What exactly is the Internet of Things?

In a nutshell, the Internet of Things is the concept of connecting any device (with an on/off switch) to the Internet and other connected devices. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a massive network of interconnected things and people, all of which collect and share data about how they are used and the environment around them. This includes an extraordinary variety of objects of all shapes and sizes, ranging from smart microwaves that automatically cook your food for the appropriate amount of time, to self-driving cars with complex sensors that detect objects in their path, to wearable fitness devices that measure your heart rate and the number of steps you've taken that day, then use that information to suggest exercise plans tailored to you. There are even connected footballs that can track how far and how quickly they are thrown. record those statistics via an app for future training purposes.
