If there was ever a sign that the we live in the future, it would be the rapidly developing state of the Internet of Things, which is connecting the everyday appliances and items we use with the Internet.
To help give you a better idea of what the technology of tomorrow will look like, here are a few of the projects that Internet of Things designers are working on today.
Nest Learning Thermostat.
Nest’s team of Internet of Things designers has been working hard on the Learning Thermostat. It can learn your schedule, program itself accordingly and will know when to increase your heat, or cool your home, helping you to reduce your energy bills and keep your house exactly the way you want it. Plus, the Internet of Things designers behind the Nest Learning Thermostat have made it so that it can be controlled from a smartphone. Imagine being able to turn on your AC before you get out of work so that your house is nice and cool when you get home.
Lynx Smart Grill.
The perfectly cooked medium-rare steak will soon cease to be a myth thanks to the Lynx Smart Grill. It’s a voice-activated grill that can automatically cook foods based on user commands. However, its physical and digital designers aren’t yet done with the product design and development, and hope to have it out by 2015.
Mimo Smart Baby Monitor.
Yes, Internet of Things designers have even taken up the task of designing products for babies and parents. The Mimo smart baby monitor allows parents to check on their young one’s respiration, as well as the temperature of whatever room they’re in. What’s more, the Internet of Things designers have also made it capable of telling parents whether or not they’re child is asleep, or how active the baby is.
These are just some of the ways that Internet of Things designers are building the world of tomorrow today. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments.
