Jody Victor‘s crew wants to warn everyone that you need to be careful if you are considering buying
smart toys for children. Our warning is 2-pronged.
First is that any toy that can go online via WiFi has the potential to be hacked. There are already some instances of this.
These are just a few toys we know of so far.
The second prong to this problem is this: Will these be new avenues for our (or any) government to track us? Will any toy or device equipped with a camera and/or microphone allow government agencies to spy on us or for them to confiscate them for investigation?
We might need to think twice before purchasing these items.
