Science fiction, say hello to reality. The Internet of Things has come to us in time to change the world, change the way we live, and change the tech industry forever. Jason Hope is an acclaimed futurist, an important philanthropist, and a tech entrepreneur that is currently dominating the industry. Hope has put his faith and belief in the Internet of Things and now we are going to talk to you as to why you should to.
The Internet of Things refers to the way objects can interact with the internet via a wireless connection. Consider the watch you wear around your wrist that tracks your steps taken, calories burned, and heart rate. Then look to street lights that automate when they come on and off due to a central server negotiating with weather information. The Internet of Things is going to change the way you live your life by bringing automation to it in a real way. Jason Hope knows this and that’s why he has been touting it as the most important growth in the tech industry. Hope believes that companies should get ahead of the pack by starting to develop for the growing Internet of Things.
Hope points to the airline industry as an example of an industry trying to embrace the Internet of Things. He points to how Virgin Atlantic’s Boeing 787 jets utilize the Internet of Things in order to ensure the safety of their vehicles. These jets are configured, from tail to nose, to interface directly with the internet in order to keep everything as safe and functional as possible. The moment anything goes wrong, a message is sent and people are aware of it.Outside of the actual plane, Jason Hope believes that airline companies are going to embrace the Internet of Things in order to enhance their customer service. Examples include baggage carrying procedures that include GPS trackers to heighten accuracy as well as on board conveniences. These improved systems certainly seem like a good idea to us and Jason Hope believes that they’ll be an industry game changer. Get on board, the Internet of Things is coming.
