    We become nodes in the Internet of Things (IoT), not only because we are monitored and our actions can be predicted and understood, but also because sensors and actuators attached to our body or in our body make us a ‘living’ sensor and actuator, and an active node in the IoT. Also, digital technology amplifies our intelligence and our sensorial capabilities. With this background (smart environments, the IoT, and our amplified intelligence and senses), in this paper we explore humor as it can appear in digitally enhanced physical worlds, with a focus on humor in smart workplaces.
