PROBESEVEN - A Sketch on Micro-interactions and Animations in UI Design!

It has rather become the need of the hour to create designs in human-centric approach.  This calls for the brilliance in micro-interactions which are created and shows up the simplicity of use and better understanding of the process, even if the logic behind it is complicated the task can be handled in a friendly manner with good UI. Bringing to you a sketch on Micro-interactions and animations in UI design for better user-experience.  Let’s have a feel of it.

To create a successful application, it has to be started in simple and clean layout filled with micro-interactions and animations.

Apart from the clean layouts, Micro-interactions and animations plays a vital role in guiding the user throughout the application to finish his task without any chaos.

So, what are micro-interactions and how they are used in design? “A micro interaction is a small and simple user interaction with an user interface.”

 For example, Here you would observe the changing colour of the LIKE button.

1.Like_Final

When you press the “like” button social media apps, you see that your like button changed the color or became inactive, the button informes you that you have done the action that is the case of micro-interaction.

These types of  micro interactions present mostly in all user-interfaces. A few are listed below for a quick re-cap.

  1. Like Button in social Media apps
  2. Play and Pause button in music apps
  3. Call to action buttons in websites
  4. Status and progress bars-uploads and downloads
  5. Auto-fill Text boxes
  6. Hover Zoom in E commerce websites etc.,
Why Micro-interactions and Animations?

Micro-interaction captures the user’s attention and guides him through the various steps of the user flow. At the same time, he gets the delight of a pleasant user-experience.

3.form_final

This login animation is a good example of micro-interaction, tend to do, several different things:

  • Help the user manipulate something
  • Communicate a status
  • See the result of an action
  • Preventing user error

Another quick example to show how animation and motion can help maintain continuity. Note how the card expands from the point of origin and enables the user to perform an activity.

2.Select_final

Designing Micro-interactions

According to Dan Saffer, the interaction designer who literally wrote book on this subject, all micro interactions should have a the following.

Trigger – All the micro-interactions started by the system user. They are initiated by the trigger.

Rules – This is a sequence or flowchart for micro-interactions to how it works.

Feedback – The feedback from micro-interactions after triggering.

Loops and Modes – Length of micro interaction.

Tips to follow when you designing micro interactions:

Simple, straightforward:  It is recommended and supposed to be small and simple, Do not overthink on it.

Design for repeated use: The user should feel comfortable even on 100th time of use.

Keep it to the point: Do not add more than necessary, if your app has a single color scheme, micro-interactions should use the same hues so that the visual connection to the parent design or app is there for users.

Target time-saving ideas:  It needs to be catchy and simple.so that the user easily finds it and works over it which results in time saving.

Conclusion

Micro-interactions are an important part of digital design project. For efficient micro-interactions, designer has to think about the design, psychology, programming, human activity etc. Thorough analysis of the target audience and their human activity, the designer can design micro-interactions which makes the user-interface to be more stylish and usable.

PROBESEVEN - New-gen innovative approach to practice at work place!

blog image

If you truly wish to learn and practice the art of innovative thinking at your work place which transform to support your dream career miraculously, you are at the right spot and here is your tips for the innovative practice.

If at all you wish to progress in your career and climb up the career ladder it may eventually take about 5 years to 10 years to get into the managerial position. There is something called work injury which may be experienced as you look up the top view and keep going which blinds the present flow of operation. Oh yes, may be I’m talking about common person and you could be an extraordinary intellectual. Let me tell you there may be quite something which I would share to you rather warn you I should say…You should know how to delegate, delegating to the team is something not so common as it required to meet the quality and the challenge is the task deadline. Coming again would you tell something other than, expecting the team to work as good as you, if yes then it might lead to uncertainty.

You would now prefer to play more safe and would you not wish to accomplish more as a team work, work in a more organised manner, deliver more than expected, build a high performing team then you may have to innovate things in more positive manner in your work place.

Here are few process you may have to practice to reinvent your abilities to optimistic work flow.

