And this is why you don’t trust smart thermometers…

I saw this clip on the website io9, and it pretty much blew my mind.

Let me explain.

We live in a world where smart technology is now part of our everyday lives.  So much so, in fact, that our every being and essence seems almost dependent on these interactive smart devices.

Which brings me to this very awesome interactive video short.

In Cool, a couple install a programmable thermostat, and it causes more conflict in their lives than a HAL-9000 does in outer space.  And … as an added bonus … you get to choose how the storyline plays out, similar to those old “Choose Your Adventure” books of generations past.

Have a look when you get a moment.   Just a friendly notice, though … there might be some language in this clip that may require headphones if you’re watching it at work.  I can’t embed the clip, but you can watch the video at this link:
