The smart hairbrush


As the clock struck midnight on December 31, the year 2016 finally came to an end. There was a hope—after the great political rift created by Brexit, the uncharted territory of president elect Donald Trump, and the deaths of numerous beloved celebrities, to name but a few of 2016’s horrors—that 2017 would be a far more positive affair.

Instead, 2017 has brought with it the introduction of the smart hairbrush. Yes, my friends, no longer must you go without instantaneous feedback on hair pull, frizziness, and brushing patterns via the joys of an iOS or Android companion app as you brush your hair. So many sleepless nights, now saved thanks to L’Oreal and perpetual IoT-tinkerer Withings… More at ars technica.

So how do you describe a product that is smart for the sake of it, that is pointless and that only harms people’s view of smart technology? ‘Utter shit’ would do it. Thanks to Bob for the link.
