The ‘Internet Of Things’ Outnumbers Human Population [Infographic]
Cisco Systems infographic shows us the more than 50 billion connections between the 'Internet of Things.'
Computer networking firm, Cisco has designed an impressive infographic detailing how the ‘Internet Of Things‘ will affect everyday life. Or rather, how it won’t. As of 2008, the number of ‘things’ connected to the Internet surpassed the number of people on earth. By 2050, there will be 50 billion things, ranging from your smartphone to believe it or not, cattle. Wireless sensors (transmitting 200 MB of data per cow each year) have been affixed to cows, instantly notifying a farmer when one is sick.
An example of the much bigger picture shows how mobile and wireless connectivity can enable everyday things to be part of daily information and communication needs. As we progress, it’s possible that these devices will spend more time interacting with each other than we interact with them.
