The internet of things is both an exciting prospect and a scary one. With so much connectivity comes an array of privacy concerns, from manipulation to surveillance. Hacking is also a huge concern as many of the devices spread through this incredible web are not protected appropriately for such a large system that is constantly evolving.
iot connectivity is becoming a growing trend in public sphere. I recently read a story that detailed the story of people getting implants in their hands and head that can connect and control devices. There are even apps on the android for such connectivity. So when we enter a strange in which even our bodies are connected to the internet, we need to exam the limitations and potential security risks associated with human/machine hybridization.
The up side is that micro management of every aspect of life combined with technological innovation has pretty cool prospects for everyday life. The thought that your alarm clock could wake you up earlier according different environmental factors would have positive effects on every part of life. It really represents a step forward into a technological utopia in which everything feeds into everything.
Ultimately we need to consider the positives and negatives but iot is kinda cool in it’s everyday implications.
