The Internet of Things is Scary

The Internet of Things. We are headed in that direction. In some ways, we are already there. What really scares me is that one day a hacker may hack into my fridge and cause my milk to spoil.

In computing, the Internet of Things (also known as the Internet of Objects) refers to the networked interconnection of everyday objects.

LG Scares the Crap Out of People in an Elevator to Show Off Its Monitors

LG has introduced this video of people getting a big scare thanks to the company’s high-res monitors.

To show off just how life-like the picture on its monitors can be, the company re-fitted the bottom of an elevator with the screens. The brand then recorded people’s reactions as the monitors — screens pointed up — displayed what looked like the bottom of the elevator floor dropping out. True, you could probably do that with a lot of monitors, but LG thought of it first. –source
