2.1.4 Electronics that are not on the internet
According to, as of June 2012, statistical data indicates that there were approximately 2.4 billion users on the Internet. This is only 34% of the total world population.
The number of connected devices on the internet in 2012 exceeded the world population. This includes traditional computing devices and mobile devices, as well as new industrial and consumer devices that we think of as 'things'.
Although, this may seem like a lot of devices on the internet, it represents less than 1% of the objects that could be connected. Some examples of devices that are currently unconnected could include microwaves, alarm clocks, and lighting systems.
