How IoT is Revolutionizing your Daily use of Appliances?

Now technology is not limited to desktop and mobile devices. Our lives are filled with digital things nowadays. Desktop and mobile devices were just a teaser of how our life is going to change with technology. Now the real thing begins. The Internet of things or IoT is trending right now. Why?

“If you think that the internet has changed your life, think again. The Internet of Things is about to change it all over again!”

— Brendan O’Brien

What is the Internet of Things or IoT?

Any physical object can be transformed into an IoT device by embedding sensors and data chips into that device. This transformed device is known as IoT. Pretty much any physical object can be transformed into an IoT device.

The term IoT refers to devices that operate easily without any internet connection. IoT devices have their independent functionalities however some of the features are available only through the internet.

“The opportunity we have is to build a secure, intelligent platform that solves some of the world’s greatest problems at scale. That’s what’s possible with hundreds of billions of connections and the capabilities that we can deliver together.”

— Chuck Robbins

History of IoT

In 1999, British technologist Kevin Ashton first introduced the term IoT. for developing products that not only connect people but connect objects also. At that time people thought it was a science fiction movie thing, not a reality.

The progress in IoT devices was slow because the technological support needed to develop these devices was not sufficient. After decades this technology is booming due to the introduction of nanotechnology. The market revenue of IoT is $34.8 bn. Adding RFID to things for tracking purposes was the first IOT model introduced. The leading company in IoT cloud-backed segment is AWS.


Mind-blowing examples of IoT devices:
