WELCOME TO THE FUTURE
INTERNET OF NO THINGS The biggest story of our time #INTERNETOFNOTHINGS
Demos Helsinki is the Nordic think tank
Internet of NO things?
When is the last time that you watched your mobile phone?
We look at our phone every 6th minute
every 6 minutes
In ten years time we will never look at our phones.
There is tech worth c.a 1 million krones in ANY smartphone.
Functionalities Size Price
Smart phone ”Smart Environments” ”Smart Dust”
internet = man made materials
ENERGY HARVESTING Heat, light, movement and radiowaves.
PRINTABLE ELECTRONICS Solar cells, screens, touch screens, processors….
SENSOR REVOLUTION Light, velocity, heat, moist, sound, ﬁgure, speech, ”smell”, position, rotation, proximity, gestures, etc.
This is a horrible world!
This is a wonderful world!
Bits and atoms are joining.
Uber ≈ 400 Airbnb ≈ 160 billion krones
What if all the transportation in Sweden is operated by UBER and all homes by AIRBNB?
1. Internet of NO things is already happening 2. It changes our relationship to the physical world 3. Eventually internet will disappear and become part of our environment 4. Nobody knows exactly how, but we know pretty certainly that somehow
5 nuggets from internet of NO things.
1. Super resource efﬁcient society
2. Post-choice society.
3. Postownership society.
4. Post-market society.
5. Post-energy society.
Where to now?
We have two roads to choose from.
1. Conservative agenda. Conserve what our current structures with laws, regulations and incentivising 2. Progressive agenda. Ask what should we do with this new technology, how can we harness it and keep the values we have.
The progressive Agenda = The Nordic Agenda
