You've may have heard the term "Internet of Things" being thrown around a lot lately. If you're not sure what it means, this video can help you understand.
This video from Linus at the Techquickie YouTube channel explains the basics of what the Internet of Things is:
The Internet of Things is the name given to the interconnection of everyday devices from appliances in your home to automobiles with built-in sensors... essentially it is the way that machines communicate with each other in order to improve automation and efficiency in daily tasks.
Basically all of your appliances, tools, and vehicles will be talking to each other. More technically: every single one will have an IP address.
As time goes on, you'll start to see more and more internet-connected devices. This also means that manufacturers can update products and their functionality post-launch without you having to bring them to a store. Of course, the more things we automate in our lives, more problems can arise when something goes wrong. Whether it's something you want or not, it appears that the Internet of Things is here to stay.
