    Internet of Things starts to gain a developer following


    The so-called Internet of Things gains traction, with two out of five developers looking at the possibilities.

    The Frankensteinian creature many refer to as the Internet of Things is starting to gain a foothold in the developer community, suggesting that we'll be seeing more applications headed our way.

    That's the conclusion of a new survey from Evans Data Corporation, which finds that 17 percent of 1,400 developers participating in its latest survey said they were "working on applications for connected devices for the Internet of Things." Another 23 percent expect to begin work on applications for connected devices in the next six months.

    OMG! Of course I was kidding but naturally they are actually considering it. Nothing is all that surprising anymore. Shoot, why not the bed too? A lot of data could be collected there also.

    Waiting for the link Shawn.
