The internet of things refers to the concept of physical objects becoming connected to the internet where the virtual world combines with reality. It is a giant network of connected ‘things’ including humans and technology, where the relationship is between people-people, people-things and things-things.
Throughout recent years the advancement of the internet has transformed an intangible collection of data into tangible objects, allowing us to have everyday items that are active participants in our lives. An example of this is intelligent assistants. Google has recently introduced a device called Google Home. This advanced technology is voice activated designed to work with Google Assistant. It will allow you to ask questions, control music playback and also control your home’s IoT gadgets.
With the introduction of this device it will be interesting to see what other company’s, such as Apple and Samsung, will introduce into the market and how the development of IoT will transition further.
