As I had announced, last week held the Grande Conference, Le Web in Paris. This year, the thematic was based on the “Internet of Things” and it received a lot of attention.
Internet of Things can connect the real world to the virtual world. The concept is quite simple, it combines electronic chips to objects and connects them to a network.
For example, Lockitron, connected lock, compatible Bluetooth allows you to automatically lock the door of your home when you are away and open it when you approach. A Smartphone application allows the remote control. If someone knocks or enters in your home, the connected lock informs you.
But also many other innovations : give the floor to your plant with the application Koubachi. With a small magnet installed on your fridge, just a push-button and your pizza is ordered or it exists also glasses connected Google …
The European Commission estimates the number of objects connected to the Internet will be around 25 billion in the world in 2015 and expected to reach 50 billion by 2020.
The Internet of Things, undoubtedly,considerably will changed our relationship with others and the world as well as our model of society.
Have a nice weekend,
