Bye Bye 2015: IoT Was. IoT Will?

Bye Bye 2015: IoT Was. IoT Will?
The year that is ticking by was quite a cornucopia of hopes, hype and hearsay about IoT. So what survives the inevitable winter?
Until 2015, the world of technology was not any cacophony but it was a tad abrupt, hoarse or Staccato to be precise. With IoT (Internet of Things) , the notes being hummed by devices of all shape, and instruments of all sizes, became smoothly connected. The flow of the new world couldn’t have been more melodious and fluid.

In fact, so much was the excitement and song around this pretty young concept that there was no need to use the usual ‘for the uninitiated’ while talking about IoT as soon as 2015 started.

Everyone, who has not been living under a rock, in the technology world knows the suddenly possible marvels of connecting almost any device to another. Outrageous cross-breeding ideas are taking ground as we see geysers talking to cars, which in turn can mate with a traffic sensor that is presumably already chattering with a wrist-band, and do what was impossible just a few months back. Legato is here.

The offsprings are mind-blowing – an entirely new way of traffic management where cyclists can find all-green routes thanks to sensors connecting roads and wheels; a completely ‘out of this world’ comfort of switching the microwave off sitting miles away from the house; a strange sight of buffaloes allowing milk and diseases to be tracked real-time, or a jaw-dropping shopping experience of accessory-matching at a retail outfit.
