An Unexpected Capital for the Internet of Things: @ NationalGeographic

"Dublin aims to be the largest city to be fully covered in sensors. In total there will be about 200 gateways - at least one per square kilometer - each containing up to a dozen sensors, depending on specific needs. The pilot project will use Intel Quark technology developed in Ireland, which allows for low power usage."
