The Internet of Everything and Basketball Star Kyrie Irving #Interop

kylieFrom the 'cool keynotes' files:

LAS VEGAS - The Internet of Everything is literally everywhere.

Even in Basketball shoes and basketballs. At the Interop show I just saw 2012 Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving get on the keynote stage with Rob Soderberry GM of Cisco's Enterprise Biz unit, shooting hoops.

Apparently those sensors can make Kyrie a better players...and considering how many shots he missed on stage, he can use the little bit of extra help.

"Information about my speed and anything i can do to get better I'm ready to do," Irving said.

Soderberry added that he's looking forward to seeing the tech in the NBA too, but from a macro POV the whole point of the discussion is about planting some seeds about how the network of all things will enable people to do new and amazing things.

As a sports fan i'm sold.
