Printers are still important in the workplace where tangible returns are of interest.

Targeting IoT Apps

Maybe one of the reasons printers have come up so often is related to the difficulties of envisioning how this technology will be useful (not that it won't) in practice.  The ability of millions of NFC-equipped devices to communicate is a capability but it will be interesting how this translates into usefuls apps.  Lots of possibilities.

That's funny, naperlou!  I think printers are still important.  Many don't trust the web and want something tangible, especially when money is involved.

@naperlou: Good point and agreed, but what I find more interesting about printers is the latest 3D printing facility. That can be more useful for many things in the future.

Chuck, you mention printers multiple times in your article.  Who uses those anymore?  I don't think that the IoT was targeted at printers.  Those have been around for a long time and the connections between the network and the printer is a pretty well established thing.  I really don't want my refrigator to print out an alert at 2AM.

Latest Analysis
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
A decade from now, firmware development may be nothing more than software integration, grabbing vendor and third-party components, and meshing their APIs together to form a final system.
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Tune in to the Continuing Education Center next week for a comprehensive course in using the Raspberry Pi development platform.
Researchers in Australia think new types of plastic materials instead of silicon may be the key to building more efficient solar cells.
