The Internet of Things and Education

With the Inter­net con­nect­ing us to many things (media, pho­tos, infor­ma­tion, etc.) can it also con­nect us to phys­i­cal objects? Can we launch appli­ca­tions on our com­puter by just touch­ing a phys­i­cal object? Can one phys­i­cal object talk to another phys­i­cal object through an Inter­net con­nect and com­mand it to do a phys­i­cal act or feed it data? The answer is yes and this phe­nom­ena is called “The Inter­net of Things”.
