Smart lamp posts. And, Nest is going for an open approach to home automation

nest.pngSmart devices are gaining pace - Chicago plans for smart lamp posts that measure air polution, noise polution and (PRIVACY ALERT) pedestrians.

 

And NEST, makers of smoke alarms and CO2 alams have released an API to their devices. I htink that this is good - it means that we may have just one unit managing the smart home, rather than one unit per smart device manufacturer. 

The next big thing: The Internet of Things and wearables

AcrobatScreenSnapz016.jpgThe Internet of Things (IoT)—embedding sensors and actuators into physical objects to link them to the digital world—is quickly becoming the next big thing. According to McKinsey, IoT is poised to be one of the 10 disruptive technologies that will transform the way we live and work; Forrester sees development for wearables beginning to mature in 2017, with ready availability of back-end software and services for enterprises in 2019. HP’s numbers are even more telling: IoT is projected to connect 1 trillion-plus objects in the next decade—up from 9 billion today—with market growth estimated to be $325 billion in 2018.
