#2: IoT at CES 2014 Roundup

This week we’ve got a CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2014 roundup at the Internet of Things rodeo! YEEEE-HAH! We diverge wildly along the way, so we end up talking about interesting stuff other than just IoT products.

Remember the official Farscape definition of the IoT from our first podcast: The Internet of Things is the ecosystem that results in a world where “things” compute, connect and communicate.

In this episode we talk about…

  • Creepy toothbrushes
  • Revolv
  • DoorBot
  • Hybrid power solutions
  • Do people care about controlling appliances from their smartphone?
  • Trough of disappointment” (Gartner Hype Cycle)
  • Analysts project 50 billion internet connected devices by 2050
  • House of Coates (tweeting house)
  • SmartWaste™
  • FTC Commissioner Maureen Ohlhausen and “regulatory humility”
  • They see you when you’re sleeping / they knows when you’re awake…
  • Government regulations for security and privacy?

We hope you enjoy! Send complaints and kudos to podcast@farstuff.com.
