It was an exciting year in the IoT space. And if we've learned one thing, it's that our only barrier to innovation is our own imagination. In 2018, IoT connected the unexpected -- like prosthetic limbs and tectonic plates -- to improve daily life with smart systems. In the coming months, I believe...
