Google is looking into the future of things mobile that's one step further than Google Glass. This new way for mobile tech can include such things as advertising on refrigerators, Google Glass with advertising, wearable advertising, car dashboards, and even Smart Homes. My question is where is this tech taking us to? What's the desired result; is it artificial life? Will there be a point where there is too much tech?



We expect the definition of “mobile” to continue to evolve as more and more “smart” devices gain traction in the market. For example, a few years from now, we and other companies could be serving ads and other content on refrigerators, car dashboards, thermostats, glasses, and watches, to name just a few possibilities.


I put this information to ATS to get some real answers. What says ATS?

I seem to remember seeing a article that our fridges would be able to tell us when we needed to buy a item, because the one in the fridge was nearing it expiration. Something to do with RFID chips.

Advertisers would put screens on the inside of your eyelids to show you ads 100% of the time if they could. There is no less scrupulous industry, I swear.

Monetize Monetize Monetize.

It's all about "growth" right? Companies are never satisfied with strong, yet flat sales with healthy profits. It always needs to be MORE.

I remember that also, but the next step (according to advertisers) would be to display something like:

You need to restock these items:

Hellmann's Mayonnaise
Fresh Farms Reduced-Fat Milk
Oscar Meyer Bacon

And why not try some Captain Crunch with your milk, now on sale at Safeway!


Disgusting.

...and since the feds now have carte blanche over you health information via their bailedout insurance companies and Obamacare compliant doctors, and corporate America always works hand-in-hand with the feds, coming soon to a fridge near you:
round the clock monitoring of your at-home eating habits, diet, and likely audio/video monitoring of your kitchens (like those with DirecTV digital boxes and Microsoft Kinect units currently enjoy in their livingrooms.)

Watch in horror as your insurance premiums go up the way smoker's premiums did last year all because your fridge ratted you out to the insurance company and the feds over that 2 gallon a week ice cream habit you have.

I've said the same thing many times! Eat what THEY describe as unhealthy food and we'll find our insurance is void when we most need it!

As for where will it end?
It wont end until we have chips in our heads, and they're already working on that.

There is a fairly large city out here with an Exxon fuel station that has audio commercials that play at the gas pumps while they are running. Forced to hear crap while buying fuel. Trouble is it's the only one on that side of the town so it's drive to buy elsewhere.

edit:

Actual company is

n 2014, they were acquired by Energy Transfer Partners, the parent company of the east coast gas brand Sunoco

They just sell Exxon fuel.

There will always be a cheap fridge available for those of us that don't want this crap in the door. Hell, I don't even want a ice dispencer or water spigot on my fridge. K.I.S.S.

But even the simple fridges of the future will probably be Smart Meter accessible.

Even worse, it might monitor what you buy/eat what with RFID tracking on food now. Everything that goes into the fridge will be inventoried and the data sent to the bacon police.

*knock knock*

"Bacon police. We notice you've been putting a lot of bacon and sausages in your fridge, fatty pants. Open the door, please."

Won't buy one, and if that ends up being all there is, not even second hand, will redesign the door myself to it. My fridge has my own pictures and things on it, its mine, I don't want anything satanic freaks who are harming/hurting/starving/maiming/enslaving others. All the rich.

No thanks. I am obviously old fashioned, but I like my fridge the way it is and I want the right not to be bombarded with advertising all day long. Junk snail mail and spam and all those annoying phone calls is bad enough. Had a phone call yesterday evening when I was in the middle of cooking dinner - they asked me if they could phone me back later on in the evening

No way!

I make it my priority of avoiding these companies. Perhaps they could save money and invest it into providing better customer service so that when I do call them I don't have to wait hours and I can actually speak to a human in the same country.

My home is my haven. I hate the advertising I have to put up with now.

All I can say is hella no Google, why do I need my fridge to have internet access anyway?

Is it going to twitter about last weeks chinese take out that s going mouldy at the back of it? What about my washing machine, will it updare its facebook status when it finally admits its hiding my left socks?

Seriously, technology is going too far now. They are trying to turn virtual into actual reality
