TN Note: Here comes the freight train of IoT barreling down the track. The IoT will connect virtually everything, everywhere into an interwoven web of command and control. This is an essential marker to the progress of Technocracy!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you’ve likely heard the term Internet of Things, or IoT, at some point. But what does it mean?

In short, the IoT is a network of objects connected to the Internet that can collect and exchange data.

That brand new car loaded with apps? Internet of Things. The smart home devices that let you control the thermostat and lights with one voice command? Internet of Things. That fitness tracker that lets you share your exercise progress with friends? You get the idea.

The IoT is set to transform the way we live, work, and interact with one another in the coming years. It might seem complicated at first, but the Internet of Things works through a relatively simple ecosystem.

A person uses a remote (such as a smartphone or tablet) to give a command or request information through a network to an IoT device, which performs the action and then sends it back through the network. The command or information is then displayed on the remote. This data can be stored in the cloud, on a local database, on the remote, on the IoT device itself.

The potential for the IoT is enormous, and Business Insider Intelligence estimates that there will be 24 billion IoT devices installed globally by 2020, with $6 trillion invested in IoT solutions over the next five years. This is due to several factors, including expanded Internet connectivity around the world, increasing mobile adoption, low-cost sensors, and larger IoT investments.

This IoT explosion is imminent, but the revolution is already starting to affect everyday life with the arrival of smart cars and homes. This IoT Revolution is picking up speed and when it does, it will change how we live, work, travel, entertain, and more…

Internet is packets,within packets,within could shut off at and t service,but there another you still 1980’s there were computer software languages.for example,c,c+,c++, fortran,pascal,if before 1980’s you had binary language ,than use 0’s and 1’s.the original design in 1960’s was for the American militiary to communicate with our command structure ,in event of Nuclear War. So I believe an individual switch,that turn on,or off the entire infrastructure is too complex to be done entirely.
