The Internet of Things is coming to a home appliance near you–maybe in your kitchen, on a wall, or in the laundry room.
By connecting computers and mobile devices we’ve unleashed unprecedented productivity and convenience, but can we expect the same benefits from remotely accessible washing machines and fridges? Or will these connected appliances be more trouble than they’re worth?
In a recent issue of Human Infrastructure Magazine, we asked readers how they felt about home appliances getting connected to the Internet.
We had 38 respondents to our snapshot survey. A plurality (45%) said it might be useful here and there, and 16% are fully on board. But 34% want nothing to do with it (and you can put me in that category).
Here’s the full results. If you want to participate in our surveys, you can sign up for Human Infrastructure here.
