Ponder this: our human reality now involves a Bluetooth toaster. For $100, you too can receive push notifications when your slice of bread reaches the desired level of toasted-ness. Yes, this is almost certainly the future Steve Jobs envisioned when introducing the iPhone as a “revolutionary and magical product”.
But among the $50 water bottles (that tell you when to refill them... yup, really) and $65 forks (that let you know if you’re eating too fast… seriously) there’s the IoAUT (Internet of Actually Useful Things). Smart thermostats. The ability to shut your garage door and turn lights off from another time zone. Remote healthcare monitoring and emergency notification systems. Truly good and useful and amazing stuff.
