You’ve probably started to hear the term “Internet of Things” being thrown around a lot lately. If you’re not sure what it means, don’t worry, you’re not alone. This video can help you understand.
This video from Linus at the Techquickie YouTube channel explains the basics of what the Internet of Things is:
The Internet of Things is the name given to the interconnection of everyday devices from appliances in your home to automobiles with built in sensors… essentially it is the way that machines communicate with each other in order to improve automation and efficiency in daily tasks.
Basically all of your appliances, tools, and vehicles will be talking to each other. As time goes on, you’ll start to see more and more internet connected devices. The perks of this future include more ease and efficiency when it comes to our day to day lives, and it could even save lives with instant reporting from health monitoring systems. This also means that manufacturers can update products and their functionality post launch without you having to bring them to a store. Of course, the more things we automate in our lives, more problems can arise when something goes wrong. Whether it’s something you want or not, it appears that the Internet of Things is here to stay.
