James Miller is a Freelance Technical Lead and Creative Technologist who loves playing with new web technologies and building his own hardware (http://www.james-miller.co.uk). Whether he is trying to get the best out of a team of developers or a tricky piece of code, James loves to get stuck in and sort things out.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled the Internet to reach beyond the browser. Made up of electronically networked devices, these “things” are able to interact with the physical world via sensors that feed data they capture back into their ecosystems.
Currently, these devices are mostly products, designed with a specific purpose in mind, a typical example being a fitness band that tracks activity. It reports the information gathered to an app, which is then able to analyze the data and offer suggestions and motivation to push the user further.
