those game cubes are interesting. though a little uncomfortable to require the PC being connected to be able to play. A whole new set of games can be developed with the SDK! And educational ones for kids too!

tcp/ip for certain applications can become an IT burden with high overhead and maintenance. Various protocols that can create knowledge clouds of information that are client specific (proprietary)- while also possessing the capability to communicate to the web show promise and flexibility. i.e. Sensor Webs for one from sensorware systems

It is not a either / or proposition, ZigBee and WiFi can co-exist. They each have their advantages but low power WiFi will win. There are already radios available for two-way transparent conversion of between Zigbee and WiFi. ZigBee-networked devices will not have backwards compatibility. Every time the M2M networks are upgraded, cost may therefore become a concern. MP Divakar

have been working on zigbee products for more than one year, i have to say that zigbee is terrible in design, for example, it's IP unfriendly, and i can not have two profiles co-exist on one node...

Nice pictures and some nice ideas. Yep, the IOT is good business opportunities for many IT and electronics related companies. Hope this can help a bit for them to come out of the economy downturn.

When everything around us becomes smart we the humans are going to be reduced to dumb animals because we may not have left much to do with our own hands. Just Obey the machines ! ( or the hackers behind them ! LOL)

Yes, the smart technologies have been in development for a while, and it is time for them to bloom..also, perhaps it is the time to drop the "smart" adjective...we already have smart phones, smart grid, smart cars and now smart cities, smart factories, and smart buildings...what happens when everything on earth becomes smart? what would become of the meaning smart in that case? ;-)...Kris
