Verizon moves up in the path of a connected society. As one of the biggest telco’s in the US, they have created a platform to take the smartphone into machines. In their whitepaper they say:” In the coming years, machine-to-machine services will be built into almost everything we touch—enhancing our quality of life and creating new ways to engage with partners and customers”. They put their money where their mouth is and created this development platform that challenges machine builders TO take wireless technology into their machines. In many areas connected devices are showing up; healthcare, vendingmachines, automotive, consumer electronics, security, toys and many more to come.
Communicating machines are not new but the low threshold to adapt the technology through inspiring development platforms will speed up our connected world. Take a moment today to enjoy the silence of just pondering at the coffee machine because soon this machine will start conversation.
