Light by Moore'sCloud and the future of M2M

Summary:Inventor Mark Pesce talks to ZDNet about his internet-connected LED lamp, and shares his thoughts on machine-to-machine (M2M) devices.

In the future, almost everything will have an IP address and be connected to the internet. Some high-tech fridges and televisions are already internet enabled.

Networking vendor Cisco believes that by 2016, there will be an additional 9 billion internet-connected devices, so it's safe to say that other household items will soon follow down the machine-to-machine (M2M) path.

Inventor Mark Pesce has added lamps onto the M2M list, with his Light by Moore'sCloud . It is essentially an LED lamp with a Linux computer inside it that can be programmed to communicate and coordinate with other machines.

In this video, Pesce gives us a run through of his Light by Moore'sCloud, explaining how it's more than just a pretty lamp that changes colours, and the future of M2M.
