How Big Data and the Internet of Things Make Our World Smarter by Bernard Marr

The Internet of Things (combined with big data) is reaching further into our lives every day. And while some of these innovations are just super cool, others may need to get the kinks ironed out before they become part of our everyday lives. I just bought a new vacuum cleaner that will tell me how many calories I have burnt during cleaning or let me know how much energy I have saved…  There are sensors you can buy to turn your home into a smart home, and when attached to apps, they can perform a command or send you a message when certain things happen, like turning on a light when it detects motion at the front door, or sending you a text message when the liquor cabinet is opened. One of the really cool new things I have come across is a smart yoga mat: sensors embedded in the mat will be able to provide feedback on your postures, score your practice, and even guide you through an at-home practice.
