Coming Now: The Internet of Things

Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a computing concept that describes a future where people, animals, household, and other physical objects are connected to the Internet, able to communicate with each other and their environment. It’s happening already. A thing, in the Internet of Things, can be a person with a heart monitor implant, a farm animal with a bio-chip transponder, or an automobile that has built-in sensor to alert the driver when tire pressure is low. Other examples of objects that can fall into the scope of Internet of Things include connected security systems, thermostats, electronic appliances, lights in household and commercial environments, alarm clocks, speaker systems, vending machines and more. As far as the reach of the Internet of Things, there are more than 12 billion devices that can currently connect to the Internet, and researchers estimate that by 2020 there will be 26 times more connected things than people.
