The next big thing: Stay tuned to your screens are the Marc Pous slides from his talk at the RE.WORK Cities London 2013 at the Panel Session "The Internet of Things & the Socially Driven Smart City".
In 2015 there will be more than 25 billion objects connected to the Internet. From our household light bulbs to our cars, all the devices in our daily lives will be connected to the Internet. That will affect our daily lifes from our houses to our cities. In the new reprogrammable world users will be able to interact and reprogram all of their Internet of Things gadgets. Can you imagine being able to reprogram your car with a special engine program to adjust the fuel consumption during your next trip? Can you imagine a system being able to know when a traffic light bulb has broken and a company get a message for an urgent repair service? The future of the cities is based on complex technologies, should they be open?
