Jason Hope Looks at the Most Surprising New Internet of Things Items.
September 11, 2014
  Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) September 11, 2014   Anybody could predict the Google Glass or the Apple Watch. "There's a lot more to the Internet of Things than strapping an iPhone to someone's wrist, though," said Jason Hope. These items are some of the most interesting, novel, and surprising new developments made possible by IoT technology:     iKettle     The funny thing about iKettle is how it combines high and low tech in one package. The concept is simple: it lets users turn on the tea kettle from their iPhone, so they can hit the snooze button, start the kettle, and have boiling water ready for some tea or coffee by the time they feel like getting up. This is worth highlighting as a reminder that new ways don't always eliminate old ways. Sometimes, the two enhance each other.     Smart Diapers         Smart diapers will notify parents whenever a diaper needs changing, and even check sodium and hydration labels to identify infections and rashes. This invention helps to show that a user with an Internet of Things-enabled iPhone is sort of like a psychic, able to check a diaper without even looking at it.
