If you're planning to drive in Malaysia in the next few years, don't expect to maintain a lot of privacy. The country plans to implement RFID-equipped road tax stickers that will help authorities track all vehicles, whether they're local or foreign. It'll start with a pilot program at a border checkpoint this October, but it should expand to cover the whole of Malaysia by 2018. And don't think of trying to take the sticker off -- it'll shatter and transmit a warning if you try to tamper with it.

A recent book (¡Crear o morir! 1, i.e., “create or die”) by Andrés Oppenheimer, the acclaimed Argentine journalist residing in the United States who reports with stylish and incisive prose in various media including bestsellers on Latin America’s challenges and potential, offers a very useful departing point for a current reflection on Internet of Things (IoT) innovation.
When I hear this name 'Smart Cities Internet of Things', the first topic I start wondering about is its applications. Do you know there are many cities who have opted Internet of Things or IoT technology really well? Following are the top 3 smartest cities in the world.
Santander, Spain – uses IoT technology
New York City, USA – IoT Technology Example
Aguas de Sao Pedro, Brazil – Smart City IoT Example
Is the blurring of commercial and residential design an accident? That stark clean line, that mindfully day-lit expanse, that blend of stone, wood, glass, and metal that we've found new ways to warm and add drama to and engage with, directly or as a backdrop. Commercial design and architecture have taught residential spaces ways to eliminate the obvious to make room for the meaningful, like light, like flow of space, like physical and suggested linkages between in- and outdoors.
In today’s competitive environment it is crucial to have a website which is user friendly with a design that explains your business at its best. A User Interface (UI) can be described as a platform that facilitates a smooth user experience in process of human-machine interaction. A UI makes the user-machine interaction much simple and easy via display screen, customized icons, graphical presentation, input devices and helps to builds user interest.
The healthcare business is in an upheaval of sorts. The disorder is driven by the arrival of the Internet itself, the ‘wearable’ Internet of Things (IoT) and the wider freedom and accessibility of information. In some instances we can see individuals using ‘devices’ from fitness & blood pressure monitors to blood analysis kits and onwards to start taking their healthcare into their own hands. But extensive and extended medical self-diagnosis is of course not necessarily a good idea.
This year's Internet of Things Global Summit will be taking place on October 26 & 27 at the iconic National Press Club in Washington D.C, and will once again bring together the leading representatives from the various IoT stakeholder communities.
The spectrum of security risks and conceivable attack vectors affecting loT devices is diverse, with varying degrees of probability and concerns. Focusing exclusively upon home-use scenarios, it is unlikely that hackers will want to attack and gain access to a smart TV or automation lighting control without purpose. However, a number of other scenarios are likely to raise real caution.
WASHINGTON -- Are we ready for the "Internet of Things"? Probably not. The phrase -- coined in 1999 by researcher Kevin Ashton while working for Procter & Gamble -- refers to things (cars, homes, factories, hospitals) whose performance is monitored and guided by digital networks. We already have one wildly successful example: GPS navigation that directs us to unfamiliar destinations. But countless other possibilities have excited futurists and tech companies.
Science fiction is full of stories in which the machines take over and humans are left subservient to their own creations, but according to some artists and experimenters, that need not be our future.
The work of Neil Harbisson, an Irish-born human cyborg, and Stelarc, an Australian performance artist, suggest that if we unite our bodies with technology, we can drastically extend our abilities and perception, and maybe even stay one step ahead of the robots.
The University of Isfahan is organizing the International Symposium on Internet of Things to be held on May 16-18, 2016 in Isfahan, Iran.
