Whether you call it the Internet of Things, machine-to-machine (M2M) communication or pervasive computing, things in the environment are getting smarter, and people need to interactive with them. Redlab is a virtual student laboratory which provides summary information on a range of technology, sets of instructions for getting started, and the result of student projects. The intention is that over time, projects will cluster together into themes and each theme will have its own momentum with new projects building on older ones.