1

Forget “Can’t” seek possibilities to “Can”

Generally speaking we deliver a “can’t” note when things are not positive and when there is a block to penetrate, rather than walking off with it why not think in ways of possibilities to make it happen. You may also tend to justify your “can’t” statement saying so that the story might happen to be different if ….this had happened or ….that had happened, now let’s talk it the other way, try to figure out the “can if…” Scenario before confirming the “can’t” statement. You might ask an example over this but I would say that this is mere experience of each of us in our career journey or when we work towards our personal targets.

2

 Start to think as an entrepreneur, become an intrapreneur!

Think it your own success and deliberate the authentic concept in your work flow. Ownership to the access mode of your responsibilities in the most innovative manner requires a well-built thinking capacity of an entrepreneur. I would say the emerging trend of encouraging intrapreneur which calls for the complete functions of the entrepreneur but been applied within the existing organization.

Quite some time back when queried about the training on intrapreneur and entrepreneur, you might have thought a despite the fact about it but would it not be same as I wish to share, getting profound over this might let you set upfront to take charge over your responsibilities. This is what the innovative thinking that expects and much common difference would be that enterpreneurs would work on their own at their own will while intrapreneurs work out their ideas and proposals only on the management approvals.

3

Encourage ‘Impossible’ within you

I know it is weird but why not is my question, have you ever though this way that more innovations are happening only in the context of impossible. Wait! Now is not the time to conclude, as meant to handle the impossible seeks much inner strength and creativity. It would some time be like kicked off from the comfort zone and from the perspective of the experienced you may feel boozy, your perspiration to get to do the impossible is the step out impact of the impossible.

Explanation over this, may create a curiosity for example, when your minds are set to think on the impossible platform and the impossible ways of handling the existing problems then it is quite sure you are low in competition among your peers and when with the right match over the efforts and the foresight miracles happen which kicks up your spirits to the ultimate achievement. Easy impossible, this may sound an oxymoron but it carries much for achievement and innovations.

4

Break through to work on your own constraints

You may be or your mind been activated for innovation, if I rightly say the innovative chip in your brains will make more things happen. Now what I’d discuss is we are not free to explore always and might have to fight up on constraints. Take it up optimistically by putting the constraints on yourself. Such challenges are proven to slow the progress and delay the achievements but don’t you think it cannot be eradicated as well.

Work it on deliberately and keep the constraints as given by yourself to you, finding solutions are simple, create a momentum and work for the progress when the progress gets started to proceed it goes its own way to achievement.

Here you are with these wonderful modern talent thoughts. Remember that innovation cannot be a task but needs to be a habit. Nothing goes vein when practiced systematically and consistently.

You are now to challenge yourself for innovation and be a creative workforce who would rather have nothing to grumble but embrace the challenges and limitations.

 

 

PROBESEVEN - Why all the popular Biometric Authentication is taken off by the successful body odour authentication?

Biometric Authentication_edit

The popularity of Biometric Authentication bridged to the many innovation seen in this field. Biometric systems like finger print, retinal scan, face, voice, iris, signature and hand geometry are much in use and are transforming to wear and tear, due to its several drawbacks. Thinking in the aspect of uniqueness which keeps 85% away from failure is defined to be the new innovation in biometric which is the human body odour based bio-metric.

Most of the business processes and the companies like financial institutions which deals with huge data and monetary system demands a high authentication with security like never before. This gave rise to the highly successful personal identification which is the body odour bio-metric authentication.

A brief and a glance over the prevailing biometric systems which are been in use extensively and the short comings experienced.

Finger Print authentication one of the early innovation…

The pattern of fingerprint of an individual gets mapped in this system by comparing the ridges and furrows within the template. The fingerprint accustomed to the device initially examines at the high level in the database and then better comparisons with evaluation are delivered as outcome.

Shortfalls when discussed are that when affected by skin conditions and association with forensic applications the system fails its recognition.

It you think of speed, it proves with Iris and Retinal Scan biometric.

This is discovered as the fastest forms of biometric system. The iris and retina are scanned by a low intensity light source and the image is correlated with hoarded patterns in the database.

