The Internet of Things (IoT)is one of these things that comes along and everyone(?) reckons is going to be the Next Big Thing.
Plug any device into the Internet so you can do - exactly what?
Some have suggested that the IoT will allow us to make our homes more secure. Motion sensors, cameras, window and door trips and devices that read the license plates of passing cars - all controlled from and alarmed to your mobile device.
Trouble is, none of these things, including the Internet, are reliable enough yet.
The IoT reminds me a lot of how smartphones were in the late 90's - technology looking for a real use. No-one could really think of what they could use them for (apart from making a phone call). We know what happened.
I wonder how the IoT apps will evolve into something useful.
