IoT is going to be next in thing
IoT or internet of things is going to be a must for every project or industry sooner than later. It's one of the technologies used commonly in developed countries but picking up fast even in third world countries. People in underdeveloped countries have their doubts about this technology but all their gadgets including mechanical/electrical/electronic will be working in a embedded technology to make their lives easy. Everything will be run by internet hence internet connection and speed will play a major role in all this.
IoT has already influenced the world. The interconnected network (Internet) has its forerunner sometime in 1980 or its precursor network is the ARPANET. Thus personal and mobile computers are connected. And by early 1990s, the modern Internet has started.
Nowadays, Internet has influenced everyone, every industry, every agency, every government, and everything.
I agree but the world is too big and the facilities you mentioned have reached to only a select few that too in advanced countries. For instance in my country with a population of 1.3 billion only a handful have advanced technology at their disposal. Even in Australia where I live currently and which is supposed to be one of the most advanced country with a population of 20 million not even 60% have all the facilities. True that number of internet users have increased considerably in last 5-10 years but as far other things are concerned we have yet to go a long way.
Well, it is not too distant that the world would be indulged in IoT. The schools are already introducing or adapting technology in imparting education to their students. The medical industry is already using modern facilities with the aid of technology. The military, the business, the farming, and you name it, there is already technology or machines powered by technology being used.
Though IOT has not reached remote areas. This was because of the Cost and complexity of the IOT project kits. To implement a Iot project one need to spend money more on kits. Most of the kits can only be purchased online and not on nearby stores. It takes a few more years for a Iot to grow on the remote. There should be something similar to drag and drop website builder so that each and every individual can do a trial. Who knows website created will be much easier before 20 years?
