Facebook wants to look around your home

01.11.18 10:01 PM

Social media giant Facebook is making its first venture into consumer electronics with a device straight out of George Orwell’s 1984.

The device, called Portal, will serve basically as a $500 self wiretap for millions of Americans, potentially providing corporate, government and hacking snoops a direct audio visual feed into their homes.

Here are some creepy details via The Independent:
The gadget, called Portal, will feature a wide-angle camera that can recognise individual faces.

Through this, it will be able to associate different people with their Facebook accounts, and log them in without forcing them to enter their login details.

It will also be equipped with a 15-inch touchscreen and a range of microphones, so it can listen to what you say and respond to your commands.

In other words, Facebook will not only be able to listen into homes equipped with Portal, but will also be able to identify virtually anyone in the house.
