THE FUTURE IN A WORLD OF DIGITALLY DEFINED OBJECTS
December 16, 2014
The following information was released by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA): Over a decade ago, consumers began to replace analog devices with their digital counterparts. Portable tape players were swapped for CD and MP3 players, tube TVs replaced by digital displays, and mobile phones became smart. It is true that engineers had long used sensor technologies in a host of applications, but these were hidden in everyday objects like airbags and computer hard drives. Until recently, consumers were largely oblivious to the sensing capabilities of their devices. The launch of Apples original iPhone and Nintendos Wiimote in 2007 exposed consumers to sensing technologies and ignited our imaginations around the technological potential. We enter 2015 with a suite of devices designed to sense, record and curate the data points of our everyday existence. The sensorization of virtually all consumer-facing electronic products has proven to be a watershed moment in the march toward a digitally defined physical world. Much like manufacturing innovation created the Industrial Revolutions of the 19th Century; the broad sensorization of consumer tech is ushering in a data revolution in the 21st Century that is redefining how we interact with technology.
