Jason Hope has been one of the loudest advocates for the Internet of Things and it seems like all of his praise is starting to pay off. The Internet of Things is one of the more interesting and enterprising technological concepts and it definitely is worth paying attention to. The Internet of Things refers to the way we interact with gadgets that are connected to the internet. There are obviously some serious entertainment applications that can be developed under this idea but there are also even more important aspects to pay attention to that could be life changing, as well.We’ll start by talking about some key gadgets that are hitting the market that Jason Hope seems to be fond of. Hope himself is an investor, entrepreneur, and acclaimed futurist. When he pays attention to a technology or to a product it is typically for very good reason. Hope points out a few key devices that are hitting the market that could find serious success and lead toward some more positive introspection of the Internet of Things.
The first gadget that Hope is paying attention to comes to us by way of Under Armour. Under Armour is one of the largest athletic apparel brands in the world and when they sink their teeth into a concept it is usually a good sign for that concept. Under Armour is developing a pair of athletic shoes called the SpeedForm Gemini 2 that directly interface with your smart phone in order to track your vitals, route your path, and improve your physical performance. This has huge application reach to professional sports.
The most interesting tech gadget that Hope points to comes in an ice tray and no we aren’t joking. Jason Hope points to the Smart Ice Cubes that work to monitor your alcohol intake. These cubes sit in your drink and monitor the amount of times you’ve refilled your glass. The cubes change colors based on how much you have drank and if you hit a dangerous amount an alert is sent out to a programmed contact telling them that you might need a ride.
