Check out this amazing Harvard Business School Interview on the internet of things. In short, the internet of things will include all items that have an RFID chip and hook up to WiFi. This will allow the internet to track all things in real time. I find this concept kinda scary but at the same time the possibilities are endless. I feel one must consider the potentially negative implications of the IOT and how it could destroy privacy and possibly freedom. However you look at it the future is here and the internet of things is coming.
