Mobile tags show us the futureIt is interesting to examine the uses associated with tags mobile,as they will be taken up and further developed with NFC and augmented reality.
NFC … and the Internet of things Near field communication (NFC)is a short-range wireless technologies (requiring a distance of 4 cm or less).NFC involves an initiator and a target. The initiator actively generates an RF field that empower a passive target.

Country-wide rainfall maps from cellular communication networks• Accurate surface precipitation measurements are crucial for water resources management. But the majority of the surface of the earth lacks such data.• A solution could be to use received signal level data from the microwave links used in commercial cellular communication networks. Along such links, radio signals propagate from a transmitting antenna at one base station to a receiving antenna at another base station …• Rainfalls can be measured from the signal’s attenuation between transmitter and receiver. http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2013/01/29/1217961110.full.pdf+html

Temporary tattoo to measure metabolic stress A medical sensor attached to the skin like a temporary tattoo could make it easier for doctors to detect metabolic problems in patients and for coaches to fine-tune athletes’ training routines. The entire sensor comes in a thin, flexible package shaped like a smiley face. http://www.news.utoronto.ca/temporary-tattoo-measures-metabolic-stress
Web². Internet of Data• At the intersection of Big Data and Open Data, we will see the emergence of "Data as a Service" (DaaS).• Large-scale deployment of new online services accessible to a large number of people, providing, on demand, aggregations of raw, quantitative or personal data, making it easier for companies to understand specific phenomena and anticipate new market trends.• For example, will the sales of a product be affected by extreme weather?
www.qunb.com Finalist at the startups competition at LeWeb 2012 (IoT), Qunb is a DaaS aggregation platform where it is possible to interact and cross different data sources. Described as the "YouTube" of data, it allows users to “consume“ specific data and to see them in the most accurate format.
Web². Internet of industry• 3D printing could cause a new industrial revolution.• We are surrounded by manufactured goods, mostly products of the industry, which has undergone many changes during the last century …• But the “factory” concept is now changing. Manufacturing becomes digital. And from the moment an industry embraces digital, it changes deeply, as we have already seen for the distribution or the media. The biggest change is not how things are done, but who makes them.• If we can do something on a classical computer, then anyone can do it. This is exactly what is being observed now for the industry.
www.shapeways.com Shapeways.com is the worlds leading 3D Printing marketplace and community. They harness 3D Printing to help everyone make and share designs with the world, making product design more accessible, personal, and inspiring.
Web². Internet of Energy• Smart grids // personal management of energy.• The next stage in the Internet revolution ?• In parallel of the “classic” Internet and mobile revolution, another revolution on a similar scale is taking place in the world of energy, with the advent of “smart grids”, intelligent networks that use information technology to optimize the production, distribution and consumption of electricity.

Web². Internet of the body• Human augmentation ?• The Internet of the body is still at his premices. But the promises in the field of prevention and healthcare are enormous. Would you change your eating habits if you know your cholesterol levels in real time? What diseases can be detected as soon as they start an intervention for the quickest possible?• But big questions remain to be see how far we collectively accept to become continuously monitored.
Connected babies A group of students from the Brigham Youth University (USA), have found a very simple way tooffer a better sleep to young parents anxious about the idea of the sudden death of their child. It’s a small “online” sock which transmits the vitalparameters to a mobile application (heart rate and oxygen levels in the blood) and generates an alert when something anormal happens. http://owletcare.com
Web². Internet of the body• Touching. Through vibrations, new touchscreens will simulate on smartphones the same physical sensations as those experienced in contact with an object.• Hearing. Through sensors, crowdsourced sounds and specific algorithms, computers will be able to detect and interpret important sounds in a given environment.• Smell. Thanks to sensors, smartphones will be able to identify the chemical composition of a smell and, for example, trigger a particular action, such as preventing a disease by analyzing the air we expire.• View. Computers will be able to identify an object, without human intervention, especially by comparison to "Big Data" images.• Taste. Computers will experience the favorite tastes of a person, identify his nutritional needs and provide recommendations for the choice of a regime.
