On Jason Hope and Internet of Things’ Impact on Daily Life
If you were to ask entrepreneur and tech enthusiast Jason Hope what he thinks the future of technology will look like he might be inclined to tell you that technology is going to cause us to become even more connected. Hope, who is based in Arizona, is likely is not wrong. He is a proponent of a tech paradigm that all too often goes under discussed and that is known as the Internet of Things.
The notion of people being more connected to one another and to technology than they already are might seem a bit unbelievable. How can a world where people can reach their favorite celebrities with a swipe on their iPhone screen or watch a livestream video of the wedding of friend who lives 6,000 miles away become even more connected than it already is? Hope believes that the Internet of Things will be the catalyst for the technological changes that will make people and devices even more interdependent than they already are.
The Internet of Things is exactly what it sounds like. It describes the ability of objects, not computers, to be connected to one another the way that computers are in the internet that most people are familiar with. When objects can go online then they can become even more integrated. The Internet of Things is not the sort of technological development that won’t impact the daily lives of people around the world. Rather it’s already here as many consumer goods that are on the market such as sneakers that are embedded with GPS and the ability to measure the distance the person who is wearing them runs, are already here. Tech companies already have their sights set on creating a market for people who want to be able to make their households run more efficiently with the click of a button.

Over the last few years or so both the search engine giant Google and the online retail juggernaut Amazon debuted products that could serve as the “brain” so to speak of a smart home connected by the Internet of Things. Google debuted Google Home and Amazon debuted the Echo. Both products represent the future and possibilities that Jason Hope believes the Internet of Things can hold.
