Remember the buzz when Google Glass was launched in 2014 or when Apple Watch was introduced earlier this year? Wearable technology has brought in tremendous wave of enthusiasm but is keeping a low profile since then. In this scenario what is gripping the imaginations of a software developer is “Internet of Things” concept nicknamed IOT. A technology-laced network of objects that can be controlled by you and easily communicable is what we call the “IOT”. For example it can comprise anything like car, oven, heat pumps, toasters and even plants. Yes you heard it right IOT can help you communicate with plants. Now all bigwigs of electronics and state-of-the-art tech industries are queuing up before this sector.
Samsung, Google or Intel all of them are interested to launch their IOT based products. In this rat race it seems that Intel is a bit ahead of others. Recently conducted Annual Developer Forum of Intel has an interesting display that of a Robot maneuvered with hand gestures only. Next in line was a vending machine that could recognize different facial gestures and let out food and drinks to customers. Not only this on the basis of commonly ordered things, this vending machine would dispense off the items.
Amid dwindling sales of PCs Intel is keeping up with innovative ideas in synchronization with latest technology. Intel aims to rule this world as smoothly as it used to rule the world of PCs with smart devices operating on powerful chips.
IOT is the natural progression of BlockChain and Bitcoin technologies. BlockChain is a decentralized technology to easily form networks with others and communicate. When connected via BlockChain the devices swiftly communicate with the owner; service centers and other devices as well as order supplies etc. Self-sufficiency enhances for the devices. Not only this but also the owner could pay through digital currency. With the help of concept products power of processing for mining enhances or extra digital currency could also be earned in the times of its operations.
Only time will tell if Intel wants to exploit the BlockChain technology.
