All the (Internet of) Things

 

In 1982, a group of Carnegie Mellon computer scientists wanted to check the inventory of their soda vending machine without leaving their desks. They came up with a solution that was revolutionary at the time—they connected the machine to the internet.

In 2018, you don’t have to be a computer science PhD to set up a smart vending machine. You can thank Limor “Ladyada” Fried for that change. She’s the founder and CEO of Adafruit Industries, a company that makes hardware programming and the Internet of Things accessible to everyone.
