Five Internet of Everything gadgets

Hamish Barwick | March 11, 2013
The notion of thermostats which can be controlled via an iPad or street lamps that use motion sensors to detect when people are near might sound like science fiction but they are now science fact in the brave new world of 2013.

Exercise

Another emerging category in the Internet of Things is wearable devices. One product on the market is the Nike FuelBand which tells the wearer when they have reached their exercise goal for the day.

If the user has friends with Fuel bands they can share exercise data and compete against each other via the Internet. Another example is the Lark band which is designed to monitor what people eat. It also monitors sleep patterns and wakes the wearer up.

"We're all going to be wearing some sort of device in the near future," said Dominquez.
