Windows 10 still has its new-car smell, but Microsoft isn’t resting on its laurels yet. Recently, the software giant announced that it would be releasing a Windows 10 variant that is aimed squarely at the Internet of Things. First made public last spring, the Windows 10 IoT Core is designed to be used with embedded devices with or without screens, such as the robotic hockey table Microsoft recently unveiled.
But it isn’t the only company that has the Internet of Things in its sights; both Apple and Google are also updating their respective operating systems in anticipation of the coming IoT revolution. Similarly, developers worldwide are working with the AllJoyn specification in an effort to connect all IoT Core devices on the network.
