Let's say you had an IoT device. It would contain a variety of information including latitude and longitude as two attributes that change over time.
Let's say you could record every location along with time, to give a complete record.
Let's take this a step further, and somehow embed a sensor IoT in every atom in our Galaxy. We'd store the Id, Lat, Lon along with time stamp for every atom at every instance of time down to the microsecond.
Then we could use mapping technology to replay specific intervals in time. That would pick up a handful of attributes, but what if we could store others. And record in a big data repository. Perhaps a Graph database to see how different atoms aligned or repelled with other Atoms, discover the secret to 'dark mass' in the Universe.
If anyone has free time and would like some extra credit, please feel free to begin this project. It would be much appreciated.
And so it goes~!
