In addition, the IoT will include artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robots, microchipped humans, and augmented humans (humans with some form of technology implanted or integrated into their biology to “enhance” human characteristics or capabilities).
IoT sensors and surveillance cameras will pepper our communities as well. New IoT cyber physical systems will render all objects “smart” – i.e. connected to the Cloud – thus enabling pervasive machine-to-machine (M2M) communications and massive data collection and leaving us open to devastating cyber attacks.
Some of the IoT products currently being manufactured include driverless cars, clothing, toasters, and coffee makers. Even diapers, and pacifiers for babies are being made “smart”. There are “smart” mattresses, “smart” toothbrushes to record and notify you how well you are brushing, WiFi connected pills to transmit health data to your physician, and smart” toilets.
Every IoT “thing”, including robots, sensors, surveillance cameras, and augmented reality, will generate personal usage-data, which will be mined, stored, and used by government, law enforcement, industry, and hackers. And designed to increase our exposure to pulsed microwave radiation – known to adversely impact both humans and wildlife.
Although government and industry promote the IoT as the panacea for all ills, the IoT itself creates a host of problems.
