The Futuristic ‘Smartphone City’ at your doorstep

The Internet of Things (IOT) could allow you to wake up and experience the ideal day. You’d wake up in the
morning to an alarm clock, for instance, which went off at the right time
because it looked at your calendar to see the time of your first meeting. The alarm
clock backtracked to see how it would take you to get ready and even checked to
see what time your bus would arrive.

While taking a bath,
you’d lean- perhaps through an audio announcement – about how you’ll need to
leave the house five minutes early because of traffic conditions. While en
route to the bus, your Smartphone will tell you the bus is running late, so
there’s no need to rush. This type information would be served up all day; your
coffee machine at world could brew a cup before you arrive, for instance, or
your laundry at home could start to wash and then dry around lunchtime.  All of these connected devices are being
handled by automatic systems over a wireless network. The result? You have a
smart home, thanks to smart appliances and invention of Smartphone. Say hello
to the future, say hello to the Internet of Things.
