They don't talk about the singularity and internet of things for nothing.

Just two articles to get you pointed in the right direction.

There are hundreds of thousands of such writings and predictions of how this will all play out.

You're quite welcome. One aspect of our efforts here at BleepingComputer is we try to educate when people inquire. Now you know, coffee first before BC. :lmao:

Why does the marketplace keep pushing WIFI (smart) appliances??  Must be because the public wants them right??  I don't own a smart anything, I use WIFI to eliminate the CAT5 cable from the laptop and PC for network access.  Hackers just love these new challenges.

They have been pushing the internet connected fridge for at least 20 years now and it has never taken hold.

 

I vaguely remember a quote from someone at Oracle around '98 talking about how one day your refrigerator would run Java.

 

This new thing with the web cam is silly.  

 

They are some interesting concepts with RFID though where you be able to inventory the fridge complete with purchases dates and other info. 

 

Still decades away though IMHO.
