The Internet of Things is a concept that is sweeping the nation as well as much of the rest of the world. What the Internet of Things is, to put it simply, is the way that all of our day to day items connect to the internet. We don’t just mean our cell phones or our televisions. We mean even more specifically: everything that CAN connect to the internet, will. The reason? The world is becoming increasingly connected and the internet is the greatest way to make our lives easier. Jason Hope, a renowned futurist, is firmly in the corner of the Internet of Things and he is putting his reputation on the line to make sure people know about it.
Right now we look at the Internet of Things like we would any other new and entertaining technology: as a fringe subject suitable mostly for giving us something to do. While the Internet of Things is certainly going to play a big role in the entertainment field it is going to be so much more than that. Jason Hope believes that the Internet of Things, or IoT for short, is going to lead to an evolution in the way our lives work. Period. Full stop.
One of the ways that the Internet of Things is going to re-define our lives is by way of our public services, funded by the taxpayer. Imagine a fire department that is linked up with the internet on every level. Trucks know how to get around traffic. Firemen know the fastest routes to get into a a building. Everything is mapped out because the internet is a part of it all. Look at how first responders like police officers could find success using these same methods and this same technology. There is a life changing concept growing before our very eyes.
Jason Hope knows that we have a long way to go before the Internet of Things is a household name. But he suggests that people get involved early on if they want to be there when the Internet of Things hits the second level of mainstream acceptance. To know more click here.
