Digital strangers have access to your bedroom: Data protection and the right to privacy is under threat. In 2020, between 25 and 30 billion devices are going to be on the Internet – and many of them are of poor quality and easy to hack. Süddeutsche Zeitung proved how easy it was to get into people’s homes, to get unauthorized access to surveillance cameras in shops, pharmacies and play grounds. Conclusion: The Internet of Things is out of control. Vanessa Wormer, Jannis Brühl and Benedict Witzenberger discuss methods and ethical considerations in the project.
