I am exploring the concepts of physical computing in a networked world. To me this class represents a glimpse at what the Internet will transform into within the next decade. A step away from the perception of a personal computer as our only way to experience computing and the Internet and instead to look at alternatives to networking everday interactions and objects.

Main Concepts
Network layers
Network types – star network, ring network
Different Protocols
flow control, packets
IP address
pulses of energy
