Lights that track you are cool, not creepy
It’s a sobering paradox of today’s connected digital world: technology that eases our daily lives also comes with its potential dark side. We gaily click away to buy, browse, carouse, collaborate and entertain. In the process, we give away astonishing amounts of personal information that could easily fall into the wrong hands.
And so it is that here at Lux we often pause and reflect on the ramifications of the fledgling internet of things in which LED light networks are the backbone of an information infrastructure, helping to gather and transmit data on everything from people’s location to traffic and parking conditions to shopping patterns to air quality and temperature.
