2014 is finally the year of the Internet of Things. After over a decade of promises from companies poised to profit on the IoT marketplace, the requisite technologies have finally increased in availability and decreased in cost to create an explosion in interest. What was unexpected is that a lot of these companies did not predict the availability of IoT tech to increase at the same time an interest/surge in the Maker scene occurred. As a result, IoT technology is far more available to the average user than industry experts and engineers could have foreseen. While this creates an exceptional opportunity for innovation and creativity, it also means that the security of our physical world is about to become far less regulated. Without standardization and direction from members of the IoT and engineering community, our brave new technology may leave consumers open to an absurd number of new risk vectors.
