The internet of things is a meshing of the physical and online world.
The first stage is labelling the objects around us in such a way that the label corresponds to online resources ('augmented reality'). This element has been present in Japan for a few years now, and is used for many applications. This talk will discuss what's required to make this truly practical in Rails. The second stage of this integration is to have objects communicate actively. This at present requires custom hardware with sensors - talking to APIs.
