“Internet of Things” #IoT – Help name the friendly cloud entity…

Pt 1227

We have a series of “Internet of Things” projects and products (Tweet-a-watt, IoT printer, IoT camera, etc) – so we wanted to have a cute little friendly icon. Here’s what we came up with, the cloud entity does not have a name. Feel free to suggest one in the comments here or over on Google+

  1. Suggestion: ‘IoTa’ (pronounced like ‘Yoda’) which stands for ‘Internet of Things apparatus’ (or appliance, but I prefer apparatus since it can be singular or plural)

    I can see a spin-off site with the domain which is currently available.

  2. CumuloNifty!

  3. Cloudy! :3

  4. Nimby

  5. CoTi (read “Cody”) Cloud of Things icon
