The End Of The Internet..Or Just The Beginning?

Imagine every physical object being connected to the Net.

Soon every Internet-connected device anywhere in the world will have its own IP address.

This month's World IPv6 Day served as a test run for a protocol that should dramatically increase how many devices can be connected to the Internet.

The new protocol will be crucial if many more objects—including light bulbs, kitchen appliances, and environmental sensors—are to have IP addresses, connect to the Internet, and send and receive data.

The new system allows for around 340 trillion, trillion, trillion addresses—nearly 50 octillion for every person on earth.
