The Internet of Things (IoT) is starting to play a crucial role in the world that we live in. There are now millions of connected, everywhere-enabled devices that are designed to work together to produce and share content that make our lives and processes, among others, easier and more convenient.
The last decade has seen a huge expansion in wireless sensing. A myriad of commercial products have been introduced and are now making huge strides in various industries including but not limited to sports, healthcare, processing and computing. Sensors of various sorts have also crept into fabric and clothing and wearable systems can now be attached directly or even painted onto the skin.
These devices take our relationship with computation to the next level. Right now, connected devices provide us with information at the touch of a finger or the enunciation of a phrase. Soon, new devices that have the ability to stream directly into our eyes and ears will be developed. In the near future, it is expected that our world will be deeply networked by wearable and eventually implantables and when that time comes, the technology will further redefine humanity.
