So where are they going to stick a radio now? CES was a buzz with WI-FI and Cellular radios in every kind of appliance and machine imaginable! We've all seen Ring, August, Lutron, Wink, Sonos, Chamberlain, trash can, home appliances, cars and other home automation products, but the range of IoT devices at CES expanded the list considerably!
If you have it in your home or workspace, there is someone who has internet enabled a version. Some of the most interesting items at CES included internet enabled / connected toilets, walking canes, shower heads, mirrors, pillows, crock pots, beds, shoes and of course desks.
If you have an item, there is someone thinking about how to internet enable it for greater convenience or functionality! Excited to see what the next 5 years will bring.
