Now You Have an Oppurtunity to Put Ads in Your Refrigerator, Thanks Google!

May 24, 2014

Remember how advertisements were crammed into Tom Cruise’s every waking moment in Minority Report? That, apparently, is Google’s vision of the future.

In a letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission disclosed Tuesday, the tech giant revealed that it has hopes to place marketing messages in currently ad-free objects like refrigerators and thermostats. “A few years from now, we and other companies could be serving ads and other content on refrigerators, car dashboards, thermostats, glasses, and watches, to name just a few possibilities,” the company wrote. Earlier this year, Google also bought Nest, a company that manufactures smart thermostats, for $3.2 billion. At the time, Nest said that it would not broaden its privacy policy, which currently limits use of users’ personal data to “providing and improving Nest’s products and services.”
