Abstract

How do we observe the world around us? The human body is a marvel of ingenious sensory apparatus that allow us to see, hear, taste, and even feel through touch anything we come into contact with or get near. Even our brains are capable of storing visual and auditory events recalling them at will. With the Internet of Things, our goal is to leverage the Internet so that we can extend our sensory capabilities to understand more of the world around us. In effect, we can use the Internet as a sensory conduit. That is the true power of the Internet of Things.
