More than 500 objects connected by family, it is the number impact of a new study just published by the research firm Gartner on the development of the Internet of Things. Its analysts believe that this milestone should be reached between 2020 and 2025.
The decreasing cost of electronics required to connect an object will push manufacturers to connect everything and anything so that these connected objects will become ubiquitous in our daily lives. For better and for worse.
The falling electronics prices will free the imagination of manufacturers and marketers
1 dollar is in a few years, what it will cost to connect an object to an application. One or a few sensors and a communication chip for a totally marginal amount, manufacturers and marketers will be able to connect almost every product imaginable and imagining new “business models” with this new way to get closer to their customers. Appliances, TV, safety, environment, health, sport, everything will be connected either through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee or cellular. In 2022, in developed countries there will be several hundred in every home. Like it or not Eve, no one can escape the Internet of Things.
