FOMA Ubiquitous Module from DoCoMo

NTT DoCoMo, the Japanese company which isn’t afraid of innovation, has announced the FOMA Ubiquitous Module. It’s a cellular module which can be put in, well, pretty much anything. Any machine that could somehow use a cellular connection to improve itself now has the opportunity.

The module is self-contained. All you have to do is put the module into a device that will support it and the internet is just seconds away. Some of the suggested uses from DoCoMo include vending machines, taxis, inventory controls and information terminals. With access that is as easy as this claims to be, the possibilities are almost unlimited.

Of course, DoCoMo won’t stop at just selling you the Module. They will also be selling service plans, such as the Ubiquitous S plan, which will allow for 800 packets per month at a cost of about $7. Japan is so far ahead of us with their smart vending machine technology. I hope some of it starts making its way over here.
