Thanks to rapid advancements in technology, what seemed improbable only about two decades ago is a reality now. Today we have intelligent devices that are interconnected and can communicate with each other and humans to add value. As the technology evolves further, these devices will become even smarter.
Here’s a peek into some of future IoT-enabled devices:
Gesture Control Armband: This smart wearable will literally let you flex your muscle to control any devices on an IoT infrastructure. A gesture control armband can sense the movement of your muscles and use that as a command to control an IoT-enabled device. This armband is equipped with electrodes that can understand muscle activity – contraction and relaxation – due to hand movement. These electrodes send the captured activities in digital form to the software at the backend. The software then translates these signals into commands and the action is executed.
Lighting Control: This intelligent lighting control is integrated with mesh networking. This integration plays a key role in developing scalable and reliable wireless lighting solutions for home. A smart lighting control system has embedded sensors that sense the presence or absence of a human in a room and accordingly switch the light on or off. In case someone tries to break-in, these smart systems will go on and off incessantly.
Smart Glass: The smart glass can help you maintain good health by ensuring you drink adequate amounts of water every day. It monitors how much water you drink on daily basis, and whenever you fall behind, it will remind you to drink water. All you need to do is sync your smartphone with this device to get started.
Smart Eye: These futuristic glasses not only have embedded sensors but also connectivity options such as Bluetooth and WiFi. So, you have numerous accessibility options that allow you to read emails or text messages, browse the internet, open maps, or even capture moments.
Pulse Oximeter: Trekkers often check oxygen levels at high altitudes using pulse oximeters. But, IoT-enabled pulse oximeters are a step ahead, wherein they can notify your doctor for oxygen delivery over the cloud without the need for you to visit a hospital. These smart devices can help take appropriate preventive measures for numerous chronic ailments.
