"We can only really communicate with a tiny fraction of our personal and global environment. But our world and our experience of it are poised to change dramatically as everything becomes increasingly interconnected. Here’s what we can expect in the coming era of the “Internet of Things.”
"Our world today is more connected than it has ever been, but a bare fraction of how connected it will become. As nearly every object in our personal, professional, and external worlds becomes addressable and programmable, much will change. We will change.
"The Internet of Things will increase knowledge of our environment, bringing with it new functionality and efficiency. But it also holds the potential for new security holes, invasions of privacy, and possibly even a challenge to our sense of what it means to be human. The goal now is to ensure that these changes actually improve our lives."
