CES can give you insight into the future of the Internet of Things, at least from the consumer’s perspective. This list of videos is a good place to start, with several on drones.

Big news last week that there is a 1.0 version of IO.js, the forked project of Node.js. Node.js itself had not made it to that milestone yet. New features include asyncwrap, as well as generators and promises included by default.

Firefox 35 now includes a “hello” feature for WebRTC calls. Recipients must be in a browser that supports WebRTC, but it doesn’t have to be firefox.

Very interesting strategic move by Appear.in to make it easy to embed WebRTC chats into your site with a Youtube-style embed link. There is also a wordpress plugin available.
