The Internet of Things is a concept that has been gaining some serious traction over the past several years. Commonly shortened to the acronym ‘IoT’, the Internet of Things refers to the way by which the internet is going to link up with all of the stuff in our daily lives. When we say stuff, we actually mean stuff. The Internet of Things is a concept that Jason Hope, a renowned futurist and tech innovator, has been vocally getting behind for years. Hope believes that the Internet of Things is more than a fad and that it is here to stay for good. Let’s dig into why the Internet of Things might be worth paying serious attention to.
Jason Hope is a technologist and that means he is always paying attention to the way that technology is intersecting with advancements. In order to highlight how accessible the Internet of Things is becoming Hope pointed to a few major brands that are getting behind the concept. Under Armour created a line of running shoes that can track your distance and map your route. This is the Internet of Things. Microsoft is working on earbuds that will track your health and create music based on your mood. This, too, is the Internet of Things. We’ve even seen Amazon get into the game with their Amazon Dash program. The Internet of Things is already finding massive commercial success and now it is becoming more important than ever.
While entertainment and luxury are great places for technology to evolve, they aren’t the only ones. Jason Hope believes that the Internet of things has the ability to become a world changer and a life saver. Hope believes that with the right applications the Internet of Things can bring about a reduction in pollution and an improvement in life saving emergency services. Hope has been vocally behind the Internet of Things for awhile now and we are eventually going to see the rest of the industry catch up. Hope is advocating for corporations to get in on the ground floor for what should be a gigantic improvement in our daily lives.
