The Internet of Things refers to the billions of physical devices around the world that are now connected to the internet, all collecting and sharing data. 
The Internet is considered to be one of the greatest inventions. The word is an acronym for interconnected network and it emerged in the US in the late 60s. Defense Advance Research Projects Agency (DARPA) implemented the ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Networks), which was an earlier version of the Internet developed by the US Department of Defense. It was designed for the purpose of military communications that would be secured.
