In 1926, Nikola Tesla dreamed of a better-connected world where ‘The Earth would be converted into a huge brain using pocket-sized devices.’ Fast-forward to 2022 and Tesla’s dream is now closer than ever, as more and more devices connect to ‘The Internet of Things’ (IoT.) But just what exactly is IoT? What benefits can you look forward to and what pitfalls should you be wary of?
‘IoT is a system of interconnected devices connected to the internet that can transfer and receive data from one another.’
Essentially, millions of devices are now connected to the internet forming a network of physical objects. The network allows these devices to communicate with each other by sending and exchanging data.
