The startup explains that it is like a DNS for the internet of things, but what it really sounds like is a way to associate your identity, needs and desires with your devices without going out to the internet. The idea is that then, when you enter a place that can read your device, it can share info such as,”don’t track me” or “I’m allergic to peanuts.”
