23 Reasons Why Connecting All Things To The Internet Is Cursed

Ever look around and get the sense that we're living in some sort of techno-dystopia? We get it—sometimes it's cool to have lights that you can dim from your phone or a watch that tells you how many calories you burned, but maybe the 'Internet of Things' has gone too damn far. Once you start connecting every single object in your home to the internet, you become pretty vulnerable when, say, Google is suddenly down, or your WiFi router malfunctions. Sometimes a doorbell should just be a doorbell and a toothbrush certainly shouldn't require regular firmware updates. And who the hell actually wants an Amazon surveillance robot literally flying around their house 24/7?

Anyway, we've got a bunch of examples of bad 'smart devices' from Twitter that might make you reconsider that bluetooth coffee mug purchase.

Robotics company Boston Dynamics went viral today after sharing a video of several of their robots dancing to The Contours' "Do You Love Me?" The video, which garnered a lot of attention on Twitter, is thought by some to reduce the intimidating nature of the machines. While we are still a bit weird about robots, the most intimidating thing about them was their super sick moves. It's a sad day when a robot can out-dance you, but these are the times we live in.