The shortfalls of this system is its high difficult to use and very intrusive, many would find it sensitive over using it.

Compares with your digital face template!

Something that embroils the scanning of entire face and critical points, the areas are checked and compared with the database stored which is the facial biometric.

Encounters few shortfalls and the prime drawback of facial scanning occurs between identical twins.

This does work good to prevent illegal authentication.

The accent, the rhythm and the stress differ from one person to another. The voice biometric is based on this concept.

Yes, does not serve with complete option as it requires large amount of storage and chances are the voice can change.

Something that has been improvised from finger prints is the Hand and Finger Geometry…

In affiliation with the fingerprint systems, the modern systems use this technique. It is based on the concept of overall dimensions of the hand, angle between the fingers and length, shape etc.

When talk about its drawback, it emits high equal error rate and does not prove good when applied on too young or too old people.

Here we are with the recent innovation and exploring the Odour Biometric System!

The most recent evolution in the biometric stream is the Odour Biometric System which is been brilliantly innovated based on the sniffing strategy. The so-called Electronic Nose or e-Nose is great to understand.

Recent analysis confesses the uniqueness of human odour. By then, like how dogs know several persons has exclusive and detectable body odour. When correlated with the other biometric systems it has the lower error rate of 15%. The main advantage is that it can never replicates human odour. Body odour exhibits strong authentication when compared with the other systems.

Due to the advancement in Sensor Technologies and improvements in the matching algorithms, make systems both secure and cost effective. Hence, the number of researchers has been identified as this the feasible system for personal identification.

Every Individual can be identified by their body odour which portrays the chemical composition. The Sensing System determines the odour from the environment. Gas chromatograph and spectrometer and array of chemical sensors are the types of sensing systems.

The National Institute for Medical research in London exposed as due to the natural body temperature, current of warm air surrounds the human body and it is relatively one third to one half-inch thick, and it travels up and over the body at a rate of 125 feet each minute.

So, the Researchers consider this technology could be used in airports, border checkpoints or anyplace where photo recognition is mandatory.  In this domain, Odour Identification system is a peculiar idea and when carried out will strengthen the security systems. The pupil will never know he is been monitored. Therefore, this type of new sensors that allow the capture of body odour can provide a less threatening solution because the identification could be simultaneously captured while crossing the system and it does not require any special contact with the device.

It is definitely novel idea it saves time, saves cost over password authentication and this electronic nose system would soon be seen a great welcome in various government and industrial sectors.

PROBESEVEN - Full-fledged momentum right at the first quarter of 2016!

Among the many aspects the team of PROBESEVEN is also excited about events that takes the team in full-fledged momentum right at the start of this New year 2016. Brilliance has been experienced which allows to take to new heights during each of the periodic current year events.

We might have been looking at the dates but most interesting was the month of January with the Pongal Celebration with paying tribute to the lord and well we did explore the Data Privacy Day.

The limiting aspect of these events were the time but however our enthusiasts worked out to grab few minutes to make it interesting. Our team dynamics Yogeshwaran and Sathish did take this forward and made an interactive session penetration through the layers of security.

By the time the month drew to an end we did happen to look at the dates, more likely the kind of events in the month of February, yes! one in first week, the mid-month event and last week carried more cheers.

We did try something that has never before happened and made every single event with ultimate activities encouraging team participation.

Came the Draw a Doodle day,

Honestly not sure if the team was good to try and willing to doodle in such busy schedule. Happens every now and then and wonder not if it’s the end of the first week. To our surprise our passionate creators Nagamani and Madesh jumped into co-ordination and made this a break-through session of relaxation. It cheered up the team and the competition soar to great heights. The best few took a prominent place in our display boards.

Hold on till we share more about the year quarter, if you have any feedback to share do include in the comments session we love to secure.

Fortunate to celebrate the Book Giving Day!

The team did intend to check on the early bird interest to co-ordinate and our team members Jayaraj & Yogesh choose to organize an innovative and digital exchange of books with the automation concepts, it seemed to relate to our industry and glorious were our team to gift and be gifted. It was like a brush through of library of books from the past, present and future.

