Have you noticed that there are so many technology features that put you in double whammy. Firstly you had to pay a premium to have this unproved, untested feature with dubious claims of efficiency/coolness. Secondly they make you spend more and increase the ownership cost of your assets. Essentially they turn out to be a marketing channels that does not serve your interests.
It is easy to add sensors and technology into anything but does this do any good? Our phones and gadgets are over-loaded with features that we have never used. When will technology stop being a tick in a check-box of a comparison sheet and start playing a vital role. To me a useful technology is one that boosts productivity and reduces wastage. Am I asking too much?
