What Is The World's Most Useless Internet of Things Device?

Watch on YouTube

Every one of those devices exists or is at least being worked on, and because they all contain a computer and are connected to the Internet, they are all vulnerable to hacking and require additional security work by consumers to maintain their safety/security. Would you want to take extra steps to secure your underwear? Your dental floss? Your condoms?

No one wants to take extra steps to use any of those things, and so they won't and the result is that the Internet of Things will make their lives more vulnerable. More convenient, perhaps, but definitely more vulnerable.
