The internet of things is a concept that says devices talk to each other, and other devices like them to allow for an exchange of data and information. This video talks about the ideal ways that IoT could work, such as flowers knowing all the information about itself, or traffic being able to be controlled and slowed down. At the moment though, the internet of things just refers to devices such as fridges, virtual assistants, (google home, Siri) and lights. But what if you don’t have a ‘smart fridge’ or ‘smart lights’? Who can your google home talk too? If we were to get one of these devices in my home right now, it could talk to us and all we could do is ask the weather or make us laugh. So while the internet of things could change the world, the world needs to change with it and may take a while to catch up, especially if these things are expensive.
