Welcome to the IoT Christmas

So it's been a long time since I last posted. To the point where people have even been asking me why I haven't put anything up here for a while. The long and short of it is that we've been massively overhauling and enhancing our product offering at Machina Research and I've just been completely tied up. Check out our new website if you want to know more.

As we wind down to Christmas things have eased off just a tiny bit and I'm able to share a quick post on my shopping experience over the weekend. I'm not one much given to shopping til I drop, but obviously with Christmas just around the corner I have to get out and pick up presents for my nearest and dearest. And there was a distinctly IoT skew to my day's shopping.

First stop was the Design Museum in London, where I spotted this, which neatly summed up what we're all about. Yes, eventually everything does connect.

After that it was off to John Lewis in Tunbridge Wells, and they had what I can only describe as an IoT section. Nest and Hive (you can probably just make out on the left of this pic)...

...and lots of health devices in the second, including Withings, Fitbit etc. 

This is mainstream now. Welcome to the IoT Christmas.
