CES, which kicks off Sunday, is supposed to be about making your life better with technology.
An internet-connected ball that watches your pets. Beauty care that uses connected devices to personalize hair products. Connected sensors for your home water system to combat leaks and waste. Even Las Vegas, the city that plays host to CES, the world’s biggest consumer electronics show, is embracing the internet of things to become a smart city.
While gadget makers see such devices powering our future, security experts view the potential pitfalls from all those connected gadgets as more of a sleeping giant. And watch out when it wakes up.
