In this video, Bruce Sterling talks about his spime theory — things, in the Internet of things, tracked through their life cycles. Sterling introduced the concept five years ago. Looking back, what assumptions were incorrect? What did he overlook?

One area Sterling says he underestimated was the robustness of fabbing technology. As we begin to create our own printable products, one day with electronics embedded inside, how will they interact with each other? It’s fascinating stuff.
