During CES 2015, Saul Colt helped to introduce DADO Labs to Downtown Las Vegas. Tech enthusiasts from all over gathered at the Inspire Theatre to understand how The Internet of Things plans to connect consumers.
In 1996, he says, he read a book called “Being Digital” by Nicholas Negroponte, which really stuck with him all this time as he waited for “the future” to appear.
“He spent a big chunk of the book talking about the future of appliances and the future of machinery,” Colt says.
Negropronte actually predicted the ability for your pantry and your fridge to send you reminders about your shopping list. He may not have had the “Internet of Things” terminology at the time, but the things he predicted seem to have formed the blueprint of where we are and what we’re looking to develop.
This connected future seemed scary, though, because it seemed like only very smart people and programmers would ever be able to access such technology.
“Today is really exciting…and the reason for this whole event today: ‘The Internet of Things for the Rest of Us'”, Colt continued, makes us “lucky to be here today.”
Attendees of this event were able to interact with presenters who have been creating household appliances which were previously very complicated but are now consumer-enabled with the help of the technology provided at DADO Labs.
