Jason Hope Watches as Airlines Embrace the Internet of Things
The Internet of Things is coming and we are at the point that it cannot be denied. Of course, futurist and tech entrepreneur Jason Hope has made a career out of seeing these sorts of things come to fruition. Jason Hope has been touting the Internet of Things for the past few years and now it seems like his great stake is finally starting to pay off. What is the Internet of Things (IoT)? Well, it is the functional way that the internet will interface with all of our every day life. Jason Hope brought up some salient points on how the airline industry, one of the largest industries in the world, is already embracing the Internet of Things.
Let’s look at how Virgin Atlantic is using the Internet of Things to create a safer world of travel. Virgin Atlantic has their Boeing 787 airplanes completely interfaced with the internet. From the tip of the nose to the back of the tail, each piece of the airplane is interfaced in digital fashion in order to provide live updates as to the stability of the airplane. Can you see how this dramatically improves the safety of airline travel? Airline attendants will know immediately if anything goes wrong. This is the Internet of Things and this is just a single example of how it is going down. The Internet of Things is blending so much more into the rest of our life, more than just the airline industry in the world.
Jason Hope has been touting the Internet of Things for awhile now and the more it comes into fruition the more the rest of the world will revel in it. Jason Hope has done a great many things in his career as a futurist and a lot of it boils back down to his own research at the SENS Foundation. The SENS Foundation is on the cutting edge of many different technologies and right now the Internet of Things is on their mind.
