Given the revelations about a smart TV's listening in on conversations and sending all that data to a "third party" which remains unspecified, I think anything with the outright ability to listen in and basically spy is going to be rejected by most.
I love technology, but it does scare me to see things being developed that would make Orwell openly weep.

Mine is a brain implant with artificial intelligence.
Selectable IQ levels for specific situations.

Brain implant with artificial unintelligence.
Selectable IQ levels for the privileged.
Advertisements flash before your eyes in an induced hallucinogenic trance at regular intervals.
You go to work, stand in one place and drool in your trance as your factory installed exoskeleton enhanced programmable arm zips away at some mundane task.
Welcome to the new world of cybernetic technology, now satisfy your artificial desires to consume as a new age super consumer should in your not so free time.
That's an awfully unintelligent idea. What exact purpose would a human-being have at that factory except be in the way and cost money? The technology is obviously there to make that person redundant.
