how the new hardware movement is even bigger than the iot

Jon Bruna Internet of Things (IoT)
There have been a lot of imperialist buzzwords lately.
This is a popular term to look for a wealth of disciplines to capture across tech villages.
Among other things, electronics, manufacturing and robots have become the territory of the internet of things.
As a result, the meaning of the Internet of Things has expanded to include almost anything involving 1.
Technology, 2.
Body stuff
At the same time, practitioners have been trying to escape the internet of things --
Its early connection with the Internet
Refrigerator-for years.
Large businesses wishing to develop serious applications for the internet of things have put forward other terms for what they are doing, such as the Internet of Everything (Cisco)
Industrial internet (GE).
Let\'s stop and define some boundaries.
It seems to me that the Internet of Things is the result of a bigger, more important campaign to make the physical environment accessible in a way that the Internet has become accessible in the last 20 years.
I call it \"New Hardware movement \".
\"Hardware development is becoming an agile discipline and is starting to look more like software development.
Part of the reason is the new tool.
Prototype design, supply chain and marketing
Makes it easier to develop and deliver hardware in a flexible and short time.
This is also because in many places that were not previously available, computing is low cost, which makes it possible to solve problems that would have been solved before in software, where the price is expensive and inflexible in terms of hardware. (
You will see all this in pop.
In the solid factory. )
As a result, the hardware can be deployed in a variety of ways that were previously impossible, and the cost is much lower.
This means that the calculation can be extended to many places that could not have been done before.
Like corn fields and street lights.
As deployment becomes easier, smart hardware will enter almost every business --
Like from mainframes to PCs, computing is a viable component of every business, and the network enables every business to be placed on the Internet.
At the same time, the Internet of Things has become a business imperative after big data.
Data science has revolutionized every industry involved in the Internet.
The Internet of Things promises to \"internet-connected\" more industries, enabling them to adopt disciplined data
Their Web-driven business model
Enabled peers have been built.
If this way of doing business only applies to areas such as advertising, finance and online retail, then the industries that are now operating in a physical environment: logistics, agriculture, heavy industry, healthcare, mining, etc.
The new hardware movement of the internet of things is not the same thing.
The new hardware movement is driven by new tools in the following aspects: the Internet of Things is driven by: the new hardware movement is largely the promoter and promoter of the internet of things, make it possible to develop IoT systems quickly and at low cost.
As Joi Ito wrote: There are a lot of \"new hardware\" ideas that do not overlap with the internet of things: for example, developing a 3D printer does not rely on connectivity and remote data processing in any important way; on-
Smartphone motherboard micro controller
The key drivers are derivative electronic components and flexible manufacturing.
The impact of the new hardware movement is far beyond electronics and touches any industry that produces physical goods: we will soon see cars moving in an agile way.
On the other hand, the new hardware movement is the main promoter of the manufacturer\'s movement;
Its accessible prototyping tools have become a popular hobby.
I don\'t think the new hardware movement follows the idea of the internet of things directly either.
Many applications in heavy industry, for example, do not rely on agile hardware development, but use connectivity and data processing heavily.
Developing excellent hardware is a cross-domain effort.
Traditionally, hardware was developed by large teams that formally divided the functions of software development and hardware development.
Hardware developers create a platform where software developers build their systems separately, and practitioners naturally describe themselves as \"software people\" or \"hardware people \".
\"The recent changes in the hardware development process have made it possible, even essential, to become familiar with the entire process, just like a good Web developer can understand something about the \"full stack\" from both the database and the background
Front end software-
End the script and markup.
In particular, the software side has become more accessible and has opened up a beachhead position for hardware.
Because it can now program embedded systems with high quality
Advanced explanatory programming languages like Python and JavaScript, which are able to approach a sharp increase in the number of hardware, including many software developers with little hardware experience.
Solid covers topics where new hardware campaigns and IoT overlap, as well as topics for both parties.
However, we focus more on the hardware side because it is in this area that practitioners identify themselves and see the tools they need to learn.
Technical skills include industrial design, prototyping, electrical and mechanical engineering, manufacturing design, embedded-
System programming and network engineering.
The basic business topics in hardware include supply chain management and hardware marketing, which is very different from software marketing.
All of these disciplines are important in applications called the Internet of Things (
Develop a connected thermostat, for example)
And those who don\'t (
For example, create a desktop CNC machine tool or a 3D printer).
In addition to the practitioners under the hardware tag, there are fewer IoT disciplines: Data analysis, machine learning, and platform design are essential.
The key is that each of the above hardware disciplines is attached to a recognizable practitioner label: electrical engineer, industrial designer, DfM engineer, embedded system developer, etc.
All of this is aggregated to \"I am a hardware engineer\" or \"I am a software engineer working on hardware \".
The IoT discipline is also attached to the practitioner label, but they rarely roll up like \"I\'m an IoT engineer.
\"Solid covers everything that is of interest to executives, entrepreneurs, or engineers who need to understand how the hardware stack is emerging and evolving: we include practical courses on design, prototyping, manufacturing, electrical engineering, safety, machine data analysis and hardware as a business-
Whether it\'s a start-up or a business. In more far-
A vision meeting, we will report next.
To generate materials, interfaces, and tools, we include synthetic biology for the first time, Joi (among others)
The next subject of interest in the future has been identified --
Technical experts.
To some extent, there is a subject that appears here, a broad discipline whose stack consists of many hardware and software disciplines that historically compare, say, database development and front end
End of Web programming.
I \'ve written the stack before, but you can see here how it came up in a solid meeting program: physical engineering design [design track]Manufacturing [
Manufacturing trajectory]Security [security track]
Emerging software [Cutting edge track
Both the new hardware movement and the internet of things are transformative ideas, and now understanding them is as important as understanding the Internet in 1995.
The premise behind them is ultimately accessibility: it is becoming easier to start using hardware, and the internet of things will eventually remain open to the world\'s contribution, just like the ordinary internet today.
