It could even be like an advanced version of "Geranimals." Your clothes could talk with your calender and suggest outfits based on what's clean and what you'll be doing during the day. I could envision my shoes saying to me: "Ah - no. Not white socks with me and those pants..."

@Max the Magnificent: I will be there BUT hold the Bacon (unless it is Sir Francis! And he had an expert opinion on everything!). That kidding aside, I believe the market potential of IoT's is being way oversold. MP Divakar

I think that Duane is spot-on about our biggest risk coming from Little Brother (corporations - especially health insurers) vs. Big Brother. I also love his idea of IOT "did I leave the oven/toaster/coffee pot on" devices. They would do a lot to ease my OCD-brain! :)
