Wearables, IoT and IoMe!
Observations from first night at CES. Attended CES Unveilled.
So much IoT and I of Me stuff here, it's unbelievable to see how the enabling technologies (chips and standards) are being combined with user and sector expertise to produce everything from networked tape measures to pool thermometers. Oh yes, and we have moved from plants that tell you when they need water (via Twitter) to plants that water themselves! Lots of fashion and jewellery stuff as the technology becomes small enough to be inside just about anything with all the heavy lifting, analysis and connectivity happening in the mobile phone or on the Net via WiFi.
The meek and the sleek are about to inherit the earth (from the geek)!
My first impressions were not wrong. This turned to be a very interesting and enlightening week!
