Web of Things

Web of Things is another project as Google X Lab. It is a vision inspired from the Internet of Things where everyday devices and objects, i.e. objects that contain an embedded device or computer, are connected by fully integrating them to the Web. Examples of smart devices and objects are Wireless Sensor Networks, Ambient devices, household appliances, RFID tagged objects, etc. Unlike in the many systems that exist for the Internet of Things, the Web of Things is about re-using the Web standards to connect the quickly expanding eco-system of embedded devices built into everyday smart objects. Well-accepted and understood standards and blueprints (such as URI, HTTP, REST, Atom, etc.) are used to access the functionality of the smart objects.
