What is the Internet of Things?
We live in a time when everything starts to automate. Try to ask your parents, how they lived, when they have 20.

If you have a flight to your vacation. You can also notice that at the Airport the computer itself recognizes whether your face matches the picture on the passport and only if you have a bad match with your photo on your ID a physical worker will check you out.
Look at all those smart homes. When you are going home, you can set your temperature, turn up music, open the blinds and many other things are already automated.
When you have an accident, the car will call you an ambulance!
