In my popular “Everything that’s wrong with IT” presentation, I use various technical gadgets as examples of the traps we tend to fall into when developing IT.
My favorite example of too much technology for technology’s sake has been my internet-connected socks. Unfortunately, these RFID-equipped wonder socks were discontinued after I started making fun of them. But I think I’ve just found a new favorite: A bluetooth-equipped hair brush.
This brush is so advanced that it can’t even be called a brush – it is a “hair coach.”
Don’t over-engineer your solutions.
