isn't this internet of things going to overload the cloud servers with a lot of non-sense information? The baggage will soon become too heavy and the more important transaction oriented communications will get affected. That is what I fear!

Interesting... why not mention the cost per the thousand chips? I've always day dreamed with the coffee machine that IM's every guy in the office when the coffee is ready! Seems that the internet of things will be possible when cost of chips and ease of development are brought to a fair level. To think of connecting household appliances and everyday common machines seems more of an enhancement and not something strongly required. As mister's Lacovara's opinion, being able to see your laundry machine's diagnostics through your computer removes a nuisance from your daily routine... however... in the mean time we cope with such small nuisances at the expense of just a small amount of time.

@Dr DSP and @y_sasaki, the CC3000 uses SPI to interface to the microcontroller inside the system. You can learn more about the architecture as well as the APIs at the wiki link shown above...

Depending on the price, it's a nice way to get all sorts of little things connected. I'd love to be able to routinely have a look at the house thermostats. It's also likely to be cheap enough to get my wireless barbeque thermometer off the RF link it's using, and onto the house network. The folks interested in smart appliance control need a really inexpensive solution... few white good manufacturers want to add dollars to their cost... nickels are more like it. My washer and dryer have a certain amount of internal diagnostics, but entering the diagnostic code enables involves dialing the controls back and forth... a nuisance. Would be much nicer to just look at the machine from my computer. Lots of applications here if the connection is easy, fast and cheap.

@gsdg90: I think TI beat others like STM and Marvell (in addition to Red Pine you cited) to the punch, figuratively speaking! I understand they are working on providing solutions for internet of things. In fact, EE Times did a story in 2011 on Marvell's SEP: http://www.eetimes.com/design/smart-energy-design/4229848/SEP--Smart-Energy-Profile--2-0-Uncovered MP Divakar

You can get overview of CC3000 in TI's wiki website. http://processors.wiki.ti.com/index.php/CC3000_Wi-Fi_for_MCU Though the primary interface is SPI, I don't think it is SPI-WiFi-SPI bridge. I guess there might be simple commands (set SSID, set WEP key, send packet, etc) defined on SPI so your MCU can exchange packets over WiFi network.

How about a solution that just uses an SPI or I2C port on either side and wireless in between? Is that what this thing does?

The day is close where every man can put a web-cam on his dog Fido and hook'em to the internet with their own sound activated Twitter account and live stream to Fido's Facebook page. This is on big group of yet untapped users for Facebook - WiFi enabled PETS !! Quick, I need to file a patent before Zuckerberg claims it was his idea...

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
