Internet of Things and other new technology

So everyone is talking about the Internet of Things, but do we know what it’s about? We’ve delivered the future technology through the traditional method of hand-picked books. And we hope you enjoy them now and into the future!

The Internet of things : do-it-yourself projects with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and Beaglebone Black / Norris, Donald
“The Internet of Things gets you started working with the most popular processing platforms and wireless communication technologies to connect devices and systems to the Internet using sensors. You’ll learn the basics of object-oriented programming and relational databases so you can complete your projects with ease. Each project features a list of required tools and components, how-to explanations with photos and illustrations, and complete programming code. ” (Adapted from the Catalogue)

Pax technica : how the internet of things may set us free or lock us up / Howard, Philip N
“Should we fear or welcome the internet’s evolution? The “internet of things” is the rapidly growing network of everyday objects–eyeglasses, cars, thermostats–made smart with sensors and internet addresses. Soon we will live in a pervasive yet invisible network of everyday objects that communicate with one another.¬†Philip N. Howard discussed the empowerment, privacy, political manuipulation around the new era, Pax Technica.” (Adapted from the Catalogue)


Designing the Internet of things / McEwen, Adrian
“Take your idea from concept to production with this unique guide: how to successfully combine hardware, embedded software, web services, electronics, and cool design to create cutting-edge devices that are fun, interactive, and practical. If you’d like to create the next must-have product, this unique book is the perfect place to start. Both a creative and practical primer, it explores the platforms you can use to develop hardware or software, discusses design concepts that will make your products eye-catching and appealing, and shows you ways to scale up from a single prototype to mass production.” (Adapted from the Catalogue)

Smart homes and communities : fostering sustainable architecture / Friedman, Avi
“The term “smart” in reference to homes and communities describes places whose function is related to or affected by information technology.¬† Designers and planners are paying significant attention to the design of dwellings and neighborhoods and are considering new economic realities, by integrating innovative digital appliances, which are also helping to foster economic sustainability for future generations.” (Adapted from the Catalogue)

Sustainable luxury : the new Singapore house : solutions for a livable future / McGillick, Paul
“Singapore is celebrated as one of the most livable cities in Asia, and Sustainable Luxury shows how the prosperous, forward-looking nation is pioneering innovative solutions for environmental, economic, social, and cultural issues faced the world over.” (Adapted from the Catalogue)


Wireless-wise families : what every parent needs to know about wireless technologies / McLean, Lyn
“How much do you know about mobile phones and other wireless devices and the radiation they emit?’Smart’ families are exposed to wireless radiation from ‘smart’ devices. ‘Wise’ families make informed decisions about using wireless technologies safely. This book, by consumer advocate and educator Lyn McLean, shows you in simple, practical terms what you need know to live wisely in our ever more connected world.” (Adapted from the Catalogue)

What to think about machines that think : today’s leading thinkers on the age of machine intelligence
“Stephen Hawking recently made headlines by noting, “The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race.” Others, conversely, have trumpeted a new age of “superintelligence” in which smart devices will exponentially extend human capacities. No longer just a matter of science-fiction fantasy (2001, Blade Runner, The Terminator, Her, etc.), it is time to serious consider the reality of intelligent technology, many forms of which are already being integrated into our daily lives. World’s most influential scientists, philosophers, and artists answered one of today’s most consequential questions: What do you think about machines that think? ” (Adapted from the Catalogue)
