My First Robot and the Internet Of Things
I imagine a day when Roomba knows when we leave the house and automatically starts cleaning. Perhaps when I lock my doors using my internet connected locks.
Get ready, the Internet of things is coming. Some things are ready and are worth your investment now. (I recommend all of the above!) Mostly, however, we are in the hype cycle where the hype outweighs the reality, so be careful in what you buy or invest in.
Now if I could just get my VCR light to stop blinking...
Until then, I will continue to have fun scaring my wife and kids by turning off lights when they are in the house while I'm traveling. And of course, keeping my air conditioning bill down by adjusting the thermostat to a higher temperature when I'm traveling even though they are home. After all, the temperature being too hot can't be my fault if I'm not home to adjust it, right...?