Landed with the Floral Decoration Day!

Sounded auspicious and proved to be a day of goal setting, success and got a chance to explore the nature of reality. The most silent event but spread across much happiness and inspiration.

Our spontaneous team members Vishnu Priya and Goweri Sankari created a floor carpet with the most chosen fresh flowers which gave abundance happiness and did some magic using the law of attraction.

Peeped into the month of March 2016 and got all the required motivation!

Although Team appreciation been in practice it runs quiet often and doubtlessly with the proven improvements. Just not the say as we have ample workshops, seminars, project skill developments with are interactions of our project lifestyle design. Our enthusiasts Bala Sundaram and Nagamani did make it astonishing which identified towards personal growth, leaning inspiration and better team building.

This event did give all the possibilities to improve on the focus of self-development, raising spirit for better and bigger achievement.

Keep it a secret.. just sharing a pass-by conversation “What a nice way to motivation, if only we have four such events a year we could be enough adored,  I learnt more than expected and will cherish my dedication to my work forever”.

If you have few minutes to spare I would talk more on how each of us in the team were building up a great platform and how the cool air spread among all.

Here it goes Manoj says, “It was a pleasure being associated with the team and the company, ample appreciations from the known and unknown folks cheered me, it was something more than the most valuable gift. Feeling privilege to say united delivering works to the world class projects”.

Final one for this quarter we landed in Green Plantation Day!

Exploring the path of saving the environment, going green, energy conservation, real life purpose of protecting nature, developing techniques to overcome global warming. The do-gooder Gowtham and Madesh did make it a noteworthy event. It was a mind opener event which carried out brain stroming session.

The team worked on the written statement as to their responsibility to save earth which included ideas like avoiding newspapers, waste no food, terrace farming, plant more trees, conserve energy, drive in cycle if reachable, car pooling, member in social events, encourage no plastics, keep empty the land fills, promote agriculture and much more. Saplings were gifted to the team as a first step to the big mission.

Looking forward to have your reply and comments to hr@probeseven.com , you are also welcome to share your CV for an opportunity with us. Just being aware that though we’ll receive many feedback and CV you could be sure we would send each one a personal reply.

PROBESEVEN - Time Management, The right fit for each individual as good as their personal belonging!

Have you ever wondered that you are pending with stuffs which could be actually done rightly. Most of us at some point of time would have experienced this situation. Put a reason out statement on why you were not been able to do so long, what were the challenges faced for not been able to adhere.

You may be a proficient planner and what I wish to share here is that time management works different for each one.  Time Management, The right fit for each individual as good as their personal belonging. With the right fit for the individual as unique as their personal belonging which you choose with great interest and attention.

Here is the list which of strategies which would do magic and it works best for me that encourages me to share for your benefit.

Plan your day

The primary things that are available to plan your day would be to make a list and set deadlines.

Make a list

Making a list of things you wish to attain for the day needs to be penned. The idea here is you know the priorities, your capabilities, your SWOT analysis, your schedule. Then quietly list down the list with the idea of making it more practical for you to achieve. Since it is planned for you and by you there could all changes to win over it. Keep it better organised by listing the plan for the day based on personal list, home list and work list.

Set Completion

Well this is no child’s play or a mere show off, if there is a set to completion it is best to stick over it and get the task done absolutely the best possible way. The world changes every minute and the universal strategy is act immediately and instantly.

Act over the schedule

“Your thoughts, conversations and activities need to circle around your task” is the prime idea over the successful time management.

Here I wish to share few points which eases your commitment towards the set goals and promises over massive target achievement. Relatively let us focus more on the task completion and time management which goes hand in hand for the great profits.

Encourage delegation, having control over your responsibility and quality of delivery is one great talent and if you possess this you are all qualified to delegate the task. Try to use this strategy where ever required and you could soon see yourself saving on time.

Lead with Perfection

You might be all set and here is the stage which demands some balance. The clever part of the overall time management comes here which in other words you call it prioritization.

