Click through for the many ways the Internet of Things is changing our lives.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is like the air: It is so ubiquitous that it tends to be overlooked. But the reality of the IoT, and the machine-to-machine (M2M) sensors that are its heart and soul, is that it is transforming much of what we do and how we do it.

Strategy Analytics released a report last month that predicted M2M connections will grow from 368 million this year to 2.9 billion by 2022. At that point, the firm said, 78 percent of those connections will be on 3G or faster networks. Despite its ability to hide in plain sight, the IoT is a massively important topic. This slideshow merely scratches the surface of the rapidly expanding uses of the IoT.
