The Internet of Things Infographic

The Internet of Things Infographic | Visual*~*Revolution | Scoop.it

The understanding of the internet is now far more diverse, feral even. Myriad devices and people creating content in multiple forms, for consumption on an increasing array of devices. It has become known as the internet of things, guided by the fact that if something has an on/off switch, it should probably compute, and if it is going to compute, it should also connect to the internet.
