I was watching a rerun of the Big Bang Theory TV show (my wife and I are big fans) last week and there was a pretty funny clip with the guys experimenting with the Internet of Things. It was in the beginning clip just before the credits in the episode called “The Cooper-Hofstadter Polarization” that originally aired on March 17, 2008.
This made me think back at how far ioBridge has come and where they were at that time. The funny thing about it is the technology they are simulating could have just as well be using an ioBridge module. Public access for internet users to control things in their house was something only super geeks could do at that time. At the time this episode aired ioBridge only had a working prototype of public internet interactivity with Jason’s original fishcam that open and closed a gator’s mouth in his fish tank.
Obviously ioBridge has come a long way since that prototype, but it’s interesting to see how the ideas have been bouncing around for years but only now is it starting to get the attention where the number of Internet of Things devices now and in the future are in frequent conversations.
For your viewing pleasure I was able to find it on my search through YouTube and wanted to share it with all the Internet of Things fans out there.
