Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Introduction to the "Internet of things", part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- Welcome to Programming the Internet of Things…with Android.…"Any sufficiently advanced technology…is indistinguishable from magic."…That's what Arthur C. Clarke said…in Profiles of the Future from 1961,…nearly 60 years ago.…As the price and power…required to operate a computer…continues to drop into the range of pennies and milliwatts,…microprocessors and more importantly,…the sensing and expressing devices attached to them…are finding their way out…of not only the air-conditioned rooms of yesteryear,…they're leaping off your desk,…moving beyond your lap and into your pocket…and, even more magically,…inside everyday objects such as light bulbs,…bottle caps, planter boxes,…thermostats, smoke detectors,…watches, glasses,…and even the air valves on the tire of your bike or car.…
There's a universe of possibilities created…when you combine a microprocessor,…a Wi-Fi or a Bluetooth radio,…digital sensors and effectors…into a thing connected to the global network.…This is the so-called Internet of Things.…In this course, we'll explore both off the shelf things…
