Tangled in a Web of Things

In January of 2010, Apple announced that there is room for a device between a laptop and a smart phone. A few months later, Apple released the iPad and successfully added another tier of things to our daily lives. Technology is becoming pervasive and will soon be inseparable from daily habits and routines. How do we go from a fragmented present to a connected future? And more importantly, how do we stop the machines from taking over?

In this talk, Hans Scharler will discuss the emerging Internet of Things, pitfalls, trends, and applications. Hans will share what he thinks an interconnected world may look like.

Hans Scharler is the co-founder of ioBridge and a contributor to ThingSpeak, an open source Internet of Things platform. In his spare time, Hans plays and designs board games.
