There have been major advances made in nanotechnology in recent years . As these advances become more profound, they are also becoming more practical. One technology that will make the practical application of nanotechnology more adaptable is the IoT. One expert has coined this next natural step for IoT, “the Internet of Nano Things (IoNT)”. The post that follows explains more about how this fusion will occur, and offers seven real world examples of applications that will leverage this new fusion.
The IoT is one of the most disruptive technologies to surface in modern history. There were 7.6 billion active IoT devices by the end of 2019, and the technology is still in its infancy. As nanotechnology paves the way for the Internet of Nano Things (IoNT), adoption of these devices will skyrocket.
Nanotechnology, which involves tech less than 100 nanometers in size, is the natural next step for the IoT. Today’s IoT devices use microprocessors and microsensors, and they’re sure to get smaller as technology improves. As nanoscale tech becomes more functional and accessible, it’ll take the IoT to new heights.
Here are seven ways that will happen.
