Entrepreneur Jason Hope Gives Us a Look Into How the Internet of Things is Changing the World

There was once a time where computers were the size of entire rooms. It must have been difficult for computer scientists and engineers who were around for the early days of the device’s development to imagine a world wherein computers would actually be able to sit on a desk let alone be carried around in a purse. But those days have come and gone and now hundreds of millions of people around the planet carry small computers around in their back pockets that rival the capabilities of computers that were created by high-ranking government-funded scientists just a few decades ago. Computers are still in the vanguard of technological advancements but if advocates of the Internet of Things like Jason Hope have anything to say about it that vanguard is about to get a lot bigger and a lot more interesting.

While the Internet of Things does not tend to make headlines the way that other parts of the consumer technology industry do it is still being integrated into our lives in ways that are occurring just under our noses. Fitness buffs will probably be familiar with fitbit which is an improvement on the cheap little devices that people often used to keep track of the number of steps they have taken. Fitbit does the same thing only it uses more advanced technology to do it. These days the kind of technology that allows a fitbit to measure the user’s physical activity is being used in clothing.

According to a piece written by Jason Hope the clothing company Under Armour is making smart shoes that will use GPS technology and other tools to help runners keep track of the distance, time and pace that they are running at. People who don’t want to wear a fitness tracker on their arm can just throw on their running shoes and get the same results. Hope, who is an entrepreneur based in Arizona, has noted that the reality of being connected that we experience now is likely to increase due to advancements like the Internet of Things. If people can keep track of their exercise and health just by wearing a pair of shoes the possibility exists that they will be able to compare their performance as a runner to other people in their location by accessing the data via their smart sneakers.
