Samsung looking to the future

Samsung are placing their future in the 'Internet of Things' - the idea that nearly every object in everyday life will be connected to the internet. Not just phones and tablets but fridges, clothing, cars and eventually our entire homes.

In the opening keynote speech of CES 2015, Samsung SEO Boo-Keun Yoon, spoke about the Internet of Things over and over again, announcing that by 2017 90% of Samsung products will be focused on IOT. Though no real announcements were given on specific products or launches, it was clear Samsung are firm believers in the future of IOT, as Boo-Keun Yoon said: "IOT will change more than just our industry, that's because it will touch every aspect of our lives."

The Internet of Things is something which the technology and electronics industry have been speaking about for some time, perhaps now this has been made a key focus by such a large company, we will actually start to see mass connectivity happen - and soon.
