Amazon Wants You to Put Their New Camera in Your Bedroom

Products like the Amazon Echo are proof of a strange new shift in our culture. Suddenly people are okay with having a device in their homes that they know is listening to them. They’re voluntarily inserting electronic devices into their private lives, which are capable of spying on them and sending the data to private corporations and governments.

At some point our society accepted the idea that trading our privacy for a minor convenience is totally worth it, which is something that would surely be mind-blowing to previous generations. However, that social acceptance is about to be pushed to a whole new level. Today, Amazon introduced a new device to their Echo line of products, called the Echo Look.

It’s basically a camera that you stick in your bathroom or your bedroom or wherever you dress, and it takes full length images of what you’re wearing. It’s being called a “style assistant.” It has a service that “combines machine learning algorithms with advice from fashion specialists,” presumably to give you feedback on what you’re wearing. I’m guessing that at some point, it’ll make suggestions for clothes you should buy on Amazon.

Let that sink in. Amazon thinks that millions of people are going to spend $199 on a camera that is supposed to be placed in their bedrooms, stores images of them, and is probably going to criticize their fashion sense before hawking products to them. I’m not sure what’s scarier. Is it that this thing even exists, or that Amazon’s assumption that millions of people are going to buy this product, is probably correct?

    If people fall for this, and I assume they will, we’re fucked. At some point we gave up the idea of privacy. The fact that people may get some convenience from it is incidental at this point. I think it’s more to do with the fact that people have accepted that everything there is to know about them is already known, so in what sense do we even have privacy anyway. Might as well get something for it.

  • It is not Paranoia

    I want to punch a person who thinks this is a good idea.

  • Martin

    Awesome idea, I might get one to see how long it takes for the whole system to crash in nervous exhaustion due to my complete lack of fashion sense. Oh, wait, you have to PAY them to spy on you and bombard you with their advertising? I get enough junk mail through my letterbox as it is and that’s free, who would want to pay for the same “service”?

    The slaves will get what they deserve… and I hope it is painful and long lasting! There is no hope for the future… how incredibly sad the human race has become…

  • tonye

    I don’t have anything by Apple… my wife has a work iPhone.

    Although I’m starting to sour on Android, not because the OS, but because of Google.

    If you can’t get the people to give up their liberty for security then simply offer hedonistic comforts instead. The sheep will then readily comply. Oh…look at the pretty flashing lights and it talks too. Effing idiots.

  • TrevorD

    And total insanity takes another step forward. Say goodbye Humanity as its getting stript from you at an alarming rate.

  • I weep for the future ;-(

  • Why am I not surprised?