Set the task with the right priority – label each task in terms of ‘Important and Crucial’. Now you would find your list in the order of important and crucial. “The one in the list which is most important and most crucial will be the first task to be attended. Followed by it will be either important and most crucial / crucial and most important.” This strategy will be for the overall betterment in terms of time management and task completion.

time management1

These will help you transform your day successful with more cheer and joy. Yet is another aspect to carry out on daily basis. Yes! it’s Reward yourself.

Celebrate and reward yourself on your task accomplishment and when you do it you will get self-motivated and do give yourself the privilege to draw your day towards happy ending.

PROBESEVEN - The rise of BYOA and BYOM from BYOD!

Istock_2

The days with the concept of BYOD (Bring your own device) is transforming and far reaching to the corporates and IT companies as the BYOA (Bring your own apps).
It proves to make a great sense that they become an integral part of the individual and which defines the person in a better way.
In fact it is not astonishing to hear few eminent  to talk about the BYOM (Bring your own mind) which proves most essential for the enterprise to experience success.

Denied with these will be a charge of the concern as the top talents gets eliminated and so why not? Think it futuristic and join the moment with the spirit of individualism.

BYOD has proven as an acknowledgement to the need of individualism in the work space. This had taken a leap and seen encouragement over BYOA which progresses to bring your own apps to the work place in a way they use personally for their individual collaboration, thinking, tracking and managing stuffs. Although this seem to be undeniable it does not go that easy as it takes the concern of security and consistency.  If need to look into more details the recent enterprise are seamlessly into such concepts encouraging employees for BYOA which also means Build your own app.

The swift transformation are a part of today’s high tech world as the use and penetration of smart mobiles are much greater and it proves to be a multi-fold bloom when compared to the other devices such as desk top and lap top computers including the tablets. The billions of smart phones hitting the market are increasing in percentage and when it is 2017 the other devices like laptops would get stale.

So, when you think of what’s Next? As most companies have enriched their employees with the BYOA extending the ultimate freedom.

This has triggered another concept whichis buzzing in the IT industry which is the MDM system that justly is Mobile Device Management which is been designed to the security at both ends for the company and the workforces.  The company and the employees are driven by the system which detects the authentication, tracks the policy breaches and also alerts the unauthorised access if any. It protects the overall honesty as the consequences will turn to be costlier when deducted. The recent survey has deducted that the companies deny the use of own devices does not attract top talents which is one prime reason for the companies to get attracted to BYOD. Although the challenges are ample it does prove to be the wake up for the new IT spectrum. On the other hand it also transforms from Bring your own to Build your own which is easily possible to detect the benefits and the barriers in the practical scenario.

Transformation Technology, the end of restrictions!

Istock_1

This concept is simple to handle by the technology companies with their full-fledged talents and the ability to integrate more security that is reliable. It would soon land up in the concept of BYOM bring your own mind keeping you closer to your personal life and this may prove to out ridge the official and professionalism concepts but another reality what is been experienced in the developed countries are that they gain high potential output along with much more dedication and sincerity which supports in their business growth. The waves would quickly spread and expected to be a part of every company universally.

Cool and secure makes it enriching and why not when the concept of work from home gets popular this concept of Bring your own app and bring your own mind gets closely related to the ultimate and comfortable thinking process in their own way. Clearly it is just not bringing your device, apps or mind to work but for using them for the enterprise.

Keep in track for more to come related to the technology advancement and how this concept is been appreciated across the globe. Need your share of ideas and why not drop few words in this comments session.

 

PROBESEVEN - Digital Transformation for any business, Implemented for profits!

Digital transformation

Digital Transformation directly implies the complete change in the way the business functions and when in it digital transformation it shifts from the existing mode of data to the complete digitalization.

Digital Transformation for any business, Implemented for profits! Will this be a kind to heavy thing to think or adapt, the difficulty to understand the protocols and technology?  

