Beyond bizarre to me!

BUT.....

What if.....

What if the Internet of Things (aka IoT) started popping up in other evergreen niches?

https://econsultancy.com/blog/68689-...net-of-things/

discusses that in depth... including the benefits of tracking customer behavior.

"IoT technology lets companies like LOreal track exactly what their customers are buying and, in turn, re-target them for future purchases.

Instant feedback and opinion is also another valuable aspect, which is harder and slower to gather from online purchases. Meanwhile, IoT creates a much richer and more memorable experience for consumers, ultimately proving the value of their shared data. "

The challenge, of course, is when you have thingees connected to the Internet....

... they can be compromised and zombiezed.....

    2016 has been a great year for internet-enabled and embedded technology (the essence of IoT), and with '17 just around the corner it's a good time to take a look at some of the Internet-empowered technologies that are soon to emerge, where they stand and the great changes they could bring with them.

    Apologies all for the bump from beyond. I've been looking into some B2B IoT applications recently and got a kick from Barb's example from the B2C world.

    I've compiled the B2B ones that I was discussing with a (potential) client into a separate presentation and you can access it here - nothing secret so feel free to copy anything you like:

    To give you a taste, you've got:
    - Ernst & Young using drones and apps for carrying out audits (source: https://www.ey.com/gl/en/newsroom/ne...-audit-process)

    - A healthcare app to help nurses treat wounds more effectively (source: https://www.hapio.co.uk/our-work/)

    - An HVAC app that allows office workers to control the temperature and lighting around them (source: https://www.comfyapp.com/customers/c...rd-properties/)

    It feels to me like the B2C world of IoT is still a bit gimmicky, but the B2B possibilities are very exciting. What do other Warriors think? And any other great examples to share?
