Infoworld: How wearable tech will fuel the Internet of things

How wearable tech will fuel the Internet of things  

A new study from Rackspace titled “The Human Cloud: Wearable Technology from Novelty to Productivity” reports that 18 percent of the population in the United States and United Kingdom are using wearable technology, and the majority of those users (82 percent of Americans and 71 percent of Brits) say these devices are making their lives better.

 

Beyond providing users with real-time data about their health or an augmented view of the world, wearable technologies will form an integral part of the “Internet of things,” the logical evolution of the cloud and big data. The idea is to enable sensor-equipped “things” to communicate with one another in meaningful, actionable ways.
