Big Brother...or Big Mother

My husband sent me this article today, and although I see the usefulness for energy savings, I can also forsee a great use for parents.

I expect that the technology isn’t quite ready yet, but by the time my son is of the age that I will worry (right now, at five, he won’t watch anything scary or that’s not a cartoon), the technology might be ready. The facial recognition software could check for mom or dad, and not turn on if it’s someone else, and prevent my son from watching channels I don’t want him to watch, or at times I don’t want him watching.

Although, since my son looks so much like his dad, he’ll probably be able to fool the software by the time he’s a teenager!
