Promises of a better, more futuristic, more connected world have been floating around since the dot-com bubble of the 90s. Automated homes, self-driving cars, and automatic everything have followed a cycle of hype and disappointment for over a decade. However, it appears that this cycle might finally be shifting.
The “Internet of Things” is a term used since the early 90s to describe using RFID, NFC, and other advanced and highly miniaturized communication components to connect everyday objects to a centralized hub. Industry technology expert Jason Hope said, “The Internet of Things is one of the primary goals of technologists. The ability to control your environment from a smartphone will revolutionize the way we live.”
Everything from your coffee maker, to your air conditioning, and even your car will eventually be controllable from your smartphone or other networked device. The Internet of Things will dramatically increase the independence of seniors and the disabled, and will eventually make it possible to do things like automatically order and ship groceries to your home when the RFID or NFC chips inside each item indicates that you are running low.
