that awkwardness and makes it easy for friends to share things they have."
Activity on ZooStand today will revolve around organizing, buying, selling and sharing things. In the near future, the platform will add new functions as the Internet of Everything becomes more fully realized. Communication with RFID tags, an API for software developers, a ZooStand marketplace and Big Data analytics for enterprises are just a few of the forthcoming additions that users can expect.
