9 cool objects from the Internet of Things

Lynx smart grill

The oft-discussed Internet of Things (IoT) includes everything from smart grills to light bulbs and slow cookers. Here are some of the coolest things that make up the IoT.

The aforementioned smart grill is seen above.  The Lynx Concept Grill is voice-activated and it automatically cooks foods based on user commands. The perfect medium-rare steak is now an option.

Operation of the concept grill is driven by a fly-by-wire system that connects to the ignition and burners via an automated system that makes recipes that have been pre-programmed by Lynx's grillers. It's supposed to hit the market sometime in 2015.
