Episode 31 of the OMPodcast is now available from – iTunesdirect feed, or direct download.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow, the OMPodcast crew have started to wonder: Are smart things really that smart? Or do they add complications to our already busy lives? Pete Talbot (Visual Design Lead) and Keith Smyth (Android Team Lead) are joined by Oculus Rift owners Jerram Watters (Middleware Developer) and Andrew Besselink (iOS Developer) to ponder these exact questions.

Jerram and Andrew first take us on a detailed tour through the lens of the Oculus Rift, before delving into the depths of ‘smart’ things. With everything becoming ‘smart’, from’ bicycle handlebars to fridges, light switches, locks, and so much more, what are the security implications? What are the actual use cases? Do they make sense? How do we go from here to where we need to be in a truly connected world of smart things like in The Jetsons?
