Tony Fadell on the Internet of Things

I've been thinking about the Internet of Things a lot lately. I think about what it means for UI and how to bring the concept into the classroom. It's nice to hear one of the most successful people dealing with the IoT share his views. Technology is always about people! How can we use this tech to improve someone's life? That's the real question.

People don’t buy “things”; nobody cares about connected “things”. They care about what that thing does and how it’s better. “The internet of things” is a term made by the industry to try to get people buzzing about something that there’s no definition of.
