"It’s no secret that we’re rapidly evolving into a networked world: Physical debit and credit cards are disappearing, as are coins, banknotes, parking tickets and entertainment tickets. These are being replaced by software, apps in our mobile phones and fitness trackers on our wrists.
The Internet of Things (IoT) builds on this networked concept while driving peace of mind for consumers. In theory, technology built into everyday objects would ensure that you have the items you need when you need them, similar to what happened in your grandmother's analog days—the baker would deliver the rolls to her house, and if she left her empty milk bottles next to the front door in the evening, there would be just as many full ones the next morning."
