The Sensor Revolution

Picture Credit: Sara Raimo, NSF

Dubbed “The Sensor Revolution” by the NSF (National Science Foundation) our industry is at the top of the game when it comes to changing the way we think of, interact with, and perceive the world. 

In the 1980’s the world saw a huge change as the PC revolution put computing at our fingertips instead of long and lengthy punchcards you always hear the old folks (sorry boss, but it is what it is) talking about.

Then something new came into play in the ‘90s when the Internet broke the laws of communication and unbound communication came into existence.

Now that we’ve been playing around in this new world for a while, it’s time for the next revolution.

We’ve been using this unbound communication platform for creating content, context, agreements, arguments, virtual social worlds, economic profit, stability, transportation systems, the spread of democracy, and create a true civil meaning for the term civilization.  However, there’s one thing we looked over when we were having all our fun using, creating, and learning new ways to communicate that has caused crucial instabilities.  The human population has exploded and there is not a single way that we can argue with the ramifications of this.  Sure we can turn a blind eye by looking at only the facts that support our blind acquisition of reality, but that’s not going to be a very fun thing for your kids to deal with later.

This is where iButtonLink and the sensor industry come into play.

By creating products that connect our binary world to the physical world we can effectively create a nervous system for a planet, our planet, the place we call… home.

As the old idea of the Internet makes its shift into the IoT (Internet of Things) it’s vital for us to utilize this infrastructure correctly.  This is where “The Sensor Revolution” begins.
