Internet of Things: How I Found Out that Things Can Talk [Part I]
An Internet of Things bizarre story: Eight o’ clock in the morning. Someone is knocking at my door. I open and I find out that none is there, just a package at my feet. That’s so strange: I don’t expect any package! I hear knocking again. This time the package is clearly knocking!
Suddenly, I hear things jumping, creaking, shaking behind me. What a mess! I wonder what’s happening!
What if Things Could Talk?
Finally I turn around and I get a shock: I see chairs jumping all over, drawers opening and closing, tv and radio being turned on and off by themselves and fridge‘s display showing a big smiling face flickering! My first thought is: ok, no more sweets before going to bed!
«Daddy!». Someone has just spoken! Or I should say “something”. «Daddy! Daddy! Daddy! Daddy!». Everything in my talking home echoes back the stranger package’s words!
Then, silence. No sound, no movement, no speech anymore. Everything is like it always is. It feels like I was in a dream.. But this box I’m holding now is staring at me like it really has eyes! And it seems to have something to say..
Am I going crazy or can things talk like humans?
