I came across this the other day and was absolutely taken aback by it.
Apparently this company, REM-Ads, is hoping to start selling ad space in people’s heads while they sleep! Is this the watershed point for privacy laws?
We all know that it’s very difficult to escape marketing and advertising efforts these days but I do believe that these people have gone a step beyond in the sanity department. Do they really think they’ll be able to get away with this kind of intrusion into our very minds?
If there ever was a time to put the brakes on technology or, at the very least, to step back and say, “Even though we can, maybe we shouldn’t.” this is it.
This is unbelievable.
But then again, that’s what people thought about the internet.
