The Internet of Things (IoT)

The latest concept in the tech world is the Internet of Things or IoT for short! What is it I hear you cry!!

Well loosely speaking it is the concept where things, such as people, animals and objects are given their own IP address (IPv6) and information about them or too them can be sent electronically to another place and the data stored and actioned. For example, the telemetry from your car can be transmitted to a central server(s) and any problems can be identified and sent back to the car and the driver or the vehicle itself can take action to fix it. Another example might be a parcel that can keep a central system updated about its progress and location, all the way to the point of delivery and then store itself! The possibles are endless!
