What is the internet of things?
The internet of things is a new multi-reality that leads to so many interesting capabilities. This involves physical objects having the ability to act, react or display something that allows humans to interact with it. This may include smart phones, Siri, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, smart refrigerators etc.
These changes can better the world and doesn’t resolve so heavily on only physical humans but it involves objects and things. This is important as “things”, once plugged into the Internet, will become agents that have their own thoughts, that can “speak on matters from an un-bias point of view, that lend a Thing-y perspective on micro and macro social, cultural, political and personal matters” (bleecker, J 2006).
