Internet of Things Monday Brief: Build, Feel

Screens are old school.

Even the screen on your smart phone, which might be driving you to distraction, is a trivial toy when compared to the coming flood of hardware…10 connected devices or sensors for every person on the planet.

It’s a hardware renaissance. A hardware revolution:

“If the hardware revolution as a whole were to be treated as a technology adoption lifecycle, I predict we are mid-way through the second stage. We are about 2 years away from consumers in the early majority participating in pre-sales and buying the products these startups are producing. By 2020 Gartner estimates there will be 80 billion internet connected devices, and I would predict upwards of 50% of these devices will be the products of hardware revolution companies. And finally by 2025, after 20 years, I believe we will be mid-way through the laggard market, and that there will be approximately 100 new, major, and influential consumer electronics companies in existence. I believe we still need to create a workshop, a factory, and a store to sustain the hardware revolution and I think these will get resolved in 2014, 2016 and 2019 respectively.”

(Did you see this uber list of IoT devices and stuff? Check it out).

See (My Face)
Next up: computers that can see:

“The key element of the Room-e vision is that the computing doesn’t happen on computers and that it can follow a user based on their orientation and needs. (frog design) thinks projectors are the way to escape the tyranny of the screen….Rolston points out that projecting images allows people to use computing in different ways, like putting a recipe for a meal on the countertop and letting someone page through it there, where his or her messy hands won’t get a screen dirty. An essential element of this strategy is that people can use their existing stuff in their home, as opposed to a specialty table. The image I saw (above) was projected on a white table and frog hopes to develop the technology to work on wood and other surfaces.”

And naw, the fact that the cash register at your local store can scan your face shouldn’t concern you in the least.

Connecting a Synaptic, Emotional World
We need to power it all up, connect it, and find some spectrum we can use so our airwaves don’t get clogged up and figure out how to foot the bill:

“The problem is that wireless connectivity doesn’t come cheap even for the millions of smart phones in use now and that cost issue needs to be resolved before the broader IoT can take off…It’s not just about laying fiber. Frequency does not grow on trees — it is a precious resource,” said Susie Kim Riley, founder and CEO of Aquto, a mobile internet startup. To fund it, the industry needs new business models, said speakers talking about the future of mobile technology.”

We won’t be looking to semantic tools to drive it. Think instead a synaptic web:

We need a web in which information (both questions and answers) finds you based on how your attention, emotions and thinking interconnects with the rest of the world.

It’s not just a hardware renaissance:

The Internet of Things is creating a renaissance of physicality and touch.

    locating it but, I’d like to send you an email. I’ve got

    now on every time a comment is added I receive four emails
    with the same comment. Perhaps there is an easy method you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!

  3. Today, it is actually considered one of the best platforms to connect with the clients.
    It became a rage in Hollywood and the rest of the US a
    few years ago, but a lot of women still do not understand how wonderful mineral makeup is for summer months.

  6. One of the areas of fashion that is a testament to developing these pieces
    would be designer handbags. A bag that you use to go out has more glamour and glitz and
    usually is quite a bit smaller than your daytime purse.
    It will help you out avoiding buying a replica purse for a
    branded one.
