From redefining thermal dynamics to sculpting acoustic landscapes and bending light with precision, metamaterials stand at the forefront of technological innovation. Let's embark on a technical exploration of metamaterials, delving into their historical trajectory, intricate applications, and the transformative potential they harbor for the future of electronic systems. Metamaterials, an amalgamation of metals, plastics, and other composite materials, derive their nomenclature from the Greek "meta," signifying "beyond." Metamaterials are artificially engineered materials designed to have properties that are not found in naturally occurring substances. These materials are created by arranging atoms or structures in specific patterns to achieve desired electromagnetic properties.

Swoją historią podzielił się z nami Daniel Majchrzycki. W marcu 2017 Daniel przyszedł na Akademickie Targi pracy i chociaż mało słyszał o firmie Grinn, postanowił dowiedzieć się więcej. Pracownicy na stoisku zauważyli jego wiedzę i chęć rozwijać się w dziedzinie elektroniki, więc skontaktowaliśmy się z nim od razu po Targach, a już w Czerwcu Daniel zaczął pracę z nami.
We often say that working at Grinn is fun; we emphasize the special friendly atmosphere in the company, our traditions, and joint holidays.

Dzisiaj rozmawialiśmy z Piotrem Twardoszem, który pracuje w Grinn jako Hardware Designer już ponad 6 lat. Poznał firmę Grinn podczas Akademickich Targów Pracy Politechniki Wrocławskiej, gdzie Grinn był wystawcą. Piotr wspomina, że wrażenie na nim zrobiło urządzenie, które znajdowało się na stoisku jako przykład. Był to technologiczny sprzęt wykorzystywany w nanotechnologicznych laboratoriach – interferometr. Po rozmowie z przedstawicielami firmy podjął decyzje, żeby aplikować właśnie tu, a kilka tygodni później już zaczął swój pierwszy dzień jako Hardware Designer.
The whole world follows the Olympic Games and evaluates the chances of the athletes of their favorite team. We follow with no less interest the technological solutions in use in the Olympic village and at the competition sites. So, what interesting things met us in Beijing in 2022?

In 2021, many exciting events have taken place. Let's take a look at the most important of them. The year began with the news of a reduction in car production due to a shortage of semiconductors. In one of our previous articles, we analyzed the main reasons that led to this. You can read it here: link. Initially affecting the automotive industry, the shortage has spread to other manufacturers of machinery and electronic components. Naturally, the IoT industry has also suffered.
Smart Agriculture is a term used for the introduction of Internet of Things technologies, sensors, robots, and artificial intelligence into farms. The main purpose of using Smart Agriculture is to improve the quality of manufactured products, as well as increase productivity. By 2025, it is predicted that the global smart agriculture market will be valued at $15.3 billion, which is a three-fold increase compared to 2016.
Cybersecurity experts at the Singapore University of Technology and Design have published a report on 16 identified vulnerabilities in Bluetooth software which pose a threat to billions of devices running on various platforms. The list is called BrakTooth - from the Norwegian word brak (crash).
You know that most startups fail, and we know why. In this article, you will find the most common reasons, and we will give tips on how to avoid failure.
Manufacturers of electronic equipment around the world are faced with a shortage of microchips and other electronic components. The first noticeable signals were back in 2017 when, with a sharp increase in demand, suppliers could not cope with the number of orders. It was not possible to increase production capacity so quickly, and they simply postponed the delivery time.
Medicine is one of the most promising areas for the IoT; an industry where IoT solutions can radically change lives of patients and quality of services provided. In this article, we will talk about trends and areas of medicine where the implementation of IoT solutions will be most significant.

The next part of the story of the creation of the Yoli game. We took a pause at the moment when we suggested that the client implement Bluetooth technology, as this gave him an idea that turned the entire concept of the toy around and took it to a qualitatively new level.
The first part of the story of the creation of the Yoli game. Yoli is a bridge between the world of new technologies, interactivity, and traditional board games. In January of last year, we met with a client who showed us a prototype of an interactive Arduino-based board game for children. We immediately saw many interesting possibilities for implementation in this simple demo.

The IoT is so firmly entrenched in our lives that sometimes we do not even notice its work. We draw up reports based on the readings from sensors thousands of kilometers away. The digital camera has noticed movement in the backyard and has sent you a notification to make sure it is just a neighbor's dog. Want to know what mechanisms are behind these modern conveniences?
Wouldn't it be great to have a hot espresso waiting for you at home and be able to make it simply through an application while you are en route? Wouldn't you like to control all applications in your home remotely? IoT is turning into an increasingly developing point of discussion both in the working environment and outside of it. It's an idea that not just can affect how we live, but also how we work.
