You (probably) have no idea just how huge The Internet of Things already is

Few businesses have a handle on just how huge the impact of the Internet of Things (IoT) will be and already is.

That is where Nico Steyn’s company (he’s the cofounder and CEO) IoT.nxt comes in.

The IoT is the networking of “smart” devices over and above computers and phones.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Steyn for his weekly “ShapeShifter” feature.
