Charalampos Doukas on Building Internet of Things with Arduino
"the big changes don’t necessarily come from the fact that nearly everything from cars to tooth brushes are becoming connected to a network – it comes from the data that is retrieved from these sensors and how it can be used creatively.
This interview with Charalampos Doukas, author of Building Internet of Things with Arduino, speaks to the amazing and emerging connectedness of all the physical objects around us and how and why Open Source Hardware is playing a large part in its development.
So you want to get hooked up? It turns out to be quite easy, as many vendors and online services provide ways to basically plug and play sensors up to the web. The wealth of information about the IoT also makes hacking something together far easier than you may assume." (https://opensourcehardwaregroup.com/open-source-hardware-internet-of-things/)
