the internet at your place – affixed to your fruit bowl, bonded to your bag of potatoes

in-real-life

The Internet of Things is term that’s been kicking around for a while now. Basically, it means making objects smarter by connecting them in some way to the www. That’s right, taking them outside the confuser (erm, computer. Thanks Sam Chapman) and making them work harder for us. My favourite friends at PSFK and their new buds Intel have recently put together a report on all things ‘object meets pixel’. Three macro trends are pointed out, with a bunch of sub-themes:

COMMUNITY NET

+ Shared awareness

+ Programmable lifestyle

+ Open source access

EMPATHY TECH

+ Behavioural nudge

+ Emotional response

+ Contextual experience

+ Adaptive machines

CONSCIOUS PLANET

+ Distributed intelligence

+ Environmental whisper

+ Anticipated action

Here’s the link to the SlideShare preso to explore the themes in detail. Enjoy!
