Special Discounts for Educators and Students

What is IoT?

Technology changes rapidly, and the Internet of Things represents the next wave. When we connect devices to the internet, we solve problems in new and exciting ways. For example, aircraft engines with IoT-equipped sensors can order replacement parts before the engine shows signs of trouble. IoT enables proactive maintenance, which saves lives.

IoT is new, roughly where the web was in the early 1990s (before Amazon or Google). Come to WindyCityThings and learn about IoT before everyone else. There’s still time to be an early adopter in IoT.
