Internet of Things
Making ‘smart’ products and integrate with a network called ” The Internet of Things “mentioned. IBM has indicated a similar future for consumer needs. According to Eureka, the devices inexpensive and can fit almost any object on the Internet. Before the sensors on the market are, like Eureka more research.
