Miniature WiFi device developed by Stanford engineers supplies missing link for the Internet of Things

Futurists and technology prognosticators have been known to make starry-eyed projections about the so-called Internet of Things. It ‘s a vision of a world where everything – from implantable biosensors and wearable devices to smart cars and smart home sensors – confers and collaborates wirelessly to make the world a better and more interconnected place. To date, this remains largely a dream. To become reality, the Internet of Things will require a new class of tiny, energy-efficient WiFi radios to pass commands to and from the network to a myriad of devices.”
