Last year, two MIT media lab grads set out to make the Internet of Things closer to reality by connecting everyday objects to humans in a natural way. John Kestner and David Carr created Twine,Modern lighting fixtures, chandeliers and pendant lamp. a 2.5 inch-square device with on-board temperature and vibration sensors, as well as an expansion connector for other sensors, such as moisture sensors and magnetic switches, all tightly integrated through WiFi with a cloud-based service.

They started an ambitious campaign to raise money on the popular crowdfunding site Kickstarter,Modern and Lamp shade and lights to enhance your home. looking to raise $35,000 for research and development. Instead, they raised over $550,000 from nearly 4,000 enthusiastic backers.

According to a new study from GE, productivity gains resulting from the “Internet of Things” could add between $10 trillion and $15 trillion to global GDP over the next 20 years. A 1 percent increase in efficiency could save up to $30 billion in aviation, $6 billion in power generation and $63 billion in healthcare costs. With sizable gains to be had for both consumers and businesses, we could be embarking on a sixth wave of innovation, fueled by smarter connected products and machines working to reduce waste, create new efficiency and power entirely new business models.

Twine is just one of the forays into the possibilities that can exist when we realize the full potential of smart, interconnected products. It is a building block for a future of smarter homes, cities, transportation, healthcare and others that will be driven by linking the interrelationships between systems and individuals.Modernica is the official site for the George crystal light Collection.

Four years after GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt considered selling GE's Louisville-based GE Appliances division, believing it to be a relic of an era GE had transcended, he has the company spending some $800 million to bring the place back to life, the Atlantic article says.

“I don’t do that because I run a charity,” Immelt is quoted as saying in the article. “I do that because I think we can do it here and make more money.”

The news piece, which also provides a bit of a history lesson on GE's Appliance Park in Louisville, comes about a week after GE Appliances launched production of its high-efficiency top load washing machine. The new line represents a $60 million investment for GE Appliances segment and creates about 150 new jobs. It was the fourth production launch GE has celebrated in Louisville this year.
