No Longer Vaporware: The Internet of Things Is Finally Talking | Wired Opinion | Wired.com | Smart Cities & The Internet of Things (IoT) | Scoop.it

In Wired, Clive Thompson talks about how the Internet of Things -- the long-prophesied phenomenon of everyday devices talking to one another—and us—online, has created new behaviors and efficiencies. 

 

After the Fukushima nuclear disaster, many Japanese worried that the government wasn’t providing adequate data on areas outside the evacuation zone. So some hackers designed customized Geiger counters that automatically updated radioactivity levels on an online map. Soon there were more than 300 jury-rigged all over the country, so the public could see real-time radiation levels. “It was the largest nongovernmental radiation-monitoring network in Japan,” says Chris “Akiba” Wang, one of the hackers.

 

Cooking Hacks, the open source hardware division of Libelium, designed and manufactured the radiation sensor board for Arduino and sent a number of them to Japan to the Tokyo Hackerspace and other working groups, to help citizens measure radiation levels autonomously.
