 The Internet of People runs to billions of devices already. The Internet of Things will involve ubiquitous smart objects that sense and communicate directly over the internet creating better data without human intervention. Its time has come because there are now enough IP addresses available for tens of billions of items, hardware costs are now affordable and large companies are backing it.  
   
 There are far more things than people so it could overtake the IoP business eventually. In 2024, tens of billions of smart objects are likely to be involved.   Some call the Internet of Things (IoT) as encompassing the Internet of People (ubiquitous internet enabled personal electronics) but the two are very different in construction, applications and maturity.

Polydicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Polydicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) is a thermoset polymer material engineered for high resistance against heat, chemicals and corrosion. Polydicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) has high impact strength and has a tough, rigid structure. Polydicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) is utilized in applications where mechanical properties and product service environments are critical. Polydicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) is produced by polymerization of low viscosity dicyclopentadiene (DCPD) monomer by a process called ring opening metathesis polymerization (ROMP) in presence of a catalyst. Polydicyclopentadiene (pDCPD) has...
Chronic Pancreatitis Pain Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Pancreatitis is a condition wherein the pancreas becomes inflamed. Amongst the two forms of pancreatitis: acute and chronic, the latter one constitutes long lasting inflammation. Major cause of chronic pancreatitis is damage to pancreas due to heavy alcohol consumption. Hereditary disorders of the pancreas, gall stones, high triglycerides, cystic fibrosis and certain medications are the various other causes responsible for chronic pancreatitis. Children are rarely known to be affected by chronic pancreatitis, but incidences may occur in case of genetic mutations or trauma to the...
Home Insecticides Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2014 - 2020
By - Transparency Market Research
Pests are living organisms that bother or cause damage to plants, humans, animals that even include pets. Pests can be living organisms such as rats, mice and insects among others. Insects invade home, leading to contamination of food and food products. Controlling pests in and around our home is a never ending problem. To control and avoid such pests, a wide array of pesticides have been developed that controls the pests around and in the garden and home. The control of household insect pests depends upon two factors that include selection of proper management strategy and...

Bulgaria to Undertake MiG Modernization
Jan 28, 2015  
Just like Poland, Bulgaria had purchased its MiG-29s at a time when it was a strategic buffer in support of the Soviets. This, however, makes hardware upgrades a little awkward today. The step of sending the old fighters off to Russia for refurbishment is rather strange at a point of time when NATO is trying to roust the impression of additional asset rotations throughout East Europe, which...
Graphene, with slight moderations, may be used as a Semiconductor
Jan 28, 2015  
A research team from 3 U.S. based universities has demonstrated and explained a method to vary the number of electrons in a certain region or area of a piece/chunk of graphene. The team states that this is a proof of principle in the development of semiconductor devices that consist of the so called 'wonder material'. The research group also explains that the number of electrons can be easily...
