Internet of things
The Internet of things refers to an ubiquitous network society in which a lot of objects are "connected". These objects are sometimes referred to as "Blogjects" or "Spimes"
In this call for papers for an IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies (May 2015, Special issue), Mark J.W. Lee states:
- “Object hyperlinking is a neologism that refers to extending the Internet to objects and locations in the real world, creating an Internet of things. The current Internet does not extend beyond the electronic world. Object hyperlinking aims to extend the internet to the real world by attaching tags with URLs to tangible objects or locations. These tags can then be read by a wireless mobile device and information about objects and locations retrieved and displayed. ( Wikipedia” - Object hyperlinking, retrieved 18:54, 24 July 2006 (MEST) )
- “[...] the next step in "always on" communications, in which new technologies like RFID and smart computing promise a world of networked and interconnected devices that provide relevant content and information whatever the location of the user. Everything from tires to toothbrushes will be in communications range, heralding the dawn of a new era, one in which today's Internet (of data and people) gives way to tomorrow's Internet of Things. [...] It seems that we are standing on the brink of a new computing and communication era, one that will radically transform our corporate, community, and personal spheres. With continuing developments in miniaturization and declining costs, it is becoming not only technologically possible but also economically feasible to make everyday objects smarter, and to connect the world of people with the world of things.” ( Flyer for the ITU Internet Reports 2005: The Internet of Things )
