Connected "Personal Pleasure" Devices: Nope. Nope, nope, nope, nope, nope. Just no.

--The porn/pleasure  industry is huge. Why would you say no to this? You think the technology will be too expensive for it to make a dent in the market?

Re: personal pleasure
I disagree with the IoT statement. I think that many things need to be connected. Imagine a world where everday objects can report they need a repair or some sort of part replacement. 

IoT enables sensors that can provide a safer and more agreeable environment for everyone. And I think it's going to happen whether we like it or not – because companies want to have all products connected. It's beneficial to them.

Re: personal pleasure
I'm voting for remote healthcare and drones as break-outs. Also, the connected personal/pleasure devices. Gotta be.

Re: personal pleasure
Do u think if CES were in another town, let's say...Monroe, NY, a small suburb outside Manhattan, people would bother to go?

Re: personal pleasure
@jastroff

that is an excellent question. hmmmm...probably not. but then again, only big spaces could hold the convention, which leaves the largers cities such as NY, SF, LA, and Chicago. Maybe Cincinatti or Cleveland. Small towns such as Monroe, NY probably don't have a space, right?

Re: personal pleasure
How about some place in Kansas? Or Arkansas? In the middle of nowhere? (Kind of like pre-Vegas)

Refrigerators, Yes!
Of all appliances that should be connected, refrigerators are at the top of my list. I think that now, and I thought that only a few years ago, when my refrigerator failed and I had to throw away all of the food that was at least on its way to being spoiled.

I thought, "If only the refrigerator could have e-mailed me to say, 'I have malfunctioned and the internal temperature will soon be unsafe for food storage.'" Then I could have relocated at least some of the food to an ice chest before it was too late.

The toilet, on the other hand--I don't want to hear what it has to say!

I am a little bit scary for internet of things - if everything has the sensor and built-in business intelligence, then I am afraid that we are at risk - if the program of the computer in car was hacked, can it be remotely controlled by others?
