One of the well-worn buzz phrases in tech that re-surfaces from time to time is “The Internet of Things.” Cisco has designed an infographic that offers a simple example of how Internet of Things will affect you in your everyday life.
It also states that by 2020, there will be 50 billion ‘things’ connected to the Internet – everything from your body, car, alarm clock and even cows. Cisco’s prediction of 50 billion devices by 2020 matches Ericsson CEO Hans Vestberg’s prediction earlier this year within a similar time period. However IBM recently put it at 1 trillion connected devices by 2015. Indeed in April 2010, Cisco’s own CTO Padmasree Warrior said that by 2013 the number of devices connected to the Internet will reach 1 trillion.
