This is a great article by Autodesk VP of Corporate Strategy Jon Pittman on a topical tech subject the Internet of Things (IoT). Our team and Autodesk has been doing a great deal of thinking about a connected world and how it relates to the products you design using our software and technology.
Imagine the building or car that provides operating feedback to the original designers so that they can learn from and improve them and future designs anticipate more realistic use. Jon has over 150 IoT connected devices in his family and while that may sound like a large number. If you were to consider all the devices and tech you have around you even your Fitbit tracker, Nest thermostats, Roku, and your smart phone, you may be surprised how many you relay on to be connected in some way today. But beyond the consumer IoT there is a much bigger picture that Jon describes.
