I had the pleasure to visit a full day conference by Internet World a few weeks back called Webbdagarna. This is a traveling conference in Sweden and each conference have a set topic which the talks in it is connected to. I left the event with five topics that I’d like to go through.
I continue my 750 words per day project and here is yet another text from one of those sessions. The Internet of things is one of the hottest buzz words of 2014 it seem but what is it all about?
The Internet of things is really the appliance of networked technology into every day appliances. An example of Internet of things that we have been using for quite some time is that as a runner I can have a heartbeat monitor on my body that is wirelessly connected to my wrist watch where a GPS is tracking my moves. This makes it so that when I have been walking about or been out on a run I can sync all this data and replay the route I took, see on a map where I’ve been, the times when I was at specific points and at the same time the exact heartbeat I had when I was there. I am using multiple small devices that can communicate with each others to give me more data out of things I do. But there is more!
