Let’s try something new! Each month, we’ll focus on a tech topic that Rare Labs is involved in. For the month of December, we’ll be focusing on the Internet of Things . Be sure to follow our Twitter and Facebook pages for daily IoT news all month. Then, come back here every Wednesday for a new blog post!

If you’re unfamiliar with the Internet of Things, it’s a broad term that covers the series of interconnected devices, computers, and even people that can transmit data over a network without requiring human-to-human interaction. In short, IoT devices are the “smart” objects throughout your daily life. From your fridge, to your car, to your pacemaker, IoT devices are a part of almost everyone’s life.

Automation of monotonous tasks, interlinking of household tech, and improving quality of life are just a few of the exciting thing that IoT devices can deliver – plus, the tech is just plain cool! The makerspace and DiY movements are causing a boom in the industry. Now more than ever, inventors and tech geeks have the ability to prototype and produce awesome tech devices at an incredibly rapid pace. This is part of what makes the Internet of Things space so interesting; it’s growing fast, and quirky new tech innovations are popping up left and right.

Throughout the month, we’ll be discussing the most popular topics in the Internet of Things.

  1. The Connected Home
  2. Smart Cities of Now and the Future
  3. IoT in 2017
