A new infographic demonstrates how the internet of things has overtaken the internet of people. The article notes, “While we were asleep at the switch learning to ‘plus one’ on Google, the Internet of Things (IOT) just exceeded the number of people that reside on the planet. Beyond just smartphones and tablets, that number of ‘things’ that connect to the Internet will only continue to scale as the growing number of connected gizmos, appliances – and even cows – are coded and catalogued to send messages to the Web.”

It continues, “Dave Evans at Cisco noted that “there are more devices tapping into the Internet than people on Earth to use them.” How is that possible you ask? Well an infographic the firm just published provides us insight with a visual snapshot of the increase in “things” connected to the Internet – and how they will serve us in the very foreseeable future.”