Oh, yep! It may be so for many but the best part of the current scenario is the leverage of simplicity in technology and processes. The shift to the new platform is also consummate and the best implementation can be experienced with today’s technology.

The App world

This cannot be called meaningless and the evolving technology is highly business savvy which keeps you embrace your business all time. It is a known fact that a huge volume are business processes has been taken over by technology and most appropriate would be say the CLOUD.

The progressed concept which I would wish to quote is the XaaS (Anything/Everything as a Service) right from SaaS, Paas, Iaas, DRaaS, DaaS which has been prevailing and today it is more generically quoted application to anything and everything as a service.

This is definitely an inspiration and overwhelming that encourages all the business processes irrespective of its complication to get into digitalization.

Implemented for success & profits

Assertive over switching to the digital platform is the right thought without controversy. It is proven to betterment both internal in the organisation and external with the business stakeholders.

Most business experience swiftness, accuracy, profits and customer satisfaction which shows the measurable success on its best functioning.

The Challenges

The incorporated technology should mean to the success of the organization and well met with the company goals. It would be  measurable when it gets in place rightly as a glib professional.

The overall challenge is the implementation part that needs to take place perfectly without leading to any confusion and breakage. A defined digital transformation should be the goal plan and milestone to adapt.

Advantage over Adaption

When you think to confirm over the digital transformation which normally the companies and organisation would adapt it is quite impressive and would state to suit the business needs of any industry across the globe.

  • Don’t you think a professional and well defined Analytical tool would do a great job in the measuring of the customer reaction and the understanding the requirements based on the behaviour of the customers to make any marketing campaign a grand success.
  • The next big think which is supportive for the business process is the Mobile apps which aids the organisation to connect with their stakeholders and specially the customers as and when they need, in fact an all-round collaboration.
  • Remote working has become a positive trend and as popular as BYOD/CYOD usage. Companies look for platform which collaborates their customers, employees, suppliers and other stakeholders. This gains them lavish time and energy to save on money too.
  • One another aspect to stay on cloud and online is the SEO leverage for match the efforts of sales and marketing. They include the social media which puts together for effectively using the web platform.
The changes experienced

When entering the digitalization it categories into the customer experience and the business success with its effective operations. The balance experienced creates value to the customers and it directly reflects over the ROI and customer satisfaction which are key expectations of any businesses.

It is also a great efficiency over the operations, better bonded customer relationship, better employee morale, share of effective collaboration to meet the vision of the company.

These indications make it more encouraging for many companies and organisations to be a part of the digital world.

Verdict

The eye-opener here is that you don’t have to walk behind or follow any concept until you embrace the requirement. The requirements here is meant all your business priorities, your goals and vision. This would deliberate the greater impact on the digital operations.

Pretty sure that there are no organisation without an vision, all business will required the mobile convenience, popularity like the better online presence and would require anything that will assist in the success of the business.

When all these potential would promise success then is the power of the digitalisation will positively interact and meet the revolution.

PROBESEVEN - A Know-how: Yii 2.0 Installation via Composer

Yii_v3

Hello world of developers! This is something which I worked on recently and would say that it is apt for the requirements.
As most of you would be aware of Yii framework that is suitable for large and complicated web applications, what I wish to add is that it is amazing when I explored that it provides swift development and provides great flexibility with its component based design and up gradation.

Stating this have documented the step by step process of Yii 2.0 Installation via Composer.

Let’s get Started:

It a cool thing to download the composer if you do not possess.

Download composer from getcomposer.org.

On Linux and Mac OS X:  You’ll need to run the following commands.

curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

On Windows: You’ll need to download and run Composer-Setup.exe.

To check the composer installation, Type the below code in command prompt

composer

composer

Once you complete the Composer installation, you can head towards the installation of Yii by running the following commands under a Web-accessible folder:

You could compose this package in the system.

composer global require “fxp/composer-asset-plugin:1.0.0-beta2″

installation

On completion of the composer, You may proceed to:

Type your Github auth access token key during the installation

Set your xampp htdocs directory in the cmd prompt.

Install Advanced Application Template

You have few options to have installed the advanced application template. Look further for the one that is suitable.

