The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vision. It is being built today. The stakeholders are known, the debate has yet to start. In hundreds of years our real needs have not changed. We want to be loved, feel safe, have fun, be relevant in work and friendship, be able to support our families and somehow play a role - however small - in the larger scheme of things. So what will really happen when things, homes and cities become smart? The result will probably be an tsunami of what at first looks like very small steps, small changes. The purpose of Council is to follow and  forecast what will happen when smart objects surround us in smart homes, offices, streets, and cities.

Kyle Vanhemert: This Brilliant Washing Machine Is a Roadmap for the Internet of Things

Source: „There couldn’t be a more perfect example of our absurd obsession with the internet of things than the connected washing machine. Nothing so concisely symbolizes just how ludicrous our mania for connectivity has become as a smartphone app that helps you wash your socks.
Berg, a design and technology development startup in London, shares this wariness of a mindlessly connected future, and much of its work centers on envisioning a smarter way forward. That said, the studio’s latest project might be even crazier

Jeremy Thomas: Peek into a parallel universe

Meet the Keynotes for Internet Of Things Philosophy, York

The Conference:  The Internet of Things (IoT) is an umbrella term used to describe a next step in the evolution of the Internet.
While the first phase of the web can be thought of as a combination of an internet of hyper-text documents and an internet of applications (think blogs, online email, social sites, etc.), one of the next steps is an Internet of augmented ‘smart’ objects – or ‘things’ – being accessible to human beings and each other over network connections.
This is the internet of Things.
