Why would anyone want a smarthouse?


On Almost Human last night, the plot was smarthomes (I am surprised that they weren’t called iHouses) turning on their owners and killing them. The whole point was that the smarthouse provided extra security (in the form of a security guard with Cruella-de-Ville-esque hair – which would scare the fuck out of me, so I guess that makes sense). But the way it did this was very odd. Intruders were shot by a lasers. How many stray dogs would my smarthouse kill? Though I don’t think I’ve ever seen a dog on Almost Human, so possibly they all have RoboPets in 2048? Anyway, seeing has how all technology can be hacked, it would be pretty stupid to have smarthouse when the guy who you called an asshole could pay some hacker $100 (or whatever hackers going rates are) to basically end your life in a few seconds. Why not going for a smartweapon? Huh? Like, say the smartbat. Or smartremote. Or hell, smartfrontlawn/smartgarden – the bad guys wouldn’t even make it in. I’m sure a smarthouse does all kinds of other stuff but surely companies would make more money through creating all kinds of smartshit. Smartbricks, smartchair. Smarttoilet. And then combine them all together and call it a SuperSmartHouse?

Smartness aside, the episode was great.

Anyway.  I really wish that Sam and Dean’s house had smarthouse that would inevitably turn on them and kill them. But no, instead Supernatural’s been renewed for a 10th season.

Yes, Dean. You’re going to live to cry (and possibly die, be betrayed by Sam and come back) another day.
