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,┬ácomputer. 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!
