Futurist Jason Hope has become famous for his dedication and belief in the emerging “Internet of Things” where the everyday objects in our lives work together wirelessly to make things easier for us. He recently reviewed some top gadgets that people are now seeing in their homes.
Athletics is one new frontier in the IoT. For men who love running and sports, shoes are about to become the next tool in fitness. Smart shoes can track the same basic features as any smartphone app on the market, like distance, speed and times. GPS data is even included, so all aspects of a workout can be evaluated, measured, and improved on, just by wearing the right shoes. According to rumor, Microsoft is even designing earbuds that will communicate with your phone on heart rate and activity levels, and provide the right music to maintain your heart rate.
The home is one of the most talked about areas for the IoT. Gadgets can now control your home appliances, so on hot days you can turn on the AC during your commute for a cool, comfortable house when you walk in the door. The same goes for lights, washers, dryers, or lock and unlock your front door from your smartphone. Landscaping and irrigation links to the IoT can tell you how much you’ve watered and control the sprinklers from wherever you are, which will save a lot on future water bills.
Jason Hope has spent years developing and researching how technology can improve our lives, whether it’s going through the motions of day-to-day or cutting edge medical research for treating the worst diseases.
With his venture capital partners, Jason is cultivating future generations of entrepreneurs like himself who can guide the world into the future. Jason Hope also works closely with many charities in his native Arizona.
