Technology hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down its penetration into every space. In other words, it’s evolving rapidly, and among the many things that are poised to become huge as a result of this is the Internet of Things (IoT).If you are hearing this term for the first time or you’ve probably heard about it but have never given it much thought, we’ll simplify its meaning for your sake.Think of a concept whose goal is to transform how we live, how we work, how we relate to and manage everyday tasks, and so on.
That’s exactly what the Internet of Things is all about - a connection of devices (besides the typical ones such as smartphones and computers) that can connect to networks and then send and receive data.Examples include wearable fitness devices able to connect to smartphones or scales, WiFi cameras, kitchen appliances that can connect to smartphones, etc.Now, imagine a world where there’s plenty of such devices connected to each other, sharing and communicating information with each other and with us as well.
Pretty fascinating, right? This is what the future holds for us.And to let you in on this, this infographic sums up a list of leading IoT startups and their technologies that are set to revolutionize the world.Take a look.
