We have gotten used to computers, smart phones, iPads, even to wearing small computer-like gadgets around our wrist when we’re working out – then imagine what happens when all these things connect to each other and with you. Add the computers we have in our homes, cars, elevators, dishwashers, radiators and toys, and you’ll end up with the Internet of Things, yet another step that will affect our daily lives. The question is how and what choices we have: how will our everyday life be effected by the Internet of Things?
