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.

Kevin Loria6 Strange Body Hacks That Are Actually Useful

Source: "The human body has the potential for amazing feats, but it also has built-in limitations — we can't hear certain tones, we see a limited range of colors, and we can't feel magnetic and electrical fields around us the way some animals do.
Some people choose not to accept those limits.
Neil Harbisson was born without the ability to see color. Now, he can perceive more than 360 colors and even discern the infrared spectrum. Kevin Warwick, the U.K.-based cybernetics professor and author of "I, Cyborg," was the first person to implant a RFID chip into his arm,

The VAR Guy Blog: How To Profit from the Internet of Things

Source: „The small-business arena is buzzing with hype around the The Internet of Things, but many people still don't understand the potential opportunities. IT partners stand to benefit, as many small businesses won’t have the expertise, the time or even the resources to do in-depth analysis of data generated from the Internet of Things. The small-business arena is buzzing with hype around the term “The Internet of Things,” and all the “limitless” possibilities it has in store for all of us. In my experience, many people still don’t really understand what the Internet of Things actually is and just how it is relevant to them.


Rob van Kranenburg: Which side are you on?

So let us speak with Ortega Y Gasset and say: Look here, here is the ugly truth, the facts are this: One particular kind of intelligence in the tribe, traditionally harnessed by the brute force of warrior-kings and outwitted always by the manic-creatives, has managed to take over the entire spectrum of predictive capacity. This is the reality of the situation. We can lament it , but we can not go back. We can oppose it, but we cannot halt the convergence of a push logic of logistics able to individuate all objects (ecology of barcodes, qr codes, rfid, nfc…) and software as a service in everything that has capacity to hold software (ipv6) combined with a pull logic of people Read more about Rob van Kranenburg: Which side are you on?



David Prosser: The firms set to lead the "internet of things" revolution

Source: „The firms set to lead the "internet of things" revolution If there were an award for the most anachronistic company name on the stockmarket, Carphone Warehouse would surely win it: car phones, after all, disappeared around the same time as shoulder pads.
It's curious, then, that the name will endure following the company's recommended merger of equals with Dixons Retail - particularly since Dixons Carphone (DC.), as the new venture will be known, is essentially a huge bet on a vision of how the internet will develop.

Jack Palmer: The keys to autonomous driving lie in the hands of the tech. community and software providers.

The keys to autonomous driving lie in the hands of the tech. community and software providers. Before autonomous driving is possible, there are certain challenges to consider.  One of these is the design of a HMI that recognises the level of 'driver disengagement' so that different types of alerts (e.g. haptic feedback) can re-engage the driver when dangers are on the road.
Denso and QNX are leading the way in providing tech. and software that will shape this auto-mobility revolution.
