Just When You Thought It Was Safe... Sharks on Twitter
The Internet of Things, where devices and objects of all kinds are connected and have the ability to send and receive messages, is familiar to us from the everyday examples of tweeting scales and refrigerators that can text us to pick up milk. Australia's Department of Fisheries recently upped the ante by attaching transmitters to more than 320 sharks, including great whites. When a tagged shark swims within about a kilometer of a beach, an alert is sent to a computer that automatically tweets the size, breed, and location of the shark to the Twitter feed of Surf Life Saving Western Australia, providing surfers and swimmers with instant access to that information, compared with past times of up to a day. Western Australia is the world's deadliest place for shark attacks.
