Interesting Fact:

"In the 1980s, the PC revolution put computing at our fingertips. In the 1990s, the Internet revolution connected us to an information web that spans the planet. Now, the next revolution is connecting the Internet back to the physical world we live in -- in effect, giving our world its first electronic nervous system. Call it the Sensor Revolution: an outpouring of devices that monitor our surroundings in ways we could barely imagine a few years ago. Some of it is already here. The rest is coming soon."
