The internet of things

Undefined

Since the early microcomputers, we entered the era of nanotechnologies and complex wireless communication systems are so small they can fit into a credit card or even smaller elements.

 

More and more objects are being "augmented" with such systems and even volunteer consumers get implanted microchips for example to open their car like you would pay wireless with a credit card.

 

These systems do not have a long communication range and usually work like transmitters and receivers with other distant machines that will store the data or send it to a server when connected to the internet.

 

Thus, billions of information are shared everyday between these so-called "connected objects" , forming a bridge between the world-wide web and reality.
