Here is an interesting article on cincinnati.com about the next revolution in technology. The Internet revolution was about people connecting with people. The next revolution will be about things connecting with things. The story mentions having “tags” on every possible items from glasses to grocery, and each one identifying itself on a network…very cool stuff.



In a twist, this next technological chapter won’t emerge out of ever-more-powerful computers and faster Internet connections. This shift comes from the opposite direction. It will ride on pieces of plastic the size of postage stamps, costing a nickel or less. Each plastic tag will contain a computer chip, which can store a small amount of information, and a minuscule antenna that lets the chip communicate with a network.
