From wallets and hats to stadiums and ambulances, the Internet of Everything is connecting the unconnected. What would you like to like to see connected next?
Cisco is hosting a Tweet Chat designed to answer that very question. Join our conversation by submitting what you would like to see connect next – is it a fish tank? How about your coffee pot? Your pants? The Royal baby? The conversation is hosted live on Wired.com until 7pm PST tonight. Post your best ideas on WIRED or Twitter with @Cisco and #IoE in your post. Whiz kids from Cisco will be on hand, ready to brainstorm with you about how your toaster can talk to the Internet.
Ready to submit your ideas? Join me on WIRED.com now!

Flying cars. Robots. Biometric devices. These are just some of the things I get to think about and research in my role as Cisco’s Chief Futurist. As the Internet of Everything continues to connect more people, process, data, and things it is exciting to think about the possibilities.
Looking at life 50 years ago can give us perspective about just how far we have come. In 1963, push-button telephones were first introduced and the world’s population was 3.2 billion, less than half of what it is today. The next 50 years will be just as revolutionary and life changing, perhaps even more so.

You wake up feeling rested thanks to systems that “know” the best temperatures and lighting for your personal sleep patterns. While brushing your teeth, a smart (very smart) mirror tracks your vital signs and pronounces all systems go. It then suggests a high-protein breakfast, since the intensive financial analysis on that day’s calendar will demand concentration. But first to the gym, where biometric sensors embedded in the fabric of your workout clothes track minute-by-minute progress.
A far-off future vision from Hollywood? Not at all. These technologies are on the horizon and may be impacting our daily lives in years to come. And they dovetail into a massive societal and technological shift that Cisco calls the Internet of Everything (IoE).

In a world of connected people, process, data and things, what would you connect? That is the question of the day as Cisco hosts an all-day Tweet Chat next week with WIRED Magazine.
On Tuesday, July 23 between 6:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. EST, submit an item you would like to see connect to IoE, and Cisco experts like me will be there live to talk about your idea. The latest ideas and conversations from around the globe will be featured on the WIRED.com homepage throughout the day, so be on the lookout for your ideas to appear in the feed. You can add your ideas directly within the experience on WIRED.com, or via Twitter.com. Either way, simply tag your tweets with #IoE and @Cisco to join the conversation.
So, what do you think should be connected to the Internet of Everything? Mark your calendars to chat with us live on Tuesday on WIRED.com, and join the IoE conversation on Twitter until then.

The Internet of Everything portends a world filled with trillions of sensors and while their practical applications seem clear – sensing water loss, traffic patterns, the growth of forests – it’s the unforeseen knowledge that they can produce that is going to be exciting in the future.
Here’s a project that opened a few eyes: Trash Track. Carlo Ratti directs the MIT SENSEable City Lab, which explores the “real-time city” by studying the way sensors and electronics relate to the city around us. He’s opening a research center in Singapore as part of an MIT-led initiative on the Future of Urban Mobility.
