SPOT
Developed by Microsoft, Smart Personal Object Technology or SPOT, was supposed to make every day personal and household objects more useful: an alarm clock with traffic and weather information, refrigerator magnets offering sports scores and so on. In reality, SPOT found its way into a few forgettable products, including watches and a line of coffee makers.
