You’ll peruse the menu and once intrigued, pick a dish, say, “smell,” and a special device will emit the odour of that dish. Then, via another device, you taste a sample. Satisfied, you say, “Reservation for two, tonight, 7:30.” Congratulations, you just made a dinner reservation in 2025. The “Internet of Things” refers to the next stage of the Internet’s evolution.

Maker faires that celebrate the movement have popped up in Japan, Italy, Norway, and Chile. Makers use their skills to craft items such as clothing, baked goods, jewelry, and art; contributing $29 billion to the U.S. economy annually.
From 3D printers to laser cutters—makers employ various tools to create their goods. Many gather at makerspaces where they share these resources. Makerspaces are havens for techies, artists, and entrepreneurs.

At its Convergence 2015 conference in Atlanta, Microsoft unveiled the Azure IoT Suite, a cloud service which will enable billing, monitoring, analytics, and predictive maintenance in IoT deployments. The preview version will be available later this year, but it will first launch Azure Stream Analytics -- a standalone service that helps companies process IoT data in real time -- in April. Stream can also be integrated into the Azure IoT Suite.
In the philosophy of Aristotle there are three domains of knowledge with three corresponding states of knowing; Theoria, Techné and Praxis. Theoria with its domain of knowledge epistéme, is for the Greek gods, mortals can never reach this state of knowing. But they can strive for it. In Theoria and epistéme we recognize our concepts theory and epistemology. In Techné with its domain of knowledge poèsis we find technology and poetry. The original meaning of the word 'technology' was concerned with know-how or method. Only with the Great Exhibition of 1851 it becomes attached to machines. It is therefore all the more interesting that the domain of knowledge that belonged to Praxis: phronesis has dropped out completely

"In the meantime, I would like to invite you all to participate to our IoT Developer Survey. We want to understand better the current technology trends, how mature the industry is, and how the current industry players are perceived. Of course, at Eclipse we are building an open source community for IoT developers, so we are also looking forward to learn more on how mature the industry is with regard to using and contributing to open source IoT projects.
Now that the Internet-of-Things is a reality worldwide (notably the IoT was the main attraction at CES 2015), we will be looking especially at how to bring IoT into large-scale adoption and widespread use. IoT Week 2015 will contribute to understanding of the future of the Internet-of-Things in the large-scale considering the technological and research dimensions but also innovation, user acceptance, security and privacy, business models, etc. IoT Week 2015 will pave the way for the future European Internet of Things Large Scale Pilots (LSP) envisioned
Extending Seamlessly to the Internet of Things (esIoT) is an international workshop focused on the integration aspects of the Internet of Things (IoT). The emerging machine-to-machine (M2M) systems should provide transparent access to information and services through a seamless integration into the Internet. On the one hand, the so-called Web of Things aims for direct Web connectivity by pushing its technology down to devices. On the other hand,

Autonomic computing has been proposed as a grand challenge that will allow the systems self-manage this complexity, using high-level objectives and policies defined by humans. Internet of things (IoT) as well as big data technologies will exponentially increase the scale and the complexity of existing computing and communication systems; the autonomy is thus an imperative property for real-time IoT systems.
However, there is still a lack of research on how to adapt and tailor existing research on autonomic computing to the specific characteristics of IoT, and the big data it generates,
