The real value that the Internet of Things creates is at the intersection of gathering data and leveraging it; it’s the one that’s going to give us the most disruption as well as the most opportunity over the next few years. And one of the biggest advantages of having smart technologies is the ability to predict and prevent problems from anywhere.
Imagine a house, where the sprinklers take orders from moisture sensors. Coffeepots that talk to alarm clocks. Thermostats that talk to motion sensors.
Your home is your heaven, where you spend a lot of your time. Yet the tasks involved in keeping it clean and functional can seem overwhelming at times. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a little help with the chores? Isn’t it about time it got to know you better? Welcome to the Future.
Imagine a room where lights, stereo, and the window shade are not just controlled from a central station but adjust to your preferences before you even walk in.
Think of a gym where the machines know your workout as soon as you arrive.
Consider a hybrid car that can maximize energy efficiency by drawing down the battery as it nears a charging station.
What, we’re seeing is the dawn of an era when the most mundane items in our lives can talk wirelessly among themselves, performing tasks on command, giving us data we’ve never had before.
The power of Big Data: 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone.
When everything from jet engines to soft drink vending machines to car seats have sensors in them, we will see an explosion of data the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
The best part is that, instead of using devices to deliberately measure our activity in the world, perhaps sensors could pick up our activity and measure it as we move through the world and interact with various sensors. In other words, world around us gains the ability to perceive us, rather than wearable sensors trying to figure out what’s going on in our environment by taking a continuous measure of us.

For all the technology we have today, it’s still hard for us to answer many questions and it seems sensors will change that.
This is the something I’ve been “dreaming” about since I got to learn about technology. Where my house would know when I’m home or I’m gone. When I go to sleep, when I wake up and adjust itself accordingly
With technology intersecting just about every area of our lives, here’s a look at new concept, giving us a peek into what vision is for future of cooking in kitchen. Underneath a marble countertop an induction cooktop with smart sensors and embedded displays. The large surface dynamically detects when pots and pans are placed atop it and heats them accordingly. At your fingertips there’s also a control panel that gives access to online recipes, +Pinterest boards, weather, and your Spotify playlists.
Imagine, if you’re able to activate the dishwasher from your smartphone while you’re at the office! Not only do these items attract attention for their innovative capabilities, they provide a glimpse into the future of appliances. Thanks to a recent onslaught of smart appliances, home life could get quite a bit easier in the near future.
There is no one sector where the Internet of Things will make the biggest impact; in fact, it will disrupt every industry imaginable, including agriculture, energy, security, disaster management, and healthcare, just to name a few. It’s going to create disruption and opportunity in every imaginable field, and it’s entirely up to you whether you’re going to be one of the disrupted or the disruptors.
