New Tech and Bad Effects

The technology that I chose to read about was the Wifi tracker.
It allows you to track people moving around in other rooms.

In the article the inventor Fadel Adib brought up some good examples where the service could be helpful, such as grandma falling in another room or you children. But what I immediately thought of was burglars or killers who could track where someone is in the house and be potential able to see if someone was home with just an app. I don’t like the negative outcomes and possibilities that this app can have. I feel as though developers need to think of all possible scenarios when creating instead of just the positive ones.

I'm just a person tired of standard. The everyday required. Society expectations. So I'm going against it...... or at least writing about it