To install “advanced application template”, use the following code

composer create-project yiisoft/yii2-app-advanced projAdvanced 2.0.0-beta   

To obtain the up to date amendment:

php composer.phar create-project –prefer-dist –stability=dev yiisoft/yii2-app-advanced /path/to/yii-application

  To obtain the latest and stable during installation:

composer create-project –prefer-dist –stability=dev yiisoft/yii2-app-advanced your_project_name

Install Basic Application Template

Here again you possess few options to install the basic application template, you could pick an option given below.

To install “basic application template”, use the following code

composer create-project yiisoft/yii2-app-basic projBasic 2.0.0-beta  (or)

composer create-project –prefer-dist yiisoft/yii2-app-basic basic_project_name  (or)

composer create-project –prefer-dist –stability=dev yiisoft/yii2-app-basic basic_project_name

Folder Structure of Advanced Application Template

After installed ‘advanced application template’, you will get the application like below folder structure.

yii2 advanced application folder structure:

folder_structure

Root directory contains a set of folder.

  • Backend – backend web application.
  • Common – files common to all applications.
  • Console – console application.

PROBESEVEN - Convenience Experienced with Internet of Things!

The coolest thing of today which is been widely conversing about and many IT companies actively building strategies are about Internet of Things. This technology is something that the convenience experienced in past can be seen with multi-fold enrichment as of today and will be far more advanced in future.
Internet of things

The question for the layman may be what is it all about and how it could be made possible?

Here is, what exactly IoT means… it refers to the connectivity and and internet, it might mean that connectivity is among humans but wonder not to know it has been expanded and the interactions are made possible even with objects which we encounter in our daily life. The reality today in most cities and the near future of the rest of the places are like ‘Internet Access’ is something that will not mean much as it internet would become omnipresent and available all time, connectivity works beyond humans passing on to objects. A topic was also discussed on Li-Fi which will supplement the understanding but we have traveled to still advanced developments.

When I say this you may realize better as anything that operates electronically and has an on/off action can be communicated remotely which will be a concept of Internet of things.

Generally, convenience in the past was meant something that is available in the neighbourhood and that which can be reached in few minutes. On contrary the convenience today is massively different which is expected is to have them at finger tips for access.

The prevalent implications are encountered in almost all field which does include the regulations, the government, the policies, technology and all others. You are now to get an insight of the implications IoT created for marketing.

It goes extensively to provide high consumer convenience that challenges the marketing to meet their expectation. The connectivity is so high and goes public that the start on this was by a marketing company who provided the products from the vending machine when it was tweeted.

This relevantly getting the data bigger and soon it is expected as the humans get social there can be an expected social interaction between the things.

When the feel of smart homes, smart watch which function with connectivity and streamlines the regular process it is also interesting that the marketers get beyond and more public about their customers. Imagine you move a product say a pair of  goggles to your shopping cart and this choice of yours is been used to influence many and when you seek to buy one, you are naturally taken to the insight of the product. It benefits both ways you seem to obtain the best while the marketer would certainly multiply the volume of sales.

The lights that gets on automatically switched-on the relatively sensing the reaching distance, which is communicated to the AC checks on the temperature, the refrigerator communicates to the car about the short of grocery, the car parks by the grocery store, the car communicates with the friends car in the social network understanding about the traffic and the signals, the road signals communicates with the vehicles which are heading towards the same lane. Yes! much more can happen think your fuel is on warning, designates to the fuel stations immediately.

It becomes a brave world as when the customer is seen to visit the store and bags with nothing, the sense of dissatisfaction is experienced which is automatically sensed and the marketer would work on the remedy to get the customer back. The world of internet would also be soon known as the chip world which lets anyone track on the desired things. There are wonders happening to safeguard the endangered animals as their move is well tracked and it gets automatically communicated to the forest authority for the safety. The trees are embedded with chips which protects them from deforestation and the list is on and on.

Technology is the big thing happening and the impact of IoT will soon become the widely inter-connected universe.
