Internet ON thingsThe center is the CloudThings are less important than services10 years battery powered IoT applicationsare an illusion until the battery tech evolvesMost of IoT applications will be always ON
The Cloud enables a new life for objects andhardwareObjects and Smart ObjectsIoT is not just sensors networkIoT needs designers, software engineersand UX experts to become a realityThe business model will be all aroundservicesExamples of Smart objects based on Flyport
