This was brought to me attention by my colleague Simon Johns (Since68) via twitter. The internet of things is a phrase I only heard for the first time this December at the Autodesk University Keynote speech. (Now available on AU Virtual). As mentioned by Chris Anderson of Wired, Geekdad and DIYdrones.
The concepts of turning bits into atoms where we take direct control of devices and re-engineer consumer products to get them to do the things we, the consumer, want them to do. Rather than what the manufacturers wanted us to do with them. How many of you can get bluetooth to actually work and do with it what you actually wanted to?
Expect to see more posts from me on this exciting topic.
