IPv6 Toy Gallery
This gallery contains a collection of so called 'IPv6 Toys', a collection of devices that are IPv6 enabled and will change how one is living and working in the future.
Of course, in case you know of more toys, don't hesitate to provide them and/or their details to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can list them here.
Advanced Incident Response System
The Advanced Incident Response System (AIRS) is an IPv6-enabled solution that would allow incident response personnel from various local, municipal, and government agencies to communicate seamlessly during an event while minimizing dependencies on the fixed infrastructure of the disaster site. Leveraging next generation technologies like IPv6, network mobility, mobile ad hoc networking, and advanced sensor systems, the AIRS solution would enable responders to communicate securely with each other and with their commanders in real time.
IPv4 makes conferencing problematic in a large amount of network setups due to IPv4 NATs being around. With IPv6 this is not a problem due to the amount of address space and every host getting it's own globally unique address. Devices can communicate in an End-2-End fashion, thus avoiding the need for NAT trickery. This makes setup easier and improves quality of communications.
Forgot to water the plants, or just want to have it exactly done? Give those plants the needed water by controlling them remotely. Want to change the temperature at home? Forgot to turn off the lights or want to turn them on as prevention against burglars? Need a wakeup call? Forgot to turn the gas off? One can easily, remotely, change all of that with this Environmental Control system, which is completely configurable using IPv6.
Need to consult anything on the Internet? Need to restock your fridge? Why not do it from your car? This also allows for remote diagnostics, manufacturer communications, navigation help/mapping/routing and ad hoc connectivity with other cars.
Need to deploy a large amount of sensors and want to be able to communicate directly with them? Using IPv6 you will have a nearly unlimited amount of IP addresses so you can communicate with each and every one of them.
Need to communicate with all your troops? Want to have access to every single bullet in every magazine of every gun of every soldier in your army? Provide them with IPv6 addresses and they will be able to communicate where ever they are.
