The Internet of Things is the future of technology that is already here. Whether you're closing your garage door from a smartphone app or monitoring your home's Wi-Fi connected camera while you're at work, you're living the IoT future.
Soon, many gadgets in your home will be connected to the Internet, so that you can keep tabs on your home, even if you're thousands of miles away. If you want to turn on the lights, or turn off your home security system to let someone in, you can do all that.
That's a great revolution in the way you take care of your home. But, there's a downside that a new product from Dojo-Labs is trying to fix. Your security.
Cybercriminals prove time and again that they'll hack into your digital devices. They use your webcam to spy on you, or listen in on your conversations over your baby monitor. And they're up to no good, including demanding ransom to let you back into your system.
Dojo has developed a security system to monitor all your home's Internet-connected devices. It has two components: one is a device that connects to your wireless router. (See photo above.) The other part is a cute blob, or pebble, that looks like a rock.
