Gartner adds the Internet of Things to its famous hype-cycle

Gartner is famous for its hype-cycle, which is quoted in numerous publications and presentations (maybe the hype-cycle is overhyped itself?). Now they have added the Internet of Things before the peak of the hype which relates to ‘early adopters investigate’. I remember how RFID passed through the hype-cycle between 2005 and 2009. In 2010 it vanished without reaching the ‘slope of enlightenment’- hopefully the Internet of Things will not share the same fate…
