In my opinion, this book should be absorbed in between The Design of Everyday Things and Reality is Broken.

This book conjures a magical "Harry Potter" world where soon ordinary-looking objects will be able to perform extraordinary tasks for us, thanks to the Internet.
Today, many home appliances can be linked together online, and Rose says this "Internet of Things" could extend to include any number of comfortably familiar objects in our daily lives—none of which will require a smart phone or computer to operate. (Think of having a light in your home that indicates the outside air temperature by color, versus using a weather app on your phone. The app gives you more detailed information, but the light tells you the basics of what you want to know in a glance.)
"Enchanted Objects" offers an easy-to-understand explanation of what the Internet of Things is, and what it could be in the future.
