Jason Hope predicts up to $6 trillion invested in Internet of Things

Jason Hope, one of Arizona’s most prominent technology entrepreneurs, has recently began blogging and writing articles for different outlets in an effort to raise awareness among up-and-coming entrepreneurs of the incredible opportunities and massive investment that will be taking place within the Internet of Things industry.

Broadly defined, the Internet of Things includes all devices and objects that are going to become or already are wired into communications networks. Currently, these devices include everything from car stereos to refrigerators. But Hope says that the list will expand at an ever increasing rate until, soon, nearly every object that people interact with will have data collection and communication abilities.

This could extend to objects that were once considered dumb, such as doors and windows. These objects may be built with automated opening and closing capability, at least for important locations within homes and buildings. This will all tie into the central heating and cooling system, which will have broad autonomy to optimize things like energy efficiency and winter building temperature.

But Hope also sees the internet of things extending to devices that are not yet common but will become commonplace. Devices such as drones may take over many functions that delivery vehicles once had. This can already be seen with some efforts by companies like Amazon to use drones for large scale commercial delivery. But these functions could easily be extended to people’s local grocery stores as well. Soon, says Jason Hope, we may be living in the high-leisure-time utopia that the Industrial Revolution promised but never delivered.
