is the network of physical devices, art objects, and other items embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and network connectivity which enable these objects to collect and exchange data.
Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing internet infrastructure.
Experts estimate that the IoT will consist of about 30 billion objects by 2020, including art works.

The mystery of ‘the glass state’ is one of the major problems of contemporary physics.
