Thingful aims to be the Google of the Internet of Things

Thingful wants to be the world's index for M2M sensors, bringing order to largely heterogeneous systems and platforms

With over 30 billion IP-connected devices and sensors projected to be in operation by 2020 the tech world is positioning the Internet of Things to be next big movement to fuel innovation. But much like the evolution of the internet, which saw an explosion in user-generated information, all of that data beckons order.
