"No, it would be horrid...”
(Ray Bradbury, “The Veldt”)
When Ray Bradbury published “The Veldt” in 1950, the smartest things in anyone’s house were the human beings who lived there. Now, as we settle into 2016, the houses themselves are “smart”, and every new gadget has a higher IQ than the previous model.
