In a newly established partnership between Atari and Sigfox, one of the world’s most recognized right-brained creativity factories joins forces with a global leader in left-brain calculation facility. According to Brian Heater, Hardware Editor at TechCrunch, Atari has been on a mission to reestablish itself the trend-setting, standard raising company it was once in its prime (ever since its bankruptcy fiasco in 2013). Primarily, this meant mobile game play innovation and casino deals; however, the company may have just hit the jackpot in its newly found relationship with “the world’s leading providers of dedicated communications service for the Internet of Things”, Sigfox.
The Atari-Sigfox hybrid line will include energy and money efficient home, pet, and lifestyle devices targeted both at mass market consumers and charity organizations. These devices will be able to communicate where they are and their status back to their owners through patented Sigfox technology. “Our network bridges the virtual and physical worlds simply, reliably, and inexpensively,” said the CEO of Sigfox, Le Moan. He went on to commend Atari’s vision and to declare that the “collaboration will launch a new dimension to gaming, while supporting features that are limited only by the imagination.”
