What are the im­pli­ca­tions of the Phys­i­cal Web? Jeff Vree­land, Ohio, US SJ: While ev­ery­one is ex­cited about the abil­ity of the Phys­i­cal Web to con­trol smart In­ter­net of Things de­vices, it ac­tu­ally goes much fur­ther than that. Imag­ine a dog col­lar, a movie poster or even a mall map. Any phys­i­cal ob­ject or place can sprout a vir­tual note­card of sim­ple in­for­ma­tion. This goes back to the roots of the web, where in­for­ma­tion could be seen by any de­vice. This abil­ity to add in­for­ma­tion to any­thing could un­lock many break­through use cases.
