After commenting on a few blogs, I thought I would take my turn at contributing to the pools of thought.
I found one of my peers blog ‘Smart Robots, Lazy Humans’ to be particularly intriguing as I took to the subject matter similarly. However, my connection was a little more juvenile and in my eyes a far superior creation of the big screen, The Jetsons.
Julian Bleecker, describes the Internet of things to eventually form to be“only but become enrolled as active, worldly participants by knit- ting together, facilitating and contributing to networks of social exchange and dis- course, and rearranging the rules of occupancy and patterns of mobility within the physical world”.
The possibilities of the Internet being endlessly inter-connected are unimaginable, especially considering the way we interact with technology currently. It is however alarming to think how far we would push the boundaries, considering every generation is becoming more and more reliable on the capabilities of technology.
Delving into such possibilities, the sci-fi films like iRobot & the television series The Jetsons come to mind. I mean, The Jetsons is an obvious lighthearted cartoon that has amazing robot service and a mechanical house, that is everyone’s dream. Yet the film iRobot, depicts a reality far from desired, divulging into the (dramatized) consequence of advancing technology.
Although I am admittedly a technology & Internet addict, I still remain to be a skeptic when it comes to the Internet of Things.
